Fusion / Eclectic
The Malt Dining Attic has been transformed from a working-class Georgian building, built in 1864, to a stunning contemporary dining experience complete with whisky bar and private cellar dining room.
Executive chef John Speranza plates up a beautiful and satisfying dining experience focusing on close to source dining and paying significant care to dietary requirements.
Two menus are available at Malt with an express bistro offer in the bar and a more refined dining experience in the Attic that showcases contemporary food techniques with a relaxed style service.
Malt dining is located in the Brisbane CBD, close to Eagle St Pier and all public transport. If you are looking for a romantic dining experience or a private corporate lunch Malt dining is the perfect inner-city sanctuary.
We look forward to hosting you and your guests soon.

    From pre dinner drinks in the bar to dinner in the attic, the service was on point. Dinner was amazing and our host awesome making sure allergies were catered for. At the end of the night staff even organized a cab for us when they saw we were struggling to get a ride share home.

    Great restaurant. Could potentially get too noisy for those that might be at smaller tables with bigger tables being arranged nearby. The high celling in the upstairs area we were in helps, but the noise still travels. Food was also great and service was very good, but would be interesting to see what it would be like during a much busier setting. Prices were up there, although being in the CBD, it's expected. Would be happy to visit again.

    Quality was good, but you can't pretend it is upmarket food simply by doing tiny portions.Cpnsidering the restaurant was empty, our meals shouldnt have taken 40 minutes to prepare. Another restaurant that is all pretension with no substance.

    Malt DiningResponded on 11 June 2022Thank you for your review, Donna. We apologies that we didn't run you through the items you were served on the night. I have chatted to the team to ensure that we explain the yummy food in front of you.

    WOW! We went there for their set menu with my parents and husband. This place is amazing, honestly - they were more than happy to accommodate to our dietary requirements. My dad has coeliac and can't eat gluten at all, and he was able to eat everything with confidence!! Definitely recommend.

    Malt DiningResponded on 11 June 2022Hey Silke, We are a bit confused with your review as we definitely did not run out of our 'green vegetables" on the night you visited (10.06.22) We have plenty of the charred broccoli and have not "run" out

    I booked a table but when we arrived there was no table ready even the restaurant was quite empty. We were put on a bench seat and their were crumbs all over the bench which was going to be cleaned off but wasn't. No bread served. Took ages for anyone to take a drinks order. Not the usual experience.

    Incredible food and delicious, creative cocktails. We had the best time last night. Cannot thank you (FOH and BOH) enough for taking note of our dietary requirements and making adjustments as necessary so that we could enjoy a range of the menu options. When the server (I regret not catching her name) came to us with an amended menu just for us, I could have cried. Eating out can be difficult for me but you made this such a special evening. Thank you so much. We will be telling everyone about how wonderful Malt is and will be back soon!

    We chose to have the $89 set menu and added an additional entree of the burrata. Our waitress was very very good even though she told us she had only been working there for a couple of weeks. Our initial drink order of cocktails took a long time to come out & arrived at the table at the same time as our first course & matched wines, a little disappointing. Would have been good for the food to be held back until we had finished our cocktails. The food was all tasty and the brisket outstanding but I felt it lacked a little of that special fine dining finesse that I had experienced at this restaurant previously.

    We had the tasting menu which was reasonable but not a standout. Given that many in the restaurant were eating this menu, the lack of knowledge about the food from the wait staff was disappointing. I did smile when I asked where an ingredient had come from and the confused waiter waved vaguely at the kitchen. Perhaps his lack of English – and he was not the only one – contributed here. And who knew that Cremant had become an actual wine region rather than a description of the non-champagne variety of bubbly wine! Finally, the approach is to have food on one plate where diners then divide up this food between them. This has several consequences: food arrangement is neglected; inexplicably servings for two people come out with an odd number of portions; some of the accompanying elements are over done with oils and creams while others are surprisingly lovely. It was a clever menu selection however, with all of the elements bar one or two preprepared and not cooked to order. This did speed course progression but the impact on the range of elements and textures and thus flavours was limited as a result.
