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.

We asked for a nice table to celebrate our anniversary. The staff gave us a wonderful corner table. The vegetarian degustation was amazing. So happy with the meal and the service, thank you.

Sold out of oysters and the pork neck was over. Staff good but mine was a little inexperienced. Hard atm so not really an issue but the food should have been better.

We had an absolute awesome time. The food was fantastic and the service was first class. As my wife has some food allergies, everyone made sure to accomodate for her and the chef went out of his way to make sure all was safe for her.
This is now my favourite restaurant in Brisbane - Thank You team Malt xxx

Food quality and service was good but limited choice for mains. Only one meat option out of a choice of 4 dishes. Decore was a bit tired - 90s (varnished wooden window sills that make pine turn orange) and half hearted attempt to update what could actually be a beautiful space. See Walters wine bar for inspiration and food options. Similar genre but contemporary twist on an old building done better.

Very nice evening to celebrate our anniversary. Food was excellent and being vegetarian there was a great choice. The waiter explained everything very clearly and was attentive throughout our dining. Low lighting and rustic decor completed a lovely experience.

We were there to celebrate birthday for 2. Ambience is fantastic, service is excellent. Just a small comment on the crispy duck leg dish slightly over salty.

Great atmosphere in an intimate dining setting. Vegan options were reasonable. Wine pairings were okay, but the balance between saltiness and sweetness of the dishes to complement the acidity and flavour of the pairings needed some work. Overall a good night out.

Every year we plan to go to a new place for our anniversary, but somehow we always end up going back to Malt, because we know we'll have amazing food and a great experience. The staff are friendly and super efficient, the food is top notch, and there's always something new on the menu to look forward to between our visits. There are great vegetarian, GF, and DF options too. The warm and cosy interiors make it the perfect place to celebrate a special occasion with a loved one or a small group.

Loved the venue, however didn’t appreciate being rushed out the door half an hour before we were due to be out.

I would recommend to a friend if I felt they were not going to be rushed out the door
