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.

    Table at 5:30pm was a perfect choice for a quiet dinner for 2. By the time we left it got a bit noisier. Food and service were magnificent and the matching wine worked a treat. This place never disappoints.

    Malt Dining has excellent food and prompt service. The staff are friendly and helpful and even remember your favourite meal and how you like it cooked. It is not too noisy- easy to talk without having to raise you voice to be heard. Price is reasonable. I recommend Malt to my friends.

    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.

    Lovely spot. Smaller, more intimate restaurant. We opted for set menu with wine pairing option. Food and wine both very good. Service could have been a little better ie wine arriving at the same time as each course, but generally a really nice experience.

    Ambience , staff and location was great , however the only dish that was delicious was the Rockmelon, Bresaola, Stracciatella, Black Vinegar. The other dishes unfortunately weren’t to the standard offered by its reputation. Maybe just an off night ?

    Fantastic experience - the tasting with wine pairing was exceptional & Cleary a lot of thought, love and time went into finding the right matches. My girlfriend and I both commented how impeccable the service was - and while friendly and engaging, allowed time for us to enjoy each other’s company without interruption. Highly recommend. When we return to Brisbane, we will visit once more - especially as the menu rotates over time.

    Did not expect such lovely restaurant. Greeted nicely by staff members. Restaurant visually pleasing and clean. Nice looking bar area on the bottom. Good temperature of the room. Could do with more cocktail options for drinks but i quite enjoyed my drink. All courses are presented well. The servings were remarkably larger than expected for a set menu. I felt full with the starters. Interesting flavours-some unique and another may need slight fine tuning, however, overall was quite pleased with everything. Fresh food that were quite pleasing to the palate. All courses arrive in a timely manner and kudos to the chef for being able to accomodate dietary requirement. Thanks for a great experience malt dining. D
