Fusion / Eclectic
The Attic of Malt dining 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 had the degustation and it was amazing. I was really impressed and would definitely recommend. The portions were quite large as well, which was rather refreshing given I often walk away hungry now -a-days when I have fine dining.

From the service to the food and atmosphere, outstanding, small menu done exceptionally well. Four of us had the tasting plates, 6 courses of well thought out extremely tasty food. In fact the 6 course was probably one course to much, great value and would recommend to all, and a very well made Whisky sour to start.

That was a first class tasting experience. So many fine flavours working together. Wines matched to the courses was a great experience.

Very cosy restaurant tucked away in a lovely building. Food has always been excellent. We went here most recently for our anniversary and received a little bottle of french champagne from the restaurant which was a lovely gesture.

This was our first visit to Malt, and most definitely will it be our last!
The food was extraordinarily good, the staff excellent and the ambience perfect!
Loved the personal touch for our anniversary too.

Always charming and attentive service. They know their menu and the food combinations really work- it’s nice to go somewhere that can cook better than your household.

We had the tasting menu (Veggie option and standard)and it was amazing. Each course got better and better.
Although my wife and I were fit to burst near the end of it, the food so so good, we had to persevere.
Great service and great food.
We would definitely go again.

We had a nice romantic diner at Malt.
No rush between the dishes, the tasting menus were interesting (both the vegetarian and the main one) and well balanced.
Dessert could be a bit more fun but I am more a "salt" person. Will definitely go back if the menu is renewed.

Outstanding service, the food was absolutely sublime, hard to pick a standout dish, but the Trout and the Pumpkin Wonton are at the forefront. Highly recommend getting the pairing drinks to your menu as they were superbly matched. Can’t wait to visit again.

We had the 6 course omnivore menu and found some of the dishes quite unpleasant due to the flavours. Although technically cooked well, we found some of the combinations of flavours unbalanced and bizarre. Additionally although the menu described BBQ cauliflower we were served one stalk of broccolini? The pumpkin wontons were delicious though! Service was pleasant however they did forget to bring one of our drinks until reminded. Overall we were disappointed given the cost of the meal and we wouldn't be likely to return.

I can't fault our dining experience at Malt. The food was incredible, and drink pairings were exquisite. Service was flawless. It was a very special treat for my 40th birthday. When another special occasion arises, I would love to return here.

1. The paired drinks were unpleasant and detracted from, instead of complimenting the
courses.
2. They count the Amuse as one of the courses for the food component but don't
include it for the drinks component so you get 6 courses but only 5 drinks.
3. The Amuse was a tiny piece of pork in the middle of a store bought taco so it was
mostly just mouthfuls of dry bread.
4. The trout, pumpkin dumpling and cauliflower dishes were terrific, however the beef
dish was very ordinary and the dessert was so incredibly tart that it was inedible.
5. The courses were very big and came out too quickly so the evening felt rushed and
uncomfortable.
6. Despite rushing us all night, they then left us sitting for considerable time
without bringing us the bill so we ended up having to pay for our $300 meal at the
counter as though we were at a fast food chain.
We will not be going back to Malt Dining.

Perfect amount of food, great variety & taste. Matched drinks are amazing & we loved that they are not all wines. Also great value for a 6 course meal, we’ll definitely be back!

Service was the worst I have had, the food was cold and I wasn’t told I was to be seated in the smoking area outside. The guy that served us was rude.
I won’t be coming back or recommending to anyone.
