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 Andrew Birse 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.

    felt it was very under staffed, we were sat quickly but probably the worst seat which i was suprised as walk ins got better seats. took around 20- 30 minutes and no one had spoke to us had to stop a waitress to order a drink, she didnt no the menu at all and had to ask what cucmber was, very poor service over all. food was nice but over all i wouldnt return for the poor/lack of service

    I dined at Attic Restaurant in Malt Dining on the last night of a week long stay in Brisbane. I definitely saved the best for last!. I throughly enjoyed the set course degustation menu and wine paring. The venue was very open yet quiet and a mix of the old building and tasteful decor. The service and food was excellent. I will definitely be a return customer the next time i am in Brisbane.

    Admittedly there were not many present on a mid week sitting, but we had lovely food, good service , and had an enjoyable time. We had our six year old grandson as part of our party, and the Chef and staff went out of their way to make sure he was accommodated.

    The food was superb! It’s obvious the staff and owners care about the quality of the food and the dining experience. The Manager checked in with us twice about how we found the food and we could tell he genuinely cared about our feedback. Ambiance of the dining room is also lovely. Definitely recommend!

    While the food was delicious the service was slow and inattentive. Drinks were slow to arrive. The lamb ribs still had an almost inedible skin left on which was difficult to cut let alone chew.

    Unfortunately we were disappointed to return to Malt, having been several times previously. We felt like we were a bit of a nuisance to the wait staff. The food was good but felt unimaginative compared to earlier visits.

    Dry and tasteless fish, fatty pork chop, grilled broccoli - could barely chew. These meals warranted the price tag of a fast food restaurant. The pressure of waiters to have another drink. We will never be back.

    My wife and I had the set menu, paired with wine. Four courses of very tasty food and very nice wines. There were no markings on the glass as to a proper measure so it seemed up to the server to give the correct amount. I thought this "randomness" could have been removed. Overall, a very pleasant experience.
