Thought we'd give this cafe a third and final attempt at being a good dining experience and it was so bad, again! We booked via opentable and they didn't have our booking so we had to wait for a table anyway. Once we finally sat down it took 45 mins to get all of our coffee orders out (because they gave us the wrong coffee) and over an hour or so to finally get food. Only one server and it was Sunday morning (super busy). The manager wasn't very apologetic and the waitress suggested that we get one free coffee for the waiting and misunderstanding. This cafe has a weird culture where the people who live nearby think they should have their food and coffee before other customers - and they do. We saw so many orders go out to other customers before us and we had definitely ordered before them. If you're not in this weird clique I would suggest steering clear! Quite expensive for what it is too. Food was okay.

We went here on my birthday and found the restaurant as we had a Good Food Restaurant voucher to use (we both have never been). Needless to say, we were so impressed with everything Malt Pier offered. The view, ambience, service, and of course the food - was to die for. We will definitely go back!

We had a lovely lunch, the wait staff were attentive (maybe a little too much but they didn't have too many other customers - I think mainly the residents of the Pier apartments come here - the food was very good, limited menu due to upcoming changes (would have been good to see this reflected on the website so we could have made a more informed decision when choosing a restaurant). The kitchen staff need to remember they are in an open kitchen and everything they say / discuss can be heard by all diners. All in all a good experience but probably won't return in a hurry.

I was impressed with Malt Salt on first two occasions but disappointed last time, meal was very small and had to fill up on dessert. Wait staff disorganised and offhand.

I definitely recommend this quiet little restaurant on the river. Efficient, attentive and informative service, exquisite flavours in the duck breast dish, lovely passionfruit brûlée and brilliant long black coffee. Thank you for the recommendation to match the Pinot Noir with the duck - a beautiful wine. The whole meal was very well priced considering the quality and presentation of the food. A great place to treat someone special or visiting the area.

We went for breakfast. You MUST have the toasted banana bread with pistachio butter. SO GOOD! I had the folded omelette and a long black macchiato. My partner had the savory mince and a long black macchiato. When we were seated our server advised that they just got in 2 large tables and to be ready to order in 30 seconds in order you'll have a much better day. We laughed but since we had been there before, we were ready when he came back to take our order. It came out quickly, which was good. :-)
Be sure you make a booking, they get busy and you don't want to miss the banana bread!!
They also have take away coffee if you are in a hurry and just want a good cup.

Was an good experience until we went to pay the bill and we were charged $24 for sparkling water. We were asked if we would like unlimited sparkling or tap water. The water was filled into bottles from a zippo machine, not unsealed bottles of sparkling. So FYI - unlimited does not mean complimentary, and would we have still been charged $24 if we chose tap water?

We went there for my sister-in-law's birthday brunch. It was strange that they asked the occasion upon booking but there was no arrangement whatsoever. It was just an average visit.

Wonderful food and service, in a stunning riverside location flooded with light - great for lunch. The sous vide duck was delicious, as was the roast chicken lunch special. Excellent value for such great quality.

The food and service was great but the seating was very limited and lacked sufficient space to seat a pushchair, we were therefor left sitting in full sun with a newborn.

The setting of Malt Pier is lovely and the service was excellent. However I found the menu to be very limited and the meal ordinary. It is an extremely small restaurant but that would have been fine had the food been excellent. Quite disappointing.

I was very happy with the overall experience, although the wait staff could be more attentive to their customers. They focused on the task they were doing, and did that very well, but they had no idea of what was going on in the restaurant. A good waiter will scan all customers each time they walk through the venue and pick up on any needs if there are any at that time.
Thanks it was a good night.
