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.

    I was very disappointed when the staff said that I couldn’t get the vegetarian set menu as it’s only for two people. Few months ago my husband went there alone and had a vegetarian set menu. I was very disappointed about that.

    The restaurant is in a lovely very intimate heritage building. It is a small space that is great for a date. I had the artichoke starter which was very nice followed by the pumpkin main course which was lovely too but three slices of pumpkin were too much. I would have preferred two slices and some more sides. I will be back.

    Our mains / big! We’re lovely! Quail and brisket. Really disappointed in the couscous, flavour was fantastic except probably 4 kernels of charred corn, way too many currants , hardly any couscous! Just such a mean half bowl. Not happy! Charred broccoli beautiful

    I have always enjoyed dining at Malt- not a regular customer. The only mistake I saw at lunch was allowing so many Richmond followers through the door. But the results last night-great game, both teams.

    Maybe my 5th visit over the last 5 years, but one of the best dinners my friends and I have had for a long time! Some of our favourites were the scallops, quail and squid. Ending the night with the best version of the Malt brownie I've had was an extra bonus. Chef Michael has really returned this place to a high standard of menu and food, so will obviously be back ✌🏿

    Trying to hard with the dishes, over powering sauces that simply didn’t work. Side dishes also had sauces with them that did not compliment the main dishes. Less is more. We were sadly very disappointed.

    We really enjoyed most of our meal - food was delicious and the service waa great! The starters were delicious, the brownie was to die for and the portions generous. Only downside was the lack of tasty vegetarian dishes on the main menu. The only option was pumpkin and that was underwhelming - 3 slices of charred pumpkin - a big let-down. A restaurant like Malt can do much better to cater for plant-based patrons.
