This restaurant is situated in Wenley House, a heritage building in Brisbane and has maintained the character of the building. Even though we were early for our booking, we were greeted warmly and given a seat in the downstairs bar until the upstairs restaurant opened....A nice warm feeling in the bar, and the number of whiskies on offer would suit any whiskey lover. The menu and wine list were not extensive, but were sufficient. I guess with Covid reducing trade, an extensive menu would be hard to justify. Both mains we ordered were more than enough for our needs and were appreciated and enjoyed. The menu is different and a visit there is well worth the effort.More

Nicely renovated. The atmosphere was lovely for a date night or a few couple. It’s nice to have a drink downstairs before heading up to the restaurant. We enjoyed the entrees and the wine selection was great. My husband had the ocean trout and I...had the beef fillet. The entrees were the stand out. The beef was perfectly cook but a Lou too much going on with the jus and then a miso gravy. Too many flavors. We would come back but choose differently on the menu.More

OMG! This restaurant is sensational. Ambience is classically elegant with an edge. We ordered the degustation menu and it wowed us from the first dish! Second, third, fourth, fifth - all dishes are elegant with their flavor combinations and really you cannot fault anything about...this head chef - his team all help deliver a sensational and epic experience. I highly rate Malt Dining and I will be back. Wait staff were brilliant and on the ball. .Thank you for the experience.More

Didn't book for a Tuesday lunch. No need. Small space but well patronised. Very different menus and my choice was the blackboard special of 4 items for $39. Serious wine list but quite pricey. Service, OK. Bit annoyed that I was not informed that there...was a credit card surcharge. Overall, quite nice.More

Love the paired menu. A great flavour and texture experience. A surprise when each course arrives. Dishes we might not otherwise order, but love the thought that goes into the menu.

My fiance and I dined at Malt last night for our 5 year anniversary. When we arrived, there was a small bottle of champagne and a card congratulating us on our anniversary on the table - a small and thoughtful detail that set the tone...for the remainder of the evening. We decided to splurge and get the degustation experience with the wine pairings - totally worth it. The food and wine was exquisite. I especially loved the first drink, a mocktail called the Sage Bush Swizzle. Let's just say, I'm not huge into gin, but if all gin cocktails tasted like that, I'd be drinking it much more often! My favorite dishes in the degustation menu were the wantons in brown butter and the broccolini in green curry but they were all amazing! The food was only outshone by Malt's staff who were so lovely and attentive. They asked about our anniversary, joked around with us, and were delighted to find out we were getting married next month as well. It seemed like they truly cared about us beyond our dining experience. We really can't say enough good things about Malt, the food and the staff. It was such a lovely evening, and we will be back soon!More

We went to Malt for a celebration dinner and had such a beautiful night. I am a terribly fussy eater and went based on their menu I had viewed the week prior, however we happened to go on the day that they changed their menu...and there was nothing on the new menu I could eat. The chef had enough ingredients left to make me some of the old menu's dishes and they really didn't have to do that but they were so kind about it and it saved the evening. The food was really good quality and delicious. The dining room is cosy and charming, and the staff were all super pleasant.More
