The Walnut Restaurant & Bar is one of Brisbane’s longest-running establishments, upholding a reputation of exceptional food and elegant surroundings.

Enjoy a little bit of luxury as you dine in their stunning restaurant, furnished with crystal chandeliers, wood-panelled walls and glass-topped tables. Start off with one of their delightful entrées, including twice-baked Stilton soufflé, slow-cooked Wagyu beef cheek and three-way oysters. For your main, why not try their Fraser Island spanner crab spaghettini, or dive into a forest mushroom ravioli? Save room for the desserts though, as you won’t want to miss the Bombé Alaska, or their Crème brulee with candied orange and cointreau.

Guaranteed to please the most discerning palate, The Walnut offers a lunch and dinner menu of both traditional and contemporary dishes, showcasing the best of local and international seasonal produce. Overlooking the city Botanic Gardens, located within the Royal on the Park Hotel, the restaurant is steeped in history and a must-visit for anyone in Brisbane.

Great food and service. The bar was great for pre-dinner drinks. Hope there will be more creative vegetarian mains (for my partner) when we come back next time. My entree and main of fish dishes were great. Desserts were beautiful.

My wife and i had just 2 days in Brisbane, and were delighted that we had
booked the 5.30pm first table reservation at the Walnut restaurant. The
waiting staff were very courteous and had a good understanding of the menu
options on offer.

We had entree, mains and dessert, my highlight was the confit of Duck that
was cooked to perfection, my wife chose the snapper and commented that
it was beautifully cooked. The red and white wine was well priced, and complimented our duck and snapper main courses.

The Walnut restaurant exemplifies fine dining, and we would have no hesitation in reccomending The Royal on the park as an excellent venue choice for a memorable dinner in Brisbane.

First Table is a great incentive to try new restaurants,' don't delay book a table today' !

Those Florentine oysters were to die for, they were absolutely excellent, as were the rustic fries with truffle aioli. The only negative from the whole meal was that the salmon was a little dry, over cooked, but both of our meals were very tasty and the staff were lovely

Don't let the facade of this 1960s stalwart of Brisbane history fool you. This is an experience from a bygone era. The food, staff and service were impeccable and the Bomb Alaska a treat.
A gorgeous interior all plush and spacious and the perfect steak and slow cooked lamb moreish and flavousome. We had a great night.

What a remarkable evening at The Wallnut. We wanted to talk our children out for a special evening of fine dining. We weren't disappointed excellent impeccable table and bar service. We started with the two starter plates one was seafood with an array of fresh oysters, scallops and calami. The other an array of cured meats just a lovely way to start our dinner. The main courses were as equally exciting. I had the Japanese inspired salmon every mouthful was amazing . We also order the market fish and spanner crab spaghetti Balasimo!! We finished with Bombay Alaska and Sticky Date pudding both a lovey way to end our experience. Memorable evening with our family at The Walnut I throughly recommend that you give it a try. Thank you first table for the opportunity to experience a fine dining experience at an affordable price cant wait to experience more foodie opportunities

I had no idea this gem existed but apparently it’s been here for 45 years, The meals were generous and delicious. My fish of the day was a delicate Barra fillet on a bed of yummy celeriac mash with broccolini. It was exactly what I needed on a Friday night after a busy working week. The decor was classic and comfy while the service was thoughtful, efficient and friendly. The Walnut Restaurant is a quiet, calm escape from the noisy bustle of the city! I’m definitely going back!

Charming old fashioned restaurant. Dark wood panneling, waiters in suits and formal service. I took my non foodie/girlfriend and she was impressed.

Except for the gnocchi dish that neither of us liked the food was very enjoyable. It was neither interesting nor ambitious but that is kind of the point; approachable and well cooked food.

The service was formal but also warm and friendly. The small cocktail list full of classic weighty cocktails is exactly what I like to drink and are good value at $16 each

The Walnut Restaurant gives a fine dining experience in a beautiful location complete with wood panelling and opulent crystal chandeliers.

Entree and main dishes were superb and satisfying. I recommend the Caesar salad followed by 250gm Scotch fillet steak. The sticky date pudding didn't quite meet the standard of the first two courses.

A thoroughly enjoyable dining treat - especially if you can secure the First Table!

Very special dining experience! Lovely dining room with a cosy and relaxed ambience. Our top quality 3-course meal was beautifully presented and served by a very attentive, respectful and informative waitress, Eliana. The Potato gnocchi with mushroom ragout was so delicious I almost licked the bowl and the Coffin Bay oysters were enormous and very satisfying, perfectly presented Kilpatrick style. For mains, the generous serves of Braised Lamb Shoulder and Chicken Saltimbocca were pleasing to the eye, full of flavour and tender. Desserts of Creme Brûlée and Sticky Date pudding were a delectable end to our amazing meal. The extremely talented chef gives great attention to detail and delivers aesthetically pleasing and flavoursome food. We highly recommend this restaurant!

A fine dining experience great for a special occasion or a romantic date, and the food is what you expect from a #2 ranked on first table. We had the barramundi, and the 300gm porterhouse, both were cooked very well and tasted great. Was concerned about bringing my toddler here as we didn't want to ruin the quiet dining ambience for others, but the staff were very accommodating supplying crayons and colouring and the kids meal was almost as good as our mains so that kept him distracted! The waitress was friendly, attentive, and great with my toddler - a nice experience overall, would recommend it to friends.
