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.

I highly recommend The walnut, We recently had our anniversary dinner at the restaurant on a Sunday night.
We were a little anxious actually because we have had a few expensive hit and misses of late, However we were very happy with the walnut!
We had three courses or stunning well presented dishes including the shared seafood plate
As mains the chicken and duck with a side of delicious greens.
Although we were satisfied we went ahead with dessert pared with coffees recommended by our lovely waitress ( Elianna)?
The whole experience was just beautiful.
We will definitely be back.

Excellent food and the restaurant has a nice atmosphere. Although it is actually a very large room, it is cleverly divided so it doesn't feel like a cavernous dining hall. Our poor waitress was having a "clumsy night" and kept dropping cutlery but she was most apologetic and it didn't spoil our evening at all.

My husband and I are very novice at first table but decided to try it out for our wedding anniversary and we are so glad we did :) The service was fantastic and we felt like we were given the best table in the house. We started with the duck croquets which were delicious but the highlight was the porterhouse steak with a blue cheese soufflé covered in an amazing red wine jus!! So delicious!! Meal sizes were remarkably generous :) All in all thankyou first table for having this restaurant listed

This really is the best dining establishment. I’ve been twice now and I love it. This time I took my four year old daughter with us. They took time to make her welcome and the options for kids are great, simple meals children will usually eat and food portion sizes. The staff are brilliant.

If you want a special dining experience where everyone is welcome and the food is fantastic. This is really the place. I’m just sad I can’t eat here every day. Might have to move to bris Vegas!

A nice dining atmosphere for old-world style of detailed walls, leather furniture and chandeliers. The waiting staff were very friendly and attentive despite many diners during the night. Don't go pass my favourite dessert, the Bombe Alaska!! We had an enjoyable evening.

The food was exceptional, with friendly attentive service. The gnocchi was my favourite- so delicious and the creme brûlée was the best I’ve had in a long time. The contreau and orange zest is a nice twist :) We will be back!

We return time and time again to the Walnut room every time we want a "special" dinner. The food and service are always excellent, and the ambiance is just right. Not too flashy or ostentatious.

The staff were welcoming & politely explained the terms and conditions of the reservation with first table to ensure that we enjoy our dinner as much as with First Table. Our waiter was wonderful and the food was exceptional. We would have ordered more if we could have fit more in our tummy. I see why Walnut Restaurant has such great ratings and with first table can’t complain about anything to be honest. We loved it.

Hi there :)

Thanks for having us dine as a part of your First Table promo.
We had a lovely dining experience. The meals were of generous portions. We couldn’t even squeeze in dessert.

I’ve always wanted to try this restaurant. Finally I have!

We had fresh oysters, pan fried gnocchi, porterhouse steak, crab spaghetti and creme brûlée.

Portion sizes were good. The standouts were the oysters and the soufflé which accompanied the steak. The wine list was very good, my partner and I both chose white wine.

The customer service was faultless. The staff were fun yet attentive and polite.

I really loved the dining experience. I’m sorry I waited so long. It’s definitely one to have on your list of favourite places.

I’d add a photo but my photos wouldn’t do it justice.

We had a great evening at The Walnut Restaurant. The restaurant has a wonderful ambience, ideal for an intimate dinner. Our sourdough starter was warm and fresh, and the sea salt flakes gave it a perfect zing. We each had a steak for mains, and both were cooked perfectly. I thought the vegetables resting under my steak looked a little mushy, but WOW, amazing flavours. Chef has done well when he can make a kipfler potato taste so good!! I wanted to try the stilton souffle on my partners plate, but he finished that off too fast! He said the field mushrooms were fabulous, and the cherry tomatoes were an ideal accompaniment. If there was anything negative, he thought the cheese plate he finished with was a little ho-hum. But my Chocolate Tian dessert was YUM!!! If we were not in public I would have licked the plate. The staff were all so charming and professional, and at this time of year, wait staff are entitled to be getting a bit frazzled. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone wanting a lovely, romantic dinner.
