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.

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.

The staff are highly experienced and their manners are very respectful, they were very helpful with our choices of dishes. We felt welcomed and relaxed.
I feel more vegetables on the plate would be good, that’s only what I thought it lacked in.
Our meals were cooked to our likening, thank you for our enjoyment of dinners.

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
