We have dined here a few times and it was always reliably good but it is now as good as any of the top restaurants that we usually choose to dine in when we visit Brisbane. The surroundings are very pleasant and quiet, almost old-worldly. The service is friendly and efficient but not obtrusive. The food was excellent. We each... More

I was looking around for a good restaurant open on a Monday and this popped up. It's an easy walk from the hotel near the Queen Street Mall where I was staying so this was an easy call. I ordered the sea food triple decker (name eludes me) but because I switched the fries for rice, it took a little... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for your kind words! One of the few restaurants in Brisbane to open for dinner nightly from 6pm, our Royal Seafood Tower is an oft-requested extravaganza featuring both hot and cold selections. Normally meant for two persons, some voracious guests have tried to take on the 3-tiered challenge by themselves (only one has succeeded so far!).... More

When staying at the Royal on the Park, one of the joys of the stay was to eat in the Walnut Restaurant. While the staff at the Royal outdid themselves looking after us, our wonderful experience was continued when dining at the Walnut restaurant. Our dinner meal was memorable, the service fantastic and personal. We had the house specialty which... More

We had an enjoyable time and an excellent meal at The Walnut Restaurant. Nice wine and a divine crepe suzette prepared by Marieke. The wait staff (Marieke) and chef were wonderful and very attentive. We can recommend The Walnut restaurant if you are looking for a lovely dinner in a nice atmosphere.

The food here wasn't innovative cuisine but who cares - it was absolutely delicious! Lamb shanks falling off the bone, steak done to perfection, both served with scrumptious sides, sauces and vegetables. Desserts that had us in heaven.
