The Monthly Special - Excellent

Great value meal and service. The staff who waited on our table were friendly and helpful. The food menu was varied and the food freshness quality was 1st class. Wine by the glass was good value and a large wine choice on offer. All the presentation and service was exceptional.

Reservation and table location were good, staff very friendly. The lamb rack, one of their signature dishes was served with salad and an Idaho potato - hardly fine dining. Added to that the lamb was well done instead of medium as ordered. The bill included a bottle of wine we had not ordered which put a damper on the whole... More

If Brisbane residents think this is an eatery just for in-house Royal on the Park guests then they are missing out on one of their city's true culinary delights. My wife and I dine there regularly and are always impressed by both the quality and variety of the food, not to mention the excellent service. Nothing is ever too much... More

Have had breakfast here each time we've stayed. The service and selection is very good. With the full breakfast seating you are looking over the street to the park. The staff are very helpful.

We were looking for a Degustation meal to celebrate our anniversary, and were fortunate enough to rediscover Walnut Restaurant via their Internet site. Walnut Restaurant at Royal on the Park (the hotel was previously known as the Park Royal) was an old, high-class standard in Brisbane for many years (actually since 1969). However I had not been there for many... More

My daughter and her fiance took me here for dinner. I loved the decor of the restaurant - very stately. The food was beautiful and it was so nice to have wait staff who clearly enjoy making the customer feel special. Absolutely beautiful experience all round - highly recommend this restaurant.
