Restrained old style.

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

In Brisbane for the evening, I googled Michelin Star Resturant & The Walnut popped up. Now I know it isn't a Michelin star, but the Chefs Hat people seriously need to call in and eat here. The food is modern Australian with class. The restaurant staff were exceptionally professional and obviously well schooled in their art. I would rate the... 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.

My husband and I booked a meal here for our first wedding anniversary. We were lucky to have Frederick as our chef and even luckier to have Allen as our waiter. Allen arranged for Frederick (the head chef) to make us a personalised degustation menu, based around our culinary preferences. Each dish was better than the last and Allen was... More

Invited by our daughter we enjoyed an excellent degustation Menu incl wines at the Walnut restaurant. We thank Rudy the restaurant manager and his kitchen team for making our evening unforgettable. We highly commend to try their degustation menu. The food is top quality and the matching wines are beautiful.

Ate at the restaurant every day, while using a room upstairs for training. Banquets staff looked after us upstairs & down. James is an exceptionally obliging & cheerful young man - can't recommend him highly enough. The other staff were lovely too. The meals were magnificent. Combinations I never would have put together - but all so delicious. For example,... More

We stayed at Royal on the Park many years ago and we were delighted with the refurbs to the rooms but the best surprise was the restaurant. What a find. This is a place that I would go back to even if we were not staying at the hotel. I loved that the head chef came out into the restaurant... More

Dear Guest, Executive Chef, Frederick Marechal, has a habit of popping into the restaurant to interact with our diners, sometimes to source feedback and sometimes to reveal a cooking secret or two! He encourages his team to meet our guests towards the end of service and to seek ideas for inspiration and improvement. He hope to be able to entice... More

Unfortunately we made the mistake to declined the Brekkie offer as we thought 27.50 (warm/cold) is expensive. We went somewhere and payed more for much less. The warm buffet from bacon, eggs to fried rice and everything between. Muesli, Bread, Danish, large fresh fruit, juices selection, you can make your own fresh. N espresso coffee and free News Paper.

Dear Guest, We hope you enjoyed your stay at the Royal on the Park Hotel. Our buffet-style Full and Continental breakfasts are always a hit with our guests. Using the freshest ingredients, our cold cut meats and French cheeses seem to disappear very quickly each morning! We hope you will join us in the Walnut Restaurant on our next visit... More
