Breakfast was good. Good selection. Standard breakfast plus really good selection of yogurts. Would recommend chia yogurt. Breakfast was 32 dollars and it's a buffet

Seemingly lost next to the Botanical Gardens and tucked inside the Royal Park Hotel, this grand restaurant serves fabulous food at reasonable prices. Service is top notch. Perfect for a late afternoon stroll in the park followed by a delicious dinner.

The only complaint was the mushrooms weren't to my taste. Massive buffet breakfast covering everything from the basic bacon and eggs to pastries to chia seed pudding.

The Walnut Restaurant is found within the historical Royal on the Park Hotel overlooking the Botanical Gardens. In a lovely location opposite the Botanic Gardens both hotel and restaurant are steeped in tradition.

The Walnut Restaurant Brisbane offers Brisbane's best fine dining experience that other Brisbane city restaurants simply cannot compare to. Elegance returns with shimmering Egyptian crystal chandeliers, polished Walnut wood paneling with gold trimmings and leather seating. With our exquisite a la carte menu and only the very best of service, we offer a charming and relaxed atmosphere for our diners. In addition a series of special functions are held - our chefs design a weekly degustation menu, available every Saturday with paired wines chosen by our Sommelier to provide the ultimate dining experience.

At The Walnut we set out to surprise with both our quality of food and levels of service, For bookings please call us on 07 3112 1650.

The Walnut Restuarant won the Bronze Medal at The Australian Culinary Federation Salon Culinaire 2011, Jimmy Sawyer Restaurant of the Year Competition and in 2016 a ‘certificate of excellence for service’ from Tripadvisor.
