I have been to Malt a handful of times and it has been amazing in the past. This time the pork belly ordered was not tender or crispy (though we had checked when ordering that it would be) the green beans were over cooked. The fish and the oyster blade steak were good. Nice wine list. Malt brownie was great... More

Spectacular ambience is to be had at the upstairs restaurant at Malt Dining - the rough, moody & rustic atmosphere seemed to bode well for a private meal of delicious proportions. Complete with napkin-placing wait staff, you should be in for a winner especially when the menu has a salivary response just by reading the descriptions. When paying a decent... More

This review is for the bar only. I have come here twice now, and both times had very solid cocktails, made by an Irish bartender who clearly knows his stuff and loves his craft. Whilst there is an extensive cocktail menu, you can also ask for your favourite, or tell him your general wishes and have him concoct something new.... More

We arrived, late as I had told the uber driver the wrong address. There was a nice card on the table for my mum which I thought was a lovely touch! We sat down and ordered some drinks. Our waitress was very nice, friendly and attentive. All of the food was very nice, although our fries were too salty and... More

It has been two years since I have eaten here; and it is still as good as ever. In fact, I would say that things were probably even better. I do like the fact that when you order wine by the glass it is poured table-side. Not an overly extensive menu but to me that indicates that the chef is... More

A great location in The Cellar for a group of 16 friends with great food and wine and atmosphere for everyone to move around and talk as loud as they want without disturbing other customers. We had exceptional service from our host Vivien from Malt who looked after us all from arriving at the bar to the end of the... More

We dined as part of a wine makers evening. We had a 5 course meal with matching wines and champagne on arrival. The food was amazing so I will definitely recommend it and return to try the regular menu.

Malt dining's atmosphere was amazing, the food was impeccable and the service was also amazing. Went there for a special dinner with my boyfriend and the food was divine. I reccomend the chef's souffle for dessert! The portions are designed to enable you to eat entree, main and dessert. (they arent huge, but after all courses you are pleasantly full)... More

Thank you for you kind words. Our new menu will be out in 2 weeks and hope to see you again soon. Rest assured the souffle will remain with a twist. More
