Reviewer CarolAnn
We just held our daughters 21st at Malt, and booked the outside area at the back. Right from the first discussions it was quite straight forward and easy to organise with the team we dealt with. On the night we had our own dedicated waitress to help with anything and everything, she was supberb and nothing was a problem for her, must say it made mums night that much more enjoyable and hassle free, thank you.
Everybody had a fabulous night and especially the party girl, great venue, great staff, thanks again Malt!

Once Upon a Murder – Murder Mystery
This year we decided to go for something a little different for our staff Christmas Function – a murder mystery which we held at MALT in Grey Lynn – the perfect setting for our evening. The people there were amazing – we had the court yard to ourselves which we were able to decorate with fairy lights, posters and Christmas decorations – whatever we wanted the staff there made sure it happened . With their help our night was nothing less than perfect. Not only was the food delicious but the service was excellent – they even got involved and tried to guess who our murderer was! I would definitely recommend MALT for your next event. I will be going back there - thats for sure.

Reviewer Penguin96
Very disappointing meal, food and service really bad. There were 5 of us and we all ordered the tempura battered fish with beer battered fries for $19. The fries were nice but am pretty sure the fish was frozen and very possibly out of a cardboard box. Didn't smell too nice and tasted soggy and unpleasant. The fries were good and I enjoyed my side of potato gratin but some of us couldn't even finish our meals. The service was appalling though, it was a Wed night so not packed at all but we were there for over 3 hours and after taking our orders initially (which took ages) they never came back to offer us another drink, not once! Malt would have made more money if they had as we quite enjoyed our wine and might have ordered more. Then once we'd finished our meals our plates just sat there for ages. Our ginger cake dessert was stodgy and flavourless, to their credit they took those off the bill so that was something. Love the decor etc of Malt and is a great position, prob great for a beer and fries on a Friday night but definitely won't be going back for another meal. On the whole found it frustrating as I can't afford to go out much and wish I'd just saved my money.

Thank you for your feedback. I have spoken to the staff who served you on the night and we are taking steps to fine-tune our approach and ensure that service is consistently attentive. I am sorry that you felt let down by the standard of the food that night but I would like to assure you that the gurnard used for your fish and chips was definitely fresh, we do not use frozen fish in any of our meals. We hope to see you at Malt again soon so we can take the opportunity to improve on your last experience.

Malt Bar used to be my local but since moving out of the West Lynn area (in search of more affordable house prices!) haven't been back nearly as often as I should.
We visited Malt with a pretty big group yesterday (Saturday) - wasn't as busy as I was expecting given the weather bomb but still had a great vibe.
The foods pretty good really and well priced - the group shared quite a few tapas - of the selection my favourites were the pork spare ribs and the marinated olives - awesome flavours.
Monteiths Bar also so you can't really go wrong.
If only I those damn property prices would drop - I could quite easily see Malt bar becoming my second home again!

I've been to Malt on a number of occasions always having a good time. Love their tasting platters. The atmosphere's always relaxed. A great place to chill out.

Having recently moved to the area I wanted to check some of the local drinking and eating spots out. Having heard mixed reviews i still wanted to visit Malt am soo glad we did. The first visit was a Friday evening and the place was quite full but still a range of seating around, more a tavern than restaurant but that is more my style, except the service and food are a lot more attentive and gourmet, even the beer battered fries are awesome. I definitely recommend the platters such good value for money and large enough to take care of dinner hunger pains, the cool thing was they had a happy hour and live music, this girl can sing!!! All this just round the corner!!! You have to sit out side the courtyard its really sweet a bit small but with a roof that opens and closes due to weather has me thinking we could spend many an afternoon or night out here especially if that fire is cranking. So that's just what we did heard there was a DJ playing on Sunday afternoon and came to check it out again the place was busy with a cool atmosphere. Malt Restaurant & Bar rocks I wondered why-it wasn't always humming but the staff had told me they have new management so however is now running the place keep doing what your doing mate and we will return with friends (once we make some)

I have had a few great meals at malt for at lunch for a reasonable price and would come on a more regular occasion. However the meals take about 30minutes to arrive at the table and i am unable to spare this much time for lunch. If they halved this time to make a few meals i would make it a weekly lunch. What i don't get it that barely anyone else is dining there, yet it still takes this long..
