Smolt was on "my list" for years. It was basically the only place I had heard of in Hobart besides the market! The food was nice but more of a visual feast than one for the other senses. The flavour combinations did not rock our worlds, unfortunately and the service was slow, particularly since is was fairly quiet and there... More

Simple great food and service at a price that seems a bit above the Hobart average. Well worth it for a special occasion. The arancini balls were super good.

Staff were friendly, but restaurant was so noisy we could barely hear each other. Food was ok, all overly seasoned/salty and overpriced for the quality. Fine dining prices for cafe quality food.

We dined here last night on a three day trip to Hobart. We enjoyed Smolt but didn't love it. The service was good and very friendly. The fit out is clean and smart - concrete floors, timber and leather chairs. The wine list was well edited, and had a good selection of Tasmanian and other wines (as well as Moo... More

Our party of four all enjoyed their experience on Easter Saturday evening. We were seated at a spacious table close to the kitchen area ( a positive!) and received well- paced service. Our waiter seemed well informed on menu items and helped us with our choices. I had the mussels dish featuring a selection of different sauces as entree (... More

On a recent trip to Hobart we visited Smolt for dinner. The food was wonderful. We ordered the shared lamb shoulder and it didn't disappoint. Our friends had the shared chicken dish and they said it was so good. I would definitely recommend a meal at this restaurant.

Had a very nice dinner here last night, would recommend it, although I'd say it is 'Good to very good' rather than great... Everything we had was very tasty, with nice flavours and well cooked proteins, but nothing was particularly memorable, more solid than anything... Service was good and the ambience is lively and friendly, reasonable value too. Standout dishes... More

I loved this place. We went to a few of the upper market restaurants and this was by far the best. Great atmosphere, service and the food was sensational! Great wine list to back it up as well. You get what you pay for - entree to share, 2 mains and 2 deserts plus a few wines between us =... More

Having visited this place as part of a food tour, and also having recommendations from a chef, we visited as a last evening meal in Hobart before moving on. Although in the pricier bracket, the quality of food was well up there. Dined on cape grim grass fed steak, duck ragu and spelt parpadelle, and the Smolt version of fish... More

We went for dinner. Food was great; service was excellent... BUT I am vegetarian and there was only ONE vegetarian option for dinner (apart from vegetable sides). It was gnocchi and was very good - but I would have preferred to have a choice. It's a pricey place and I expected to be better catered for.
