We wanted to eat somewhere nice with fresh local food and not too formal an atmosphere. Smolt fitted the bill perfectly.We were able to choose entrees and appetizers to share as well as mains. I love my veggies and the roasted cauliflower with saffron yogurt pine nuts raisins and mint was a lovely taste combination. Mains of duck and Salmon... More

'Smolt' came highly recommended but it was a disappointing breakfast. Food was innovative by name but served luke warm and the taste was not exciting but bland. The staff were excellent and service was top notch. This is a highly priced restaurant but not value for money.

Good food, trendy atmosphere with loud background music. Open kitchen. A good choice if you are visiting Hobart for a few nights.

Our experiences with Smolt were mixed, we went twice, about 4 days apart. The atmosphere is comfortable if a bit self-conscious; modern to the point of being severe, and a bit noisy for old ears. The target market is definitely young professionals. Our first time we both ordered scallop and Asparagus risotto with a shared tomato salad rather than the... More

My husband and I had a superb dinner at Smolt during a recent stay in Hobart. Not only was the food presented magnificently it was cooked to perfection. The staff were extremely knowledgable and attentive (but not obtrusively so). The menu and wine list was varied and displayed fresh produce from the local region. All in all this was one... More

Decided to go to smolt on recommendations from others. Had an enjoyable dinner. Started with oysters 3 ways. Shared entree. Tasty. Main courses included squid fettuccine beautiful. My husband had pork belly. Both very nice. Expensive but worth it. Service was good. Wouldn't classify as fine dining though.

High quality food, but we had a small child, no highchair offered and we were put right at back of restaurant so no view from our table and very dark lighting, but service was good and food also, pricing high so expect to pay top dollar. I would suggest great for couples or meeting venue.

Thank Sue G
