The food at Smolt is superb. The service is equally good (but see below). Quibble: I ordered a Tasmanian apple cider. The waitress brought the ice-cold bottle, and halfway to the table and without asking me, starting pouring it into a glass filled to the brim with ice. (Why ice, anyway? You don't drink beer with ice!) When I said... More

I understand Smolt is fairly new to the Hobart scene however the fitout, food and service is very well planned and executed. Not the cheapest mains around for this standard however very competitive. We had the salmon mains which were done to perfection. The venue is a little hard to find as it is at the rear of Salamanca Place... More

We were recommended Smolt by our hotel receptionist who said it was the place she liked to eat. We weren't disappointed: exceptionally friendly welcome and service, very high quality food and a good (if slightly expensive) wine list to choose from. Strongly recommended.

Battled to get a reservation- book early. Food was excellent, different, full of flavour, exciting. Main course could have been a bit bigger, but everyone's meal was well prepared, well presented and delicious. Service was friendly, efficient and knowledgable. A must visit.

Smolt's food is well made and tasty. Great combinations of flavours, especially with the vegetable options. Especially friendly and attentive staff. Recommended

I came here based on the ratings and it was one of a few that was still open after arriving from an evening flight and within walkable distance from my hostel. I also like that they use local food to a certain extent. The customer service is great! The waiters appear to be young and are friendly. We were given... More

We arrived without a booking and were put on one a big open table with stools for seats. It was perfectly fine, and kind of helped maintain a casual vibe while enjoying our meal. I had the octopus which was delicious, and then a crème catalan for dessert - yum! There was complimentary bread, and a good selection of Tassie... More

There are some fine dining experiences in hobart which are for those who like fine food and an uptight atmosphere. However this is not the case for Smolt. Relaxed and elegant atmosphere and very attentive staff. The food was amazing i was enjoying each and every mouth full. Wine was great also.
