Good Food - Stingy with the Wine

Food was very good - well presented and executed with finesse. On a Tuesday night it was reasonably crowded and the service was friendly but a bit haphazard. We ordered wine by the glass (white for my wife, red for me) and it was poured out as if every drop was precious. Nor was it particularly... read more

Best arancini I have ever eaten. Pretty disappointed with the service though - the place was rather empty, but it took the staff a while to show us to the table and later to come with a card terminal when we wanted to pay.

Great energy, talented staff, fantastic food. Had the scrambled eggs with hot smoked salmon and thick sliced sourdough and couldn't have been happier. Coffee was excellent. I highly recommend brunch here.

Agree with other reviews it is a bit noisy but found that it adds a comfy feel when dining and the seperate areas help create an intimate feel ..the open kitchen also adds to the vibrant feel while..watching the girls and guys madly prepare everyone's meals... great flavour with our dishes the salmon was a hit and the entrees so...

I took my partner to this restaurant, because I know he likes good food and wine... And wow, Smolt did NOT disappoint! The seafood was to die for! I highly recommend the Potted Fish (it was a Tapas plate), omg it was so beautiful! We also had lovely mussels and some pizza! All this was paired with a beautiful Tasmania... More

With such a ambiance as befits this best kept Hobart secret, Smolt is intimate and luxurious and a true local treasure. The food, which features delicious local produce encourages experimentation with intriguing variations on traditional ideas. The service from the staff welcomes the diner with open arms and is exceptional. Smolt is a very interesting and different dining experience and... More

Great food - had venison served with amazing veg. Good wine selection and thoughtful service. Had to leave after mains. Just got too noisy. Hard floors and ceilings means lots of echo and they turn up the music - couldn't hear my wife.

Although the restaurant is very dark, the food is light and delectable. We had a range of dishes from lamb pizza to the hare gnocchi. All had beautiful flavors. It has been one of our best meals in Tasmania.
