We went to Smolt twice while in Hobart. Once for morning coffees - nice enough but nothing special. Dinner however, was fantastic. Generous portions, free bread & oil / vinegar. The evening service was excellent, very friendly, quick and helpful. Would definitely return. The slow cooked beef was amazing, the angel hair squid ink pasta a winner too!

Have walked past this place a few times but never had the inclination to try. Was recommended by a friend who visited a few weeks ago so as we were in Hobart over the weekend decided to finally give it a go. Obviously popular with locals as a couple of groups were in for celebrations of some sort. Service was... More

Walking up to the entrance is a treat, the unassuming front is not pretentious at all. The host was genuinely warm and welcoming. Service was spot on and the local wine selection was fantastic. Food was lights out, everyone at our table agreed it was the best dinner we had during our trip to Hobart. Also, I am vegetarian and... More

Came for dinner alone on a monday night. The place was not too busy but felt lively. I sat in the window looking over the sqaure and was served by Nina. I had the oyster taste plate, some pasta and the fondant and double local whiskey which was recommended by the waitress. I am just visiting the country and wished... More

Nah. Too much vibe for discrete and quiet dinner. This is a foodies paradise. Gr8888t food. Not cheap but affordable. Range of tastes will tantalise most palates. Have you picture taken with Marilyn Rabbit. Enjoy

When you hit the trail, you want to ensure that you get the full local experience. Smolt provides that in spades. From the olives in the Smolt secret brew through to the salmon and melt-in-your-mouth lamb, the menu screamed "We're local!!". I enjoyed the focus on the Bruny Island products (cheese and beer) whilst the child bride never says no... More

Smolt has a goodlooking interior that is designed with a nod to the more stylish elements of 1970s design, without overstating the fact. I liked the look of it immediately, and that, although it's a large open space, stylish timber partitions divide it halfway, so that it doesn't feel cavernous. We went there on a Wednesday evening for dinner and... More
