We were recommended and thankfully booked before flying into Hobart for a long weekend. Yes Smolt is very busy.

Service was very good, thank you.

At dinner the lighting was poor and detracted from what could have been a pleasant environment. Lucky we were near the kitchen and could use the light overspill. Wine menu was on the expensive side (we noted this of most restaurants in Hobart)

The food menu had good choices and there were many items that tempted - unfortunately a number of the dishes we ordered were very disappointing. The crumbed pork cheek entree special was overcooked and bland. The beetroot and goats cheese salad was fine. I eat duck whenever I can so naturally I went for the duck confit - poor choice - overcooked and stringy. My partners fish special of trevalla with prawn bisque was fine. Our dessert ice cream choice was rather ordinary & the cheese ok.

Yes we went back for breakfast - a second chance - and service had been good. Sat down the back - not good on a pleasant morning - bit dull. Breakfast menu was good and our choice of scrambled eggs with local salmon and muesli with fruit and yoghurt were very enjoyable.

We had the most amazing meal at Smolt - the seafood was perfect (oysters, salmon, seafood linguine) and we thoroughly enjoyed it. A really nice atmosphere for somewhere a bit special as some of the other nearby restaurants tended to get a bit rowdy. Highly recommend going here, and we will be going back!

We arrived late afternoon and it was quiet. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. We ordered the sausage pizza and the Special Seafood board. The flavours in the pizza were sensational and the freshness of the fish outstanding. Beautifully cooked. Well priced sensational food and service. Highly recommend.

You have to try the baked eggs. Yum.......
I went there on Easter Saturday and the staff were friendly but the place was really busy therefore it took awhile for our food.

Probably my best meal in hobart

Heard really good things.
Sat in window seat both facing window (like bar at maccas).
Couldn't find anything on menu
Wine list was overpriced and crap
Left having a mouthful of sparkling water and got charged $9.90 for the privilege.
