“Great pasta and seafood ok service”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

Went there with a large group and there was some mixup about the time however, they sat us quickly. Good wine selection and delicious seafood and pasta. The waitstaff was a little slow but overall was ok. I had the gnocchi w mushrooms. Really delicious.

“Tremendous food!!”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

We had no idea what we were in for when we got lucky enough to get a table here!

The food was awesome, the beer was cold and tasty, I had the Pappadalle with Lamb Ragout and the memory will live with me forever!

Do your tastebuds a favour and eat here when staying in Hobart! you may want to book though as it gets very busy!

“disappointing dinner but great breakfast”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

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.

“Exceptional restaurant”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

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!
