Decided to go to smolt on recommendations from others. Had an enjoyable dinner. Started with oysters 3 ways. Shared entree. Tasty. Main courses included squid fettuccine beautiful. My husband had pork belly. Both very nice. Expensive but worth it. Service was good. Wouldn't classify as fine dining though.

High quality food, but we had a small child, no highchair offered and we were put right at back of restaurant so no view from our table and very dark lighting, but service was good and food also, pricing high so expect to pay top dollar. I would suggest great for couples or meeting venue.

On the plus side we didn’t have a reservation but they managed to fit us in anyway (for dinner). The restaurant has a good vibe, the service was attentive and we had a good table. However, the food was a bit underwhelming. I had a "steak with romesco sauce, charred onions, smoked tomato” - the dish looked good but under-seasoned... More

Smolt is a classy restaurant that serves mostly local products. It is of a very good quality and service was prompt. Staff was friendly and helpful. Not a lot of range for kids though but adults who like fine food will not be disappointed.

Very high end food but the place is extremely noisy. And that's with no one sitting near us - just from the ambient music and tables around the restaurant. It's also pretty pricey but the food is good and nice portions.

My husband and I had been recommended to go to SMOLT and we are so glad we did. From the moment we walked in we were totally looked after like royalty. The food and wine and whisky were fabulous. Try the stuffed and crumbed olives as a starter!

If you are a visitor to Hobart, then make a booking as this experience is not to be missed. The chefs can be seen calmly preparing the most delicious and artistically presented dishes. Perhaps we could blame the clientele for all the background noise as excitement was in the air on account of the Sydney to Hobart yacht race. Do... More

Sat at bar alone and each and every staff member went out of their way to talk to me and make local suggestions. They were crazy busy, but you could tell they were having a blast. I even got talked into a dessert wine which I never do and thoroughly enjoyed. Try the oysters natural for a flavorful experience. Sauvignon... More
