This is a quite new and very ambitious restaurant which I wouldn't have known about except for earlier TripAdvisor reviews. Located in a new, apparently purpose-built and probably very expensive building, which makes me a little bit nervous about how well they will survive in the low season – fortunately it seemed to have become something of a favourite with the local worthies on the two nights we ate there. When we were there it was just out of season, and running on the minimum staffing needed to keep the place going, but the service was attentive and friendly (if occasionally a bit overwhelmed when there were a fair number of customers in) and the food truly excellent. We would particularly recommend the tasting plates, which vary from week to week – each of the three items on ours would have made an excellent basis for a main-sized meal. Serves are generously proportioned, at least where the mains are concerned. Wine list is well chosen, and it carries a good range of beers, including a number of the better local craft beers. One nice feature is a separate lounge with leather couches, a modest library, and an open fireplace which wasn't in operation when we were there, but would be a great attraction in the colder months. Prices seem to be generally about two-thirds of those at the only other quality option in town.

We had dinner and breakfast at Mohr & Smith. Staff were super friendly and the food great. Gluten free and kids no worries. Only (very picky) negative was the halogen downlights...not congruent with the decor or the menu, nor conducive to relaxed dining...some softer, more aesthetic lighting could improve the dining experience...but still, food and service were great!

Seating was prompt, very nice atmosphere. Food was magnificent, seafood fresh and everything well cooked. Kids loved the chips! Would definitely eat there again.

During our stay at St Helens we visited this cafe twice, had great meals on both occasions. Mohr & Smith is great new addition to the St Helens food scene! Nice atmosphere with good seating. Creative options on the menu for breakfast & lunch, all items were well priced. For lunch the seafood pie was delicious, beautiful pastry, the fish taco's are also highly recommended. Decent wine list. The service was friendly and welcoming. We'll be back!
