My husband and I had a lovely lunch here after a day exploring Hobart. To start we had the leek and three cheese arancini, beautifully crisp on the outside and gooey on this inside and the proscuitto platter which came with salty crossini, pickled zuchinni and melt in your mouth soft proscuitto. For our mains we opted for the salad.... More

The food may be a little pricey, but it's well worth the price. Had the oyster plate, which had oysters prepared in three ways. The squid ink fettuccine with seafood was thoroughly delicious and enjoyable – the pasta, in particular, which is made in-house, is really good.

Multiple people recommended Smolt to us. Not sure why. The food and service were fine though portions were small. The small portions did not, however, reflect in the prices. Service was good. Decor was fine. All in all an average restaurant with a bit small portions.

The restaurant has a modern setting and situated right in the Salamanca Square. It is a popular restaurant as we couldn't get a spot for a Saturday night early dinner and settled for a Sunday dinner instead. Hence, reservation is recommended. We ordered the duck terrine and grilled octopus for entrees. They were nice but not standout dishes. For mains,... More

Smolt is a beautiful restaurant and has really friendly staff. I just wish the price wasn't so high, as the meals aren't all that big. Very tasty though, and great atmosphere!

I have eaten at Smolt maybe 20 times and had coffee there at least 100 times, so this is a place that I have known quite well and been to since it opened. I'm not quite sure why I haven't reviewed it before, but I haven't. Last night was the perfect opportunity to do so, after a late business dinner... More

As a frequent visitor to Hobart, I always have at least one dinner a trip at Smolt. The ambience, food and service are very good. However, the last few times I have been disappointed. The service was below par (forgot the order) and my friend could not eat the risotto as the consistency was poor.

Stopped in for an early dinner without a reservation and were seated immediately. Kids menu had salmon and potatoes which was great (instead of regular kids menu crap). Had the squid ink fettuccine and it was unique and delicious! Also had the asparagus risotto--also great! A bit pretentious-- glass of wine was the smallest we've ever received-- but overall a...
