Recommended by a friend and well rated restaurant, just off Salamanca Place. We arrived a little early and staff were attentive while we waited for our table. Atmosphere is buzzy, hard surfaces meant noise levels were borderline excessive, good lighting and decor. Wrong oyster dish was delivered and as they were still attached to shells, they were messy to separate... More

Really enjoyed out dinner at Smolt. The arancini was probably the best I've ever eaten! The wife loved the calamari and the jamon was mouth watering. Loved sitting by the window looking out on Salamanca square. Great food and great service.

We could not carry on a normal voiced conversation. Very disappointing. The food was good, but not worth the price and ambience. It was actually a painful dining experience. I would never go there again. There are many other good options in the Salamanca area in Hobart.

Lovely food and a good selection of wines. I couldn't decide which wine I wanted so the nice waitress let me try before I decided which one to go with. Although we arrived very late in the afternoon and staff were warm, welcoming and helpful.

We recently visited Smolt for lunch on a Saturday and the restaurant was very busy which is usually a good sign. Smolt has a different take on the menu in that its now a brunch menu. There are still plenty of options ranging from staple breakfast fare of Avocado on toast, eggs with bacon and sausage etc. There are pizzas... More

Great food, good portion size and great attentive service. Loved the location close to city centre. Staff were very welcoming and not pretentious at all as is the case sometimes with good quality restaurants. Music could have been turned down a bit but that's just trivial.

We all enjoyed our dinner at Smolt despite very dim lighting, most of our party over 70. House wine (white) not recommended. Service impeccable. Restaurant in Salamanca square which was an easy walk from our accomodation. House made ice creams and sorbet pleasant but did not live up to expectation. Main courses fabulous 2 of our party had pork chop... More

All the tables around us arrived after us, and ate before us. No almond milk. Although the menu said dairy free option for the porridge, when ordering they said it was already made up with cows milk so couldn't be done on soy. Flat white and piccolos were nice, long black was awful. Smashed avocado ($17.50) came with packet avocado... More

This is a hard one to rate -the food was very good, the service was fine but the noise and music [loud, harsh and metallic sounding] meant that eating dinner here was not an enjoyable experience and we left without ordering dessert or another drink. We were seated in the middle section of what is a large restaurant space with... More
