Flor de Sal
The romance of fine dining returns to Toronto at Flor De Sal. Crisp white linens and flickering candlelight create an elegant mise en scène. In the kitchen, old-world, soul-stirring recipes get a contemporary spin. Guests of Flor De Sal will be treated to modern continental cuisine inspired by the flavours of Portugal and Mediterranean.
Great for all occasions.
Dress code in effect.
A wonderful destination for a special dinner. Try sharing the charcuterie and the house marinated olives between 4. Everyone gets a taste and conversation gets off to a good start.
If you are not familiar with Portuguese cuisine do not be shy about asking the staff. They are delighted to help you navigate the menu and are proud of their heritage.
Oh, and do try the Portuguese wines. As with most wines you get what you pay for. A good tip is to tell the sommelier what kind of French or Italian wine you like and they can steer you to something you will definitely enjoy.
Reservations are a must but this place should go on your list of high end restaurants to experience.
My absolute favourite newly discovered restaurant in the city!
Excellent and thoughtful service. When they found out it was our anniversary they even made a special, decorated dessert plate for us. The food was delicious, as well.
We had a wonderful evening. Thank you for making our sons birthday so special.
We spent our 50th wedding anniversary dinner at Flor de Sal...what a fabulous choice! Ricardo, our server, was professional and knowledgeable. We were seated in a small room, able to accommodate three tables. The room was beautifully appointed with fine furniture, draperies and art.
Every course was served in a timely fashion, and exquisitely plated. Our first course included a burrata salad and Piri Piri shrimp. Both were complemented by the in house made Portuguese sweet bread... delicious! Our entrees were pistachio encrusted sea scallops and rack of lamb in a black currant sauce. Each dish was enhanced by well crafted sauces and artfully plated vegetables. And finally...dessert: the house sampler, which tintillated our taste buds with a luscious custard tart and a chocolate mousse tart elegantly garnished with pear gel, edible gold and persimmon. From beginning to end a spectacular restaurant experience! Brava!
Exceptional experience from service to food. You know you are in a special place when the owner takes an active interest in the details.
Very nice diner with great service and great food
This is a total hidden gem that needs some serious recognition. Every little detail was accounted for and the food was absolutely outstandingly delicious. They were even to make some substitutions for a slightly more restrictive diet which was very kind of them. The owner came to speak with us and she was absolutely lovely Christina was so kind and no wonder the place is so amazing. The chef also came over to speak to us which is a pleasant surprise and I would definitely return! PS the cassava fries were to die for I would go back just for those fries!
We enjoyed our dining experience at Flor de Sal very much. Food quality and presentation were very good. Service was excellent, attentive but not overwhelming. Very nice ambience with soft background music that allows a normal conversation. Overall a great experience.
My husband and I have dined all over Toronto and in different parts of the world. A friend recommended Asked to visit this restaurant as our 10th wedding anniversary celebration. It could not have been a better experience! Everything was sheer perfection! I highly recommend it for a romantic, beautiful, and delicious evening.
Lovely spot - ambience, service and quality and creativity of the food was fabulous. Highly recommend it!
Excellent service and attention to detail by the staff. Food was flavorful and we appreciated the complimentary palate cleanser between courses.
High quality food and an exceptional customer service experience.
Wonderful food - great flavours. Romantic setting. Good value

I would recommend this to Restaurant to all
Hi Paul, Receiving great reviews from our guests always makes our day. We're thrilled to know that you had a great time during your visit. In regards to the parking, we understand your frustration. Our recommendation for the future is to look for a spot along the residential streets. It may be tricky at times (especially on the weekend), but you'll almost always get lucky! Looking forward to hosting you again soon. Kind Regards, Management
Took my boyfriend here for his birthday, it was so romantic and cozy, a great spot for a nice date night :)
Outrageously expensive for very average food and service. Unlikely to return

Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org at your earliest convenience. Once again sending our sincerest apologies. We look forward to speaking with you soon. Kind Regards, Management
In the years of Winterlicious, Flor de Sal is the gold-medal winner.
We decided to try Flor de Sal for the first time, during the Toronto Winterlicious event. It exceeded all expectations: The food was exceptional, the service was fantastic and the ambiance was wonderful. We've been raving to all our friends and will definitely be back. Thank you to the staff for making such a memorable evening.
Always great. One of our favourite spots in the city.
Great food, drinks and service, and depending where you are seat, can be very private. Very nicely decorated.
attention to details was perfect to none. very classy and romantic in the evening. food was portugese perfect. sebastian our server gave superb service. a little bit pricy, but you pay for the ambiance, top notch servuce and qualuty of food.
my wife and i enjoyed the quiet dinner date ... we felt lovers again! you should experience flor de sal if you can ... luv it!
A hidden in gem in Toronto. The was my first time and I can’t wait to go back. Perfect for a romantic dinner.
We had an amazing culinary experience. Highly recommended and we will be back. The ambiance is incredible and the service was top notch. Christina, an owner, introduced herself and checked on how our evening was going a few times. She asked our names and if we were there for an occasion and when we mentioned it was a birthday, she brought a personalized dessert plate to us.
Amazing and so unique.
Keep on going back
Had an amazing time!
Restaurant was quiet and intimate until a large party showed up and proceeded to talk very loudly (almost yelling). As a result, although we were two tables away and there was a partition between our area and the group, it became impossible to carry on a normal conversation. This greatly detracted from an otherwise wonderful evening.
Absolutely exceptional. Presentation was simply elegant and food was outstanding. By far most romantic and quiet atmosphere in the GTA. Marvellous
Mr.Diddy, we are very happy your experience was fantastic. We wish you the best for the holidays Take care Cristina Owner
Excellent meal and superb service. Would highly recommend this restaurant ...an overall fabulous dining experience.
Ms.Elizabeth, Thank you Happy holidays to you and yours Take care Cristina Owner
Perfect as always! This place a must-go in Toronto.
Love these people :)
Amazing the best restaurant in Toronto
We went for a family celebration. The food was excellent -- scallops seared just right, steak exactly to order, risotto not overdone. It was one of our best meals this year. Service was polite and attentive, but not irritating.
The wine list has a range of popular wines (e.g. Kendall-Jackson Chardonnay) but I would recommend the more interesting, lesser known, Portuguese choices. These include very good values, especially among the reds.
Two of our party have celiac disease and so cannot eat gluten. This was not an issue.
The price was reasonable especially in view of the quality of the food and the service.
