Contemporary European

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.

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.

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!

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!

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

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.

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.

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.
