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.

Incredible fresh fish on the grill. Appetizers were fantastic. Desserts - excellent. The disappointment was with one dish - the rabbit fettucine. Not as tasty or special as I thought it would be. Everything else was excellent and I would go back.

Excellent fine dining with a Portuguese flair. The restaurant itself is elegant and somewhat quaint. The cost is in keeping with the elevated calibre of food and service.

Read great reviews on this place before going, so my expectations were high. We arrived at 4:50 for our 5 pm reservation (first seating) and had to wait outside until 5:02 due to staffing issues. Food was okay. Needs more flavour. I had the branzino. One person at our table had the cataplan and was impressed. Another had the rib eye and said it was just ok. The ambiance is nice. The food should be better at that price point.

have been wanting to try Flor de Sal for quite a while now and today me and my wife decided to give it a try during winterlicious and didn't leave disappointed! Great decor, great service and really tasty food. I work in the industry and always heard comments and critics about the quality of the food and I was very glad that I chose to not believe in what I was hearing and gave it a try. Well done Flor de Sal crew! Will be back for the regular menu for sure!

I am in the process of trying the top 100 restaurants and have done around 30 so far. This one is exceptional and should be higher up on this list. The food was outstanding as was everything else. The ambience was superb too and the service impeccable. I recommend this so highly! Thanks for a wonderful evening. I am definitely coming back.

Wonderful food and elegant service.
We had a table in a small dining room with only 2 tables
No one else was dining in the room so we had a really lovely, quiet dining experience
It’s pricey, but every detail is looked after, so it’s a special experience.

Our third visit, all for special occasions. From the friendly welcome to the 'thank you for visiting' goodbye, the evening was excellent. Friendly but not obtrusive service, excellent food, great wine recommendations when we asked, and a nice ambience were highlights. Each time that we have visited has been similar.

Great ambiance in this place, and the food was really delicious. We had scallops and lamb and two salads to start. All were exquisite. The bar options were a bit limited, but perfectly good given that the place isn't known for its cocktails.

I would return for the food. At the same time, I felt the service was less than stellar, especially at the price point. When I'm spending a ton of money on a meal, I expect enthusiastic, friendly and attentive staff that help make the experience memorable (in a good way). This wasn't our experience, and I had to stay really positive in order to not let it affect our mood and enjoyment of the meal.

Did some research online, near Casaloma, as we were going to the haunted house after a dinner. Came across Flor de Sal and the reviews were great.
Incredible ambiance, amazing service and delicious food!
After dinner while leaving, the owner Christina, asked what our plans were. I had let her know we were going to Casaloma and I had forgot my jacket, as the weather was cold that evening. Without hesitation she offered me a blanket from the restaurant. I took her up on the offer and used the blanket all evening. What an incredible gesture! Hours later I returned it to her and was very thankful. You will not be disappointed in choosing this restaurant! We felt like family there.

Flor de Sal is one of our favourite spots to go out for a nice dinner and we refer to it as 'paradise'.
I requested a birthday dessert for Jeff when I made the reservation. I know that the request was received because the hostess made mention of the occasion to Jeff but we were served a regular dessert and I had to excuse myself from the table and request a do over. The error by no means ruined the evening, but it would have been nice to count on such a fundamental part of the celebration going flawlessly.

Ordered cataplana that had 12 baby clams and 1 shrimp, I didn’t think that was a good deal for 44$

Other than that, I love the restaurant.

Hi ZubyS, Thank you for taking the time in giving your valuable feedback!First off we are glad to hear that you enjoyed the ambiance, and your friend the branzino. I would like to note the the sardines were as fresh as the branzino, since the have the same origin, and arrived at the same time. We are also sorry to hear the croutons served were not suitable for your palate. Wish you all the best! Managment.

Beautiful decor, excellent service, intimate, and overall feels look like eating in a beautiful and upscale home. Staff are friendly and very knowledgeable of the Portuguese food, ingredients, and wine. The staff that were serving us were originally from Portugal and speaking to them about geography, festivals, and traveling added to our dining experience. Food was also excellent but I would have liked to see a few more Portuguese dishes.

The “best kept little secret” in the city (selfishly reluctantly recommending).
Absolutely beautiful decor, delicious cuisine perfectly prepared and presented, excellent staff and service with Christina (the owner) usually personally dropping by to add a personal touch!
My new favourite and now a “regular”!
Enjoy!
