The recipes are not bad, and I would recommend their green soup in particular. The grilled cod, a typical Portuguese course, is a bit dry, but the fish seemed fresh and the sides were ok. The choice of wines is fine, and so is the service, but it is a bit too pricey, for the average quality of food which... More

We had our office Christmas party at Solmar on December 22, 2016. We all had a fabulous dinner. We had lots of tapas And then we each ordered our individual meals. We had the seafood rice, lobster, filet mignon dishes. The food was delicious and the service was fantastic. Thank you David Jr. for making our dinner a memorable one.

The restaurant was quite crowded when we were there for lunch, but managed to get an outside table which was quite nice in the Summer. Lots of daily specials to choose from. We had the mussels with frites and the duck confit. Both were delicious. Would definitely go here again.

I have been here a number of times over the years when we travel to this area - outside needs restoration, but the inside (now new owners) is just as it always is, nice, clean, waiters are on you as soon as you walk in, tend to your every need - chat when they need to with pleasure - I... More

Ordered degustation menu. Shrimp soup was too salty and Luke warm. The rest of the dishes were dull. Fortunately the house wine was fine. the waiter is fine too. 难吃的葡萄牙餐。别浪费你的时间和金钱来这儿吃饭。

If you visit foreign destinations and want to sample different cuisines you don't find at home try this. Portuguese cuisine featuring a tapas menu with shrimp in garlic, grilled octopus and a trio of smoked salmon, canard breast and prosciutto. Along with these tapas they have a full entree menu. Try the house wines, they are great.

I'm surprised this beautiful restaurant isn't in the top 100 of Montreal. The dining room is beautifully appointed. We were greeted immediately and sat at a perfectly laid out table. My wife's chair was pulled out for her. A dying art of manners. Our waiter, Anthony, was a professional, a true artist at his craft. We've eaten in hundreds of... More

Sadly the place was mostly empty but the service was wonderful. Manuel was a wonderful host and the fado music was played throughout the night. Food was tasty but not the best portuguese food i've ever had. Very good overall

Excellent food prepared in a french style at this restaurant, part of the SOLMAR facility on St. Paul. The restaurant specializes in game, but we found excellent maple pork tenderloin to be just perfect.

Staying in Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)

Neighbourhood Profile
Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)
The historic centre of Montreal, Vieux-Port is home to some of the city's most antiquated buildings and picturesque streets. Along the waters of the St. Lawrence River, the bank of Old Port features museums, festivals, food stalls, and outdoor athletics, a celebrated part of the city that explodes into fireworks displays on warm summer nights. At its centre, street performers and artists compete with sprawling restaurant terraces for space along Jacques-Cartier Square, while the cobbled streets of Rue St. Paul and Rue Notre-Dame offer a reprieve of quiet galleries and atmospheric wine bars. Horse-drawn carriages are not an uncommon part of traffic, and the narrows they traverse are lined with boutiques, crêperies, and poutine shops enshrined in buildings of stone and wooden lattices. Here you can evoke Montreal's past with a traditional cooking lesson or historical tour, then enjoy its artistic present with live music and theatre.
