Our last night in Old Montreal and wanted seafood. I had never experienced Portuguese cuisine prior so was unsure what to expect. The traditional Portuguese soup was a nice starter, and the baked fish of the day was exactly what I was hoping for. Served...More

We happened upon Porto Mar at the end of a long day of walking around Montréal. Fresh ingredients elegantly prepared made for a delicious meal. The staff was attentive, helpful, and friendly. The desserts were the perfect ending.

The fayre was authentic and the Pasteis de Nata were sublime. The surroundings were very nice indeed but as we were one of only two parties in the restaurant on a Friday evening, the atmosphere was a little lacking.
