What a great meal! Served flawlessly in an elegant-but-cozy old world atmosphere. Don't know why this place isn't packed. But it isn't which makes it even more pleasant--you can hear conversation! You are not cramped. Solmar's Portuguese cuisine is flavorful and fresh. The caldo verde...More

One of my favourite restaurants in Old Montreal, you can get wild boar, elk, caribou adn more. In the summer, the outdoor seating is splendid and not beside traffic. Look for the Red Awnings that still say "La Sauvinage".
