Solmar, Lisbon: 2 reviews and 6 photos
Solmar is located on the pedestrianised restaurant strip, Rua das Portas de Santo Antão. There are so many places to choose from along here that it is hard to know which one to opt for....are they all dodgy tourist focused places etc
Well, when we saw Solmar, we liked the look of it so much that we decided to take the risk - and were not disappointed!
The large shop front windows lure you in....the large airy restaurant is quite stunning. With its underwater scened tiled walls and its retro coloured furnishings it was a great space.
Solmar specialises in seafood, and the large shellfish platters on surrounding tables were enough to make anyone salivate!
It was comfortably busy on the Sunday night we visited The staff were very friendly and helpful, particularly in recommending a fabulous wine from the all Portuguese list.
Favorite Dish: We decided to sample some of their fish. I had the Sole and Alex had the house speciality of Rice & Seafood. Both meals were really tasty. With our meals we drank a (very cheap) bottle of white wine that had been recommended by our waiter. The brand was BSE, and the taste was excellent - kind of like a French Sancerre.
When they wheeled the dessert trolley over it seemed pointless to resist...so we didn't. Alex had a slice of a very evil looking chocolate cake and I had a serve of the almond cake.
A really enjoyable evening.
