Description: Taverne F is Ferreira's new born from the Ferreria group. Located in the heart of the effervescent Quartier des Spectacles, in a luminous and relaxed atmosphere, Taverne F is a must for all foodies. Chef offers a savoring petiscos menu - word for portuguese version of tapas - in which he favors fresh market produce with a Portuguese touch! His inspiration? 'I hope to offer our clients perfumed, light and typical Mediterranean dishes, a region where I come from, along with Portuguese accents in which olive oil will be my sole instrument!' He explains with enthusiasm. The service is friendly and discreet which adds to the wonderful dining experience at Taverne F.

I remember really liking the ambiance here last year (2013) during the Jazz Festival. However, the place underwent an unneeded renovation. Difficult to see any improvement this year over last. Plus they changed the menu NOT for the better. It has an excellent location, being in the heart of the Quartier des Spectacles. They changed to a tapas style menu... More

Walked in without reservations, had to sit at the bar, but that turned out great. The bartender made us great martini', we liked the menu choices so we ordered a few tapas which we really enjoyed. Nice ambiance with friendly staff. Would definitely go back

Overall slightly above average and a bit slow service, the food is decent, but I'd say not on par with the price you pay. So what are the bright sides? I would call out two things: the concept of a bar standing "right on the trottoir" in a very central location makes up for an unusual and often entertaining experience.... More

However there might be a wait of 45 mins. Another couple came in behind us (also no reseveration) same answer we (both couples) even asked... More

Although we knew the restaurant to be a bistro, we were expecting a quality experience based on the owner's other restaurant, the Ferreira Cafe. We were a group of ten at the table. The service was long and it seemed that the restaurant was ill prepared to accomodate a group of 10 clients. We returned two steaks, which were overcooked.... More

Made a reservation a week ago. When we arrived they could not find my reservation. They gave us a table. My spouse had cod fritters which were excellent. For an entre, we both had shrimp risotto. It was delicious. In our 3 days in Montreal, F Bar served the most creative food. Presented well and tasted wonderful. Service was terrific.... More

We sat at the bar and enjoyed expertly prepared cocktails with good (not great) food. Raw oysters were not very fresh. Two of them had an off flavor. Always smell them before serving, and now before eating. The foie gras preparation was unusual, but didn't make a whole lot of sense to me, my gidille (sp.) was clean tasting and... More

This was my second time at F Bar and my wife's third. It is located right in Place de Arts where most of the festivals take place. On this occasion we were there for the Just for Laughs festival. The restaurant is located right across from the main stage. We got there a little early and had not problem getting... More

Lovely setting and a great patio for people watching. Service was excellent, great wine recommendation. Food was good not great though. Steak was very chewy but the prawns with humus were delicious.
