... DO NOT MISS this eatery! We happened in there out of a heavy rainstorm, & what a fabulous 'shelter' it was. The ambience & decor were very inviting, & we were seated immediately by a pleasant, efficient hostess. An appealing & extensive menu of Portuguese seafood & some 'surf & turf' options was presented & an evening of gastronomic... More

We went here on a Saturday night during an annual Montreal conference. The food was delicious and the service and presentation were terrific. We shared the sardines for an appetizer, one of us had the lamb and the other had the black cod, and we shared the fig cake for dessert. The food was piping hot and beautiful to look... More

It was my first time at Café Ferreria but not my last! This by far some of the best Portuguese food I've ever tasted and if price is not an issue for you then you should try this restaurant for an upscale dining experience. Suggestions of entrees to try are: grilled octopus, calamari, chorizo and sardines and for the main... More

This was our fourth visit to Ferreira on Peel, it was, by choice, once again at lunch. For all diners who have complained of a cavernously empty dining room when having their meal, this is not the case at Ferreira during lunch. A great and vibrant bustle envelopes this restaurant and it is a sheer pleasure to be part of... More

Night two in Montreal and our host Albert at Le Relais Lyonnais recommended yet another winner. He said the food was great and people watching even better. We walked into the restaurant at 8:00 pm (with reservations) and were immediately seated. The place is trendy, impeccably decorated, with a long bar in the main restaurant area and a smaller dining... More

I returned to this restaurant on a recent business trip to Montreal. I was able to get a reservation on short notice and received attentive and caring service, even though I was dining solo. The tuna tartare was mouth watering. I was served a wonderful glass of red wine. And the home made ice creams in unique flavours (goat cheese,... More

We scoured Trip Adivsor looking for a great place to have dinner during our short 2-day stay. From the moment we arrived, and were warmly greeted by Anibal and his staff, we knew we had made a great choice. As the meal progressed things only got better! The restaurant is categorized as Portuguese (since most of the seafood served is... More
