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

Great decor Cozy atmosphere Lovely service Amazing wine list Delicious food It is elevated Portuguese cuisine, which comes at a price ($$$$). You can find delicious rotisserie Portuguese all over town for a fraction of the price, but it will be comfort food. Yes, Ferreira is pricey, but the experience is worth it. It was a real treat!

Ferreira is one of Montreal's best food destination. And it has been for quite a while. I hadn't been to Ferreira Cafe for a few years but have renewed recently twice for lunch with my top client to discover that not only it had not lost anything, but if possible, the restaurant has matured even better. The choice of fresh... More

Having been here twice a couple of years ago and been wowed by the food, I was expecting more from this well known Montreal restaurant. Unfortunately this time the food was just very average though the prices were over the top. The seafood was overly salted and the octopus was uneatable being extremely chewy and not at all tasty. The... More

This is not a "Portuguese" restaurant with only traditional dishes. The fish was fresh and cooked in a straight forward but well-flavored way. Don't get the champagne, it seems a bit steep. Crowded and lively with busy attentive service. A winner.

Ferreira's on Peel St. is one of those great finds. The food is excellent, particularly the seafood. The wine list is great and the servers very professional and attractive.

We visited on a Tuesday evening and it was packed! Luckily, we had reserved ahead. Everything we tried was very good: lamb, grilled calamari, octopus, shrimp, cod. It is definitely a good place to have fresh seafood. The deserts also looked great! The wine was also very good. The service team was very courteous and attentive, the music and atmosphere... More
