went here for a business dinner. Had octopus for appetizer, cod as a main dish and apple tart for dessert. The portions are generous and the freshness/flavor of everything will not dissapoint!

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

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

4 of us walked in without a reservation on a Saturday night and of course the place was full. We left and the maitre d walked outside and offered us a table telling us we had an hour to eat before the reserved table was to arrive. We took it and the service And food were outstanding. Very much appreciated... More
