We were recommended to this restaurant by out tour guide and told we didn't need reservations if we went early. So in we went at about 6:00 on a weeknight,,where the stoic hostess asked if we had reservations,we said no and she told us their was one table available if we could eat fast. I know this is where we... More

This was my first time to Ferreira Cafe. All of the appetizers were amazing. The Octopus was fresh and probably the best I have ever had. They are known for their Bouillabaisse and it was exceptional. Getting in can be a challenge but well worth it.

This restaurant is for people on expense accounts who don't give a crap about the companies they work for. The food is good but FAR from the best in Montreal and certainly not worth the Michelin star prices they charge. A veal chop will run you CAD$47 and if you want a side with that, another CAD$6-10....not including tax (15%)... More

I have been going to Montreal for many years, and fortunately, found Cafe Ferreira recently. I stopped in for lunch and sat at the bar by myself. The service by both the bartendress and waiter was attentive and very professional. I ordered the seafood casserole which was amazing. A mixture of very fresh shrimp, scallops, clams, calamari and deliciously seasoned... More

With friends for lunch and it still has it. Great appetizers. The sardines are great, salads generous, the chorizo is exactly like chorizo should be. I am still in awe of that wine list. About 50 Portuguese labels I have never heard off, but so good. Service is smooth and slick. This is a cut above and my second visit... More

The food was beautifully described, even better prepared and they were very accommodating to the kids, even though there was no kids menu. Dessert was just as good and, since the owner also owns Cafe Vasco da Gama up the road, you can find some of the same desserts in both place. We could see the open kitchen and were... More

When I came to the restaurant, I was hoping to get some Portuguese food with a twist but what I ended up with was a huge bill and a bad taste in my mouth. The ambiance is sorely lacking. It's nicely decorated but the choice of music is horrendous. It is so loud, you can't speak to other diners over... More

We dine here once a year. I go out for work in Montreal when visiting the city often and get to try many fine restaurants. year after year I can say that the meals here are consistently the best. The blackened cod special is one of their special meals. The tastes of everything is superb. There is top notch service... More

The concierge at out hotel suggested this restaurant to us for our first evening in Montreal. Being from Philadelphia, we were open to trying Portuguese for our arrival dinner. Simply said, the food was "good", the service "average", and upon my request for a good "dry" white, I was served a rather sweet though tolerable white wine. What made us... More

1. Do not look at the pictures people have put for this restaurant. These pics do not do justice to the food. 2. The food is amazing. Go wild! Try something new. You will not go wrong. 3. Expensive restaurant... 200$ for two with wine.
