Wonderful seafood, prepared skillfully yet simply. Grill Calamari, lobster with fresh tomato and rice casserole, and a dessert of stewed figs and fig cake was all that we needed. Their wine recommendation was right on the money.

I love Portuguese food, and Ferreira has one of the best Portuguese cuisines I ever met -- Lisbon restaurants included. The cod was was simply perfect, a real poem. Great dessert and marvelous service made for a memorable evening. Strongly recommended!

Very good restaurant. Food expertly prepared and the wine list is very good. You are prompted by trip advisor to answer the question whether the meal was one of the best you have ever had in a restaurant. I said no, but more because I find the question too subjective. I have been to many good restaurants all over the... More

We visited in December and again this month. Both times the restaurant was excellent, good wines from Portugal, and a mix of seafood dishes that vary seasonally, along with excellent side dishes. I would eat there every week if I could.

People can nag and complain about the prices. My recommendation is : check the price menus online before going and if it's too expensive don't go.... As simple as that. The prices are a bit high because the QUALITY of the ingredients is there, the PORTIONS of the meals are good, and the taste is impeccable!!!! Now service can be... More

A server at another restaurant recommended Ferreira's to us and we were very happy he did. Reading the other reviews make's me scratch my head a bit, but I can follow some of the negative comments... this is not traditional Portuguese food. The chef stared there and then moved on to blend in more modern elements and cooking styles (which... More

The food is fine, fresh, mostly grilled fish, but the prices are way too much both for how simply prepared the food is and the fact that everything other than the fish came out cold. If you order the scallop appetizer, you get one scallop for $18, the fish dishes are 45 and up. This is despite the fact that... More

This is a well-situated resto in downtown Montreal that serves Portuguese cuisine. We came for lunch, a more reasonably-priced meal. The service was good, but the receptionist was not very friendly. It poured rain and they moved the patrons from the terrasse indoors so all the tables were scrunched together. That wasn't a serious problem, though, just a tad uncomfortable... More

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.
