Ferreira Cafe, located in the downtown section of Montreal, is a fantastic place. It has great atmosphere and the service was impeccable.Although the prices trend on the high side, the experience is well worth it. We both had the grilled calamari and believe it might just have been the best ever. My salmon was prepared to perfection and her Bouillabaise... More

Went to Ferreira after three separate recommendations - all from locals - two of whom we just asked in conversation. We were there on a very busy Saturday night but service was terrific and the food was fabulous. I have seen many reviews that state that this place is expensive - I think that depends on where thou have been... More

Started off with chilled gazpacho with melon, my partner had seared scallop with warm seafood salad - followed by Sole meuniere and he had lobster in tomato rice - delicious - with glass of rose, 2 bottles sparkling water, and a coke came to 175cad$ plus tip.

Great experience all round. Aperitif? Try the Moet Iced Mojito - delicious. The food was lovely - grilled calamari was fresh and had the edge on the fried calamari. 'Churrasco' chicken (Cornish hen) rates highly and the salted Cod was really tasty. The Seafood casserole was lovely though slight gripe is that the only seafood it seemed to contain was... More

I had the octopus, and the portuguese fish, pago. They were both excellent. Service was also very good. I will come back. Make sure you make reservations before. I tried to have dinner a second time, and I could not, reservation was required.

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.
