convenient for small gatherings

Went there several times for small gatherings / office meetings / presentations. Nice and clean, medium size room with good acoustics. The food was good. Last time I went there they had an amazing sea-food starter. My advice is to take the fish (they have cod fish cooked at perfection) not the... read more

We were a party of six. We were seated at a round table in the back which made for a good conversation place--quiet. We were well served by a friendly waiter who helped with our selection of Portuguese wines. I had an incredible stuffed zucchini flower for a starter. Then a brace of roasted lamb chops, done perfectly. Our table... More

We were here a couple of years ago and had a fantastic meal. We returned on our most recent trip to Montreal and it was just as good. Delicious and perfectly prepared fish served by personable and knowledgeable staff. It is pricey and a bit loud but it's a lovely place -- and the food is just so good. Highly... More

It's ok - expensive but well located. I guess my biggest issue - it can be very noisy, and I'm just too old to love noisy restaurants.

After reading the reviews on TA we decided to try this restaurant on the Sunday night of Grand Prix weekend with some friends. Particularly as we have spent a lot of time in Portugal and love its authentic cuisine. Sadly we were a bit disappointed. The wine was very over-priced and the service was very average. Maybe we were unfortunate... More

Service was fine, and food was good, nothing extraordinary. Tried the house wine, which was not good. A little bit pretensious, but overall an average experience. Some portuguese input on the cousine, but contemporary dishes are available.

The Bouillabaisse was amazing! Great service. It was a wonderful location for a special birthday dinner when we were visiting Montreal.

2015 Grandprix weekend Ferreira did and extraordinary job serving double the usual capacity with the finest food. Owner Carlos and his wonderful daughter Sandra even invited myself and my Portuguese friend Diego to join their table on the final night,as they hosted Russian driver Daniil Kvyat. They are truly hosts extraordinaire and amazing restaurateurs!

I have been countless times to this resturant. First time i review it!! Very popular Montreal restaurant but you always need to call ahead to have a table. Fine dining, urban chic restaraurant.

Staying in Centre-Ville (Downtown)

Neighborhood Profile
Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by nightfall transforms from a business district into a youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and restaurants heavily peopled by students and young professionals. The once-seat of millionaire's 'Golden Square Mile', an incongruity of stately mansions and dapper brownstones sit between glass skyscrapers, creating a visually lush urban landscape. Beneath the sidewalks lay the Underground City, the world's largest below-ground mall, a labyrinth of over 1,500 shops and eateries that echo the profusion of cafes, gallerias, cinemas, and fashion outlets above. From the scholarly array at McGill University to the carousing crowds of Rue Crescent, visit Downtown to shop by day for what you'll wear there by night.
