Good, but not great

Busy restaurant, some interesting but over-priced wines, good but not great food. Good location for tourists and shoppers.

Went here with a recommendation from a relative. They raved and this lived up to and exceeded expectations!! Starting from the moment we walked in, the waiter and wait staff were efficient and friendly. Our waiter was informative and his choices were spot on. We started sharing the grilled octopus. But the stars were our main courses - extra large... More

We just came back from a fantastic meal at Ferreira. The restaurant is primarily Portugese, very stylish yet not formal, and has tables and a long food bar. As I am unfamiliar with Portuguese wine I asked our waiter -- who was terrific -- to make wine by the glass suggestions. He asked the styles we prefer (I'm a red... More

Had dinner there tonight. Food and service were great. However, it wasn't a good experience. While I was eating, the staff was preparing for a large party. They spent 30 minutes moving tables in and out around me and rearranging chairs. Literally, they attempted at least 5 different table arrangements and then engaged in discussions on the merits of each.... More

I went yesterday to try this restaurant as I've heard so many great things about it. We went for a couple of appetizers drinks and desert. Octopus - tender, well cooked and seasoned on a bed of white beans - Salad - simple, savoury, with lightly fried onions - Calamaris - excellent Sardines - nice, fresh, on a bed of... More

We have been coming here since 1997 when my hubby ( boyfriend at that time) brought me to Montreal for the 1st time. It's one of our favourite restaurants in Montreal. The food is always fresh and delicious and the service is impeccable! The only drawback is that it's really noisy. It's expensive to but you pay for what you... 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.

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 fillet mignon.

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.
