Very very good

One of the best places to "real" eat good and quality food. Mainly Portuguese but other options also. Service and food are very good. I recommend the place.

Went for a business lunch, and the food was great. Service was prompt and the menu is interesting, but a little unusual. It offers dishes you will not see anywhere else, always well prepared.

... DO NOT MISS this eatery! We happened in there out of a heavy rainstorm, & what a fabulous 'shelter' it was. The ambience & decor were very inviting, & we were seated immediately by a pleasant, efficient hostess. An appealing & extensive menu of Portuguese seafood & some 'surf & turf' options was presented & an evening of gastronomic... More

We went here on a Saturday night during an annual Montreal conference. The food was delicious and the service and presentation were terrific. We shared the sardines for an appetizer, one of us had the lamb and the other had the black cod, and we shared the fig cake for dessert. The food was piping hot and beautiful to look... More

It was my first time at Café Ferreria but not my last! This by far some of the best Portuguese food I've ever tasted and if price is not an issue for you then you should try this restaurant for an upscale dining experience. Suggestions of entrees to try are: grilled octopus, calamari, chorizo and sardines and for the main... More

This was our fourth visit to Ferreira on Peel, it was, by choice, once again at lunch. For all diners who have complained of a cavernously empty dining room when having their meal, this is not the case at Ferreira during lunch. A great and vibrant bustle envelopes this restaurant and it is a sheer pleasure to be part of... More

Night two in Montreal and our host Albert at Le Relais Lyonnais recommended yet another winner. He said the food was great and people watching even better. We walked into the restaurant at 8:00 pm (with reservations) and were immediately seated. The place is trendy, impeccably decorated, with a long bar in the main restaurant area and a smaller dining... More
