Having been here twice a couple of years ago and been wowed by the food, I was expecting more from this well known Montreal restaurant. Unfortunately this time the food was just very average though the prices were over the top. The seafood was overly salted and the octopus was uneatable being extremely chewy and not at all tasty.

The atmosphere was warm, the service very attentive, and the food outstanding. The prices were high, especially for wine, but it was worth it.

This is not a "Portuguese" restaurant with only traditional dishes. The fish was fresh and cooked in a straight forward but well-flavored way. Don't get the champagne, it seems a bit steep. Crowded and lively with busy attentive service. A winner.

Ferreira's on Peel St. is one of those great finds. The food is excellent, particularly the seafood. The wine list is great and the servers very professional and attractive.

We visited on a Tuesday evening and it was packed! Luckily, we had reserved ahead. Everything we tried was very good: lamb, grilled calamari, octopus, shrimp, cod. It is definitely a good place to have fresh seafood. The deserts also looked great! The wine was also very good. The service team was very courteous and attentive, the music and atmosphere... More

We traveled to Montreal on a foodie adventure and heard of this restaurant from a variety of sources. When we arrived, there was a loud, disco like sound track that kept pounding deep bass notes throughout the evening. We expected at some point there would be a change in the nature of the music---did not happen. We asked to be... More

I was there with my husband and friends. This seems to be a popular place because although we had reservations for 7:00 p.m. the place was already crowded. The restaurant has an elegant decor and all waitresses wear the same form fitting dresses. It is located in a trendy part of town, with a lively crowd. Our waitress was very... More
