“NOT-Authentic Portuguese Food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

The ambiance of this small restaurant is overall very pleasant. This is a high end / VIP type of place. Very well located. The service is excellent---but all this comes with a price! Good selections of wines, ports.

However, I found the menu to be very limited; 1 chicken dish, 1 beef dish, etc. The food, although tasty, it is not typical, authentic Portuguese food. Not only am I a connoisseur, I am a native PORTUGUESE!~

“Excellent Portugese seafood dishes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

Another excellent Montreal restaurant! Ferreira has a portugese theme, excellent seafood and a seafood risotto to die for! The service staff were very helpful in picking a wine, as they do feature many Portugese and Spanish wines I was not familiar with. The restaurant is long and narrow -- the front part by the street is a bit crowded, so I try to get a table towards the back. Good food for a good price - with wine, oysters and entrees $200 for 2 people

“Always good.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

This was our third time here and was even better than the last two. Service was better than when we went one or two years ago. We loved our waitress and the ambiance. It can get loud but it just makes it lively. We arrived at 6:30 pm which was early but made it quieter at the beginning to enjoy the music and decor. The Rice/Seafood dish is to die for. No other restaurant serves a seafood dish like this. My husband had the sardines and the black cod and he loved it. When we come to Montreal we always try to come here.
