My husband and I celebrated New Year's Eve at Ferreira Café. We had a seating at 7pm and the place was already packed. Wow! We love Portugal and this place brought back beautiful memories. The food was totally amazing! I had the Bacalhau and my husband had the Filet Mignon plus we shared the decadent dessert for two with some... More

The hotel concierge recommended this restaurant. We ate upstairs near the exhibition kitchen, which is separated from the restaurant by a plexiglass wall. The whole branzino was excellent and deboned nicely by the waitress. The black cod with a coating of porcini mushrooms and a red wine reduction was delicious. Had the sardines as an appetizer and the crème brulee... More

I ate there for the first time during a recent visit to Montreal and was most impressed. The modern Portuguese food is extraordinary, the service impeccable, the atmosphere very lively albeit less loud music would be welcome!- and the location very central. We had a superlative cod duo as a main course preceded by grilled calamars and the traditional custard... More

A few years ago we were strolling in Montreal when a man exited a restaurant and began telling us enthusiastically that we should eat there. This past week we finally returned to the city and booked a table at Ferreira Cafe. We now share that friendly stranger's enthusiasm. The service is terrific but the food is better -- a wide...

Might have been the best meal I've had in Montreal (or perhaps that would be Toque). The octopus first course with the smoky eggplant puree was exquisitely prepared and presented, with a crispy outside and perfectly delicate texture. Also, the generous portion makes it perfect to share. My husband had the grouper prepared in a Portuguese style (tomatoes and other... More

My wife and I waited for a special occasion to go there. "truffle week" convinced us to try it. Only one of the 5-course meal really tasted truffle. Sad. But I guess they are specialized in fish and sea food, so they cannot be blamed for that. My main concern was that the waitress CONSTANTLY tried to sell things that... More

Badly named, this is not a Cafe, but a fine dining restaurant Portuguese grill style. Great seafood as well as meat and poultry, super service, Clean, nice ambience and the seafood is cooked to perfection. No rubber seafood here, and nicely plated and garnished and not at all oily or salty. Place is packed day and night, a good sign... More

We had no reservation so were assuming we would not get a table, but as luck would have it, we got the last two seats at the bar. A great choice: the drinks and food were both exceptional. Don't miss the duck risotto - divine!

Would very happily return to Ferreira Cafe soon. The grilled calamari appetizer was stunningly wonderful and both the Black Cod and Seafood rice casserole were fantastic. Paulo the sommelier did a fantastic job with his recommendations. One miss in the service in that no one ever told us there were dinner specials -- but we already had agonizing choices with... More

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.
