Just had a dinner there. All was good. The grilled calamari was a must-have. The black cod and the Alberta lam rack were both great. The setting was modern, clean, and the location was good. Although the price tag was not attractive, the food and service would make you ignore that. All in all, I'm happy that we picked this... More

Very enjoyable, up scale dining experience. I have to admit, it was the first of all the restaurants in Montreal I felt under dressed for. Both of my daughters had their Risotto's and they where very good.

The wife and I were staying in downtown Montreal for the weekend. We were going to catch a concert at the Belle Centre and just happened to walk in on this restaurant as it looked very well appointed and had a good menu. It turned out to be quite a find. To start we ordered wine by the glass, and... More

From the appetizers to the desserts, everything we had here was exquisite - perfectly cooked, excellent produce, good service. I cannot think of anything to change! The seafood rice (main course) was super-good, but the grilled calamari appetizer almost topped this! And then "fondant" for dessert, making this a very memorable meal! If there is one (small) negative, it would... More

Everything we ordered was delicious . Chorizo for appetizer, a little spicy but good. Shrimp and Lobster dish with rice was fabulous. Totally authentic , coming from a Portuguese family it was just like home. We sat outside on the patio very nice.

We have been to Montreal many times and our meal at this restaurant was the best food we have had in Montreal. Our waiter was very friendly and made a number of good suggestions. My husband and I shared a delicious salmon tartare appetizer which was wonderfully seasoned. I had the lamb rack and my husband had the roasted black... More

The restaurant offers almost entirely Seafood cuisine. There were certain Portuguese food staples that I thought were missing so I was a bit disappointed. That being said, I ate duck risotto which was quite delicious. There was more risotto then what I could manage to eat. My mother ate a steak, which she said was average...but that may not be...

We were in Montreal for our 25th anniversary and we had considered going to Portugal instead so we decided having a meal at Ferreira (which had a good reputation) was a good idea. Maybe it's because we aren't seafood eaters (it doesn't like us) but our meal was expensive and decent but never wowed us. Our waiter was attentive but... More

My husband and I went here on a Thursday night without a reservation. They had a few tables inside but we chose to sit on the patio. We're so glad we did because we had the pleasure of being served by Laurent. He was personable and knowledgeable and helped us make some very good selections of food and drinks. I'd... More

This has always been one of our fave spots to eat when in Montreal. We had dinner the other night and while the food was tasty, service good and wine good we left feeling like we'd been gouged! I always order the seafood rice casserole and usually can't finish it all. This time, it looked like half of it was... 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.
