Based on the name, I had no idea how upscale this restaurant was. We went after a long day of touring in "schlepper" clothing. I was a bit embarrassed and would have gone back to the hotel to change before going. It was easy to get to from the metro - Peel Street. The food was amazing and service was... More

This restaurant is phenomenal! I use it for corporate groups all the time, and they always love it! The private room upstairs is perfect (they have their own entrance, our bar and fully private space). On top of this the food is AMAZING! The seafood is like nothing I've ever had before, and the service is great. Some people will... More

After we order a drink and looked at the menu, we realized this was not an Italian Restaurant, No Pasta on the menu. There was beef, lamb... More

Ate dinner in this stylish Portugese restaurant on a Sunday night at the recommendation of the bartender in our hotel. So glad we went. The restaurant decor is modern yet warm and pleasant. Our waitress was attentive without being pesky. We ordered a dozen oysters which were fresh and briny. Both my husband and I ordered the fish specials, halibut... More

Our last night in Montreal and we needed a reasonable meal in downtown. Ferreira is close to where we were staying and the concierge and various reviews led us to take a chance on this upscale Portuguese spot. The interior is definitely urban upscale, packed a bit tight and not particularly warm feeling. A rainy Sunday night had the place... More

I've been here a couple of times before and they have never made me disappointed. The fish is very fresh and perfectly cooked. They have a great selection of white Portuguese wine (and probably wine in general). Actually, if you understand wine and believe that Portugal has nothing to offer when it comes to white wine, then you should head... More

The mushroom, seafood risotto was the best my husband ever had and the boullibaise I had was good but almost boiling. It took ten minutes to cool enough to eat. The waitress was snarky and rude and rushed us as much as she could. The white wine she served was room temperature and I asked that it be chilled and... More

One of my friend invited me for dinner to this nice Portuguese seafood Restaurant. We seated in a minute, service was nice and staff was kind and helpful. Starters were delicious, bread and olive oil were nice. Fish that we ordered fresh and delicious. Menu is very convenient even for not seafood lovers. I will visit again in November.

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.
