What a great portuguese restaurant.. Expensive but a nice treat doesnt hurt anyone. The food was excellent and the presentation of the plate was impressive. The Salted Cod was superb !

Il n'y a pas de meilleur restaurant pour les poissons et les fruits de mer au centre-ville de Montréal. Très belle carte des vins. Un magnifique endroit.

Montreal's First TASTE MTL

For Montreal's first ever restaurant week, we wanted to go to a familiar place that's usually unaffordable. The choice of Ferreira Café was easy: when else can you sample a full dinner for $39 before 10PM at this bastion of Portuguese gastronomy? Ferreira boasts an intimate and upscale interior with its long bar, signature wall of broken, colorful dishes and open-concept kitchen on the mezzanine level. The place is perfectly suited for a special occasion or for plain people-watching. The menu revolves around Portuguese seafood dishes; some are classics while others are updated versions. It also includes some meat dishes and surf & turf combos. For TASTE MTL, we had a choice of two starters, two mains and one dessert, all of which we sampled. The beautiful hostess warmly greeted us and showed us to our table, and our attractive waitress was very friendly and attentive. The food came in a timely manner and was at the right temperature. Really can't say much here, we wish all restaurants have service like this. We love Ferreira for everything it offers: the consistently good food, the ambiance, the great service… Whether it's for a special occasion, to show off to out-of-towners, or a pricey lunch, you won't be disappointed here. At $39, the TASTE MTL menu did a good job of showcasing this seafood haven's capabilities at a budget-friendly price.

Fantastic evening

Went with my lover for a late supper prior to dancing. The service from the front door onwards was stellar. Wonderful assistance from the Maitre d' in selecting a most delicious wine - Douro 1999 Barca-Velha. The presentation, decanting, glasses and facilitation of space by incorporating another table was very service focused. The portuguese amouse bouche tasting platter was delicious (sardines, grilled calimari, choricos) Mains: Mediterranean Sea Bass, Black Cod - both delicious, accompanied with asparagus & rapini, mushrooms, etc. Dessert: a shared chocolate lava cake accompanied by a very aged and delicious port. Apart from the food tasting delicious and extremely well presented (well done Chef) the service throughout was exceptional. Excepcionalmente bem feito! We will be back.

The atmosphere of this busy restaurant is...

The atmosphere of this busy restaurant is wonderful. We were a party of 13 and found the service extremely quick & professional. I don't know what everyone ate but the lamb chops were a hit at our table. Myself, I ordered the cod and that was a mistake. 3 ppl ordered the dish, one send hers back as it was raw, 1 did not like the texture and I had so many bones in mine, it was practically inedible. Would not order this dish again but overall it was a great evening

As usual, dining at Ferreira is an outstanding experience. The waiter was attentive, changed items on the menu and lowered the music as we requested. The fish was excellent, and don't even get me started about the dessert!! Can't wait to go back.

Everything was great. However, the waiters kept mixing the sparkling water and the regular water on the table and they kept filling them on top of each other in our glasses despite us asking only for water. This left us thirsty for water throughout the night.

Had a wonderful meal before the hockey game. Flawless service as always. The meal was delicious with meaty oysters to start, an amazing black cod on a bed of white beans topped with crispy rapini leaves, ending with flaky Natas and a robust cappuccino. My husband and I couldn't stop talking about how good the food was and it helped soften the blow of loosing the hockey game! Go Habs Go!

For the most part, a great meal! The food was delicious and the atmosphere was lively but still perfect for having conversations at our own table. Love the open kitchen! Unfortunately the service was a bit lacking in the middle of our meal, where we waited almost 40 minutes between appetizers and mains. In addition to this, we also had to wait a similar amount of time between our first and second bottles of wine. And finally we ordered bread for the table on two separate occasions (at the beginning of the meal and during that 40min gap) and never received it, and while it seems petty to complain about bread, I felt it worth mentioning due to the irony of our server going into detail about how spectacular the olive oil that came with it was going to be, stating that it was produced on the restaurant owner's private vineyard in the Douro!

Very enjoyable all round! Lovely restaurant, very comfortable and pleasant with Portuguese tile details mixed with modern touches. Service was very friendly and helpful, and fast without feeling rushed. Thanks Michael! Food was delicious. Had starter of sardines (amazing - we had them in Lisbon a number of times and these took us back). Also had a daily special appetizer which was a soft blue corn taco topped with sea urchin, tuna, caviar, avocado and more - very luxurious. We both had the Cornish hen - again reminded us of the delicious chicken in Portugal. Shared the dessert sampler which was just great. Favourite were the natas but the other ones were delicious and different - olive oil chocolate mousse, strawberry ice, creme brûlée Portuguese style. Very pretty but not too huge. We would definitely go back!

Noisy atmosphere. Tight quarters hope your neighbors aren’t loud because you are shoulder to shoulder, but expected for a Saturday evening. Service was appropriate Appetizers over priced for what you receive. Almost $20 for two bites of anchovies on soggy toast Main courses were adequate for the price
