Luckily, Montreal has some fantastic establishments that put delicious, authentic Portuguese cuisine on the table for all to try. Start your culinary journey with any of these restos and you’ll be hooked!

Portus 360

1
777 boul Robert-Bourassa, Montréal, QC H3C 3Z7

Formerly known as Portus Calle, Portus 360 was launched in April 2016 when renowned chef Helena Loureiro moved the restaurant into its new 29th floor revolving home. The 360-degree views of Montreal are truly spectacular. Personally, I find it festive and romantic; I like to go there to spend time with the people I love. I’m also loopy for the squid stuffed with chorizo and the octopus, which is simply sublime!

Grill Barroso

2
1480 rue Ontario E, Montréal, QC H2L 1S3

The petiscos (tapas) are sublime; the octopus, squid, chorizo and chicken quite simply excellent. If you feel like eating on the nearby waterfront, all of the dishes can be ordered to go. The chicken special family meal is definitely value for money!

Chez Doval

3
150 rue Marie-Anne E, Montréal, QC H2W 1A5

The grills are delicious, and well-priced at that. My own favourite is the chicken, with its excellent taste of chargrill and spice – happiness on a plate!

Romados

4
115 rue Rachel E, Montréal, QC H2W 1C8

The place to go to enjoy a marinated chicken, grilled slowly over charcoal, which will set you back less than $10 for the meal. However, be prepared to queue, or alternatively book in advance.

Taverne F

5
1485 rue Jeanne-Mance, Montréal, QC H2X 2J4

Located in the Quartier des spectacles, Taverne F is one of my top places to eat before or after a show. Every day, after 8pm, you can enjoy three petiscos (tapas) for around $21. The confit pork and clams is sublime, as are the octopus, cod fritters and the fried calamari. Come to think of it, I liked all of the dishes!

Bistro Piquillo

6
3900 rue Ethel, Verdun, QC H4G 1S4

This bistro is in my neighborhood and I love going there! The chef, Jose, has fun in the kitchen, and this shines through in the food. You should absolutely try the fritters, the chorizo-stuffed mushrooms, the sardines and Anabela’s pasteis de nata made on site: pure joy!

Cantinho de Lisboa

7
356 rue Saint-Paul O, Montréal, QC H2Y 2A6

In a rush and looking for ready-to-eat Portuguese fare? Here you can tuck in on site or take the food with you: charcuterie or cheese platters, sandwiches, croquettes and more. Perfect for a picnic!
