Can’t-miss Portuguese restaurants in Montreal

I like – no, I should say I love – Portuguese food. It’s like a burst of sunshine in my mouth! 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

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!

Sardine Rose

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

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!


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.

Restaurant BEBA

3900 rue Éthel, 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!
