Would very happily return to Ferreira Cafe soon. The grilled calamari appetizer was stunningly wonderful and both the Black Cod and Seafood rice casserole were fantastic. Paulo the sommelier did a fantastic job with his recommendations. One miss in the service in that no one ever told us there were dinner specials -- but we already had agonizing choices with... More

Our night started on a sour note and ended on a high; Let me explain: We booked this restaurant a week in advance because we had heard such amazing things. That being said, the crazy good food was over shadowed by the exceptionally bad service. When we ordered wine at the table, our server "Alice" proceeded to tell us that... More

When we opened the menu for Café Ferreira we saw a small symbol beside some of the dishes. It turns out that is the symbol for the Montreal Canadiens hockey team. If you selected one of those dishes, you were guaranteed to be finished your meal in time for the opening face off at the nearby Bell Center. We were... More

Service was very attentive and helpful. Our server was able to help choose the wine and the selection for our meal. He even rushed my son's order so that his food could come out first (he is five years old.) we had a lovely meal, everything was delicious. The chicken is their specialty and was extremely moist. I had the... More

I really could not have enjoyed my meal more. It was the first visit to Ferreira for my wife and I and we double dated with another couple. We shared everything on the table. We really did it up with oysters, a seafood platter, steak and one of my new favourites duck rice. Soooo good. We followed all of that... More

This restaurant was hugely busy when we visited, with several large groups there, but the service was still spot on. They even turned down the music which was a bit too exuberant above us! Everything we ate was delightful, particularly the fish and despite being busy, we weren't hassled at all. You won't be disappointed.

Overall we had a very nice meal here. The appetizers were great. I had the sardines and my daughter had the octopus which was extremely tender. My daughter had the black cod for her entree and it was very tasty. I had ordered the seafood rice casserole. The problem arose when they brought me the bouillabaisse instead. I immediately pointed... More

Staying in Centre-Ville (Downtown)

Neighbourhood 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.
