I was a regular at this establishment for years. Over the years with the change of administration it was a luck of the draw what service you would get and the quality of food.

This tiny establishment serves up the most delicious grilled chicken in Montreal. Make sure to sample their other Portuguese specialties.

Amazing service and delicious food! Every time I come the portions are very generous and the food is delicious. We were here for a special event and the staff was fast and friendly, always checking on us to see if we need anything- they didn't forget about us like other restaurants sometimes do when you have a large group. You... More

I love this restaurant. Either for lunch or dinner the dishes are delicious and fresh. My favourite is the octopus, the grilled squid or the cod. The chicken is delicious too. The portions are quite big- amazing value for money. The only disappointing thing is that on my last visits I started noticing that when paying in cash the waiters... More

Well we have gone there twice and liked it but not more than that. Known for their chicken, it is a pretty good dish and arrives very fast. The service is fast but some nights there's a crowd so waiting for a table can be long. The thing I didn't like is that you're claiming to be authentic Portuguese food... More

Staying in Villeray-Saint-Michel-Parc-Extension

Neighbourhood Profile
The most ethnically diverse of all of Montreal's neighbourhoods, Villeray-Saint-Michel-Parc-Extension (or, Parc-Ex) stands at the city's centre, a hub for rail and metro traffic. Starting at the old station where the Canadian Pacific used to disembark, the brick-and-mortar surroundings of Parc-Ex have a homey feel, with leafy lawns and bicycle lanes seamlessly incorporated into the landscape. With prominent Greek and Spanish communities, Greektown includes the tastiest stops for brochettes and shawarma, and local bars entertain an excitable soccer fanbase. Jerry Park and Stade Uniprix stand ready for sports diehards to enjoy a game, while the the Complexe Environnemental Saint-Michel and Le Taz skate parks invite athletes to train and compete. Though built for the active and best by day, Cirque du Soleil, the TOHU center for arts, and the Le Boulevard shopping centre offer diversions for those who wish to stay late.
