Amazing meal as always at Casa Minhotta. The filet mignon on the stone was absolutely to die for - it remains my favorite meal out in Montreal. The house wine is excellent and the service is just right. A real treat!

The food is incredibly tasty. Unfortunately the night we went, it was on Wednesday and there was a lack of service. Only one waiter and one boss boy for the whole restaurant. I will go back again because I really enjoyed the food and I hope that there will be more staff in the restaurant to increase the quality of service. Even if there were missing some staff, our waiter was very kind and sweet.

We finally tried this place after passing bye so many times to go to the restaurant next door.(Popular steak house)
We were pleasantly surprised. The decor and size of the restaurant was unexpected. Much bigger than it looks from the street with multiple rooms and I almost felt I was in Portugal. They have great dinner buns and even better marinated olives, we feasted on till we ordered. I had the Minhota salad with so many seasonal ingredients and a great house dressing, we also had the house soup, it was a hearty vegetable soup with noodle, it was very good. We had the grilled calimari and the grilled chourico sausage appetizers, they were good also. I ordered the Mixed grill, there were at least 6 different meats, beef, chicken, quail, pork sausage another sausage i was told it was veal and lamb, a kebob and lamb chops ( I think I got them all) we also had the filet mignon on a hot stone which had 3 dipping sauces. Very generous portions...I should have asked for a more typical Portuguese dish to really get a taste of the cuisine. At least the appetizers and our desserts were more along the Portuguese taste. The pear in porto was good very nice( generous with the porto) the Portuguese egg tarts were very good as well.

Was recommended by a colleague as good food and service . Unfortunately it was Disappointing as was a small resto which became quickly noisy a restaurant with three large groups .. so Conversation became impossible . Most items on menu not as expected .. sangria with kiwi ?, had a paella festival but with only one type of paella which had meat ? Seafood rice dish that was recommended was more of a soup .. but seafood itself was good . Was a special occasion ( bday ) but it was not acknowledged despite my request on the reservation and to one of the waiter . Service was not best , but understandable given the conditions . Will not recommend or return as many better resto in Mtl .

We had a relaxing evening sitting in their back dining room as a party of 9. Had the grilled seafood platter and seafood rice along with Portuguese chicken - all were very tasty. We had sides of mussels, snails, shrimp and shredded cod which were also very delicious. Good value. We would come back again! The owner/waiter provided excellent service and wonderful recommendations.

Warm welcome, authentic Portuguese cuisine - a family welcome place, lots of noisy kids but the great food and wonderful service made up for it. A true find - I will most definitely go back. The cod and spicy shrimps are a must have!

We love seafood so we ordered a table d'hôte for 2 with sardine and moule as the entrée and the seafood with rice in the deep pot as the main dish. Everything was absolutely delicious and each dish had a good quantity. Huge plate of dessert. Nice ambience and the waiter was very friendly. It was the second visit for me and I will definitely go back there again.

This was a return visit (two years ago the last). The food was as if 1970's English cooking with Portuguese ingrediants. Terribly overcooked and tasteless.
Judging from some of the other reviews the food must be completely inconsistent.
Service was mediocre.
A terrible waste of a night in Montreal with so, so many better options.

Le service est très bien (Quand on nous oublie pas), les plats sont très bien préparés mais ils sont trop cher, c'est bien dommage. C'était une occasion spéciale, un souvenir du Portugal, mais l'addition est venu un peu gâcher la fête.

I have been a fan of casa minhota for many years. Always displayed excellent food and service. This lunch was of much lower level of quality and presentation than usual. I have a sense of a change of ownership/management. Might return once but would not return unless quality is restored. I have lived in Portugal for many years and speak the language, so I know good Portuguese food. Sorry for this less than happy review.

We love Casa Minhota and have been there many times. The food is excellent and so is the ambiance. However if there is one factor I think this restaurant needs to improve on it's time management. It always takes such a long time to get served the main course. The olives and bread and some appetizers come fairly quickly but the main dishes always seem like they are literally making from scratch. Hopefully you won't get the only non speaking portuguese waiter who in fact speaks spanish. Nothing wrong there except he insists on speaking spanish when spoken to in portuguese. Now spanish and portuguese are similar but different and besides, this is a portuguese restaurant. The waiter should otherwise just stick to French/English. My portuguese parents were a little annoyed.

We’ve been here before & will return because food, portions, value & service are all very good. On this night we were 6. The restaurant was very busy; we were there 3+ hrs. too slow. We had excellent Sangria. Bread refilled 2x. Nice black olives. Very good appetizers: soups, salads, mussels (huge ones), sautéed squid & escargot. Mains were Grouper, Halibut, Octopus, Filet & Shrimp, Rack of Lamb and Veal in Porto; with potatoes & vegetables. Again very good. Desserts were Egg Tarts, Pear in Porto and a very yummy house specialty. Extra dessert & specialty coffees were added for the slow-ness but 4 had full course so that was included anyhow. Not sure if it was the kitchen or wait staff that created the too slow pace. In any case we enjoyed our meal and we still will return because the restaurant is very good & reasonable. Definitely give it a try.

We had mussels and caldo verde to start, then moved to a wonderful cod fish, while vinho verde. Everything was so sensational that we stayed for an early dinner to have the cod fish again.
We also loved the waiters!!!
