There was a large party celebrating a birthday which accounted for the higher noise level. Not a problem.

Best Portuguese restaurant in Montreal by far. The Cataplana,Grilled Calamari and Fisherman's platter is a must. I will definitely come back. And to top it off the service was fantastic.

We are from out of Town, and came here for Authentic Portuguese food. It was "spot on"
The Owners made us feel at home, and they were attentive to any allergies you may have
The appetizers were Excellent, and the whole fish was cooked perfectly
It's a little outside of downtown Montreal, but the restaurant is in a swanky section that was a lot of fun
when e revisit Montreal, we will be back here, and that says it all...

This was our first time at L’Etoile de l’Ocean - good quality traditional Portuguese food, served in a traditional setting. My wife and I had fish (halibut and cod), both well prepared. The steak and frites on the children’s menu could be served to adults, it was a full size bavette. Dessert and espresso were included with the main meal. Very friendly service.

Don’t be deceived by the unimpressive exterior. L’Etoile de L’Ocean has a warm and charming atmosphere inside. But the best part about the place is the food! We had fresh, delicious grilled whole fish on the table d’hote which included an appetizer, dessert and coffee for a very reasonable price. Also the service was excellent! Definitely coming back.

We went before a show, and had an early dinner. The service was excellent. Good portions and authentic. I would definitely go again. Parking can s available, but ask before going, so you can go straight there.
