We ate a few weeks ago at Cafe Ferreira on 1446 rue Peel...the most awesome meal. Try the grilled sardines on toast points and the calamari for appetizers..their grilled fish for dinner is fantastic. A wonderful, unforgettable dining experience.

Barbara,
I agree with you that Milos is fantastic. However it is far from reasonable, actually quite expensive. As an alternative might I suggest another Greek fish restaurant Faros. Faros is just a few blocks from Milos. In my opinion the food is just as good, but at only about two thirds of the price. The restaurant itself is not as flashy as Milos, but the setting is quite adequate and the service is just as good, if not better. Try it you'll like it!
Murray.

Just back from Montreal today -- we went for the Veterans Day weekend -- 2 nights and had dinner at Auberge Boneparte one night and Les Remparts the other. I really preferred Auberge Boneparte. We went early and our waiter was extremely attentive. We had the "tasting menu" which was wonderful and gave us a chance to explore many different dishes. Ambiance was great. Les Remparts was nice, but the food selections were little "over the top" as far as I was concerned. I didn't even know what some of the things on the menu were. I wouldn't say that I am ultra-sophisticated, but I have been to a number of nice restaurants both in Paris and NYC, so I guess you could say I've been around a bit. I ended up trying caribou, which I guess was OK -- the presentation was lovely-- but tasted a little too much like liver to me. I probably will return to Boneparte, but on my next trip to Montreal I'll try something other than Les Remparts.

I got a recommendation to a place called Caprices and Nicholas and to something Saint Gabriel down in the Vieux Port. They seemed to be on the same level as Remparts which we decided against since we wanted to do more casual dining out this trip. Otherwise, we would have just gone back to Toque, which never fails to delight!
Kate, how cold was it ??

Just to let you know, the weather in Montreal has been quite warm lately. It was 17 degree celsius today which is pretty much unheard of in Montreal in Mid-November.
