Very memorable meal with wonderfully friendly staff, and an atmosphere that lends itself to making friends with other patrons - great food too, that took me back to a trip to Lisbon.

I visited recently with my wife for dinner. We've been there before and like to visit a few times a year. Casa Minhota is a long established restaurant on St Laurent boulevard in the heart of the Portuguese community and near many iconic establishments on what Montrealers refer to as 'the Main". Casa Minhota is charming and cosy and decorated... More

First time & delighted. Appears very busy on a Saturday evening. Wine list limited to Portuguese wines. We were a small group --- most settled on seafood platter for two, which appeared to be a House Specialty. The waiter warned us that it could serve three :) We should have listened, as it was fabulous, but unfortunately we had no... More

I don't normally write negative reviews but for this restaurant I'll make an exception. Upon entering the restaurant we were greeted and seated immediately. We ordered a carafe of wine and our dinner. The wine came quickly, making it difficult to leave, but for the dinners we had to wait forever. Our waiter seemed to be more interested in serving...

Family for dinner and started off with the waiter directing where each of us will sit at the table..... then when ordering he changed a few items telling us we wouldn't like what we ordered.... food was bland but waiter did recommend a good wine. Will not go back there again.

Never have had Portuguese cuisine prior to my visit to Casa Minhota, now that I am home I will be on a search for Portuguese restaurants in the Chicago area. The atmosphere was subtle, the servers were well informed, and extremely attentive. The food was delicioso, gostoso and saboroso (delicious). We were five people (3 adults and 2 teenage boys)...

This was the second time I visited this restaurant. I was not very impressed the first time, but the couple we were with wanted to go, so I figured that I possibly they had improved over the first time I visited. Big mistake. When we entered the restaurant, the main area was hotter inside then outside. We were seated in... More

We gave this place a try without knowing anything about it and were very pleasantly surprised. First off, it LOOKS like a Portuguese establishment with its white walls and Portuguese tiles. There is a nice wine list with lots of good Portuguese wines, but the house red that we had was very good. I had a veal dish that came... More

Staying in Le Plateau Mont-Royal

Neighbourhood Profile
Le Plateau Mont-Royal
Go native in Plateau Mont-Royal, where bespoke shopping, hip eateries, and wacky paint jobs attract locals and transplants alike, making it one of the city's most diverse and distinctly authentic experiences. A creative hub, Montreal's artistic elite pack the cafes along Rue Saint-Denis, where young painters and fashion designers draw inspiration from the playful murals and stately Victorian homes that dot the Plateau's side streets. Not a major sightseeing destination, a visit to Plateau Mont-Royal allows you to enjoy a local perspective, soaking in indie films, latte art, contemporary galleries, and the city's best bagels. A center of polyglot culture, Québécois accents mingle with shades of Portuguese, Greek, and Hebrew in the area's iconic Mile End district, where restaurants straddle chic designer boutiques, serving up chorizo and caldo verde. Friendliest to those on foot, it's a jungle of colourful awnings and sidewalk umbrellas, pedestrian walks and luxury shopping.
