I am not someone who complains easily about service - check out my other reviews here, from around the world. This used to be one of my favourite low-key, unpretentious but tasty Portuguese food restaurants in Montreal, specializing in grilled chicken. We have enjoyed going there for years. That all changed last Sunday when we arrived to a nearly-empty restaurant for a late lunch and the waiter greeted us grumpily in barely intelligible French, Italian, Portuguese and English - all of which we speak fluently. He didn't want to seat us at the window, complaining of the sun. When he finally agreed after telling him we wanted the sun, he sneezed all over the table and continued grumbling and complaining that it was his break. We decided to leave rather than have our day completely ruined by this unpleasant and totally unacceptable experience. Look, there are thousands of restaurants in Montreal and literally hundreds within a short walking distance of this sad place! Never known for its refined cuisine or great service, Chez Doval has fallen on sad times. This sultry and unpleasant waiter ruined our visit and we will never go back. DO NOT PATRONIZE THIS AWFUL RESTAURANT!
