Our experience

The fact that the institution was packed on a Wednesday evening in November led journalist Ave Dumas to make several observations. First, Ferreiras are hard workers who never compromise on toughness. Second, safe values ​​are popular. Third, wealthy customers do not experience financial distress. It’s also a good idea to spend your money at the many small restaurants of inspired chefs going through hard times.

Want to eat more octopus? In Ferreira, the answer is yes, three times rather than once. Unable to resist the call of the crispy tentacle this time, our journalist opted for a delicious starter of Portuguese bean puree, marinated pearl onions, salsa verde and smoked paprika oil. It is soft and tough at the same time.


Between the bottles of Ocietra caviar, tomahawk, and wine from Domaine de la Romane-Candy, luxury knows no bounds here. And we only needed two cocktails and a bottle of wine in the hundreds to come to a bill for two (with tax and tip) of $500.

Good to know

Ferreira is open for lunch Monday through Friday and every evening except Sunday.

Our experience

There is no shortage of tempting options, and unless you need to finish a meal with dessert, I advise you to order one or two more dishes. Desserts aren’t bad – although the first version of crème brûlée with pandan (a vanilla-flavoured plant) I’ve had wasn’t set enough – but the dishes excel above all in the spicy dishes.


If you avoid expensive dishes like whole fish and Hokkaido scallops, you can leave this restaurant with reasonable fare. Both cost about forty dollars, other more expensive dishes are $26 and most “tapas” charge between $8 and $18, depending on the quantity or value of the base ingredient. But it is very possible to spoil yourself if thirst and hunger are particularly high.

Good to know

Satu Lagi is open from Tuesday to Sunday, 5pm to 10pm.

Our experience

With a beautiful wooden terrace with canary yellow parasols and a flight of stairs leading to the bakery’s den, the place is interesting. Upon entering, you will see a small room. A shelf filled with beautiful bottles divides the space. At the very back, we come in front of the pastry counter: Croissant (plain, almond, ham and cheese), of chocolate, “Cinna Grisle” (flaky cinnamon brioche with Madagascar vanilla icing). These delights are made in an artisan manner. The croissants are made with flour and butter from Moulins De Soulanges from New Zealand, without food additives, and according to the baker, they take three days to make!


Pastries start at $3.25 (for a croissant) and go up to $9.75 for a popular. Scroll up. As for bread, baguette is $5 and country bread is $9. A slice of pizza is $6.75, buttered ham is $12.50, and bruschetta and banh mi — in limited quantities, always — cost $15. Wines by the glass start at $5.

P2 is a cocktail bar.

P2 wants to differentiate itself from its other festive address, Bar Palco. We come here in a cozy atmosphere, with the sound of hip-hop, R’n’B or 1990s music. The team is pleasantly surprised by former Falco customers who are now looking for a place to stay. They can chat over a (good) drink. “We want to bring people in a comfortable atmosphere to discover the world of cocktails from Verdun and beyond. », says co-owner Charles-Étienne Bégin. The goal has been achieved! Tuesday through Saturday, open late until 5 p.m.
