recs for restaurants serving top quality cooked seafood, in addition to Ferreira Cafe and Milos

What other restaurants would you suggest?

Doesn't have to be a restaurant specializing in seafood, but I'd love to hear about any restaurants serving seafood that might be at a similar quality to what one finds at Ferreira or Milos. If you recommend any restaurants, could you also mention the likely noise level on a Friday night? I'd like to dine at a restaurant where conversation wouldn't be too difficult at the table.

Thanks for any suggestions!

  1. Vegera on Bernard is pretty good. Can't comment on the noise level, only ate there once on the terrasse. But it's the kind of place that should not be too loud.

    Pied du Cochon and garde-manger are mostly seasonnal, and very loud, so that would be out.

    I know Andiamo (part of the Jerome ferrer ''empire'') specializes in mediteranean seafood. I've never been, but don't think it's on the level of Ferreira. But it should be good, and it's mostly a lunch place, so quieter in the evening I would guess.

    1. I have always had excellent seafood at Panama on Jean Talon. IIRC, the noise level is pretty decent, conversation shouldnt be a problem

      1. I've heard that the folks behind Kitchen Galerie have a fish place in Old Montreal. It's called Kitchen Galerie Poisson. Haven't been but maybe you'll want to give it a try and report back?

          Since I get a lot of Greek-style fish frequently where I live, and I'll already be getting Portuguese-style seafood once during my stay, I decided to give Kitchen Galerie Poisson a try.

          Thanks again for mentioning it, I will report back!

            Thanks again for recommending Kitchen Galerie Poisson, mtlmaven ;-) What a great place! If you like seafood in a casual environment, definitely check it out. Everything was fresh, and I enjoyed everything I tasted (fried calamari, fried escargot, oyster soup, crab/bacon/corn soup, shellfish papardelle). Neat that they offer full-size or miniature desserts (on a stick).

            Hope to try more of their menu on future visits.

        2. Elounda is a good choice. Its in Ville st laurent though. In terms of noise level it will be busy but wont have blasting music Im pretty sure, should be ok.

          1. Thanks for all the suggestions.

            Haven't dined out in Old Montreal for a very long time, so maybe Kitchen Galerie Poisson is a reason to return! Thanks for mentioning it.

            I'm impressed to read online that Panama also serves patsa and kokoretsi- fairly difficult to find these days in TO (where I live- I only know of one place that serves either dish).

              I don't know about patsa, but, as of last year, Panama has stopped serving kokoretsi. We inquired about it when last we were there. The server said that the man who made it for them had ceased to do so. I'm pretty sad that I never got try it. I don't think it's available anywhere else in town.

              1. re: SnackHappy

                Maybe Mythos will make it, if you make a special request. Looks like they'll make goat and rabbit (and other Greek specialities) as a special request, with 2 days notice. http://www.mythos.ca/mythos_special.htm

                1. re: SnackHappy

                  I don't think Panama has served kokoretsi for several years(if I'm thinking of the same dish). I'd asked about it, in one of my more recent visits there.
