Très bien en famille, service impeccable, plats très bon pour le prix. Allez-y!
Great food but for such a small place the service was extremely slow. Took 20 mins to get someone’s attention and at points there was no waiter/waitress in sight.
Food is delicious and remember to book a table before you go just in case.
Lovely spirited restaurant w great atmosphere for energizing the evening and satisfying the palette. We only sampled a couple dishes as we did the local circuit. What we had was very nice and very well prepared. Service was excellent. I would certainly recommend to anyone looking for a taste of Portugal with a slightly groovy atmosphere - could for groups and couples.
Meilleur rapport qualité prix du Vieux Montréal. Parfait avec les enfants. Dommage qu’il y ait peu de gens donc moins d’ambiance
New Year’s Eve crowd made the service a bit slow, but they were courteous and offered a free appetizer for the delay. Excellent food and would recommend.
Nous avions réservé une table sur le site internet pour le réveillon mais en arrivant devant la porte le restaurant était fermé...
Nous avions pourtant bien reçu la réservation et le mail de confirmation par mail !
Relaxed, good tavern food. I like the 50//50 salad / fries option.
What an amazing restaurant! Great service, great style, and amazing food! As a hotel concierge, I will highly recommend this place to all my clients. I highly recommend the restaurant owners to start selling their sauces in mason jars. I know I would buy a bunch!
the food was fantastic. Great ambiance and awesome location.
I had a reservation but when we arrived it was not ready and we end up in the section bar very close to the kitchen, interesting, other young peope arrived after us and the waiter said oh you have a reservation, so pkease follow me ta the seated table section...!anyway , it took at least 1h30 before getting our main course and honestly, we are talking about chiken here,not the toqué, this what they do, chiken...anyway we ordered a chiken to share and honesly, very averag, inwas not served in whole, we have received a small cut pieces
Anyway we wont go back
Delicious tomato salad & 1/4 chicken dinner. neighborhood gem with consistently delicious food and great vibe.
Food was very good - grilled sardines, tomato salad and chicken. Casual, great service and ambiance.
Délicieux, endroit charmand mais bruyant. Service A++.
Great Portuguese style chicken in old Montreal. The chicken is well seasoned + fries are really good too. Quick + friendly service. Very reasonable prices, especially considering their location.
Nous aimions leur poutine "à la portugaise". Les deux dernières visites ont été décevantes. La poutine est ok, mais elle n'est plus unique et ainsi plutôt cher.
We shared a soup course and the salad (which was delicious). We then shared the special salmon entree. Very tasty, well prepared, and a good value for the amount of food we had.
We discovered Taberna on a visit to Montreal earlier in the summer and loved the place and the food so much that on a return visit to Montreal in September we introduced it to our son who just moved from Toronto to Montreal for graduate studies. It's now been added to his favourites list as well. Excellent value, very welcoming staff, relaxed atmosphere and DELICIOUS chicken! I would highly recommend Taberna!
Unbelievably slow service. Mediocre food. The floors were incredibly slippery, felt like the entire restaurant had been coated in a thin layer of grease. Was recommended the chorizo sandwich, which was bland-ish chorizo on stale bread. Friend had Piri-Piri chicken sandwich and said it was OK, but her bread was very stale as well. Tomato Salad was pretty good, so not entirely negative.
After spending $25.00 on a taxi to arrive on time.
When we arrived at the restaurant, we were told that they were closed because they ran out of chicken.
Dear Open Table,
I will no longer use your services until you can assure me that this will not occur again.
As usual delicious, great service. Love this place, any occasion is good to show up!
Essayez le 1/4 poitrine de poulet avec frites ou salade. Et en dessert : les beignets avec leur sauce au caramel, vous ne serez pas déçus
A Portuguese restaurant with not much Portuguese inside.
Food doesn't taste like Portuguese food.
Chicken was average and fish tasted "old freezer".
None of the personnel was Portuguese, not even the cook!
The servers, the 2 girls and the bearded guy, were all very kind.
Restricted red wine choice and expensive.
Not even Portuguese music.
Amazing food, but the experience was spoiled by the waitress at the end of our meal. Our tab was $25+ tax. We left cash $5 tip and she informed us that it was a poor tip and that we needed to leave more. She was very aggressive and rude. By all calculations that is a 20% tip for mediocre service in a city where 15% is the norm. It was very alarming, and we will choose other places for lunch in Old Montreal in the future!
All was great! The server was amazing- friendly and very efficient. The issue was the heat that was unbearable - no AC
Pas d’accueil, ignorance totale des serveurs, pas de bonjour. J’ai attendu 35 minutes avant que l’on m’apporte mon plat. C’était ma sixième visite à la Taberna et ma dernière.
The restaurant was not busy but the service was super slow. Half the menu was not available and the kitchen closed few minutes after we sat down even though they didn’t close for another 2 hours. The food was limited but decent. Restaurant is pretty but the service and food are mediocre at best.
Pas d’air climatisé, ce qui peut être un problème par les chaudes journées d’été.
Great experience, the food was amazing and our very kind waiter made the evening perfect.
The staff was very accommodating as the entrance to the restaurant was not wheelchair accessible, but the staff gave us a lift to get our friend into the restaurant. That in itself says a lot. The manager said that they would look into getting a ramp. The food was really tasty, well-prepared and the sangria is just to die for!!!!! Just be careful when walking as the floor is a tad slippery !!!
Really great find in old montreal , tasty food, nice ambience
We were a group of 5 out to celebrate a birthday and was great because the restaurant was cozy and quiet so we could converse without shouting. Also the food was very good and the service friendly and professional.
Great food and great ambiance for a reasonable price :-) Isabelle provide us with excellent service! Will return that’s for sure!
Nous sommes alles au Taberna pour une sortie entre filles un mardi soir.
Le rapport qualité prix excellent! Service parfait, la Sangria blanche vaut l'essais!
J'y retournerai volontier, je vous le recommande!
Excellent spot tucked away on a very charming narrow Old Montreal street. Super moist chicken done Portuguese style, a great value including olives/chick peas to start and a very nice side salad and/or fries combo. Extra piri-piri sauce on the side adds an extra zing, though it's not at all burning hot (there is plenty of Tabasco on the table for that!). Decent and reasonable wine list, and one Portuguese beer in a bottle. Deserts are tremendous, especially the home-made doughnuts with caramel sauce; also available, a creamy chocolate mousse and a Portuguese cream tart. Overall, an excellent dining experience, reasonably priced, and in a charming old building with exposed stone walls.
Juicy, fantastic chicken. We were very happy to dine here and will return!
Great piri piri chicken salad and fries
Service was a bit slow at first
Menu was missing a lot of items
Waiters ended up being very fun towards the end of the meal when restaurant got a lil more empty
As usual, the service was great and the food awesome! The poutine is absolutely crazy good!
Great food and service, as usual! Love it, will come back anytime
