Truly an amazing place.. Such a unique experience which we will never forget. The food was out of this world so was the service. Loved every second of the experience and enjoyed how much thought and effort was put into every single dish.

food was so great! People was very organized and provided very good service for us. Each course was amazing and we like them very much! It was a wonderful dinner in Montreal and I definitely go to visit the European again in next trip!

This was the best restaurant I've been to in a long time. Food was amazing, service impeccable, and entire evening went off without a hitch. My husband and I eat at top restaurants often...and this place outshined them all. We felt that the host took extra time and care to make our experience superior and we appreciated every moment. We recently got married and this was the perfect way to start off our honeymoon at Europea!

We went for our 25th anniversary and had the privilege of sitting at the chefs table. We had the beat dining experience of our lives. The food was exquisite. The food had multiple complex flavours with wonderful aromas and multiple textures, in each dish. The staff was so attentive and personable. The cheese selection was out of this world. The dessert was over the top. Lastly, sitting at the chefs table and watching everything in the kitchen was a real highlight. It is amazing to see how the kitchen works . Chef Luciano ran the kitchen like a maestro and every dish had his approval before leaving the kitchen. We also enjoyed watching the fact that when then crazy part of the night settled, he was smiling, joking and having fun. We loved our experience.

Spectacular as usual. Easily among the top 3 tables in Montreal, which is no small feat given the calibre of kitchens in this city. Outstanding value for money, every meal comes with a plethora of small bouchées and entremets, each more delicate and refined than the other.
Calarami entrée served in a stone bowl shredded to resemble tagliatelle was out of this world. Only two caveats: one dim sum as part of an otherwise fabulous scallop ceviche was all flour and too chewy, and the port sauce that came with the joue de veau and the beef was slightly too salty in our opinion... Otherwise a fabulous evening, and our waiter (Martin?) was just a riot, with a nice sense of humor and not an ounce of affectation, kudos!

Incredible experience overall. From the attentive and informative service to the beautifully plated and delicious meals, each more unique and exciting than the next. My now fiancé proposed to me and he couldn't have picked a more perfect atmosphere. The staff, aware of his plan, ensured our experience was perfect. Providing a personalized card from the chef, small treats between meals and a beautiful dessert. Overall, highly recommended.

Everything was described beautifully on the menu and looked lovely on the plate but tasted quite ordinary. The risotto was like glue, one of the signs of a mediocre kitchen. The wines by the glass were very overpriced. Over all Europea is more style than content... and not worth the money when are so many excellent restaurants in Montreal.

This is a must if you are ever in the area. The experience of the courses is incredible. There is nothing like it in comparison. The chef is inventive and trying new flavors, I give him props for doing so. Each course had a very unique feel and flavor. Wonderful!

I was looking forward to this culinary experience, what a perfect occasion to celebrate my birthday with an amazing meal that awakes new taste buds. Unfortunately I came down with a bug and during the second course I had to leave. I didn't have a chance to complete the meal. The staff was amazing & tried their best to make me feel better. Hopefully I will be able to return to really experience this extraordinary Establishment.

A creative, whimsical, and fun gastronomic experience. Just seems like chef has fun with the dishes, and in turn, so does the audience. It's pricey, but compared to similar experiences, good value for the money. I had the top wine pairing with the full tasting menu, and they did a nice job of matching the flavors. Service was friendly and genuine. Wine list was thorough but not as many half bottle/by the glass options as one would expect for this type of restaurant, given the tasting menus/mixing and matching--don't know if it has to do with provincial availability. Overall impressed and think this would be a top choice in any city in the world.

This is a once in a lifetime thing to do: order their 12 course meal with wine pairing. I'd never do it again and can't actually say I'd even recommend it. The service here stands out most. I'd go back just for that.

We went in 2015 and loved it. As we went back to Montreal we decided to have another dinner there and loved it just as much. The food was really good with all the free give away from the kitchen. The multitude of desserts offered was, as last year, surprising and abundant. We took the host menu and we highly recommend it.

While the reviews set our expectations at the high end of the range, they were exceeded in every dimension. The service was excellent, highly attentive without being intrusive. The menu was original and a source of consternation; how was one to chose from the many compelling options? The food was delicious at every course. And the surprising and unusual treats before and after the meal topped off a perfect evening. I can recommend without hesitation and am looking forward to my next visit.

It's my second time at Europea and it was as great as my first time.
Excellent food, great service, all kind of surprises between meals.
A little note from Mr. Ferrer wishing me a nice evening.
My guest told me that she wants to go back. And of course me too.
An outstanding dining experience
Europea exceeded our expectations for both the dining experience and quality of each course. The special surprises and presentation of each course added overall experience. Would definitely recommend for someone looking for a unique and special dinner.
Creative and delicious
We opted for the 12-course tasting menu, which was full of inventive and delicious surprises. Be aware that while paced out over several hours, this menu also includes some amuse bouche type bites and frequent offers of (excellent) bread, so expect to leave completely stuffed! Water refills got noticeably slower as the restaurant filled up over the course of the evening, but service remained friendly and helpful throughout. The sommelier was particularly wonderful, explaining her pairing choices to us (and all paired beautifully with the intended courses). This is a definite splurge, but well worth checking out for a night of fine dining in downtown Montreal.
Magical experience at Europea!
We have chosen the tasting menu and it was a great pleasure for our eyes and mouth.
The different plates were served by waiters who acted very well. It's like if we were part of a play as they introduced the plates in a theatrical way. We did appreciate it a lot.
The amuse-bouche were delicious and very unusual. Delicacies were extraordinary and numerous, so the dessert was almost too much.
A great experience for a special occasion.
ABSOLUTELY THE BEST!!!!!
I love my California Cuisine, because it is outstanding.... but, I'm sorry, Napa, Montreal has you beat!!! And single-handedly by Restaurant Europea!!! I am so happy I found this place!! So amazing!!! So many "treats" and "surprises" and "extras"!!!! I don't want to spoil the surprise, but lets just say you get so much more than you pay for!!!! I will be back!!!!
Rare to find in the heart of downtown Montreal
I was looking for a place to take my family while they were visiting me for my graduation.
I was hesitant to go here due to the price point, but they had a lunch course of 4 at a very reasonable price. All members of my family are quite petite and do not eat that much so this table d'hote was a perfect choice for us.
The cutlery was very beautiful and they also provided appetizer of the day which was displayed very interestingly.
I would definitely recommend his place for day-to-day dining as well as for a special occasion.
Good for special occasions
Very good and unique food experience. The tasting menu with wine pairing is very interesting.
However, for the price paid you would expect everything to be expceptional and it was not. Service is efficient but distant and at times progammed like robots. Little personal connection.
Many creative dishes and surprise effects.
Extraordinary dining experience
Not just dinner. A dinner and dining experience. Wonderful food beautifully served like a flawless dance performance. Everything was perfect from beginning to end. We were there to celebrate a special anniversary and it definitely made for a memorable evening. Thank you to the Chef and all our attentive servers.
A MICHELIN TYPE RESTAURANT
If Montreal was on the Michelin list, I could see this place getting 1 or 2 stars. From their tasting menu, some dishes will absolutely floor you with their taste and presentation. However, 2 of our dishes had their salt levels off. One was under salted while the other was teeth clenching salty. Anyways its an experience well worth it in Montreal. It has that "it" factor. It is also very filling, so be sure to go easy on some of the early snacks and bread they bring out.
