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.

We ordered 3 portions of AAA Angus beef with wild mushrooms. The beef was perfect cooked but it tasted a bit salty and same as wild mushrooms.

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.

Excellent food. Excellent service. Overall top notch. Would return when in Montreal
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.
You can always count on Europea
Food was good but ambiance was quiet. The service was very attentive. Nice lunch special.
Mitchlin Star standard
This restaurant was a real find via Top Table, we were very pleasantly surprised, the service and food was exceptional and the wine list extensive and very good. Although expensive it was worth every $Can!
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!!!!
Best dining ever
Fantastic food and unbelievable atmosphere The food was endless in tantalizing bites We enjoyed the drinks almost as much as the food
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.
Clever and tastey array of small bites.

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.

It was a culinary experience where flavors, textures and imagination came together to put Europea in Les Grandes Tables du Monde 2016.
The food is definitely very interesting and unique. The lunch menu is a very good deal. I personally wasn't wow-ed by the food/flavor but I appreciate the thought put into the menu.
Fabulous place . Highly recommended

A must do on your bucket list. Amazing food, excellent service and worth the value. I know there were a few people on here that said it's too expensive but my husband did the full course menu and I just did an appetizer and main. It was quite reasonable. I also have a gluten allergy and the staff went above and beyond to make the night special. Every table I looked at seem to have a good time and enjoy the food. They make you feel like the night is just about you.
Probably the best restaurant!

Get ready for 4h dinner
Even though the food presentation was very arty and tasted amazing, everything got ruined by the fact that it lasted for 4 hours! My husband and I love good food but we were not ready to spend so much time in the restaurant. Also because we had to wait long between the servings we stayed hungry.

This restaurant came recommended by an acquaintance who had dined there before. After reading the reviews, I kind of knew what to expect. One of which, was a lot of time, up to 3 hours, although they didn't specify if that was lunch or dinner. We chose to go there for lunch and got the tasting menu, wanting to fully enjoy the experience. It started out great, but each course was served to us so fast, we were shocked. We had originally wanted to order a different glass of wine with our meat dish but we never had time. As soon as we put down our fork, another dish was served. I don't know if it was rushed because we were there for lunch but our entire dining experience was about 70 minutes. My husband and I were on vacation and so time was not really an issue for us. And there was empty tables in our area so I don't think there was a wait. The food was good but not great. Creative yes, but in our opinion, over priced. I get that you are paying for an experience but we were very disappointed.

Excellent food, innovatively presented. In general, I thought the "little" extras made the meal more than the entree and principle plates themselves, but the quality of the food could not be faulted. The servers were very attentive, and the staff made a reasonable effort to accommodate my wife's dietary restrictions.
Great night out
Excellent service, good ambience, food was very good and good value. Can't imagine anyone able to finish the whole degustation menu. Price reasonable too compared to other restaurant on the same caliber around the world.
We went there for the pre-fixe lunch as a birthday treat. We brought our (happily sleeping!) toddler. Everyone was very accommodating - the food was stellar. I'm still raving about how good it was a week later. If you are bringing a child, make sure that you only do the lunch seating, and that they're somewhat older as they need to have an appreciation for food. No picky eaters or chicken fingers here!
We had an amazing experience at Europea.
It was our first time there. Everything was great : food, service, ambiance etc. We had the 12 course menu. The foie gras was the best I had ever eaten. The dishes are really tasty and the appearance was great too. I found that the service was of high quality but in the mean time I did not feel stiff or awkward like in other really good restaurants. We could ask questions about the menu, the products etc. And finally they gave us a tour of the kitchen which was really nice !
I recently traveled to Montreal and decided to dine in the top-rated restaurant. EUROPEA was recommended. I had a delightful time. Dinner is a wonderful swirl of multiple courses done in very imaginative presentations. Had a superb meal and wonderful conversations with table neighbors and the staff, who also provided a quick tour of the kitchen. Highly recommended!

Great culinary experience! I went with the 12-course menu with the wine pairing and husband went with the 6-course menu. Everything tasted fantastic! His favorite course was the lobster cappuccino and I absolutely loved the red risotto and the foie gras. The service was attentive.

Food was good but no wow factor at all. Basic menu and outdated ideas. Most of the 12 service meal was served cold/warm when it was supposed to be hot. Service was very good at the beginning but as the evening went on the plates took longer and longer to arrive. Cutlery was the highlight of the night. Overprice for the overall quality of the experience. This restaurant runs on the reputation only. They need to rethink their menu and come in the year 2016. Our group was disappointed.
My fourth time here and once again greatness. Creative, imaginative, and yet returns to key things the restaurant is known for. Smoke, foam, and layers of flavours. Very highly recommended.
Absolutely loved every second of our night!!!!!!!!
My husband and I had a great night! We enjoyed our 4 hours of eating! Lol. Every dish was incredible, the plating and attention to detail was phenomenal. Europea did not disappoint, after reviewing many reviews and other restaurants we knew we just had to try it, So glad we did. We look forward to going again.

Absolutely amazing presentations. We had the tasting menu with wine pairing.
From the moment to when our final course of desserts, the experience was of the unexpected. I would give the restaurant 11/10 for service and experience. I came here with a few friends for a special occasion and would recommend this restaurant to anyone for something special.
