“Perfection”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2014

From the moment you sit down the food is flowing. I was not expecting such great service and definitely how attentive they were. My wife and I really enjoyed our meal and the experience. The only thing I didn't like was that the wine decanter had a small chip on it. With bottles of wine ranging from 50 to 1500, I think that they can and should buy a new one.

“Fantastic food and great service ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2014 via mobile

We visited Montreal for our anniversary and wanted a special dinner to celebrate our 10 years together. As it was our first time there, I was pleasantly surprised when we received a hand written note from the chef welcoming us to europea. The food was fantastic, the sommelier's wine recommendation matched our meal perfectly. I loved all of it and will go back when I revisit Montreal. The icing on the cake was the meringue that they gave us at the end of the night, great remembrance for a very special night!

“Emperors Meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2014

This is the second time I was in Europea for dinner. The service is always top notch and the food good enough to die for. Since I last visited about 2 yrs ago, their service and chef's standards have further improved. I ordered a chef's tasting menu which is usually a bit pricey, but it is worth every single penny.

The scallops, chicken and the sea bass were brilliant and so was the creative presentation of each and every item. Service was as usual absolutely top class and all of us had a great time.

Dear kolkatacool,

Thank you very much for your 2nd visit but especially for your feedback on your last dinner in August. The last Tasting Menu is a real success and everybody love the Seabass cooked on a bed of hay and Citrus.

We look forward to serving you again,

“A MUST if you enjoy fine cuisine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2014

I have been to this restaurant 3 times in the last 4 years and I have never been disappointed. I recently went for lunch and food and service were both excellent. The lunch menu is more affordable and will allow you to experience all that Europea has to offer with a less expensive bill in the end. A MUST if you enjoy fine cuisine.

Dear Binou1979,

Thank you very much for your 3rd visit this August. If you come for the lunch to Europea is a right way to discover Jérôme Ferrer's cooking. We are only opened every day from Tuesday till Friday and Monday during December.

Sincerely Yours,

“To Die For, To Die For, To Die For!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2014

This was not a meal, but a fine dining experience! From the first contact to the time, 3 hours later, that we walked out the door, full but not stuffed, we reveled in a very fine meal.

My companion ordered the smaller tasting menu and I ordered just an appetizer and entree. However, I was treated the same as he, and got all the courses. They graciously accommodated my gluten-free needs in all courses, adjusting as necessary and assuring me with every course. After an initial delicious pre-appetizer, they brought a "lobster cappuccino", a creamy, rich lobster flavored drink in a cappuccino cup. First thing to die for!

I have let a couple of weeks go by and I'm afraid I didn't write it all down, but the courses kept coming. My foie gras appetizer was buttery and delicious. Another little gem was a piece of very rare (raw?) salmon served in a fake book box which when opened, offered a billow of sweetly smelling wood smoke! Such creative presentation! And the salmon melted in our mouths with its wood smoke patina.

Somewhere in there they served a mouth cleanser, cucumber and lime sorbet, delicious as everything else.

Our entrees were scallops for him and Surf and Turf (filet mignon & crab legs) with a wonderful sauce, Bordelaise if I am not mistaken. My bite of his scallop was devine and the filet was wonderful with the sauce.

We did not get the wine pairings, as we can only drink one glass, but each tried a good wine with dinner.

The first dessert brought was best: a passionfruit cream, very light and creamy, just enough to sweeten your tongue. Second they brought a candy tree adorned with with four big fluffs of the pinkest cotton candy, and tied with presumably handmade candies, and dried fruit lollipops. Again, so creatively presented, though our least favorite part of the meal. We would have been fine with just the passionfruit cream.

As if that all wasn't enough, they presented us with take-home packages of small vanilla cakes for him and a large meringue for me (gluten free, of course!)

During the meal we were served by two waiters, and the maître d came around to make sure we were being well cared for. The waiters were there when we needed them but they were not obsequious. Please forgive me M. Tauhiro, If I have some details wrong but I am positive I have the overall rating accurate!

We just wish we got to Montreal more often for a special meal at Restaurant Europea! We both know this is THE BEST dining experience we have had, ever!

Dear Ispwroo,

A big thank you for your so well detailed comment. Every description is made with a lot of realism. Thank you to have appreciated our Surf & Turf with a 45-day-aged Filet Mignon. This meat is really incredible.

Look forward to welcoming you again,
