Moules Frites Family

We are planning a trip to Montreal in February. My husband, twin ten-year-old girls, and I are moules frites fanatics. Suggestions, please! Thanks

  1. How much are you looking to spend?

    I'm not a moules enthusiast but some like Bières Et Compagnie:

      Also, try Le Petit Moulinsart on St-Paul in Old Montreal, La Moulerie on Bernard, and L'Actuel on Peel.

      1. re: eat2much

        For visitors to Montreal, I'd second the recommendation for La Moulerie - moules & frites is pretty much all they do, and you can choose from a bunch of different sauces on the mussels. Their fries are decent from what I recall.

        They are located a few blocks' walk from the Outremont metro station, or there is a bus which goes right there from the station. They are located in a nice part of town, on Bernard street which has lots of cute shops and connects to Parc Ave, a main artery through town.

    2. Le Petit Moulinsart has gotten low marks for service and unmemorable food from this board and the press in the last couple of years. La Moulerie is kind of like the spaghetti/cheesecake factory of mussel restos. In your shoes, I'd head to Bières et Compagnie (almost as many different preps as La Moulerie), L'Actuel downtown or Brasserie Holder in Old Montreal, which offers only mussels marinières and au pastis but has lots of atmosphere, a real buzz and very good fries.
