Best moules et frites in Old Montreal?

We'll be staying in Old Montreal in June and want a close-by place for moules et frites so we can catch the fireworks on saturday. Where do you suggest?

  1. The only place I know of that will serve mussels in Old MTL, is "Le Petit Moulinsart" (


    (As far as I know,
    you will not be able to see the fireworks from most (if any) restaurants in Old MTL.

      Thanks, Max. Oh, I didn't mean see the fireworks from a restaurant. We come every year and usually end up in the Plateau at a wonderful BYO, but then hurry back to Old Montreal to watch the the park! So, we try to eat somewhat nearby on the Saturday night of the fireworks so we don't have to rush!
      I will check out their website. Sorry for the confusion..and thank you very much!

    2. Holder has moules/frites on their menu, and they were pretty decent last time I had them.
