Los Angeles, California

Our waitress, Marielle, was very professional and an absolute delight. Her English, being better than our French, made the conversation flow easily. She answered my husband’s questions about the beers they offered and guided us on the different mussels preparations. I selected a spicier version of mussels called Moules Picaros and my husband went with the Moules Madagascar. The bite in mine was just right, giving them lots of flavor yet not burning your taste buds. They were incredibly good. I washed them down with a Mort Subite Framboise. There are no words to describe the "yum factor" that I experienced. The sauce for my mussels was so incredibly tasty that I kept asking for more baguettes to soak it up.
Though the restaurant serves more than just mussels, it seems to be their claim-to-fame. The establishment is divided into two sections, with one being the more sedate dining area with more illumination and the other being a darkened bar area with entertainment later in the evening. They are open for lunch Monday – Friday from 11:30 am to 3:00 pm and their dinner schedule runs Monday through Saturday from 5:00 to 11:00 pm. Our experience was one that will definitely have us recommending them to friends and returning if we’re even in lovely Vieux Montreal again! Close
