Eat at the famous Café des Deux Moulins

Do you want to relive the movie " Amélie from Montmartre " by Jean Pierre Jeunet? You liked the atmosphere of the café? It's 130 meters from the Relais Montmartre. Follow us, we tested it for you.

The cult movie

Do you remember the young Amelie in Amélie from Montmartre? This young woman with a vivid imagination played by Audrey Tautou is a waitress in this typical Parisian café.

Watch the trailer of the movie:

The café does exist! It is called the Café des Deux Moulins, as in the film. Jean-Pierre Jeunet, the director, used to frequent it before selecting this location for the film. It is in this café that Amélie and Nino Quincampoix (Mathieu Kassovitz) have the only face-to-face exchange in the film.

We tested the Café des Deux Moulins for you

We recommend you rather the first room which is more typical.

Here, we eat for cheap. The service is equivalent to that of a bouillon, like the Bouillon Pigalle that we tested recently (read our article). The starter, main course and dessert are 19€.
It's simple and good. Two eggs with homemade mayonnaise and a glass of rosé: A Parisian bistro atmosphere.

We then ordered a fillet of sea bass, which is in the suggestions of dishes of the day. It's slightly overcooked but the fish is fresh and the accompaniment is very correct for the price.

Special mention is for the Pana cotta and red fruit coulis, which is really delicious. I'll be back for that alone!

In short, a starter, a main course, a dessert and a quarter of rosé of correct qualities for an economic price in a "Vintage" atmosphere.

Did you know that?

Jean Pierre Jeunet says about the film shot in Montmartre: "We got rid of all the cars in the streets, cleaned the graffiti on the walls, replaced the posters with more colorful ones, etc. Let's say I tried to exercise as much control as possible over the aesthetic quality of the city. Let's just say I tried to exert as much control as possible over the aesthetic quality of the city.
Amélie Poulin was the first digitally graded film. "At the time, before digital, you couldn't do anything with the colors. All of a sudden, it was an open door to do whatever you wanted.../...Today it seems almost too much. I would tone down the colors. It's almost aggressive. At the time we could afford so much that we did not deprive ourselves. We went very far in the colorimetry" says Jean Pierre Jeunet.
Three months ago, Jean Pierre Jeunet, shoots a very funny short film that he calls "The true story of Amélie Poulain". The text is always read by André Dussollier. A must see.
