Le Moulin de la galette

Le moulin de la galette is a Montmartre landmark located just a 6-minute walk from Le Relais Montmartre. It's a place steeped in history and emblematic, but it's also a restaurant where you can spend a pleasant moment.

Le Moulin de la Galette, today

A historic site

In the 18th century, as described by Charles Sellier in his History of Old Montmartre, the butte was home to at least twenty-five windmills.

As we wrote in our article "In the footsteps of Vincent Van Gogh", "The Moulin de la Galette is made up of two windmills: the Moulin Blute-fin to the west and the Moulin Radet to the east, both acquired by the Debray family, millers, in 1809. Between these two mills, a public ball opened in 1834, which became known as the "Moulin de la Galette" because the Debray family used to distribute galettes there.

Van Gogh, Renoir, Utrillo, Picasso, Toulouse Lautrec and others have painted the Moulin or bal du moulin de la galette.

A charming place

It's a touristy place, but that doesn't make it any less charming. In fine weather, you can enjoy a pleasant, secluded indoor terrace. It's best to come early in the evening to make sure you're in the right place.

The room is quite large and elegant. Only part of it is shown below.

What to eat?

The menu offers two courses for €31 or 3 courses for €39. The prices are right for a restaurant with such a great location.

We start with a sea bass ceviche with red fruits: sea bass, olive oil, blueberry, strawberry and raspberry, vinegared onion, spring onion, dill and lemon sorbet. It's very fresh and makes a very pleasant combination, even if? for personal taste, I would have preferred a less sweet lemon sorbet. It's a perfect summer starter and makes you want to make it again at home.

Enjoy this dish with a glass of rosé.

We continue with mussels marinière. Served with homemade pommes allumette. The products are fresh and pleasant in summer. The sauce could have done with more of the white wine and butter, but it's still very decent.

To finish, a perfect crème brulée: Well vanillaed, quite firm and fresh with a well-browned brown sugar. It's not too sweet. There's nothing wrong with this dessert.

All in all, a pleasant surprise for this tourist spot: You'll have a great time in this historic restaurant, for a fair price considering the quality of the dishes and their ingredients. Service is fast and efficient. We'll be back.
