Perched at the top of the rue Lepic, a market street leading from Le Moulin Rouge and winding up to the heights of Montmartre
and Sacré Coeur, Le Moulin de La Galette has been a place to enjoy outdoor entertainment since the second half of the 19th century. Its history has been documented by some of France’s best known artists, notably Renoir, and in the 18th century, the millers here would make money by selling ‘galettes’ – rye bread rolls – and milk to the villagers. Today, the offer of nourishment extends to a five-course tasting menu comprising two starters, fish and meat courses and a dessert all beautifully prepared using seasonal ingredients by a former Michelin star chef. With its lampposts, trees and trellises, the Moulin’s secluded cobbled terrace is oozing with the undying romantic ambiance of Montmartre, a real picture of enjoyment.
