Moulin de la Galette

Le Moulin de la Galette

Right at the top of Montmartre hill, the next chapter of Moulin de la Galette’s story begins, with all of the dance-hall vibe so dearly beloved by 19th-century impressionists along with traditional, tasty food.

It is the last windmill in Paris: the sole survivor of an age when Montmartre was still part of the Parisian countryside. Transformed into a cabaret by the Debray family, the Moulin de la Galette is a popular spot with local artists, who crowd in to sample tasty morsels and enjoy the cheery atmosphere.

Moulin de la Galette is fast becoming a favourite hang-out for artists, and was even immortalised by Paul Renoir in his famous painting, ‘Bal du moulin de la Galette’.

Although this legendary place was recently refurbished, it has lost none of its charm, and offers a menu of fresh, seasonal produce sourced from the very best suppliers: foie gras from Maison Masse, meat from Olivier Metzger – which is grilled using natural charcoal – and delicious vegetables from the fields of Saint-Eustache.

Perched at the top of Rue Lepic, there are incredible views to be had across the city of Paris from the floor-to-ceiling windows in its dining room and its idyllic terrace. An absolute must which you’ll happily go back to time and time again!
