Le Moulin de la Galette Restaurant Review: A sign at the entrance of the restaurant names one of the two mills still in place in Montmartre, which was depicted in paintings by Van Gogh and Renoir. Formerly a ballroom, the establishment could have mutated into a tourist trap, but that’s far from the case. The talented Franco-Mauritian chef of Chammaré Montmartre, Antoine Heerah, prevails. When the sun is shining, it’s good to sit under one of the arbours on the patio --- an altogether serene and romantic terrace, framed by greenery and where a cat may stroll between the leaves. At lunch, the menu for €29 is a treat. Mozzarella with Parmesan and rocket sprinkled with olive oil represents a beautiful introduction. Roasted duckling cut in slices, rightly rare, with grenaille potatoes maintains the momentum. A generous far, a typical cake from Brittany filled with prunes, concludes the very satisfying meal.
