This is a modest looking restaurant, and not expensive, but quite authentic. The chef is French and his wife is a California girl. We both had the nightly fish special and loved the balance of flavors on the plate. The wine list is very well...More

Given the reviews, I was expecting more. We had dinner here and were happy in general. The Jamón Serrano was pretty good. My dish, which was the special seafood crepe, was also good. I’m not sure how authentic the crepes are though; they were quite...More

My husband and I are visiting the Monterey area. We wanted to dine at a local, non-touristy place. We definitely found that at Bistro Moulin! It felt like we were in a small cafe in Paris. Absolutely lovely! Shortly after sitting down, a small plate...More

Yes, it serves tiramisu and small tartlets. I don't remember anything else. Try calling the restaurant. You definitely need advance reservations, as the restaurant is quite small. We have enjoyed this small gem twice.
