We ate the lobster menu. It was simply exceptional in "savoir-faire," surprise in the blending of tastes and in the overall "togetherness" of the entire menu. We went the same week to a famous 3-star in Chagny, but there was no doubt in our mind about which restaurant deserved the 3 stars: it was clearly the Moulin-a-Huile. Without a doubt, we will be back. The enthusiasm of the review matches our enthusiasm about the food.

The place is along the river, and doesn't offer much parking, so you end up about 300 meters away on the town's parking. The lady of the house is very nice, but takes it very easy in serving just anything. 20 minutes for the Champagne, an hour for the first dish, and basically 2 1/2 we got our main dish. Thenfood is indeed as most reviews indicate fantastic! Definitely worth a star or more. But the service is so slow that it just takes down the whole experience. The real mixed feelings came with the winelist! Basically times 4 are the prices. Ridiculous. We stopped drinking a second wine as we just felt ripped off... Regrettable many mixed feelings with this potentially very good restaurant. Lower prices on the wine, an extra person/sommelier for the service and this place is way up there. Won't go back until then... Which may be never.

In an idyllic situation, on the edge of the river, at the foot of a cliff, under beautiful trees, we ate the best meal of our holiday in Provence here. My husband had the best ris de veau he has ever tasted, with lobster as a starter (it's the season for 'homard bleu') and my rouget 'en nage d'orange' and main course sole were both cooked to perfection with the component part of each dish wonderfully distinguishable, while forming a coherent whole in each case. The presentation of the food was beautiful. It was a totally delicious experience from start to finish, and the imaginative desert of red fruits with an infusion of thyme and rosemary was inspired in all senses of the word. Madame Bardot was completely charming and very attentive without being at all intrusive. The wine list was excellent too, very comprehensive, with a lot of local wines as well as a fabulous choice of Burgundy and Bordeaux. This is a treat meal, so don't expect to get cut-rate prices! That would be an insult to the chef who deserves all the praise he has received from the various French restaurant guides..

We shall not forget the experience of dining at this restaurant, it was one of the highlights of our two week stay in Provence.
Yes, it is very much old school but everything from start to finish was just perfect and chef Robert Bardot has lost none of his great culinary magic and his delightful wife is so accommodating and makes you feel very special, service is what you expect from a top class restaurant.
The food is fresh and vibrant and superbly presented with some highly imaginative dishes on a well constructed menu. The fish dishes are particularly good and everything looks a picture on the plate. Our meal actually consisted of 'five' courses and there was nothing of note to fault with
a stunning strawberry desert, presented in dramatic style, lasting long in the memory.
Sitting on the terrace made the occasion all the more special and with a wine list you will never tire of looking at we will look back on the evening with fond memories.
Dining here is not cheap but I would say that given the experience we enjoyed and the overall
high standard of the food and service we enjoyed it was worth it. The food is not over-priced for this type of restaurant and we have spent almost as much in other French restaurants and left disappointed, which we were certainly not here.
We also stayed the night and the accommodation was quirky and extremely comfortable and the
breakfast a banquet to savour.
It was in all one of the highlights of our holiday.
