Moulin – San Clemente – March 2019 – Opening Soon


Moulin’s third bistro will open at the historic Casino San Clemente (120 W Avenida Pico). Built in 1937, this seaside landmark has long been a gathering place for celebration and revelry, serving as a beacon for San Clemente, drawing in Hollywood starlets and travelers from around the world. Within walking distance to San Clemente’s popular North Beach, much of Moulin’s menu will be available to-go, modeled after cafes along coastal France.

Much like Casino San Clemente, Vrignaud created Moulin as a central gathering place — a place for friends to enjoy a cup of coffee together in the morning or for a budding romance to bloom over a bottle of champagne in the early afternoon. Delivering its signature all-encompassing French experience, Moulin San Clemente will be filled with the sights, sounds, smells, tastes, and touch of Paris.


The 1500 sq. ft. bistro faces San Clemente’s North Beach; its ocean-view patio will offer vintage bistro tables and chairs shaded by Moulin’s signature red umbrellas. Inside will be filled with the original metal plaques, light fixtures, and framed French art – all collected by Laurent from France — which have become synonymous with the Moulin brand.


Moulin San Clemente will serve the classic dishes of France including bistro favorites like Croque Madame, omelets, and Eggs Benedict; its patisserie will glisten with iconic pastries such as the St. Honoré and Tart Tatin, as well as house-baked bread and classic viennoiserie.

Moulin San Clemente is located within the historic Casino San Clemente (120 W Avenida Pico, San Clemente, CA 92672) and offers 1200 sq. ft. of indoor seating and a 300 sq. ft. ocean-view patio. The 60-seat restaurant will be open daily from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. For more information, please visit: or connect with @moulin on Instagram for behind-the-scenes updates.
