We returned to Montreuil after a gap of nearly a year, to celebrate a family birthday. We enjoyed a wonderful meal, with a warm welcome, good wine, and excellent service. There really isn't much more to add! We made varying choices: my daughter in law and I enjoyed the langoustines in orange sauce, and I found my steak some of... More

We have had a holiday home in Attin, just outside Montreuil Sur Mer for almost a year now. Since then, we have eaten in various restaurants in the town. Over the New Year period, most restaurants were closed and we found this one by sheer chance. What a find!! Cannot believe we have been there for almost a year and... More

Tucked away in the old town ( Ville Haute ) of Montreuil sur -Mer this restaurant provides all that one would hope for from a traditional, family run, provincial French restaurant. We did not have a booking, but were so lucky that when we arrived, there had just been a cancellation. We were seated at a nice, large table near... More

France is famous for its many little restaurants everywhere, and this is one of the best. Sublime food, good wine and very good service, all at a very reasonable price (about 100€ for 2). Montreuil-sur-mer, the home of the Wine society in France, is only 45 miles or so from Calais - almost worth a day trip just for Le... More

I'm surprised that this restaurant occupies the #1 slot on Trippy, as it was nowhere close to the experience we enjoyed at other restaurants in Montreuil. It's got a confused ambience, with a few hundred baseball caps dangling from the ceiling as though it was an American sports bar, but then it had the dark furniture and décor of a... More

We visited this restaurant this week upon the recommendation of our hosts in a local chambres d'hôte. I had booked one week in advance a table for two and was disappointed to find that the only table available was next to the kitchen door. There were other guests from our accommodation who had booked their table only two hours previously... More

We had a delicious Sunday lunch in this charming restaurant in the centre of this attractive village. The owners are very friendly and welcoming, the waiter's service efficient and polite and the decor quirky but charming and interesting. We particularly enjoyed the Gratin de Crabe et de Crevettes starter and also the Pavé de Bar fish main-course.

We visit Montreuil regularly at this time of the year and have often eaten in Le Darnetal. We have never been disappointed. It is a small restaurant in a traditional (and characterful) building which always serves excellent food. In particular, the langustines and the fillet steak with two sauces were phenomenally good. The wine list is not long, but perfectly... More

Usually my family takes a day trip to Calais before Christmas for a bit of shopping and usually the meal is disappointing. Not this time! The husband is the chef and his wife is front of house with a smart young man assisting at table. Our terrible French was ignored and the lady made us feel extremely welcome. In our... More
