Old-fashioned rustic excellence We were booked elsewhere in the town but a peer through the window and a look at the menu suggested that this might be one of those “bits of old France” that are so hard to find these days, so we cancelled the other and rebooked here. We were the first diners to arrive and were greeted... More

Once been once to this restaurant but will go again. the food was excellent and the service was such to accomodate casual dining. The wine list also had some very good selections on it.

For years we tried to get into the Darnatal, back in the early nineties when it competed only with the Chateau and La Grenouillere, two restaurants whose menus were beyond our pockets. Now, with more competition in Montreuil, which has become a gastronomic heaven, at last we were able to get in - and it was worth the wait. What... More

Wow, what an incredible meal !!! We dined here with friends on our annual trip to soak up the culture Montreuil has to offer (an excuse to visit the Wine Society and stock up !) . Montreuil is a lovely little town and is blessed with several very good restaurants. We hadn't eaten at La Darnetal previously but very much... More

Have been to Montrieul annually for the last 5 years and have visited several restaurants at this time of year. All have been good or better with The Patio and now Le Darnetal being the best so far. Quite atmospheric and cosy with a certain charm. Very friendly staff who were very helpful in explaining the menu and wines. Croze... More

Since the Atelier 26 has been taken over, we were looking for somewhere else to try nearby so gave the Darnetal a try. It was every bit as good as expected. Excellent set menu for lunch and very good value. The langoustine starters were fresh and delicious. I loved the cheese course before dessert and can recommend any of the... More

We visit Montreuil at least once a year and always stop for lunch after buying wine at the excellent Wine Society outlet in the town. Having tried several restaurants over the years, we discovered le Darnetal some 3/4 years ago - we now go nowhere else. The food is good, the wine list just right and the ambience perfect -... More

We have tried several restaurants in Montreuil over the years but this is the best. A warm welcome, an imaginative and well priced menu and excellent cooking - I can still savour the blend of mushrooms and spinach that lay beneath a generous piece of sea bass. One of our friends raved over his oysters and his beef - rare... More
