We have been visiting Le Darnetal over the last 20 years (and sadly never thought to write it up for Trip Advisor before) and have never been disappointed with either the food or the service. I rarely rate anywhere as excellent but here it is deserved. It is all a French family-run restaurant should be, and more. We always book ahead, and Madame politely copes with our painful French. There is always a warm welcome, and in winter warm is the operative word. This is an eclectically decorated haven from the cold on a blustery winter's day as was the case when we visited last week. Jean-Paul never fails to provide good food excellently cooked at a fair price and although the wine list is limited it suits the food and the establishment. It is a good, friendly, place to eat, patronised by the locals in a small town that, although touristy, rises above its visitors. We have never been rushed here and Madam is always happy to talk. Our only worry is that in a recent conversation the 'retirement' word came up. Proprietors may move on, but rare places like Le Darnetal should go on forever!
