We ate dinner here (and stayed the night), having had lunch here two or three times before. Le Darnetal is a curious place, which on the face of it is a quite traditional French restaurant but seems to have an irresistible attraction for English diners. So far as we could see everyone else there was English, and it was pretty... More

This is a very popular and busy restaurant, several people had to be turned away on the Saturday evening that we ate there. Food was first class classic French style, service was excellent, and a faulty bottle of wine was replaced immediately without any fuss.

Very welcoming, the food was great, well presented and delicious. Staff very helpful and professional. We were a group of six and we all had a very pleasant meal in very convivial surroundings. Would go again and would thoroughly recommend.

We were welcomed for dinner with our 8 month old daughter and made to feel at home in an instant. We had frogs legs with garlic and prawns flambéd in whisky both were delicious. For main we shared the beef steak which was perfectly cooked. The cheese plate was the perfect end to the meal. I would thoroughly recommend a... More

Had seen the menu through the window on a previous visit and thought must try this one. fortunately we had booked, surprised on a chill early December evening just how busy they were. Service was relaxed which is good news if you want a relaxing dinner, so leisurely glass of kir and the menu still looked great. My wife went... More

I think this is the third year we have eaten at Le Darnetal. This year we ate here on two consecutive nights. The menu & quality of food is always very good. Although I don't recall any menu changes, there is a constantly good selection to choose from on the set menus.

Visited about 15 years ago and did not find it welcoming. Return visit this year and found a total transformation. Madame was welcoming although still slightly reluctant to speak English which she speaks perfectly. Rather like having a meal in someone's front room. Food the best we have ever had in France and excellent menue. Wished we had not visited... More

Having read all the wonderful reviews for the Darnetal we decided that we must have dinner there on our last Montreuil stopover. On the plus side the staff were all really nice, and very friendly - but the food was a little disappointing. I ordered the crab and prawn gratin, and when it eventually arrived it was "ok", but... There... More

We had an excellent meal here. This is a small traditional restaurant, Madame is in charge front of house whilst Monsieur is the chef. Good traditional French cooking, superbly prepared, cooked and well presented. Good wine list and friendly efficient service.

This is a charming restaurant in an attractive square, though you would be well advised to book. This was our second visit and it was full. The menu is excellent with proper French cooking, escargots and rognons de veaux, which we don't see in England and sadly, you see less and less in France. We had a very enjoyable evening... More
