It is lovely inside. The service was very good and the food was excellent. There was a good range of quality wines at reasonable prices. We will visit again.

Quirky décor, full of character. Food was excellent, service a tad slow but the place was packed and we were one of the last seated, so it is forgivable. I had a delightful meal. The smoked duck, pâté and giblets starter was mouth watering as was the crab. My main was lambs kidneys and sweetbreads, again delightful. The Halibut and... More

We've eaten in quite few places in Montreuil Sur Mer over the years. Le Darnetal is on the main Square and has a lot of oppostion. However whilst I would descibe it as perfectly acceptable we found the food a little dissapointing and it seemed to lack atmosphere.

You are greeted as a long lost friend when you come here which is always a good start. The quirky interior provides endless items to look at after you've solved the 'what to choose' problem on the menu. The food is delicious. I tend to choose fish that I don't see on sale at home and it's always been lovely.... More

Family run,nice menu and home cooked french food. Lunch is only 12 to 2 which is fair enough. Would have liked more space out front as had to eat inside. Food nice. Would go again.

Have eaten there many times. Food excellent. Restaurant full of ornaments. Don't know how they manage to dust. Problem this year as it was closed for holidays even though the town was full of tourists

We have eaten here several times, and our return did not disappoint. Run by a husband (the chef) and wife (front of house) team, Lisa makes you welcome from the moment you enter this little paradise. We started with Kir Royal aperetifs, which at 12 Euros each were excellent value given the enormous glasses they were served in. Excellent choice... More

workmanlike cooking but not haute cuisine. Just opposite the coquempot which offers more style. Friendly service and nice welcome. my smoked salmon was not special, and my kidneys and sweetbreads had more of the former. Restaurant had lots of kitsch around the walls and ceiling.

Well worth the journey, with a genuinely warm welcome, and outstanding traditional French food and service. We have been coming here as a family for some years, and this is easily our favourite restaurant in France. Our youngest daughter absolutely adores the frogs' legs...

10/10 - The restaurant appeared a typical French family run place with lovely decor The staff were so friendly and welcoming and nothing was too much to ask for, for example letting us try wines before we brought them. Wine - we had red saint million 2013, fantastic wine and perfectly complimented our choice of food and was reasonably priced.... More
