“Great Relaxed meal”
Reviewed February 21, 2012

We ate here at the weekend and had a very nice relaxed meal with friends. The quality of the food is excellent and the oysters on the €38 set menu were outstanding. Two of us had the $38 menu and two the €28 menu and they were both of excellent quality, good choice of wines. This is a great restaurant and should be on your list of places to eat whenever you are in Montreuil sur Mer.

“once discovered always to be remembered”
Reviewed December 18, 2011

Le Darnetal is a block on from the main square but it is well worth seeking out. No big signs or chalk boards just a plainish white building. But once discovered always to be remembered. Inside it has a warm and cosy feeling matched by pleasant unhurried service.As an ex rugby player I must admit my appreciation was elevated by the many rugby caps and pennants over the bar but discreetely done in keeping with the eclectic nature of the decoration. There's a choice of menus and prices which we enjoyed. So walk on by the main square and discover Le Darnetal for yourself.

“Fabulous as usual”
Reviewed December 9, 2011

I visit Montreuil sur mer on average twice a year typically for a couple of nights and I always aim to have dinner at Le Darnetal on one of the evenings when I'm in town. It is consistently highly enjoyable, and I dined there earlier this month (December 2011). The food is delicious, there is a decent wine list, the service is always a cut above, all in a relaxed and comfortable setting. Jean Paul is a fab cook as well as being a true gentleman and his wife Lisa is always extremely charming. There is a selection of menus to choose from as well as a la carte - and for me personally I just adore the Chateaubriand! Just go!

“Un palais pour les gourmets.”
Reviewed November 26, 2011

This was our third or fourth visit to Le Darnetal - the other visits were some years previously. We were delighted that the standards were, if anything, even better than we recalled - though the decor seems to have acquired a few more pieces of bric-a-brac. The oysters in champagne were pure nectar - and the turbot could have been served at Versailles to the most discerning of the Kings of France without qualm. An excellent and carefully chosen selection of wines - Madame didn't blink for more than a split second when we requested a red to be served with the fish [ simply because by preference we only serve white wines with dessert at home ]. A must for all who appreciate fine French cuisine.

“Excellent Local Food”
Reviewed October 10, 2011

Excellent value set lunch at €16 for 2 courses or €21 for 3. Menu included fish soup with rouille and croutons or oeufs en coccotte to start and red mullet with fennel or skate wings. Book if you want to be sure of a table, especially at weekends.
