Actually, believe the good words about this restaurant and ignore the bad ones. This is exactly the kind of restaurant you want if you're looking for a good French meal perfectly cooked. I cannot think of a single thing that i would change about the place. All the 'clutter' is mainly to do with the owner's obsession with le rugby, but there are loads of other things: old radios, old postcards, pictures, lamps — well, you get the idea. Madam is wonderful: she speaks perfect English, but she's also willing to tolerate our fractured French. We had fish and more fish, nice wine and the prices were very reasonable, even though we didn't take the cheapest set meal. One thing I cannot stress enough is to get a reservation, at least on the day. We stopped by just after lunch service to reserve, got seated in a nice part of the room at the time we had booked, and saw a steady stream of people being turned away (this on a Wednesday, off season!) while we ate our lovely fish.

When we arrived madam asked if we had a reservetion, which we did'nt. Luckily she accomodated us on a table by the window. The place rapidly filled with customers they seemed to know and all evening a steady trickle of people who were turned away.
I can see why, the service was leisurely and very friendly. The set menu's were interesting and food really good.
There is plenty of things to keep you distracted while you wait for your food, the place resembles a collectors fair with every surface and wall covered with knick nacks, pictures and posters!

Other reviewers have been distracted by the decor, but Mrs Muttonen and I like places like this.The staff were outstanding, the food even more so. Each course was prepared with imagination and absolutely delicious. We'd quite fancied a pizza for our last meal before heading back to London next day, having been underwhelmed by the French restaurants we'd visited in the previous few weeks.But the local pizzeria (which had good reviews) was closed - no discernible logic to such arrangements, which are quirky rather than deeply annoying - so Le Darnetal was chosen more or less at random and because it was one of the few places open midweek, and our experience there restored our faith in French cuisine.

The best place to eat in Montreuil. Mid week they have a special menu which changes every week, and the normal menu is truly french
