“Fabulous Meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2013

We were returning to this wonderful restaurant after a couple of years and received a very warm welcome from Lisa and Jean Paul. The service was excellent and we were made to feel at home and the food was as wonderful as I remembered!! The only hard bit was choosing what to eat!! Thank you and look forward to returning soon

“An enjoyable return”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2013

This was our 4th visit to Le Darnetal, with a gap of a few years since the last one, so we were hoping it would be just as good . We weren't disappointed. The menu choice was good, we all found something that appealed on both set menus . All courses were served promptly but not rushed and were impeccably cooked as always . The friendly atmosphere just adds to the experience. The final bill was fair for what we had consumed. Looking forward to returning here again .

“Birthday Lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 5, 2013

The visit to Montreuil and the lunch was a birthday celebration for both our daughter and her boyfriend. We chose Le Darnetal from the list of restaurants on the site and booked the night before by e-mail. On arrival we were given a warm and friendly welcome. We enjoyed the cosy, traditional interior and the pleasant service. We each enjoyed a really delicious meal and celebrated our day of birthdays! I'm sure we will visit again. Many thanks for a memorable visit!

“A genuine experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2013

Firstly the prices shown are the price you pay. All taxes and service are included, so the final bill does not come as a surprise. The food was good and the owners were happy to let us pick from the set menu for a starter and eat from the a la carte for the main meal. The final cost was more than fair. The service was attentive but not over the top, and the young waiter was a delight.. It was lovely to see a higher percentage of locals than Brits. Would I reccomend this restaurant, indeed I would.

“Better than appeared from outside”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2013

The restaurant we had in mind in Montreuil was closed, so we had to look elsewhere. With a veggie to please, it can be tricky in France. This place appeared very traditional, and sample menu outside was very 'meaty' . Popping through the door to ask got a lovely welcome and explanation of the few veggie choices. So pleased we went in, as the service, food and wine were all excellent and great value to boot. Goats cheese salad as a veggie starter is fairly standard, but well executed here with a fun raspberry vinaigrette - a lovely omelette with sauté potatoes was great too. Fishy choices for the meat eater were excellent, both taste and presentation. Desert for one was outstanding, and a coffee and Cognac for me just hit the spot. Bottle of Bourgoigne was fab and a decent price. Decor a bit busy with flags and hats abound, just made quite characterful though! Must recommend this place.
