The food was good but not as good as in some others. It was quite annoying that we arrived at 7:00 pm and were only done with 3 courses at 11:00. There were only 2 waiters for 13 tables. So it was understandable that they...More

This restaurant is extraordinary. Small and elegant, with friendly relaxed staff and extraordinary food from a small but well constructed menu. We had a diabetic kosher guest in our group and the staff were really accommodating. Lovely treats between courses too.

If you have the time you must visit this restorant. The service is as good as the food and the food is great. They have from 3 to 8 dishes to select from, but I recommend to go for all 8.

My husband and I stopped at Dartel for lunch. After we were seated and ordered water we realized that they have a set menu for lunch which did not appeal to us. The chef made us both special lunches which were incredibly delicious. The presentation...More
