We've visited La Tonnellerie 3 times now at various times of the year and sat inside and outside and we've never been disappointed. Great hosts, fabulous food and a concise selection of wines from both the local area and further afield. Will definitely return, it's a firm family favourite

We eat out every Sunday at different restaurants and by comparison with many other restaurants, this was not value for money - very overpriced in our opinion.

This is a very local and was our favourite restaurant fpr special occasions. But the quality varies, some times its great and others it's aweful. So much so we can't go just in case we get another bad experience.

Having been driving round, visiting Angeloumes and Saint Simon, and not having found anywhere to eat, we resorted to Google Maps 'Find me a restaurant' feature and it came up with this place.

What a wonderful place to stay and eat, outstanding service, beautiful setting and such comfortable rooms, immaculately clean. Great welcome by a delightful English family we were made to feel so at home. Wish we could have stayed longer. Will definitely return to this area.
