Great staff, they were really nice helping us with the menu and such, my French is sadly not very good, but they translated most of it for us.
The food was good, and there was a large dessert buffet which was cheap, and oh so...good... The drinks was free with the food and included wine, beer, cider and soft drinks. If we ever come by the area again, we will definitely revisit.More
We were staying at the B and B Maurepas and were looking for somewhere to eat when we stumbled on this restaurant. We were not disappointed! The steak was cooked perfectly and the staff were friendly and helpful, in spite of our limited French vocabulary....The drinks are included in the price of the meal, making this truly excellent value. On our second visit we also had the dessert buffet, where all the home made pastries were sublime and the cheeseboard was excellent. We would definitely return when we next visit Maurepas.More
I visited La Tonnelle on the recommendation of the receptionist at the hotel when I stayed at the Ibis hotel in Trappes, France
La Tonnelle was, at the time of my visit, a very lively and vibrant establishment with a relaxed friendly atmosphere with well...trained service staff.
The restaurant offers mainly chicken and steak dishes but, the small menu means they can concentrate on providing good food at a reasonable price. The added bonus of eating at La Tonnelle is that all drinks are included in the price of the meal. This means with choices of soft drinks, beers, there's also wines, so you just help yourself to your selection and refill your glass as many times as you wish or, as long as you can stand if you are drinking the alcoholic selection.
There is also an extensive desert selection as is shown in the photograph. If you would like something or just wish to sample something new, just choose. Again, you can return to the desert area to refill your plate as many times as you wish. I can thoroughly recommend the chocolate cake and chocolate mousse which is the lightest and fluffiest mousse I have tasted.
Finally, there is another bonus of dining at La Tonnelle. There is a 10% discount from the entire bill by indicating that you are a guest staying at the Ibis hotel. There is no added supplement for a party of six or more, no compulsory surcharge for a service charge and tips are discretionary.
This is a wheelchair friendly and disabled accessible establishment, with slight ramps to enable the physically impaired easy access to the slightly different sitting and eating areas. The table layout means you are not cramped and whilst lighting is soft, it remains adequate.
All in all I would recommend this for all ages and all occasions.More
Formula restaurant in a suburban retail park, you get to choose a set meal with self-service drinks (sodas, wine and beer) to which you can add the all you can eat dessert buffet for a few euros extra.
Meals are hearty and plentiful and good...value for money if you want to take a couple of drinks.
Once I was served the wrong dish due to a misunderstanding with the waitress but it was replaced without any quibbles, and the manager came over to apologise. So good customer service.
But haute cuisine it ain'tMore
