My wife and I and another couple were finishing a very expensive three week trip and wanted a reasonably priced place for our last stop, which was Mauritius. La Tonnelle was perfect. The room was large and clean, AC worked fine. The grounds were nice and well maintained. The whole place had a very casual and comfortable atmosphere.

Breakfast was good and each morning they offered to make eggs for us although they weren't normally available because they knew Americans usually wanted that. We stayed in for dinner both nights. The food was interesting, good, and priced right. Everyone sits at one long table and they steer you together based on your language. We sat with people from Hungary, Lebanon, and Sweden who all spoke English.

La Tonnelle is a little tough to find. Our driver had to stop and ask people for help and even when we were close, they weren't sure where it was. I eventually saw an image of a diver and knew there was a dive shop located on the grounds. You need to walk down the street a bit to get to the nice part of the beach.

And as everybody says, Denis and Annveronica (spelling probably wrong,) are the perfect hosts.

We stayed here for 4 nights during our honeymoon and really enjoyed the hospitality provided by Denis, his wife and team.
Rooms are large, clean and maybe a little dated. Conveniently located near the beach and restaurants in Troux aux Biches / is only a bus ride away from Grand Baie.

Would recommend La Tonelle to others staying in Troux aux Biches and would stay here again if in Mauritius.

On a side note, It is worth paying the entrance fee for the Evaco La Plage beach club to use their facilities (lunch is good).

The place is in a beautiful location. One can cross the road and sit by the sea. Very beautiful. The hosts were very friendly and helpful. We had dinner once and it was a huge spread and loved it. The rooms are airy and located in a lovely courtyard.

short summary: the curries which were served were mediocre and very expensive. one can have far better food in the close neighbourhoood for half the prize! for instance: "chez kissen" or "l'assiette du nord", next to Be Cosy Hotel.

Bonjour

La Tonnelle est un Guest house et pas un restaurant...nous ne recevons pas de client extérieur..je pense que vous avez fait erreur sur le nom..merci pour votre correction

La tonnelle Guest house is not a restaurant but a guest house with a guest table only for the guest of the guest house. I think you make a mistake about the name.
Thanks for correction

Guesthouse:
We, a group of 6, have stayed in La Tonnelle for 15 days. The rooms were nicely organised and tidy, the personell very friendly and helpful. Location is great, in the middle of Trou aux Biches, next to a nice sand beach (3min walk). The owner Dennis is very open-minded & kind and one can clearly see he is enjoying to host people. You will notice his passion of being a host when it comes to dinners. Dennis is an awesome chef. Although there is very good restaurants close-by and down the road, we have eaten at the guest house for many occasions and the food always was superb.
Divecenter "Divespirit":
We got a warm welcome when we checked in for Diving with Ajay & Kounal. They are highly experienced Dive Guides and we could enjoy a lot of nice dives with them. There is plenty of nice dive sites reachable by the Divecenter's own boat, even 3 wrecks are in reach of 10-20min by boat. Water condition very easy, rarely any waves. But skipper Bruno anyway was making sure everyone is comfortable on the boat and reaches back to the beach in safety - after another great dive with the guys!
All in all: Go here if you don't want to spend two weeks in the very same ressort. Location and options are great - and so is the Diving Center.

Room Tip: In-house Diving center is excellent
