In late December 2008 Catherine and Gérard Bossé closed their famous restaurant, Les Tonnelles on the enchanting island of Béhuard, and reopened at the end of January 2009 in Angers – just a short walk from the station. The dining room is modern with some Japanese touches. The cooking remains as good. Gérard is a master with fish – he is a former pupil of Jacky Dallais (La Promenade in Petit-Pressigny southeast of Tours). There is a deliberate policy of having a restricted number of dishes to concentrate on what is really good. Well chosen wine list with a number of wines available by the glass.

Useful information: Menu: from €49; lunch €29. Unusually closed all day Saturday and Sunday but open all day Monday – Friday.
