Superlative

This restaurant had been recommended to me by my French Prof. I am so pleased that I heeded his advice. The food is divine and the service second to none. Couldn't have been more impressed. Will definitely go again.

A visit to Maison Bleue always feels special. The service is outstanding. The food is delicious. A very stylish and classic French restaurant in our lovely town. I highly recommend a visit. Yes, the fish/seafood is always superb but it's not just a 'fish' restaurant. Last time we visited I had duck for my main. Such a treat. Always such... More

Owner's daughter and front of house lady was extremely rude, obnoxious and a genuinely horrible person! If you want to be talked too like a second-class citizen this is the place for you! A very poor start to a meal, where the staff care nothing for their customers or indeed the standard of their food! Under cooked meat, slap dash... More

This was our first visit to Maison Bleue and I wish we had dined there before now. From the moment you set foot through the door, until you depart the staff are very attentive, professional and knowledgable about the food and wine. I compared the food we had to something that you expect to be served by during the final... More

This was our first time here (no spoilt dog - this is not the place for him!). We took our son for his birthday last weekend. What a gem. The food and service sublime, wonderful, gold star. If you like seafood this is the place (meat and vegetrain option available). This has to be the best restaurant in East Anglia.... More

Now this is excellent, just called in for lunch. Food that you would expect, fantastic dining experience with exceptional staff. To spend time at lunch, why not enjoy! So if you visit Bury St Edmunds give it a look :-)

Second time we have eaten here, second time it has been amazing. The food was gorgeous, my raviolo was exquisite, the steak and sauces for the main were incredible, I tasted another couple of mains which were also beautiful, the cheese board is divine, the wine list is extensive and full of quality and the service is michelin star, this...

We just weren't prepared for the excellent lunch we ate. Bury St Edmunds is a favourite market town of ours, we visit frequently. The morning market kept us busy. A friend had suggested we tried the restaurant for lunch. We did, and couldn't have been better pleased. The food was delicious, couldn't fault it at all. We think it's a... More

Maison Bleu is an experience that everyone should try. The food is truly excellent, the atmosphere superb and the service could not be bettered anywhere. We went there for my wife's birthday and it is one she will remember for a long long time!
