We had a celebration lunch with another couple, and everything was just right - the cooking was excellent and the wines, chosen with some helpful advice, were a perfect match. The staff were courteous and the atmosphere relaxed and pleasant. I'm still dreaming of the pear with caramel and wine sauce.

I am ashamed to say that this was our first visit to Maison Bleue since it changed its name from Mortimer's many years ago. It will now become a regular treat and a definite meeting place for us with those more discerning of our many friends in the bury area and beyond. The four of us in our party thoroughly... More

This is the complete restaurant experience: superb food, a splendid atmosphere, and outstanding service. We went here for my birthday meal as we knew it wouldn't disappoint. "Madame" is charming and welcomed many of the diners personally. I'm surprised that this place hasn't got a Michelin star - it certainly deserves it. Not cheap (especially if you have the A... More

We took advantage of the three course lunch for £24.95. Our food was very good indeed. My starter - stuffed squid - was the highlight of my meal, so flavoursome. Our mains choice was Pollock. One small criticism - froth - not worth the effort and in the category of 'fashion', so absolutely no need at all. The desserts were... More

Maison Bleue never disappoints. The staff are very attentive and nothing is too much trouble. We have been several times and it is one of the best restaurants in Bury.

Everything about this place is wonderful! The food is great. French with a modern twist. A great menu with both a wide choice of fish and meat dishes. A cheese trolley to die for and service which is out of this world. Looking forward to going back very soon!

I have been to Maison Bleue numerous times over the years. It is still my favourite restaurant, my recent visit for Valentines day was possibly the best meal I have had there! £49.50 for the set menu which is top end but so is the food and service.
