Outstanding!

I've known Maison Bleue for many years now, and the standard has always been high, but following a recent visit (after a long gap) I'm delighted to say that the food there is now as good as I've eaten anywhere. Truly outstanding! And combined with charming, attentive service I cannot... read more

This restaurant is absolutely out of this world. People say that perfection is impossible to reach. Well this restaurant is close. From the moment we arrived we were greeted with smiles and very professionaly. The front of house team led by Mrs Canevet certainly know what to do. Well mannered, attentive and an eye for detail made us feel ever... More

We had lunch for two. I would say the service was perfect- friendly, not over bearing, quick, but not rushed. Proof of this was that we managed two courses plus amuse bouche, in 50 minutes without ever feeling rushed. To start we were given a surprise appetizer, which was lovely. I had the fixed priced menu with tuna raw sushi... More

It wasnt, if anything it was more of a let down. So lets start with the service, couldnt exactly call it friendly and welcoming I must say, staff were a... More

I have a passion for good food. I've eaten at top restaurants in France such as Le Poison D'or, Macon and L'oubliette, Rochecorbon near Tours. Maison Bleue is certainly in the same league. The restaurant menu offers a varied choice and special attention is given to flavour and presentation. The set menu is excellent value. A visit to the Maison... More

I was so looking forward to my lunch with a friend. We had lots to catch up on and as we both love fish and read much about this restaurant, we thought we would try it. We were the first to arrive for lunch and as we had not booked we were shown to the back of the restaurant. The... More

Four of us went for a midweek lunch and it was the first time for all of us. As we were to travel for about an hour and a half, we were hoping it was going to be something special. We were not disappointed. From the moment we entered the building, the service was impeccable. The staff were very well... More

The food was absolutely superb as was the wine. The service from everyone was perfect and very friendly. The whole meal was excellent and amazing value for money. I don't usually give anything 5 stars but I couldn't find a fault.

We rarely write on trip advisor, but felt compelled to do so having had one of the best evenings there on Tuesday. From the moment we arrived the staff couldn't have done more; we felt incredibly spoilt as were served a dinner that deserves Michelin status. The chef's need to be applauded because they have 'upped the anti' yet again... More

We visited Maison Bleue to celebrate my husband's birthday and we could not fault the service at all. Everyone was polite, friendly and helpful. The meal was delicious and very tasty. A lovely setting for a special occasion.
