Next time in Saumur we go again!

Pretty good food, nice fish dishes, relaxed atmosphere, friendly staff and reasonable prices: all this together makes Le Grand Bleu worth a visit next time you visit Saumur. The restaurant was open on Monday night, which makes it an obvious winner if you happen to be in town on Monday night. But no... read more

Varied and well priced menu with friendly staff and good service. Had 2 meals in this restaurant recently and thoroughly enjoyed both of the eating out experiences. Menu at 16 or 17 Euros offers good value for money and enough choice for everyone in our party.

This was our first meal out of Paris and we were not disappointed. A very relaxed, engaging place with absolutely top seafood. We had two nights in Saumur and ate here both nights. It was a bit cool outside so we had a very cosy table inside and really enjoyed ourselves after a rather harrowing drive from Paris (our first... More

The setting is both in town and quiet. The outdoor setting is well maintained and the service is prompt. Our food was very good and no one was disappointed.

Sat outside on a warm late September evening - service was friendly, efficient and very helpful. It was quite busy and so the staff had their work cut out, but maintained high standards. We had oysters and moules mariniere for starters, followed by steak for me and pan fried eel for himself. Oysters and eel superb, steak a little underdone... More

My wife and I had dinner at this restaurant one Saturday evening in September 2014. It gets very busy so try and book as turning up on spec is likely to mean disappointment! The whole experience was quite wonderful, service and food was excellent and along with drinks, the complete event was very good value for money

A truly appalling experience; both for the food and what happened afterwards. The restaurant seemed nice with friendly staff but, unfortunately, the food was not to live up to expectations. My moules were good, but my wife's salmon carpaccio was too-thickly sliced and drowned in lemon. This was followed by an over-cooked sole meunière to the point of being dry,... More

We found this restaurant by chance and so enjoyed the food that we went back the next night. The first time we sat indoors which was very pleasant and the next night outdoors. I had fish which was very fresh and beautifully cooked. It was very popular but we had not booked and managed to get a table both nights.... More
