Fabulous Food and Great Value for Money

We found this restaurant by happy accident and took advantage of the warm summer evening to sit outside. The food was delicious and I would have given the restaurant 5 starts but the service was very slow - don't go there if you're in a hurry. This wouldn't stop us going again, however.

Visited here on a Monday evening, and the restaurant was quite full. We had a couple of aperitifs of the local sparking wine (excellent), and then had decent starters of mussels in a light curry sauce and cured mackerel - both excellent. We did have to wait quite a while, and also had to ask for the bottle of red... More

Known for its seafood, Le Grand Bleu made every dinner a delight. My wife and I kept coming back to discover something new and wonderful. Exceptionally friendly staff, impeccable, clean, comfortable interiors with attention to detail... They open a little earlier than most restaurants. Excellent pricing and nice wines. We discovered our favorite Saumur Brut there.

Stayed near Saumur over this Easter and found the restaurant whilst walking the town centre. The menu looked good so had lunch. What a bit of luck as the food was excellent. My wife is a sea food addict and had the gambas cooked in cream and whiskey which she said was delicious. As a non seafood eater I had... More

Very pleasant sea food restaurant in Saumur, the white town in the Loire Valley of France. On a cold, wet and quiet Sunday evening the moules et frites and salad of warm chevres toasts were exceptionally tasty. Our waitress was very attentive and friendly. The price of food and drink was very reasonable.

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 doubt it is the better alternative to... 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.
