Beautiful little busy restaurant.

Chandliers and outdoor lights make this festive and fum place to eat. Great service. Prix fixe meals delicious. Mussels are the appetizer of choice, as they were served at nearly every table. Deserts put of this world. Wines local and all excellent. A wise choice for great dinner.

Located in the "old" part of Saumur this is a great location. The food from the standard €18.80 menu was excellent and well presented. The service was a bit slow but very attentive - ideal for a leisurely lunch. The waitress spoke English when she needed to but didn't insult my schoolboy French by reverting to English prematurely.

This is a popular restaurant. It looks great, good ambience, nice location and appears to have it all. And their speciality is seafood. So, we ordered one course (one scallops and one sea bass) and waited, with a half bottle of wine. My complaints are: very poor service, average quality food and no one accepting responsibility for that. We waited... More

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.

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.

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
