Excellent food, and good value for money in a classy establishment (with only minor issues)

We visited Le Grand Bleu on the evening of Saturday 22nd August 2015. We'd been looking around all of the restaurants (!) in Saumur for a restaurant which would meet all of the needs of the family, and had a variety of choices, and wasn't overly expensive. We thought this fitted the bill, and was... read more

Very enjoyable meal, great for fish which we enjoy although the burgers looked fab! We ate outside beside the road but it's fairly quiet so not a problem. Restaurant was busy but staff coped well.

We were in Saumur for the mid summer music festival so it was heaving. We went to this place on the Monday evening when it was quieter but full of locals. We managed a table al fresco and were not dsappointed. Excellent service and we had the Salade Grand Bleu seafood salad which was very good. Service was good and... More

Had intended going to Pot de Lapin here in Saumur but their phone is constantly on answer phone! Thought we'd try Le Grand Bleu - turned out to be a great idea - fantastic food, good atmosphere, friendly staff - would definitely go back. If you want a good evening out give it a go!

What a find, this gem of a restaurant in Saumur, they have a fixed 3 course menu or main menu, we chose the fixed 3 course at 18.50 euros, not to be disappointed with the choices and quality of food. We ate Al Fresco in front of the restaurant in the courtyard. Friendly staff and food all served hot and... More

Good food, if a little pricey compared with other restaurants in Saumur. We opted to have our lunch outside next to the road, which was quiet. When a truck came down the road, the manager rushed out to close the parasols, so they didn’t get fouled by the truck. In so doing, he closed one of the parasols around my... More

We unfortunately went into Saumur when shops were shut but by luck found this delightful restaurant. The food was delicious and plentiful and we decided to go back another day to finish our holiday but unfortunately we picked a day when they were closed. We will come back!

On this year's holiday we only went to this fish restaurant once and had huge bowls of mussels. A bit too many for me but no complaints. Nice bottle of chilled wine .

This has to be one of the best seafood restaurants I have ever eaten in. The menu is expansive with 8 or 10 choices in each section, plus a number of set menus available. My companions and I had moules mariniere, pate au lapin, mackeral and a charcuterie platter to start. Very nicely cooked and presented – but the portion... More
