The three course 18.50 Euro is well worth the price. My wife and I had excellent mussels in wine sauce for an appitizer and poached Salmon for a entree that was the best tasting fish we have ever had. The meal was completed with an ice crime dessert. Service was prompt and very attentive. We definately would recommend this restaurant.

Good friendly service and nice atmosphere dining outside. Good selection of fish and plenty of alternatives if you aren't keen on fish.

We had the seared mackeral as our starter, which was wonderful with perfect crispy skin. Our main was sea bass, again perfectly cooked. Picking from the main nenu is pricey but worth every centime

Went here tonight to book a table for the next couple of days but was able to get a table straight away. This Resturant is very well presented and the staff very attentive. We both ordered from one of the 2 set menus as they included what we would have ordered from the full menu. The portion sizes were adequate... More

Walking down from the castle in Saumur, we noticed Le Grand Bleu, close to the main square. The menu stood out because it featured fish. We made a reservation for that night, only outside was available, and came back at 7PM. Every dish the four of us had, from starters to entree to dessert, was terrific. At one point, a... More

Really enjoyed food, service, atmosphere - actually everything about Le Grand Bleu. Our first time in Saumur and we were so pleased to find such an excellent restaurant open on Sunday and Monday evening. It must be good as it was so popular both evenings - customers very cosmopolitan. Staff very prompt, friendly and polite - especially when we insisted... More

We always have a good meal here and the moules frites are always well cooked with generous portions. Service is efficient and friendly. Only downside was the number of wasps as we were eating outside ~ perhaps an inside table would be a better bet!

We chose this place at 1850 after wandering around Saumur "just looking". We made a booking there and then for 1900 (opening time). We got a prime table and sat down for an excellent meal at a reasonable price. It is obviously very popular as the place was full within the hour. The two young waitresses seemed to keep on... More

Terrific restaurant. Nice ambiance with wonderful food at reasonable prices. We loved this place so much that we came back the next night. Favorites include the fisherman's soup, mussels in bleu cheese sauce, salmon in butter sauce, and rice pudding. They seemed to be understaffed, so the service was not great. But everything else was terrific.

Thank miandho
