Now, you may take a look at Le Grand Bleu and think that it is another one of those snooty french tourist traps serving luke warm food and giving you that look that by having lunch there, you're getting in their way. Not this place. We'd just driven down from Normandy and were looking for somewhere to have lunch with... More

The restaurant was full by 7.30pm which by French standards is very early to eat. It was therefore no surprise to find that the majority of our fellow diners were also tourists (mainly Americans from what we could easily hear). The staff speak excellent English but seemed happy to let us try some French (at least we tried). The food... More

Great fresh fish, fantastic attentive and friendly service. Best mussels ever. We went on a Saturday during the market - nice to sit on the terrace and watch the hussle and bussle.

We stayed in Saumur on a Friday night on our way to the Dordogne and during a walk around the town found this restaurant. At the time we couldn't book a table so returned at 7:30 and managed to have one of the few remaining unreserved tables. The service was warm and friendly throughout and the food was very good....

Having heard good things about this place, we headed over one lunchtime while in the area. There were a number of spare tables inside so we were not disappointed. The food was lovely, I had the mussels in curry sauce which were delicious. Kids had the ubiquitous steak burger and chips. The bill came as a pleasant surprise, as the... More

We struggled to find somewhere good to eat in Saumur, until we discovered Le Grand Bleu. We liked it so much we went back 2 days later. The menu at 18.50 Euros is excellent, especially the generous mussels starter. The restaurant is popular, so turn up promptly at 7:00 if you want to get a table. The only difficulty is... More

We stumbled across Le Grand Bleu looking for somewhere that looked good and inviting for an evening meal. Within 30 minutes of making our booking, having had a cold beer elsewhere, we were seated. We were not disappointed as the food was excellent in what was to become a very busy restaurant. There was a choice of good value set... More

We enjoyed our seafood dinner in a pleasant outdoor setting in the centre of Saumur. The restaurant was quite busy but the service was friendly and efficient.
