We'd left it rather late to eat out and it was gone 21:00 when we passed by Le Grand Bleu. It was brightly lit and welcoming looking so we wandered up to look at the menu. We could see that the restaurant was full and while we were looking at the menu, a waiter popped out and asked us if we wanted a table. If so, we'd only have to wait for about 5 minutes. True to his word, within that time a table had been freed up and relaid and we were seated inside what was a very busy restaurant. The staff were very friendly and soon we were tucking in to a large plate of moules marinieres et frites. They were very tasty but we prefer them being served in a saucepan (like at La Bourse) as they then stay warm longer. From what we could see around us this is very much a restaurant specialising in seafood and it is somewhere we'll certainly try again on a future visit to Saumur. The only downside was that the tables were sited quite close together and it was very difficult not to be disturbed by conversation from neighbouring tables.
