Arrived at 7pm we did book as read previous reviews seems a must or you'll miss out. Thank god we did not one spare seat in the place after 8:30pm. Menu is written in French , being Australian my French not too fluent so we slowly worked our way through deciphering best we could. We went for 31€ menu. Waiter... More

This restaurant came highly recommended by a friend. We didn't book but got a table outside. We arrived and ordered at around 8.25pm I think we got our starters about 15 minutes later - delicious - no complaints there. Our kids food arrived just after and again no problem. However I had to go into the restaurant over an hour... More

Having read the reviews on Trip Advisoor we were hoping to enjoy a very good meal. However the food and service were much better than expected. The esgargot entre was superbly cooked, tender and the perfect balance of flavor and texture.The steak and pork again perfectly cooked and seasoned. Fabulous presentation and generous potions. A wide selection of cheeses carefully... More

Went here on a business trip and the food is outstanding. Cooked almost in front of your eyes and very, very tasty. The fish is 'to die for' and prepared superbly so that it melts in your mouth. Not cheap but for the quality it is great value. Good service too!

Myself and two friends took the recommendation from Trip Advisor to try this place for dinner. We were blown away by the quality of the food and the affordability for what we got. We did the 30€ three course meal and found it exceptional. Being from Australia where high quality restaurants cost a lot of money, we couldn't believe the... More

We went there to meet friends who know the owner. It was a really good meal. The food is fresh, nicely cooked and the fish delicious! The owner and his crew are really welcoming. We will definetly come back without our friends and recommand it to eveyone.

On the recommendation of our tour guide today, we found ourselves at Au Martin Bleu for dinner. We were not disappointed! We are coming to the end of a 2 week vacation in France (Paris, Nice, Dijon and Tours), and this was by far the best dinner we have had the entire trip. Tremendously fresh seafood and unique preparations and... More

This is principally a fish restaurant, although my wife's steak was cooked to perfection.We were the only English speakers there-often a good sign. The dishes are well thought out and packed with flavour.There is a Euro 29 menu for 3 courses and our meals (we went twice) averaged just under Euro 90 with a decent bottle of local Chinon wine....

We ate at this restaurant while on our France tour. Since we saw the trip advisor sticker on the window we were comfortable to try it out. The restaurant was small and quaint,. The staff was very helpful in guiding us to choose our selection since the menu was only in French. The food is incredible, very fresh,, and the... More
