Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

My wife and I went for lunch on Tuesday 31st October. It is a favourite restaurant that we have been to many times especially for the sea food which is the main specialty. To check that it was open I searched on line both the...search tool and restaurant’s own web site said that it was open for lunch on that day. When we got there the restaurant was closed. There was no explanation on the door. In fact the opening hours were not displayed at all. This is not about the food. It’s about a shabby, disrespectful way to treat customers. There is no excuse. It is a simple matter to have a professionally designed web site within which there is an element that could be altered by the business themselves as needed. EG temporary or seasonal changes to opening hours.More

A mixed review! We wanted a seafood restaurant in Saumur and found Le Grand Bleu. Food overall was ok though the lobster was definitely small and lacking meat! Main reason for writing this review was because the service was so poor. We ate there at...8pm and no one was really interested in servicing us. All they seemed intent on was closing up! We asked for things but they never arrived! This was supposed to be a special dinner on our holiday and we left feeling extremely disappointed and upset! We paid the bill but no way were we going to tip for this experience! Oh well!!More

The worst food experience I had in an entire week in Saumur. Went with my family for dinner one night. We were sitting for at least 20 minutes before we could place a drinks order. There were seven of us, and the place wasn’t busy...when we got there. The food was good, but wildly overpriced, terrible service, and not worth the place it stands.More

Please note, that reservations are not compulsory here - advisable certainly, but we got lucky and found a table just as they were opening. Service very professional and friendly - food excellent throughout and reasonably priced too. We were a bit surprised at the lack...of restaurant choice in the centre - many steak and burger-type places - so we were very pleased indeed to have found Le Grand Bleu. Will certainly be back when we are nexxt in town and recommend to others.More

Under new ownership, food was mediocre, ,service unfriendly verging on rude. Tables were being cleared and stacked away while clients were still eating at other tables. Staff seemed to be in a hurry to get home!

Food was good, but there are so many better restaurants In Saumur. I did like the focus on seafood as so much of this region is meat-focused. Service was pleasant. Prices a bit high for the quality.

Excellent food, service and conviviality. Seafood very fresh and as good as we get at home in Jersey! High praise indeed! Reasonably priced local wines with a good selection. Very pleasant and friendly staff with an emphasis on efficiency.

After using this restaurant on many occasions since 2013, I was really disappointed by my recent visit. I tried to order a starter which was a salad from the main course and was told I couldn’t. I then ordered a bottle of St Emilion red...and it arrived fridge cold. When I complained to the waiter he told me it would be warm in 10 mins! On paying my bill I disclosed my disappointment and again had a poor response meaning they have now lost my custom, I cannot but help feel that they are living on a past reputation.More

Wonderful place to eat. The location is quiet yet its just around the corner from Place St Pierre. We found the food exceptional. It was really busy but the service was quick and polite. I had the steak with green pepper sauce and my wife...had the salmon in sorrel sauce. We both thought it was one of the best meals we've had.More
