We all enjoyed our entree's especially the salmon tartare and oysters. The curry mussels in white wine were delicious as was the huge seafood platter. over all... More

We visited this restaurant as a treat, as it had the rare Zander on one of the menus which I have never seen in England and only ever had in France a few times. It's delicate and slightly perfumed (think Turbot). The restaurant also had Mouclade, a Charentaise/Bordelaise speciality. Well, both were exquisite, and the accompanying vegetables gorgeous. Wines were... More

The grilled lemon sole was very good and the menu as a whole was OK. The accompaniment however of pasta with all the fish dishes was a bit samey and maybe more imaginative accompaniments would be appreciated. Small selection of half bottles of wine.

We were unfortunately distracted whilst eating here owing to news of yet another French train strike threatening our travel arrangements so did not really give the place the intention it deserved, but I think it only fair to try a review anyway. It is a fish restaurant and the dishes were very good and service was excellent. It certainly ticked... More

Decided to take two dear friends of mine to this Restaurant on a Saturday night. The service was slow, and when I asked for a bottle of Pelligrino they gave us a bottle of Badoit at room temp !!!. When I said something, the waiter replied that it was all they had !!!. I will not be going back.!

Could be a lovely place but spoiled by the attitude of the owner which clearly rubs off on the staff too. We left after our starters due to the objectionable waitresses and downright rude owner.

If you like seafood (especially oysters), Le Grand Bleu is the place to go. Everything is done to perfection. The service is excellent, and the ambiance is ideal. Although one goes for the seafood, we found the creme brulee one of the best we have ever had. The restaurant is small and very popular, so we would recommend reservations. Most... More

Visited at lunchtime on market day so very busy. Specialists in seafood and fish but some meat dishes too. Dish of the day was Choucroute but we had the €18 3 course set menu with fish main courses. All the food was excellent and service was good too. Get there early or book. Highly recommended.

A good honest French restaurant serving good food with even better service. Reasonably priced you will leave happy and well fed. We have eaten at Le Grand Blue on several occasions. During the summer months you should consider booking a table in advance so as not to have to wait.
