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.

We found his place through trip advisor local map. It was yummy and the service was good. They were accommodating with our three young children. I'd recommend.

The three course 18.50 Euro is well worth the price. My wife and I had excellent mussels in wine sauce for an appitizer and poached Salmon for a entree that was the best tasting fish we have ever had. The meal was completed with an ice crime dessert. Service was prompt and very attentive. We definately would recommend this restaurant.

Good friendly service and nice atmosphere dining outside. Good selection of fish and plenty of alternatives if you aren't keen on fish.
