As expected…

We reserved a table at 11:30 but when we went there it was already almost full. And by the time we made orders there was already a que. The omelette was not bad or good. It was expensive. All those are as we expected. This is not a restaurant where you purely enjoy eating but a place to enjoy... read more

The most expensive two eggs in the world (35 euros, plus wine etc) concocted in a disgustingly baveuse omelette. People queing in order to be taken advantage of. They (we) deserve it.

Look: it is pricy. But then the omelets are really tasty, interesting and I guess worth the experience (specially the way of doing them). But then for anything else (than omelets) you pay a lot and it is not that great. Treat it as a tourist attraction for which you pay extra. The service was a bit arrogant – standard... More

AVOID THIS TRAP ! Restaurants at the Mont Saint Michel are all cheap, "industrial" and terrible expensive. Forget a lunch or a dinner at this place that is a shame for the French gastronomy. And in bonus you cannot park your car without taking an expensive shuttle! A great business for the owner of most restaurants (including "La Mère Poulard":... More

You'll find much better places near this one. Nothing especially bad, but definitively not worth the price.

Extremely over rated , have had far better quality food at over half the price . The eggs should be golden at the price charging for a basic omelette that was nothing special , we would not return or recommend

This restaurant is very famous Its spécial dish is the omelette. it is true that what they can do with 3 eggs is just amazing. However except thé omelette thé rest is quite disappointing for the price one pays.

We really wanted to try the famous omelette from the place that started it all. Located right at the entrance there is quite a show that is put on as you enter. The waiter was friendly and inviting. We decided to share a salmon and potato omelette and it was perfect. We found it expensive but worth the experience.

I saw La Mere Poulard reviewed on a TV travel show, so when my friend and I went to Mont-St-Michel we decided to check it out. The entrance is extremely interesting as one is able to watch several food preparers in action and get some great photos. Unless you are swimming in cash, I'd suggest that you do enjoy the... More
