We went to this restaurant because I really wanted the experience. Well, I had the Fish Soup, and it was just a broth and quite a bore. My husband got the Omelette, which we agreed to share. It was not very filling or satisfying. This is a very expensive restaurant for what you get. Went back to our room and... More

I waited for nearly an hour to eat at this famous place. The food was excellent and the service was good as well. But it was very expensive for a lunch. This is not a place I would go everyday - it was a special treat, so I paid the price. It was worth it all in all. A unique... More

This was the worst restaurant I have ever eaten in. I do not even know how they could serve the food that they did. I have brown fish water (soup) for a starter and it was honestly horrible. My companion couldn't even eat her food due to the vile smell. My main course was meant to be a club sandwich.... More

Location is wonderful, of course. As well as an historycal place. Remember: when you'll enter, you'll pay all of this! Now let's talk about the food and drink, because that is the real purpose: Omelettes. That's it. In their menu they offer just that and for the "reasonable" amount of 30€ (!!!). If you wanna drink something, try a bottle... More

I knew that La Mère Poluard is an expensive restaurant and I knew that one goes there to taste the most celebrated omelette in the world. I knew that Le Mont Saint Michel is a unique place and normally that means paying everything more than usual. But here we are beyond any realistic and decent imagination. Much beyond. We were...

We were told that when you go to Mont-Saint-Michel eat here. The fluffy Omelettes and the copper kettle show lived up to their billing and speaking of which bring your wallet. The location, right at the entry to the Mont is desirable and eating here give you the calories you need to have to propel you up the hundreds of... More
