At the base of Mont St Michel you will find a true dining experience. White linen tablecloths, excellent service and gourmet food! Never had an omelette so light, fluffy and flavourful! Had the omelette with bacon and potatoes and was overwhelmed with the amount and quality of bacon in it. A must eat when in Normandy! And accompany it with... More

A great choice and of course one can consider this a little pricey for an omelette but this can be called "the" omelette. It is simply delicious, soft an amazing. It's a one in a lifetime experience that's worth doing to me. On top of that the rest of the menu is excellent. I took the Menu' Tradition with an... More

Not worth the price. Got charged for water. Food was good but its easy to find excellent food in this area. Tourist trap. Skip it.

We succumbed to the hype and decided to try the "best omelettes in the world". The omelettes were good, but not exceptional. They were definitely grossly overpriced - for 3 omelettes and water we paid over 120 euros! Was it worth it - I would not say so.

We were looking forward to ending our visit to Mont Saint-Michel with a fine dinner at La Mere Poulard. And while the food was excellent, the staff was needlessly snooty and surprisingly amateurish. The maitre d' acted like he was doing us a favor seating us, even though we had made reservations months in advance. We were the first diners... More

I have no complaints about the food and, in fact, very much enjoyed my omelette. Not everyone likes their eggs cooked the same way so this style omelette (fluffy outside, soft and runny in the middle) may not appeal to you. The service, however, is what brought down the rating of this restaurant. We arrived as the restaurant opened and... More

First off, we had a choice of two restaurants as part of a small package tour to Mont Saint Michel and, sadly, we chose this one. The menu is very limited serving mostly a weird omelette/souffle concoctions that were both overcooked and runny at the same time. The restaurant was not full but service was slow and the staff seemed... More

..... a tourist trap. The receptionist was a pleasant experience and the chefs put on a good show at the restaurant entrance but that is as far as it went. The furniture in our room was old and worn as was everything else in the room. The shower appliances were broken and the WiFi did not work. It would have... More

We dined here on a trip to La Mont St. Michel, and it was a very low point on an otherwise excellent stay. EUR 128.00 for 3 adult mains, two kids menus, two beers and a cidre was very poor value indeed, but not only that, the food was almost inedible, everyone's food came at different times, and the staff...
