About the restaurant La Mère Poulard

Le Mont-Saint-Michel abrite cette auberge du XIXe où, pendant plus de 70 ans, Annette Poulard rendit hommage à la Normandie et à la Bretagne à travers ses recettes devenues mythiques. Parmi elles, la fameuse omelette cuite au feu de bois dans la grande cheminée. Une épicerie propose aujourd'hui les produits estampillés Mère Poulard.

Deux salles à manger, dont une façon ancien palace au premier étage. Plus haut, les chambres agréables donnent sur la baie, l'abbaye, le village ou les jardins.

Une réputation internationale pour ces vieux murs constellés de plus de 4000 dédicaces de personnalités : de Cary Grant à Nicolas Sarkozy.

A very neurotic and rude hostess. We booked a table and walked in to warn that we might be 30 min late so they should keep our table. She said no, when we asked why, she turned furios.

Needs to do an effort to preserve the tradition and manage the touristic pressure. I asked for a decanter for my wine (by the way one of the most expensive on the list) and I was told there was no decanter and no time anyway to take the benefits of a decanter which is totally wrong and demonstrates lack of attention and knowledge. This is not admissible for a restaurant of this level. Food was good or very good, as expected and worth the travelling and the visit, except the potatoes which were warmed up and a bit overcooked. Deserts were well above normal, but not exceptional. Needs some cleaning (dust, spider webs !). Appart from the decanter episode, service was dedicated, friendly, professional.

We had to try the omelet. There were three of us, so we shared one and ordered other entrees. All food was delicious. We made reservations ahead of time. No fuss, great service.

Food was in general good and the omelette, speciality of the house something to try out. However, touristy overpriced and service, although courteous, very average for that type of pricing. To sum up: checked ✅, will not come back.

The starter and main course where well prepared. We had to ask for a second serving of the dessert, as the fondant was not good. The personell was also quite rude. Expected more of this restaurant.

Overpriced, slow meal with poor service in a charming setting with a very pretty kitchen. Clearly getting by purely on reputation. We found the food acceptable - neither particularly good nor particularly bad. However, it's Mont-Saint-Michel, and this is the experience that one is supposed to have at least once in one's life - for good and for bad.

With great resistance, mainly due to the negative reviews, I agreed to dine here (Make advance reservations) while visiting Mont-Saint-Michel. The omelettes are that good and unique enough that you need to try them just once in your life. The prix fix is the way to go. True, the service is indifferent and the focus is on giving you what you ordered. But I say if you know that going there, you might be pleasantly surprised and glad you did.
