    La Mere Poulard Restaurant (In Le Mont Saint Michel, France)
    What a terrible restaurant for a terribly high price and a horrible service; a true tourist trap. We had the remarkably stupid idea of having a light dinner on April 14, 2009. An omelet with about 2 tablespoons of lobster meat and 1 tablespoon of dry white rice for 48 EU !!!! 3 omelets with a bottle of wine for 174 EU= 233 $ US. You get a much better tasting omelet at McDonalds for pennies ! The service was even worse; the waiter spilled our bottle of wine and to show his remorse he came back with a glass (yes a single glass) of a miscellaneous red wine ! An overall terrible experience. Do yourselves a favor; stay out of it.

    Unique Suggestions: No, you do not have to go !

    Fun Alternatives: None

    La Mere Poulard

    The most renowned restaurant in Mont St Michel, they are famous for their omelette Mere Poulard. They say the secret is in the preparation, cooked in a long handled pan over a wood burning fire.
    Inside the restaurant, it is nicely decorated and with a lot of dedicated photos of renowned people (Margaret Thatcher, Maurice Chevalier, Buffet, ...)

    But it is only an omelette, nothing more. Nothing to pay so much for a simple omelette !
