Very expensive for crepes and omelettes, although the food is very good. Very sloe service, we walked out before the service was complete. Staff were Ok, our poor French made it difficult, and tables around us seemed to have quicker service. Maybe it is because...More

We love omelet in America and that was the reason we decided to try this place. They charge around 40 dollars for an omelet that has more butter than 10 croissants! Nothing special at all. Overrated and fattening!

This is an overpriced place for a good omelette. We shared an omelette and a glass of wine and total bill was 50 euros. This is one of those places that you go once because of the light and fluffy omelette and since they beat...More

Very good restaurant on first street of the monastery. You do not need to go up steps. The food was very good. The prices are somewhat higher (35 Euro per meal) but you get to have a unique experience.

Don't miss a stop here to enjoy a great meal. The omelettes are amazing. Desserts, too. I really enjoy the pictures and artifacts on the walls. I'd love to stay at the hotel sometime.

Known for its omelettes, but it is more like a soufflé. You can watch them being made and while they won't reveal their secrets, I can tell you it involves at least a half a cup of butter! It is cooked on an open fire...More

C'est le coup classique d'indiquer COMPLET alors que ce n'est pas de cas lorsque le personnel veut se la couler douce en l'absence du patron (naturellement) !!!

I went to La mère Poulare last summer with my girlfriend (I am french and she is japanese). Upon arrival we had no resevation. They placed us on the 2nd floor, the decoration was kinda old and the place was not very clean, also maybe due to the lacation the place was filled with flies. Servicewise, I actually had found out that the glaces were dirty and cald a waiter to change it, I was suprised that he actually grabed it in front of me checked it and say that it there was no probleme, I had to insist to change it because (it was filled with dust). Foodwise extremly disapointed, overpriced, non of us finished, we actually just had a bit of each one of our meals (she had the omelette with salmon and I had oyster). I really wouldn't recommend it to anybody, tourist trap ( Just to specify that I am not judjing without knowing anything, I graduated from a swiss hospitality school and am now working for 5 stars hotel brands around the world)
