I will be visiting Mont Saint Michel for two full days near the end of August, staying within the walls. Is anyone familiar with restaurants there? (I'm travelling by train, so hopping in a car to go to the next town over won't be an option.) I've heard the pré-salé lamb is worth having, but that not all the restaurants serve the real thing. Also, my budget is not huge...though I do want to eat well!
The one place I keep reading about is La Mère Poulard, for the lamb and the omelettes...but I've heard that it's an overpriced tourist trap. Are there other good places nearby for those dishes?
Are there other local specialities I should try?
I saw one mention of a place called Poulard Ainé, but can't find any address. Has anyone heard of it?
Thanks for any and all advice!
