We were recommended this place by our hotel, great home cooked french food. Nothing too fancy, but very tasty. My wife and i both had duck liver with potato grattin which was excellent. Make sure to book.

Four here was a lonely planet recommendation that did not disappoint. It was one of the best meals we had in France. You felt like the owner was cooking just for you. The menu is simple and satisfying. There are two options daily. My husband and each got something different so we were able to try everything. Two starters, entrees,... More

On the basis of other trip advisor reviews we ate there last night and were not disappointed. We booked late so took a table outside was the only option which was rather pleasant. A choice of 2 starters and 2 mains was enough for us. The food was exquisitely cooked and packed full of flavour. The amuse bouche was a... More

the atmosphere is like a cafe or bistro. The choices are limited but the food is really nice - like french home cooking.

This small restaurant is tucked away down a side road so you have to know it's there to find it. The food was exceptionally good. We had two courses, high quality seafood and steaks, and could not manage a dessert. Proper French cooking - mother and daughter run the restaurant.

Went here after reading the reviews and was not impressed. The place is small and opens just 2 evenings a week which seems to make people want to go there as well as the reviews. The food was good except we had the same lettuce/ tomato salad with both main dishes and the appetizer, a little variation would be better.... More

We ate our best meal in France, Paris included, at La Fourchette in Amboise. It is tucked away just off Nationale and is run by a mother and daughter who do the cooking and serving. Both make an effort to meet you and assure things are to your satisfaction. The food is so flavorful and inviting without being pretentious. Everything... More

This is what French food should be like! A restaurant that makes me remember the true meaning of "Home sweet home" after almost 20 years abroad! :-) Merci Mesdames!

When in Amboise do not miss this small, (21 seats inside, a few tables outside) side alley gem of an eatery. The limited, ever changing chalkboard offerings are delectable. The mother daughter team are warm and inviting, with great service, the chef taking time to chat about the food from her open kitchen. The prices are quite fair for this... More

This small, lovely restaurant is a gem you want to keep to yourself but can't stop spreading the word. Limited menu means high attention to every dish. Fish rillettes with shrimp were visually beautiful and I can still taste the flavors. My husband enjoyed his entree of perfectly cooked fish and my braised beef with creamy potatoes was straight from... More
