After walking the narrow streets of Avignon in the trembling hot July this was a great find. Very nice atmosphere, friendly staff and the food was excellent. We where there with kids and the meny wasn't adopted for kids, so they had their first duck and liked it, no other families with kids in the restaurant when we where there... More

Excellent service, warm and friendly atmosphere and fantastic food at a reasonable price. We were a group of 6, with a reservation-- a must. The menu at 35 euros was a great deal and the selections very broad. There weren't many English speakers, although there was an English menu, and it had the feel of a neighborhood place/ Can't say...

We got quite lost driving into Avignon and finding a parking. We ended up very late for our reservation but the restaurant manager was very kind and offered to seat us at the bar while we ordered wine and she sorted out a table for us. We had the pleasure of chatting with an elderly woman, a local, who dines... More

Our dinner here was very good, and a very good value. You can do three courses for 35 euros, choosing from any menu item rather than being limited to certain selections. All three courses were good - in particular the daube de boeuf and apricot tart tatin. (While you can choose to order less, the three course deal is so... More

Our Avignon B & B owner recommended La Fourchette and made the reservation for us. A perfect choice, as we were looking for a typical Provencal menu. The friendly owner, who greeted us, oversees everything to ensure that the meal is perfect. We had the fixed price menu for 35 euros each. My husband started with les escargots de Bourgogne,... More

Skip Dessert & they are a 5 STAR rating. A restuarant not to miss when in Avignon! It's a pretty restaurant, cozy, has a very relaxed feel. And from the moment you walk in, you are made to feel welcome. The host that greets you is also the owner and she certainly likes to have fun. She oversees everthing that... More

Our Avignon B&B owner recommended La Fourchette to us, and what a great recommendation! This is authentic Provence cuisine at its best. This is a family-run restaurant, and the host is the owner. She makes sure that every plate is perfect. Be sure to make reservations in advance as this place has a great reputation with locals and tourists and... More

We booked a reservation a week in advance by calling from the US. I had intended to have the concierge at our hotel call to reconfirm but never got around to it. We arrived and alas they could find no reservation. However, the host was able to make a place for us. I am so grateful she did as the... More
