The restaurant is on a dark, rather unprepossessing street but the inside is a complete contrast to the area outside. The place is smart, glamorous even. The staff friendly. The food was excellent, indeed some of the best I have had in a while. The experience was only spoilt by the other diner smoking away throughout the meal. It is... More

I had a dinner with a friend at la Fourchette and I dare say I was blown away! The waiter who attended to us was a nice young lady who speaks 5 languages with a great smile; the food was awesome without a long waiting time. The interior is really nice, cool and cosy and makes you feel at home... More

I was extremely impressed by my trip to la Fourchette today. I have very strict dietary restrictions right now and figured I just wouldn't eat at this lunch event for a friend. La Fourchette went out of their way to find something I could eat and made it for me. It was not on the menu.. They just wanted me... More

Downtown Dakar can be busy, noisy, and dusty. For lunch, La Fourchette is quiet, peaceful, and has air conditionning. Their 3-course lunch menu is expensive for senegalese standards, but it does not disappoint with top quality ingredients. La Fourchette is an excellent restaurant, with consistent quality of ingredients, and I try to eat there at least once when I travel... More

Pricey, crowded in the nights. It is a kinda restaurant that turns into a bar at night. Very smoky as people constantly smoke there. Very pretentious place.

I have to say I am quite a good cook. So when I pay money for food I really want something extremely good. I have stopped going to most restaurants in Dakar, but I always return to La Fourchette. There is a wide range of cuisine from around the world. I have been there several times and the menu changes... More

Great decor and vibe amidst the chaotic streets of dakar. Good menu. Good food. Good service. Not cheap. Around fifty Eur for two. A good option if staying at the Novotel or Ibis which are very near.
