We ate here in the evening and had a good meal which we all enjoyed . A little pricey but normal for a good restaurant in the city.

We had passed by this restaurant two nights in a row, and both times it was completely packed - so we decided to make a reservation. The good: It is very nice inside, and has a great wine list. The wait staff were attentive and willing to make food substitutions. However, i just don't think the food is up to... More

It is our fourth year of visiting Avignon - how fortunate we discovered La Fourchette on our first visit. We have been back every year and are never disappointed. Family run, really french food and local produce across the menu. It is an elegant restaurant with that touch of class in style and presentation yet not showy and obviously frequented... More

This place fills up, you must make a reservation. Having said that, you would imagine it to be excellent, but it is far from that. It is expensive with the standard one price for a three course meal (which is popular in the region). I had a lentil and sausage starter - a bland and tasteless sausge, a fish main... More

While in Avignon, we made a last-minute reservation at La Fourchette. When we arrived for dinner, we were pleasantly surprised to be offered a table in the window. The food was delicious, the wine list had many wonderful choices and the service most enjoyable. We had a most pleasant dinner. I highly recommend making reservations in advance.

This was our only traditional French meal while in France this time. The service was great, the atmosphere lovely and being family run and the family is so present, makes it charming. For a classic French dining experience I would definitely recommend.

On a side street 1 block from the Palais, this family run effort serves great food at an extremely fair price. The service is not only friendly and fun, while still being serious enough to respect their food offerings. We know wine and enjoy a good wine list, BUT call for and enlist the expert assistance of Florine who knows... More

We followed the recommendation in one of our guide books and arrived at La Fourchette for lunch. It was busy, but not too crowded and were seated right away. There is no outdoor seating, but the interior is bright and very pleasantly decorated. We each ordered the two course plat du jour and all was very good, in particular the... More

We've been to La Fourchette many times over the years, but we had a hiatus of perhaps ten years since out last visit. In August, we corrected that omission and visited for a lovely meal. The son of Madame Hiely or his fiance greets you warmly and shows you to the table. The dining rooms are high-ceilinged, warm-toned and entirely... More
