Considering it is only 2 people running the show (the owner/chef and 1 waitress), don't be surprised by the limited menu. As long as you come with an open mind, you will not be disappointed! The restaurant is small (only about 6-10 tables depending on how they have them split up) but quaint. The food, from start to finish, was delicious! I will definitely recommend to others!

Our hotel, Le Clos d'Amboise, recommended this restaurant. It is a quaint restaurant that has their menu on a chalkboard. It is chef/owned farm to table. The chef was very kind to us. I mentioned i was hoping to have a salad and she graciously offered to make me a salad with goat cheese. It was fantastic! She wrapped the cheese in philodough. My sister had the fish and loved it. She gave us a starter of mushroom soup - excellent. The apple dessert was so good! When we first arrived and saw the limited selection we almost left. We were so glad we stayed because it was one of the best meals. Very enjoyable dining experience.

My wife and I had a great time at La Fourchette. Mom cooks, daughter runs the service....really great place...maybe 8 tables...the menu is limited...the night we were there two apps; two entrees; 2 desserts....we both had duck confit which was unbelievable...apps were great....dessert was good...bottle of wine was decent.

All in I think we paid 80 Euro? Just a great spot super friendly service...need a reservation.

This small restaurant requires reservations for dinner. Book at least a couple days ahead and you will be happy that you did. The locale and ambience are charming. Cheery Madame Chef Christine superbly prepares the menu and its fare. Her daughter greets diners and serves the tables admirably. It is almost worth the visit just to watch them work, in such a tiny but fully occupied environment, with such harmony and efficiency! But then again there is the food: simply scrumptious. We had, to start, coquilles saint jacques and foie gras; then, cod and a nicely sauced steak (bavette); finally, apple tarts. The menu (which changes daily) is small but delivers! What a pleasant evening!

Dinner was a unique experience at the tiny La Fourchette run entirely by a mom (the chef) and her daughter. Our group of 24 filled the place. We celebrated the 4th of July in song proclaimed it to be our best dinner in the Loire Valley so far.
They were as gracious and welcoming as any proprietor could possibly be and it is really quite amazing that this multi course meal with wine pairings was prepared and served by only two people. The menu changes at the chefs will so I won't mention specific dishes as it all will change but in terms of feeling a sense of place and appreciating a local meal, it was superb.
