“Outstanding!”
Reviewed 15 June 2014 via mobile

My husband and I have been traveling in Europe for the last 3 weeks and the meal we had at La Fourchette de l'Eglise was, by far, the best we have had yet! We stopped by the restaurant earlier in the afternoon to look at the menu, and the chef took time from his dinner preparations to interpret the menu for us. He was very friendly and helpful and later that night we found out what a talented and creative chef he is! We had a 3 course dinner that was very reasonably priced at 29 euros. Every course was absolutely delicious and beautifully presented. Our server was friendly, polite, and gave the perfect amount of attention to our needs. The dinner and evening could not have been better! We would choose to dine there again and would happily recommend it to friends and family.

“Terrific local food”
Reviewed 16 May 2014

Friendly people and amazing food. Run by two young men, with excellent English and great sense of humor. The food is extraordinary. Don't miss this place if you are in town.

“Lovely experience”
Reviewed 20 March 2014

Visited Evian and visited this restaurant, we were asked if we had booked, we had not. But a table had nearly finished. We waited about a couple of minutes and were shown to our table. Only one menu, we had fish terrine, which was very nice, chicken and mushroon main meal and fresh fruit salad. Two glasses of red house wine - all excellent! Staff friendly, food great. Price 3 course 15 euros each and wine 3,20 a glass. Would recommend booking as 8 people were turned away as we had our meal. RECOMMENDED. as we were given bill, with a card and a small wooden peg with a wooden ladybird on. A LOVELY EXPERIENCE March 2014

“Excellent”
Reviewed 9 October 2013 via mobile

Have just returned from dinner, made reservation based on Trip Advisor suggestions, but on a Tuesday evening in October the restaurant was not overly busy. Menu was small but perfectly formed, our dishes were all quite simple but beautifully cooked and presented. The waiter was friendly and attentive, genuinely interested in our comments. Prices were very reasonable. All in all, a great evening.

“Rude personnel...appalling....”
Reviewed 26 September 2013

We stopped by to have dinner. The waiter said that they were fully booked and there is absolutely no way for us to wait. Two tables were unoccupied, with one even not covered. We were almost pushed out of the door by him. Le non de restaurant doit être changer
: pas la fourchette de l'eglise but la fourchette [---]!

Bonjour Madame Katyushan,

Merci d’avoir pris le temps de laisser un commentaire sur notre restaurant.
Il est d’ailleurs, dommage de nous noter sur une première fausse impression et sans y avoir mangé…

Je peux vous assurer que le soir de votre visite, le restaurant était effectivement complet. Notre équipe étant composée d’un serveur et d’un cuisinier (moi-même), nous ne pouvons pas nous assumer plusieurs services dans la journée. Nous sommes humains, après tout !
Afin d’éviter toute déconvenue, nous vous avons accueilli au pas de la porte pour vous annoncer que malheureusement nous ne pouvions vous recevoir ce soir-là. Inutile de vous faire attendre pour rien.

Il est vrai que deux tables étaient inoccupées, mais nous attendions une réservation et l'autre était réservée pour les effets personnels du groupe, présent dans le restaurant, lors de votre passage. Nous favorisons la qualité à la quantité. Aussi, inutile d’insister…

J’espère qu’une autre occasion se présentera pour que vous puissiez goûter à mes plats…
Thanks for your kindly understanding.

PS : Votre familiarité n’apporte rien de pertinent à votre commentaire. Aussi, je vous demanderais de modérer vos propos, qui pourrait entacher la crédibilité de ce site et la vôtre.
