The owners have been running this restaurant since the early 70ties and it shows; he cooks and the lady of the house takes care of the customers with a nice and gentle but firm flair . You have to take the menu for 29,5 euro, just amazing value for money; a delicious tapenade followed by a soup, as a starter... More

We paid a first visit to Buis les Baronnies on a hot weekend and without knowing the restaurant scene. This resulted in a tour around the tourist part of the village, where none of the options really appealed. However, we then spotted La Fourchette in a shady spot in the calm of the Place des Arcades with outside tables looking... More

Had a €29,50 menu with a local wine for €13 a bottle which was not bad. Food was ok but like someone else said nothing special either. We both had lamb, but although we both ordered medium they turned out very different. I think little restaurants like this which have been there forever need to innovate a bit if they... More

Great meal. Olive tapenade was incredible... Great vin du pays, awesome salads, and great creme brûlée.

The restaurant we were headed to in Buis was closed so we chose La Fourchette, not sure what to expect. The food was excellent! My eggplant mousseline entree was light, airy and delicious. The roast lamb with wine sauce was tender, fragrant and satisfying. And the creme caramel was the icing on the cake (so to speak). This is the... More

Excellent food, beautifully presented at a price you almost cannot buy the ingredients. In good weather you eat outside or under the medieval arcade and don't worry when the weather is bad because the restaurant is decorated in good taste!

We have been eating at this restaurant for years since we started having annual Summer holidays in Buis-les-Baronnies. We love this restaurant. The food is excellent, the owner is extremely welcoming and ambience is wonderful.
