As one walks in the door a reception awaits, this comprises of a few staff standing to attention who are very well presented, you are led into a very open restaurant without sitting first for an a aperitif. The tables are so far apart it is remarkable. The food was well presented and served by one person holding a tray... More

This restaurant has probably one of the best service in the world: attentive, friendly, smiling and professional. Every move is precise and elegant. Glasses are from Baccarat and Candle-holders Lalique. The place is simply perfect. You feel very well in this cosy environment. There is a beautiful old oven (like in a traditional living room) which looks amazing but is... More

We had dinner here last month and it was outstanding. We booked only a few days in advance and luckily got a table for the weekend. We were kindly greeted by a gang of employees and promptly escorted to our table. Delicious breads were quickly delivered and the menu was explained. We went for the tasting menu with a wine...

The restaurant has a nice dining room and serves great food. Fittingly, they're situated on the place Anne-Sophie Pic. We enjoyed our meal, out was worth the trip from Switzerland, and I would go again. Only slight drawback was a tad undercooked scallop, but who are we to complain when it still tastes great and the rest is fantastic?!

Description
En une douzaine d’années, Nicolas STAMM et Serge SCHAAL ont fait de La Fourchette des Ducs une des adresses les plus envoutantes de la région Alsace, où« tout n’est qu’ordre et beauté, luxe, calme et volupté ».LE GOUT DE L’EXCELLENCEDepuis 2000, leurs idées et leur complicité ont permis la naissance d’une demeure de prestige. Ils ont imaginé à Obernai, un écrin gastronomique d’une trentaine de couverts, récompensé de 2 étoiles au Guide Michelin en 2005. Membre actif des Grandes Tables du Monde, La Fourchette des Ducs est un lieu chargé d’histoire où respire un coin de l’âme alsacienne.Perfection du décor tout d’abord, où se mêlent cristaux précieux – Baccarat pour le salon d’été et Lalique pour le salon d’hiver – et marqueterie de Charles Spindler. Dans cette bâtisse historique des années 1920 voulue par Ettore Bugatti comme lieu de réception, le lustre du passé a ressurgi, complétée de touches discrètes d’une grâce contemporaine, celle des designers Philippe Starck et Arik Lévy.Perfection de la cuisine enfin, Nicolas STAMM, ancien élève de l’école hôtelière de Strasbourg, redonne toutes ses lettres de noblesse à la Cuisine Française Classique qu’il réinvente et porte très haut. S’il se voit régulièrement récompensé pour sa ferveur et sa créativité, c’est qu’il a su judicieusement allié Tradition et Modernité. Ainsi, Nicolas STAMM a cette érudition classique, comme un virtuose, qui lui permet de jouer une symphonie à la perfection : « au soupir près, tout en offrant des variations de jazzman ».
