My partner booked this restaurant for my birthday. It was directly opposite from where we were staying which made it quite an easy choice, especially considering the positive reviews. The whole evening was such a beautiful experience. The owner was so friendly and welcoming as soon as we arrived. We were settled into a lovely quiet table towards the back... More

We visit Paris a few times a year and Le Chemise has got a special place in our heart. This small and beautifully decorated restaurant is managed by Fabien, the front of the house. And he is very charming and welcoming and you feel like at home from the very first moment. This time, as a starter we opted for... More

Le Chemise is one of our favorite restaurants in the 11eme arond. close to the Place de la Republique. The service is very friendly, nice choice in the menu and correctly priced wines. Try it out, you will not be dissappointed, but make sure you book in advance as this a very popular place.

I spent 2 hrs at least trying to find the perfect restaurant to go to for my birthday in Paris and this was perfect! Brought us to a spot we had not been before, which had a beautiful statue and lots of restaurants, as well as we had a delicious meal that was reasonably priced - 109 Euro for 2... More

Saw this restaurant and checked out its website. Saw that the menu was only in French but the staff were very helpful and friendly in explaining what dishes were what. There was so many dishes that sounded great so my partner and I shared two different mains and starters. The food was excellent and the restaurant had a lovely cosy... More

The staff is always welcoming. The staff speaks impeccable English and is very helpful to explain the menu. The presentation is lovely. I had the scallops carpaccio, which came with lots of greens on top almost like a salad and an appetizer. and Chateaubriand with shallot sauce. The waiter suggested a great bottle of wine. You need to make a... More

Le Chemise was recommended by our hotel and we are so glad they did. We enjoyed it so much, we returned again the next night, our final night in Paris. It is quite small so we encourage making a reservation. The food was outstanding, wines reasonably priced and the attention from the owner and his staff made us feel very... More

My wife and I went here our final night of our Honeymoon. I had read wonderful things about this restaurant and they did not disappoint. One thing you have to do is make a reservation! We thankfully made one, but the restaurant is small, so make sure you have a reservation. The service was good, they explained everything on the... More
