Left a good impression

Very charming host and surprisingly young kitchen crew. Best escargos I ever had, very delicate fish, the choice of cheeses for desert was nothing special although the presentation was interesting.

Had reserved at Le Chemise from London by email with a speedy response. Quick 3 minute walk from our hotel in the Place de Republique to a small but very chic space with stone walls and a tiny patio at the back. Charming multi-lingual server was very helpful in translating the menu. My husband had beautiful bacon wrapped asparagus to... More

Best Meal we had in Paris including one twice the price. Short menu that covered all the bases of French cuisine while also covering all meats ... Steak, Chicken, Fish, Duck, Veal. We each tried a different plate (4 of us including 2 teens) and we devoured the meals. Although we loved everything, we all thought the duck was the... More

We had a perfect evening at Le Chemise. The scrambled eggs with black truffles was one of the best dishes I have had in my life (appetizer). The chocolate "eggroll" dessert was magnificent. My partner enjoyed her meal as much as I enjoyed mine. The atmosphere also was ideal: casual minimalist, as if we were dining in our own homes... More

We've been to this restaurant after recommendation from the concierge of our hotel. We were delighted! The food was delicious, we had a very nice service, the wine was very good. The ambience was cozy and modern. We were very satisfied! Can't wait to be back in Paris to have the experience again!

This place was close to our hotel and since it ranked in the top 100 of all the restaurants in Paris, we took it as a good sign. As others have commented, the menu was short and uncomplicated (which is great) and consisted of good French cuisine (or at least that what's I thought). The staff patiently explained everything on... More

We booked this place online using the fork as it was fairly close to our holiday apartment and sounded great. We were not disappointed! The food and service were excellent, the main waiter/owner was happy to explain the whole menu in English and served us a lovely bread and tapenade appetiser, he also provided great suggestions for wine pairings.

It was a surprise to find this tiny place, close to Place de la République, with good ambient and really good food. The menu is short and the wine list is basically french selection. The staff was very kind, speak french (of course), english and spanish (maybe some more). I took Chateaubriand, really well cooked but the potatoes... a bit... More

My wife and I took a long weekend to celebrate a big anniversary. We ate in several restaurants close to Republique, of which this was the best of a very good bunch. Le Chemise is small and intimate (so good idea to book ahead - I'd guess there are only 25 or so places), open only Monday through Friday. It... More

Staying in Bastille / Oberkampf

Neighborhood Profile
Bastille / Oberkampf
Bastille and Oberkampf are lively parts of town made for entertainment.

Students and young professionals fill the busy bars around Bastille and Oberkampf.

Towards Republique, skateboarders practice their tricks while others chill out at the square. If you’re looking for late-night revelry, this is your neighborhood.
