We go on a regular basis to this restaurant. The service is really go and everything on the menu excellent. You always have a warm and friendly welcom followed byt a great choice of starters, mains and dessert. There choice of wines never dissappoints. Reserve though because they are popular (and for very good reasons!!!)

My husband and I did a quick google search of restaurants near our hotel. We chose Le Chemise for our last Parisian meal, and we were so happy we did. The space is small and welcoming. When we walked in (we did not have reservations, but I would recommend reserving a table ahead of time since space is limited), we... More

We walked from our hotel to Le Chemise our last night in Paris. I don't think we could have done any better! We shared Rose and ordered the shrimp starter. I got the Chateaubriand, which was out of this world. Best I've had in my life. The desserts were delicious and service was very friendly and attentive. Loved the recommendations.

This small restaurant is a delight to visit and enjoy a meal. The service is friendly and helpful. The food exemplary and the wine list compliments the menu. It was close to full the evening we went, so it may be an idea to make a reservation. We did and had a quiet table at the rear of the restaurant.

I visited here on a weekday lunchtime, when the fixed price menu is especially good value. Also, might I suggest checking with the restaurant's website to ensure it is not closed - as they do enjoy disappearing on holiday, from time to time ! Anyway, the service, comfort, ambience and above all, the meal itself, are all of the highest... More

In the Republic/Oberkampf area, this small, tidy gem is a true find. After 3 weeks of Lyon/Dijon/Paris eating, I thought I was past being surprised at food and presentation, but Le Chemise delivers. The young, helpful staff is friendly, but not haughty or hovering. The food is presented beautifully, and the aromas/tastes measure up to any restaurant we visited, including... More
