I love simple home cooked meal and Chez Nenesse always makes great food with best ingredients. We come here everytime we visit Paris. I love the causal atmosphere and service is always good. Must try the snail with mushroom as the mushroom is really delicious!!

To celebrate my wife's birthday we went to Paris for 9 days, renting an apartment in Le Marais (Paris 3rd). Walking around the neighborhood we spotted a charming looking restaurant around the corner from our apartment called Chez Nenesse on Rue St. Onge. It is...More

boutiques, historic buildings, cozy traditional
restaurants, and hidden parks. Around each corner,
you'll come across little gems of architecture
spanning the centuries, from understated medieval
towers to classical libraries and 17th century
splendor. This neighborhood unites a rich mix of
