Le Chemise is located almost directly across Rue de Malt from where my wife & I were staying at Hotel Le Mareuil for seven nights.
When we walked past the restaurant on Friday and Saturday evenings, it was packed (always a good sign), so we read some recent reviews here on TripAdviser, and then asked the hotel to make a dinner reservation for us for Wednesday evening.
When we entered the restaurant, Fabien (one of the owners of Le Chemise) greeted my wife & me as if we were friends, and thanked us for having chosen to dine at Le Chemise. The menu is in French (which my wife & I do not speak or read at all), so Fabien took the time to explain each and every course to us.
As we often do, we shared a first course, choosing the prawn ravioli in a light red curry sauce. This dish was sublime, with the ravioli cooked to perfection, the prawns firm and fresh, with the curry adding flavour but not overwhelming the prawns.
Fabien highly recommended the fresh fish of the day, so both my wife & I ordered this as our mains, and we weren't disappointed. The filets of sea bass were beautifully presented, and accompanied with fresh asparagus which had been cooked perfectly, and added to the visual appearance of the meal.
Service was exemplary, and the wine list offered good choice, and great value for money.
Le Chemise is proof-positive that you don't always need to dine at a Michelin-starred restaurant to get outstanding food, excellent service, and an EXCEPTIONAL dining experience.
Thank you Fabien and team...!
