Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Having stumbled upon their sister restaurant Hebe for lunch the previous day, we booked here for our last night in Paris, and the dinner was wonderful in every way. Didon is based on freshly-grilled courses, often large and intended for sharing, so as only a couple we didn't get to taste as many things as we would have liked, but what we did have was excellent. The starters were a wonderful blend of tastes, such as the grilled artichoke hearts with turnips and pomegranate. The Angus beef was enormous and also grilled to perfection, and while we were completely sated, the owner gave us a delicious poached plum desert. Our waiter was excellent, and helped us select a lovely bottle of wine to accompany our meal. This restaurant is a real gem, and will be on the top of my list on my next trip to Paris.

I visited this establishment with 2 friends and a big appetite, it is fair to say that each of us left satisfied. We were given a warm welcome by the owner and staff. The decor is both humble and inviting with a good view into the kitchen. The portions are all very sizeable and meant to be shared. The dishes are well presented and come with an unexpected twist such as a fresh herb emulsion accompanying the potimarron or pomegranate with grilled chou-fleur. The meats are of course the stars of the show. Having tried the beef, lamb, and duck, it is hard to pick a favourite. I recommend the beef as the accompanying sauce elevates the taste to greater heights! The fries also meet that expected level of excellence and are some of the crunchiest I have ever tried. If you have room left for dessert try the pain perdu, the caramel will make an impression. Lastly, the knowledgeable waiter is quick to recommend a sensible choice of wine for the evening along with a fine digestive. Truly a refreshing discovery in the heart of Paris, made to be shared.

In a nutshell: Out of 4 tables directly around us, 3 complained several times and left clearly disappointed. I am not sure whether this deserves a 2-digit ranking among nearly 18k restaurants in Paris. We visited Didon with 4 people and had the beef and the lamb shacks, both to share. The meat was mostly very good (but not perfect), the sides were ok. Portions were by far sufficient. The price would have been justified with equivalent service. The "chocolate" dessert tasted well but the name is misleading as there was very little chocolate in the mousse, mostly cream and a lot of other stuff coming with it (sorbet, blackberry sauce, ...). But not bad... The other dessert "pineapple" was a creative combination with goat cheese that 2 of us shared. Even though we are both "foodies", we left it uneaten after a few spoons because we didn't like the combination. Creative is not always good. There were 2 problems with service however: 1) The service lady was either new or just not trained well. She hadn't asked how we want the beef cooked so it arrived rare and we had to send it back to have it cooked medium. She forgot about the bottle of wine so we had to remind her. As a result, the wine didn't arrive until the main course had already been served. 2) The maximum number of very small tables has been crammed into this small restaurant. Not only is it uncomfortable to sit so close to other people (Covid) but the kitchen also doesn't seem to be equipped for this number of guests. This resulted in very long waiting times, in particular for the dessert. It seemed that people who complained then got stuff faster. Hm...

Waiter and staff lovely. We were allowed to try a few wines and the one we chose was excellent (Petit baal 2019). The pluma was very good. The ‘canette’ was good. That s the positive. We had Mulet for entree, fresh but not tasty, and the sauce was bitter, due to the onion sitting too long. Had to wait forever for main course, pluma and canette. Good but nothing earth shattering. Baba for desert, not good and dry. After eating half we decided to ask for Rum- prompt reaction they brought a bottle and apologized for forgetting to add it. Very disappointing sauce, basically diluted rum and water. My strawberries disappointing. Neighbours both side similar experiences, we bonded! The attitude is right but they need to put their act together. Not good enough at 180 Euros for two.

The best restaurant I have been to in Paris. Food is delicious, friendliest service I experienced in the city, and the owner is always present asking about the experience which I found really kind. Without forgetting the delicious deserts as well (Baba au Rhum). In summary, highly recommended and excellent restaurant.

A amazing cosy fine dinning inexpensive restaurant, without any doubt among the very best novelties in Paris. It represents the new Paris the city that keeps recreating itself. the best lamb chops with magical well spiced and seasoned sauce and an outstanding escargot with a magical recipy. The canette is great, actually everything on the menu is a gateway to a heavenly fine dining at reasonable rates. A rare Rolex Daytona for the price of a swatch

Didon restaurant was a delightful experience, and I can definitely recommend it as one of the most romantic restaurants in Paris. We had the most beautiful and creative dishes served by extraordinary kind and approachable waiters, who recommended the perfect wine for us. The light is a bit dimmed, and gives the restaurant a calm and pleasant vibe. The share food options were amazing, and the restaurant offers a large selections of wines too. You don’t wanna miss out on this little gem in Paris

Our experience at the Didon restaurant was unfortunately far from satisfactory. We were seated in the upstairs section, where the ambiance felt stressed and the service rushed. Despite being a French/Lebanese fusion restaurant, none of the Lebanese wines on the menu were available, and the recommended Greek wine turned out to be Italian. To add to the disappointment, we ordered two starters but were served only one to share. While the starter was tasty, the main dish, a Tomahawk steak cooked rare, was a disaster. Not only was it served cold on a cold platter, but upon informing our waitress, it was simply reheated, resulting in overcooked, chewy meat. Paying 154 Euros for a ruined Tomahawk steak left a bitter taste in our mouths. Additionally, the lack of communication between the front desk and the waitress was concerning. Despite expressing our disappointment on leaving, we have yet to hear from the restaurant regarding their promised follow-up. Unfortunately, based on our experience, we cannot recommend Didon to others.

We had an absolutely wonderful dinner! We chose Didon because they had dishes for vegan, vegetarian and meat eaters; choices, not just one dish. Everything we had was delicious including the lamb and mushrooms for vegans. I had Saint-Nectaire for dessert, but once I tasted my husband’s brownie I knew he had made a winning choice. We were told that there extensive wine list was available by the glass because of a unique corking procedure. We took full advantage and sampled 4 wines that were great. Our server was attentive and gave us personal attention. The dining room is small so I recommend making reservations. This is our new favorite restaurant in Paris!

Andreas & Pascal served us and were so friendly but at the same time so professional. Chatty and engaging in a very welcoming manner. Both guys knew the menu and recommendations were spot on but I’d expect that there is nothing on the menu which could be faulted. As a vegan it was a proper treat to have options available on the menu without having to give advance notice or even enquire prior to reserving I had the zucchini entree and mushroom main, both I cannot recommend enough but I would say you have to try the mushrooms what was created was perfect. My partner had the asparagus salad and the swordfish and again he was so surprised by the simplicity but yet the flavours achieved. Dessert, strawberries with cream and basil syrup and a roasted peach, sorbet and almond milk sauce faultless. The service perfect, the food perfect and the atmosphere perfect. If you are close by do not miss out you will be spoilt. I am looking forward to a return visit. Thank you Didon Team!!!

We've had 2 lovely meals at Didon, and are very much looking forward to going back! Excellent service, excellent location, excellent ambience. The menu is unique without being pretentious. And the food is delicious! My daughter especially appreciated that they have vegan options for every course. I tried her food and while I'm not vegan, I also appreciated that the items she ordered were just as original and well-thought-out as our choices.

Didon was one of the restaurants that we wanted to visit on our trip to France and we were greatly rewarded. The service is very welcoming here and the entire staff went out of their way to make sure that we were enjoying our meal and were very excited about the food that they were serving. They have a wonderful selection of different kinds of foods to choose from so we decided to try their vegetarian selection. Their wine list is fantastic as well. We started with a bottle of Gevrey-Chambertain from Bourgonge and then moved on to our dinner items which began with a wonderful gazpacho made from red peppers and watermelon followed by grilled eggplant, zucchini and lettuce. The flavors were fabulous. We finished off our meal with a nice cheese selection. This is one of the best places to dine in Paris and we'll be coming back on our next trip.

Fabulous experience, great service, excellent wine and even better food. It was by far our best experience during our trip to France. The ambience of the restaurant is amazing, it’s not too big but the open kitchen sparkles the vibe. We ordered quite a lot of plates since it was 5 of us and we love sharing food. Our favourite starters were courgettes, asparagus and beef tartare, beautiful presentation and excellent taste. Beef tartare especially blew us away, served on the grilled bone marrow. Soooo gooood… For mains, I would highly recommend prawns, moules, pork and steak. Everything was cooked to perfection, amazing seasoning and flavours, side dishes were also excellent, especially the eggplant. Although we were full, we couldn’t say no to a dessert and here - again - 5* experience, they were nice and refreshing after a big dinner, using seasonal fruits and very flavorsome. Staff was fabulous, very knowledgeable, giving good recommendations and unlike in other restaurants in Paris - really friendly and giving to guests a lot attention. Wine selection was very good. We will surely visit Didon next time when in Paris.
