We visited Villa Didon for drinks whilst watching the sunset. The Villa has a superb location with 180 degree views from the terrace. This is our first visit to Tunis & it’s such a shame that our visit has been marred by the rudeness of the waiting staff. We waited at least 45 minutes for a waiter to even bring a menu - we approached 2 waiters separately & had to go to reception to complain. 20 minutes later a surly waiter brought menus & even after taking our order he still didn’t bring our drinks. Eventually a third waiter arrived & took our order. MANAGEMENT - WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOUR STAFF!!!! This is a five star location with no star service. I’ve given Villa Didon one star but that’s only for the view. I recommend people to visit, sit & enjoy the view - we took beautiful photos, but don’t bother to try & spend money there & be prepared for sullen service if you do want a drink. They obviously don’t need money. Philanthropy isn’t a very good business model. If the waiting staff hate their jobs & customers so much they should visualise themselves without jobs.

Villa Didon is hip and happening, the interior is modern and trendy and it is the place to be (and to be seen) on a warm summer evening.

Regretfully the food didn’t live up to our expectations. Examples: the steaks were over cooked and not very tender and the appetizer were far from wowing.

Conclusion: a great place for a cocktail but I would not come again for dinner!

Starting with an aperitif on the terrace with beautiful view on the sea shore; or in the nice lounge - the dinner is just perfect.I had dinner there different times and different thing: all perfect! Great service

We popped out around 8;30 pm for a drink. We were a party of 3 ladies...
At the Perchoir , there was two tables free on the terrace ( offering a great view) , asked to be seated, the waiter said it's reserved and no tables are free.
Indoor , same issue, we didnt have to finish our question, we've been told it's reseved....
We tend to give another try outside, those two tables were still free, the first was only for two, the other in the corner for 4,
Finally , we could get this precious one, waited for around 45 mn to have the menu , 20mn for the order and again the same to have our drinks,
By chance, when we decided to leave they popped out,
Waited too for the bill , ended up going to the bar to pay.

I used to like villa didon but seriously they need to work on their service, We dad 1h30 for a drink, we had to drink it quiet fast to leave on time.
I can understand threre was a game and it was full but it's nt a reason ,,,

Would appreciate if you try to fix those issues,,, it's sad if a lovely property like yours looses guests for such reasons,,,

-Everything was great there,,, drinks ,music, view and cleaness and kindness of the staff but service so very very slow and that's the main issue we faced

    • Value
