Chefs.

The chef Michel Portos (two Michelin stars and Chef of the year in 2012 by the Gault & Millau) and chef Erik Marchesan share their passion for cooking but mostly their strong belief to elaborate a fine cuisine based on a subtle and well thought combination of simple ingredients. Alongside Michel and Erik, you will experience astonishing, rich and hearty flavors.

Didon.

Didon was the legendary founder and first queen of Carthage. Today, the restaurant Didon is located in the heart of Paris and specifically in the exquisite 6th district. In a setting that is both stylish and cosy, you will discover the bistronomie at its best, with subtle and creative dishes highlighting noble ingredients and flavors with state of the art charcoal grilling techniques.

For the thirst
