One of those restaurants you'll discover by word of mouth rather than by walking past. Tucked away down Market Lane, Paradiso is a hidden treasure. The restaurant is split into three main floors. The first floor, which is also the main seating floor seats up to 60, has a bar and a spacious outdoor terrace for alfresco dining. The second floor contains the open-plan kitchen and another seating area, which is able to seat up to 50. This floor is smaller than the first floor, but is still capable of holding large parties with ease, and again, we can accommodate parties of any size and number. If you require more privacy, our third floor is a private dining room which can seat up to 45. As this room features skylights, it is a bright, warm space and is spacious enough to be used for any kind of event, such as dining, presentations and so on.

Just visited Paradiso for a evening meal, we went for the three courses. This was our first visit but it certainly won't be our last. The food was superb and so are the staff. A very warm and welcoming restaurant that I would recommend to anyone who is looking for great food and a lovely service.

Delicious food, consistently good quality across the menu and they do a lovely cappucino. Plenty of options for veggies. I wish they had a place at the Coast!

Therefore I was very disappointed to find that the living social offer( £21 for... More

I popped into Paradiso after enjoying my previous visit, this time I was simply after a nice sit down, and a strong cup of coffee. I was made to feel equally welcome, even though I didn't order any food (although I have to say I was a bit envious of the people to my left, who ordered a delicious looking... More

Excellent food and atmosphere. The manager and his staff are very friendly and professional. The menu goes the extra mile and you will find the usual dishes, but also unique ones to meet more particular tastes. Will definitely come back. Children..they had good time with excellent food and a very child friendly staff.

Five of us. Starter; main course; two bottles of wine; plus two glasses of wine; sparkling water; great taste; great service; £25 each – what’s not to like.

Visited Paradiso with my partner for an evening meal special, we are both vegetarian and the selection on the menu was brilliant, I would recommend the vegetarian pizza even to a meat lover! The service at Paradiso is wonderful, very relaxed atmosphere and great wine :) I'll be returning to this restaurant in the near future! The outside terrace is... More
