It has taken me too long to write this review, but I can still remember the visit to Paradox well enough to comment. First of all this is not really a restaurant. It is a wine bar with excellent accompaniments. The most memorable thing about our visit was the outstanding service. The waiter was extremely helpful, attentive and friendly. He... More

Our waiter recommended some great red wines for us to try and cheeses to go along with them. I'm glad that we took his recommendations as the wine and cheese were... More

Having read the TA reviews, we decided to visit, and it was fantastic. Very knowledgeable and friendly staff, and certainly made us feel very welcome. We enjoyed so much, we visited twice more during our stay in Split. Also, if you enjoy this venue, you must visit Paradigma too... Stunning overall experience.
