It was fabulous. This was not our first visit to this restaurant, but this was the best visit. Trilogy of cheese from three different countries together with red Croatian wine made the evening perfect. Sitting inside was a better choice.

We visited on a quiet Friday night in November. We were the only customers in the bar... However the service, food and wine were amazing.. We actually felt lucky for it to be that way. You could only imagine this place in summer... We will return to check it out! Make sure you try the Paradox trilogy (cheese platter), with... More

A good wine list (I am not a wine expert but I know a modest amount about wine) but the real attraction is the excellent menu of cheeses, jams, and other goodies to accompany the glasses. EXCELLENT, well-informed service. Charming atmosphere. We sat outside on a gorgeous evening.

We stayed at Magnolia luxury apartments for 4 nights in August 2014 and was recommended to go to Paradox. What a fantastic place to go to if you are interested in and love wine! We went there every single night and was amazed every night by our wine waiter who introduced us to excellent Croatian wines: every night different, red,... More

A very good wine bar with so much choice there has to be a bad wine, although we had our list, provided earlier, from Konoba Marijan, so we didn't find one! We didn't eat there but the cheese boards looked fine but nothing spectacular. Not sure why it has such a high ranking?

Our group was looking for a place to taste wines before we purchased wines for our weeklong gulet trip. The Wine & Cheese Bar Paradox was recommended to us. After arriving, it became apparent that this was more of a restaurant than a wine bar and they really didn't have "tastings" per se. Having said that, they were more than... More

This is a great place to stop and have a glass (or two) of local wine with cheese and some "bites".just on the Old Town side of the theater and Palace. The selection of quality Croatian wines is excellent and the konobar (waiter) can provide explicit information about them. Atmosphere is welcoming and you can people watch as you enjoy... More

The staff were excellent - very well informed and told us about the history of the wines and cheeses. Enjoyed the Local cheese trio selection with wonderful "jams" the air dried ham was really tasty especially with... More
