Amazing

Not much more to say other than great wine, great cheese and the best service in Croatia. The waiter spoke good English and conversed so well. He was knowledgable, friendly and fun. Superb!

It wasn't just the wine selection, appetizers, cheese offerings or location - It was the the well informed, professional staff that took ourexperience to a higher level than the other wine bars we visited in Croatia (11). Also, the cost and value were remarkable. We will always return to Paradox.

Ordered a Posip Stina out of Brac and a Grk bire from Lumbarda on Korcula. Both were very good and the wait staff was very helpful.

Turned out a little different from what we expected. Doesn't look fancy but offers delicious platters and wines. Like most places in Split, outdoor seating was the main area, warm yellow-orange lighting; simple but nice. The main put-off was the live band which was BAD. But the wine and cheese more than made up for the average ambiance. The staff... More

We went there after a long day walking around in split and it was a very nice discover. Waiter was more than great. Very friendly but professional. Just by us there was a group of 9 that was very complicated, changing and not knowing what to order, but he was dealing with themy very good. Conclusion : recommend :-)

Visited this place twice in a week when on holiday - superb wine and cheese selection, waiters incredibly attentive and informative over wine selections. Great value for money would definitely return if back in Split!

We were a little surprised by the prices when given the menu - easily the most expensive we saw while in Croatia - but the service was friendly and we took their recommendations. Cheeses served with jams were OK but we did expect more. Above all it lacked atmosphere, everyone else there seemed to be underwhelmed too.

The staff is friendly and had a thorough knowledge of their products. I have tried several different wines and they were delicious. The menu is organized by flavor and, when in doubt, the staff makes excellent recommendations (both for the wines and the cheese). Perfect place to try some local wines!

Very good cheese menu. Wine menu is ok but not extensive. Knowledgable, friendly and efficient stall. Definitely worth a visit for wine and cheese lovers.
