Brilliant service, gorgeous wine, yummy cheese, lovely prosciutto... No complaints whatsoever. Don't come here if you're ravenous though- its a light snacky dinner.

We are both food lovers and we saw how many people had said it was amazing on here. So when we visited Paradox we were not dissapointed. Amazing cheese, in particular the truffle one. Wine that is matched. On the street so you can chat, people watch, sip quality red wine and eat glorious cheese. Yum Yum.

Four of us stopped in for "lunch". They do know the local and regional wines, so describe what taste you like and they will bring a similar type local wine. great way to explore new wine! We paired with a cheese plate and the prosciutto plate, all very good.
