“Wine, cheese, and fun. We loved it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

We six called in for a wine and cheese before our evening meal, and ended up back again for coffee (and another bottle of wine) on the way home. It was fun, with a great and knowledgeable host providing excellent service and wine advice, the setting is great for people watching despite its backstreet location, the wine and cheese were both beautiful, the coffee was fine.

Service, quality, value for money, and fun. Well worth the visit.

“What a lovely spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013 via mobile

A friendly host who was very knowledgable - we enjoyed a lovely red wine from nearby hvar with some tasty tapas.
A lovely spot to enjoy local produce and watch the world go by. Worth it's ratings.

“Best illy coffee and cappuccino in Split!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Paradox is a wine & cheese bar and a great one at that, but what they need to be recognized for as well as is their coffee. They serve Italian illy coffee and their barista makes a great cappuccino. It is a place that we frequent regularly and the quality and consistency are to be commended.
