Paradox offers a comprehensive wine list featuring some of the best wines from Dalmatia & Croatia as well as unique selection of cheeses, charcuterie and delicatessen. The wine list features more than 100 labels of which at least 50 are available by the glass. Set in the historical surrounding of Split, Paradox, is a contemporary bar showcasing both the traditional and modern. Elm and oak furniture are set against exposed old stone and brick walls, highlighted with subtle lighting. The cozy and intimate atmosphere in the bar is contrasted by a modern cafe style terrace on the bustling square, only a stone's throw away from Diocletian's Palace.

“Awesome Wine & Cheese Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

My wife and I were very pleased with our visit to this gem in Split. The waiting staff was very knowledgeable about the product and the service was excellent.

Coming from Canada, where we have some of the finest cheeses and wines in the world, it was very delightful to experience the same in Croatia.

Wine selection was top shelf, cheese was very good and the atmosphere was excellent. It is certainly a recommended stop for us.

Hoping your experience is as positive as ours was.

“Yea, Paradox is pretty darn awesome”

Great place to spend an afternoon tasting wine and cheeses. If you reserve in advance l(like a day or two) you can arrange a wine tasting experience with food pairings. Wonderful wait staff.

“Lovely”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2014

Really nice clean looking wine bar just off one of the main squares. Wine delicious, chosen for us by the guy who works there - good choices - he was obviously very knowledgeable about his Croatian wines. Definitely worth a visit (or two).

“Fabulous wine and cheese”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2014

Paradox was a great little spot. Chasing some good Croatian wine and to try the local produce was on our to do list. The wine list was impressive and the waiter was excellent explaining the different wines. We selected our own cheeseboard and there was only 1 recommendation the waiter made for us so we chose the "red wine"cheese after his suggestion, it was fabulous and ended up being a favourite! Prices extremely reasonable and we left very satisfied!
