Loved the previous books that have me, among others, cooking kale whenever I can get my hands on it. I had heard how good the food was. Glad to have been able to avail of the mid-week B&B offer in November 2007. Two dinners and two breakfasts = 4 perfect meals in a row. Lovely, friendly welcoming staff. Very cosmopolitan clientèle when we were there. Stayed in the beautiful red room and appreciated the room to roam, the Scrabble, books, stereo, absence of TV. Breakfasts were amazing and copious: do plan a long walk afterwards. We needed a relaxing break and got it. On top of that we felt extremely well looked after in a gentle and understated way. The six copies of the new book that I bought have gone to good homes. Lovely read – inspiring and makes me (and I know that’s a mistake) want to get out there and plant some greens or find someone to do it for me. The first recipe I tried (beetroot tabbouleh) was easy to make, visually attractive and very tasty. Congratulations to Denis Cotter and all the staff for the great things you are doing (and to your growers – I am truly impressed). And a heartfelt thank you for such an enjoyable break.

My boyfriend and I spent three nights at Cafe Paradiso during our recent trip to Ireland, and let me say, it far exceded our expectations!
The rooms are huge and so comfortable. (love the French Press, by the way)
The food…both breakfast and dinner are AMAZING…even our cold breakfast one morning was just fantastic! I don’t think I’ll be able to go back to my favorite brunch restaurant in my home town…it just doesn’t compare!
Thank you so much Denis, and Staff, for making our stay possible and being so accomodating…we had a wonderful stay!

We had the good fortune to have lunch and dinner (separate days)at Cafe Paradiso recently, combined with staying several days at Gort na Nain, the guesthouse run by Lucy and Ultan, Paradiso’s organic veg suppliers. We can think of no better way to enjoy a stay in Cork. Diolch yn fawr i chi.

We will be in Cork 9-13-2008 and will be by for lunch. I will make a reservation in about a year. We heard of you through Jay & Pat Bainbridge, neighbors of ours. Best regards!

We entered this restaurant wanting to avoid “the fish and chips” irish dish. My hursband and I were with our 3 children. We were wonderfully welcomed and the food was so good we asked if irish people could realise their luck. Each of our children (5,7 and 10)asked a second plate of pasta. It had never happened before. I will recommend cafe paradiso to every people intending to go to Ireland. It worth going from everywhere in Ireland. Thank you.

I am coming to cafe paradiso with friends on saturday to celebrate my 30th birthday (assuming the wonderful ultan has booked us in!). We are making the trip from various locations in england to enjoy the fine veggie fare of dennis and his team. I am sooooooooooo excited and will let you know what the food is like! We’re staying at the gort-na-nain guesthouse which has a link on this website- check it out, they are lovely.

My boyfriend and I visited your restaurant last Saturday afternoon and I can honestly say it was THE most delicious meal that I have ever tasted! Your staff were wonderful, the food was delicious and it was just so nice to sit outside (even when it was raining!). Next time we visit Cork, we’ll definitely be back! I’ll be recommending your restaurant to everyone I know!!! Thanks, Tara & Nicky
PS – Truffles and Coffee – MMMMmmmmm!

My partner, Alan bought me both books for presents and we LOVE the deepness of flavour each recipe has produced. He is now even growing cavalero negro for me!

Alan is turning 50 late summer and I want to give him a present of staying at the hotel! Am very keen to visit the retaurant and have the experts make the amazing recipes.

We love the books and they give the best tasting vegetarin recipes – WELL DONE!
