Guestbook? Very 1997 that, you say. Well, this one’s been around that long and we’ve loved receiving and publishing feedback from around the world. If you’re more inclined towards the busy high street of all things webby, go to our Tripadvisor page to have your say. On the other hand, if you have a fondness for the old-school or a tendency to the quietly retro, do please post a message here. Go on …Sign the guestbook
2017-06-20Having just spent the weekend of our wedding anniversary in your fabulous room and ate in your excellent restaurant,I wanted to write this review. We have eaten in your restaurant before and 6 months later were delighted to be served by the same lovely unpretentious staff. The food was excellent of course. This is the first time we have been lucky enough to reserve the accommodation upstairs and I already want to stay again. Perfect,luxurious without trying too hard,just a pleasure. Fine attention to detail and breakfast was a treat. Already want to come back. Love Paradiso, Cork would not be the same without it.
2016-10-25Thank you for such a lovely night. My big number birthday wish was to go to where my favorite cook book came from and my fabulous friends (only 1 other vegetarian) came too with trips from 4 different airports in the UK . Perfect food and lots of smiles - nothing disappointed.
2016-06-08My husband ‘s family live in Macroom so we have been visiting your restaurant since the kids were small. I love it and have never been disappointed , I especially love that you’re still very much at the top of your game , well done.
2016-05-10Amazing restuarant. Had an aubergine dish on 4 April 2016. I would love the recipe if you would be so kind as to share it
2016-04-13We had dinner at your restaurant last night and I compared your food to a restaurant that we had eaten at in Rome as being on a par with the same, the restaurants name that at the time I could not bring to mind is called the Margutta Ristorarte. Thank you again for your lovely food.
2016-04-11Had one of the best meals I’ve ever eaten last year when I came to Cafe Paradiso. Unexpectedly passing through Cork on Friday and so disappointed I can’t have lunch with you! Look forward to coming back one day.
Just made your goats’ cheese and oven roasted tomato charlotte with puy lentils, wilted greens and polenta-delicious and very filling. Ta.
Had dinner at Cafe Paradiso last Thursday night and myself (a veggie) and my husband (who is not) were blown away by the delicious meal we had. Still raving about it and looking forward to cooking some of the recipes on your website. Thanks again for a fabulous dining experience!
Great vegetarian food, lots of choice. Will visit again when next in Cork ☺️
Thank you for a sublime meal last night. Chris Stout Catriona McKay and me. A perfect end to a busy day. We loved every morsel. Much continued success!- Barry
Just wanted to say I had dinner on Wed night and it was one of the best meals i’ve had at your fine establishment. And I’ve had lots!
Any chance you’d reconsider opening on Saturdays for lunch?
I love your restaurant but being the owner of a small child I don’t get out much!
Saturday afternoon lunch (without said child) would be wonderful!
Just throwing it out there!
All the best,
Thanks so much for the recipe blog – great for dinner party inspiration! We’ve got 2 of your books and been lucky to take 2 trips to Cork to eat at your restaurant. We will be back at Paradiso before long – Love it!
We discovered your wonderful restaurant by chance on a visit to Cork in 1996. We bought the Paradiso Seasons book when it was first published and have enjoyed many of the recipes. Today, in need of inspiration for our mangetout glut I turned once again to your book. I was not disappointed and summer stew it will be but what struck me most was the modernity of the book. All my other recipe books of similar date now look very outdated – yours is contemporary, vibrant and very inspiring. Bravo
We ate at Paradiso Friday 10th July. It’s about the best best veggie food I’ve ever had. Thanks for squeezing us in before we headed off to see Chic.
See you next time we’re back in Cork city.
