Paradiso guestbook


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 …

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 All my other recipe books of similar date now look very outdated – yours is contemporary, vibrant and very inspiring.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.

I was recently visiting from Australia and all I can say is that your food and service was excellent. I’ve already started planning my next visit and intend on ordering your cook books. Thanks for an amazing “food” experience!

Dear Denis,
thanks to your brilliant receipe books my cooking skills have improved to a level where my husband and our friends started praising the outcome of my kitchen efforts. I can’t thank you enough for enriching my brain with your ideas and for making the life of a long-time vegetarian truly tasty and exciting. I hope that one day we’ll have the pleasure of experiencing the real thing in your restaurant too. Until then I shall keep a look out for your next awesome book. Kind regards. Laura

We had the most delicious dinner at your restaurant while visiting Ireland last week. We altered our itinerary so we could have dinner at Cafe Paradiso and it was the food highlight of our holiday! Thank you from Pam, Annie & Mollyanne

We travelled to Cork specially to eat at Paradiso and had two fabulous dinners and bought two more books. Thank you for extraordinary culinary delights. I don’t suppose you would share the recipe for those peanut cracker things that came with the olives?

Can I just say OMG! Thank you so much to all the staff for what can only be described as the most amazing birthday surprise ever. Having a birthday on Valentines Day has always been tricky in terms of having a nice meal out but Cafe Paradiso superseded all my birthday expectations. Being a native of Cork I always knew the restaurant existed but just never managed to eat there. I’m not a vegetarian but that did nothing to detract from my enjoyment of the amazing food on offer! I cannot thank you guys enough and especially the staff who were on duty 14th February who made my birthday very special and definately one to remember.

Congrats on 20 years! I first went to your restaurant in the summer of 1994 when I was 17 & studying at UCC – and a little surprised to find vegetarian fare steps away. I was so excited to recently learn about how fabulously you have done over the years!
