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 …

Kieran Murphy – Dingle


Keep it up Denis! Another fabulous meal enjoyed tonight. Greetings from Murphys Ice Cream in Dingle.

B MacC – Macroom


The brownie and ice-cream I had today was the best dessert I ever had in Ireland. The brownie was so light and yet so voluptuous in texture and the ice-cream was so creamy, not a hint of a frosty texture. I can’t wait for your recipe book to arrive in the post so I can try recreating it!

Lauren S – Newfoundland


I ate here several times in early 2006 with my travelling companion and we agree it was by far the best food we’d eaten in Cork! Can’t wait to come back some day!

Andrew Fraser – Dublin


Please, please open a branch in Dublin. I have two of your cookbooks. I love your recipes. Dublin really needs a Cafe Paradiso!

Emer & Jan – Germany


Thanks for a lovely stay during the Film Festival. Pity it was so short but we’ll be back;)
Breakfast was a treat with lovely service.

Matthew Dooley – Malvern


I loooooooooovvvvvvve Cafe Paradiso from when I worked in Cork 3-4 years ago. I have been back twice since then and plan to do it many times more

Judy Collins – Davenport,


I come from grandparents who immigrated from Ireland. They loved vegetables and always had their garden even into their 90s. This brings me closer to them.

Rachel Cotter – Dungarvan


My son and daughter-in-law took me to your restaurant for my birthday and it was sheer bliss. I will be back to you again. I also love your books

Gina – Melbourne,


Well Denis it may be late Summer in Ireland but it is early spring here in Victoria. Thank goodness for your many ways with pumpkin. It is a vegetable I’ve never really understood but your Pumpkin Gnocchi with Garlic Cream, that I’ve just made, salivated over and devoured, was sublime. All praise to you and my Irish mother-in-law who sent me your book!

ian nethery – Tasmania


love your cook books. Having a vego wife it can be difficult to cook for all the family but your recipes solve this problem as even the biggest meat eaters love the food.Thanks.

Darren and Cathy – Ballymena


Yet again we had a fabulous time at Paradiso last weekend. We brought a couple of meat eaters and they were blown away by the food. My Sister and her family finally got dow to Cork to eat at Paradiso and thus the benchmark was set for all food from now on. Paradiso is paradise indeed.

Darren and Cathy – County


We ate in Paradiso last Friday and Saturday evening. Food heaven for us. So happy to visit again, it has been two years since we last visited. We brought some friends on Saturday and they were amazed that food with no meat could be so fantastic. They wouldn’t take us at our word so we had to introduce them to the delight that is Cafe Paradiso.

orit schwartz – los


the best meal we had in cork. if this restaurant had a location in los angeles, we’d go once a week!

Maria O’Dwyer & Brian Douglas – Killiney,


Just returned from a terrific weekend, thanks so much. We are both committed carnivores but tempted to convert…Food was sublime (Best breakfast ever!)and wonderful friendly staff. Can’t wait to return
