Café Paradiso is probably the finest vegetarian restaurant we have been to anywhere, really. My husband and I did our usual sharing of dishes so that we had our own little degustation going on. The array of loveliness we indulged in was: warm salad of sprouting broccoli, honey roasted aubergine, knockalara sheep’s cheese, chillies, pomegranate, citrus dressing; tartlet of caramelised beetroot and bluebell falls fresh goat’s cheese, salsa verde and olive crushed potato; feta, pistachio and couscous cake with sweet and hot pepper jam, wilted greens, spiced chickpeas and coriander yoghurt; pan fried oyster mushrooms in cider butter on a braised cabbage timbale of roast celeriac, fennel, red onion and pecans with parsnip chips. I challenge even the most die-hard carnivore NOT to like these dishes!!
The service was a lovely combination of knowledgeable professionalism and relaxed friendliness. The decor was French bistro with Irish undertones, and the music was the perfect soundtrack to a romantic evening. It really was a special meal.
