“A culinary delight!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2014

We loved eating at Care Paradiso. The staff was wonderful and welcoming, the physical layout was comfortable and fun and the food was absolutely delicious. Coming from San Francisco where gourmet restaurants on on every corner, we felt very much at home at Cafe Paradiso. The bonus was this was just around the corner from our hotel.

“A FORTUNATE STOP”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2014

Pulled the car over, popped in to look at the menu, that was it. Seated in minuets by efficient polite staff. Menu more varied than first thought for a mid day meal, be that the start, the middle or the end. Both meals arrived quickly and exactly as stated on the menu and were perfectly cooked. We sat outside as it was a sunny winter day and the table location allowed a good view of the surroundings. We noticed that inside there was an excellant salad table where you can mix and match. A resteraunt feature that is getting harder to find. Wi-Fi is available but we had no need to use it. Car parking is on street and can be difficult to find at busy times.

“Great atmosphere and food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014

Cafe Paradiso is another one of the Madame Zingara gems. You are immediately greeted by friendly staff and the rustic decor is very homely and welcoming.
The food is amazing and there is something for everyone.
We went there for our anniversary and it is definitely a great place for a special occasion!

“Cafe Paradiso CT”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2014 via mobile

An antique riddled cosy setting with friendly staff,and an impressive Table d'hôte ( À la carte also available). The only problem experienced was the long wait for the main and incorrect meat temperatures. But keen and attentive staff made up for these small disappointments.Thanks to all at Cafe Paradiso CT for an enjoyable evening
