“Stunning view, friendly service”
Reviewed 22 January 2013

Paradiso, always comes up trumps, service is friendly and efficient, Toward the end of the South African summer the wind drops and you can enjoy dining al fresco , with views of Walker Bay to die for and of course the passing parade of tourists and locals alike. Inside the ambience is warm and convivial.The restaurant attracts a mixed clientele,and you'll always find German tourists. The pizzas are good and have a thin base. Can definitely recommend the butternut and blue cheese. There is a good selection of salads. To finish off would definitely go for the Belgian chocolate ice cream.
The setting is great and you'll get value for money.

“Disappointing”
Reviewed 5 January 2013 via mobile

Nice venue and food was ok. Disappointed with the service, left main ingredient off the pizza I ordered and when I pointed it out they just brought it on a side plate instead of taking back the pizza and doing it properly

“Shambles”
Reviewed 1 January 2013

Booked a table for dinner on 1 January 2013 turned up at 8pm to find restaurant closed, what makes it particularly frustrating is that I booked at 3pm that same day in the restaurant itself and watched waiter write the reservation down!
