Paradox wine bar offers variety of wines. Although prices are quite high, wine lovers should not skip this bar during visiting Split. It is located near to National theater, close to RIVA and within city center. Recommended.

Visited Paradox with a couple of friends for New Year's day. They have a huge selection of local wines and cheeses and very knowledgeable staff. Not all the wines on the list were in the selection, so we took a suggestion from the waiter which was on point. Good atmosphere, music and setting. Definitely coming back.

Nice place if you like cheese and wine. The selection of wines is really nice, but at some point quite expensive. Cheese was really nice but the portions were a little small if that's all you plan to have. Really nice location, and lovely staff. The wine selection was the best.

The first thing that we noticed was the very polite and knowledgeable waiter. First of all he gave us enough time to decide before coming to ask for our order, when he came to take our order he commented on what the order would entail and how the wine and cheeses would complement each other. As the order arrived, he... More

Enjoyed a platter of "Pag" cheeses with some excellent Croatian wine. Went for a quick drink and stayed the evening.

My friends and I visited this place on a quiet November afternoon. It was just us, so the waiter was kind enough to extensively explain the wines and cheeses. We all loved what we had! Great place to stop in and hang out. It's really only a snack, so I wouldn't come expecting a meal... I would definitely go here... More

Great selection of wine and cheese here, with great recommendations from our waiter. The only downside was when we had visited this place earlier in the week, they were rather busy but they made sure you knew about it and we didn't feel comfortable enough to take a seat as we thought the waiter at that time was rude. However,... More
