Pleasant setting having our cheese and wine on the rooftop of the Paradox. The young waitress was very knowledgeable about the origins of the delicious wines and cheeses and also the meats we enjoyed.

Sat at a small table overlooking quiet street. Huge menu; surprised to see French wines on it, given the great range available in Croatia. Server told us about several of the selections; Chose 2 to nurse for an hour before dinner.
