Description: Paradox is a modern wine bar & lounge, with an amazing rooftop terrace, set in the historic center of Split just dozens of meters from the Riva waterfront.
Reviewed 28 September 2018

Paradox is a modern wine bar located less than 5 minutes’ walk from Diocletian’s Palace and just steps from Split’s waterfront. Dozens of wines are available to taste by the glass. Paradox promises to deliver the “ultimate Dalmatian wine experience” for oenophiles – a 45 to 90 minute food and wine pairing consisting of a selection of domestic and imported cheeses, prosciutto, seafood (dried, salted or marinated), quiche and homemade bread. Four tapas, each expertly paired with a different wine (2.5 ounces each), runs 37 Euros; 5 tapas and 5 wines (the best deal) is 43 Euros; while 6 tapas paired with 6 wines costs 50 Euros. If this sounds a little pricey, we chose the 4 tapas/4 wines option (consuming 40% of a 750 milliliter bottle of wine in the process) and it more than served as a full gourmet lunch.

Read the reviews so was down for some wine tasting. I must admit I know a lot more about beer than wine so a bit apprehensive as out of my comfort zone. Don’t worry...go! The waiter was extremely knowledgeable and took us on a tour of the countries wines. We had a three varieties mixed cheese plate and a prosciutto plate. With his guidance we honed in on what we liked wine wise. It was so good we went back the next day. We came away knowledgeable and we are now ordering bottles of wine like we know what we are doing. Ozujsko...whatever! Croatian wine from Paradox on...thanks for the education.

We found this place via TripAdvisor and it was awesome! Marco was our server and he was amazing! We asked for a local wine flight and he gave us four great wines. Highly recommend the local cheese and meat plates. This is definitely worth a visit!

My wife and I found this wonderful restaurant close to our Air B&B just outside of Old Town. The weather was perfect for the rooftop seating with great ambiance. The tapas style food we had was delicious. What was also great though was the staff. Our waiter / upstairs bar tender had great love for and deep knowledge of his country's food and wine. Even though the restaurant was relatively busy, he made us feel like houseguests and the only people in the restaurant. It was a learning experience as well as a great dining experience.
