Respond to Review of Cafe Paradiso
Review: Having been a vegetarian in Cork for the last 7 years, Cafe Paradiso has always been my favourite restaurant. The food is fresh, seasonal and always delicious. Beautiful interior and friendly staff adds to its appeal not only for the veggie community but also curious carnivores. My reluctance to go there in recent times only reflects on my decision to go Vegan. While some items on the menu such as salads can be altered to be served as vegan, the whole menu is geared towards a vegetarian lifestyle which relies heavily on dairy and egg produce. Many of the dishes are cheesy and therefore not suitable for Vegans like myself. I would not fault the restaurant for this as the producers of local vegetables and artisan cheeses influence their primary style. However when looking for vegan food in cork, Cafe Paradiso would not be my first choice anymore. Vegetarians on the other hand will marvel at the presentation and wonderful favours exhibited by the crew of talented chefs.
