This restaurant provides and serves delicious food and an affordable price. Situated in Village Square overlooking Walker Bay, the food and the variety served, matches the environment. The service is excellent, food is served quickly and effortlessly and the dishes are well-prepared. Highly Recommended

What a little gem of a restaurant!! It was a chilly evening and we felt like some pasta to warm us up. We were not disappointed! Highly recommend the alfredo pasta, it was delish! But the menu is so much more than just pizza and pasta. There is something for everyone. Good vibe, good service, great food!

We went in search for a lunch spot on the piazza and with live music playing and beautiful weather we were forced into choosing the only place with an empty table, Paradiso. How lucky we were. Service was great and the food was good. We shared black mussels for starters and found them a little disappointing as I'm used to... More

We found this to be one of three restaurants open for Xmas Eve dinner as we walked through Hermanus. We were pleasantly surprised by this little establishment. The food we had was very good and the fish looked amazing too.

One of very few local restaurants that was open for dinner - very good & friendly service with good tastey food - the Steak Tartar was excellent & made to one's personal taste - a very nice view over Walker Bay with plenty of open air seating as well as comfortable in door seating.

There are a lot of new modern places around Hermanus- so we were glad we chose to eat at Paradiso, in the Old Prison building where you could feel the history of the place. Great friendly service, both when we visited for drinks and later for dinner. Fabulous fresh fish for OH, and I had a great steak and pud.... More
