Café Paradiso

16 Lancaster Quay, Cork, County Cork, Republic of Ireland
Find this good vegetarian restaurant with rooms opposite Lancaster Bridge, close to the River Lee.

Chef Denis Cotter is strong on the imagination stakes offering a seasonal-changing menu offering winter starters, such as 'Chocolate & Chili Soup with Avocado Salsa, Soured Cream & Corn Gougere'; 'Parsnip Ravioli with Roast Portobello, Ginger Brown Butter, Apple Balsamic & Brussel Sprout Leaves' and 'Toonsbridge Buffalo Mozzarella with Sprouting Broccoli, Blood Orange, Pinenut-Fennel Crumb & Chili-Citrus Oil'.

Mains, such as 'Risotto of Salsify with Roast Shallot & Parsley with Cratloe Hills Sheeps Cheese, Braised Fennel & Truffled Sunchoke (Jerusalem Artichoke) Broth'; 'Braised Turnip Galette with Portobello Mushroom & Chestnut Filling, Red Wine Sauce, Potato Mash and Orange & Caraway Brussels Sprouts'; 'Pan-Fried Oyster Mushrooms in Cider Butter with a Braised Cabbage Timbale of Roast Celeriac, Fennel & Pecans and Parsnip Chips' and 'Roast Aubergine Parcels of Spinach & Blue Cheese with Rosemary & Squash Broth, Green Pepper & Candied Walnut Salsa, Mustard Black Beans & Polenta Chips' might follow.

Puds are just as interesting - with perhaps 'Dark Chocolate Silk Cake with Dungarvan Stout Ice Cream & Hazelnut Praline'; 'Rosewater & Honey Baklava with Passion Fruit Syrup & Cardamom Ice Cream' and 'Lemon Curd Tart with Liquorice Ice Cream & Blood Orange Sauce' there to tempt you.

If you are travelling you could plan ahead and stay in one of their comfortable bedrooms.
