My husband and i had a lovely meal, food was good and staff were very friendly. Great atmosphere, stayed till 2am. Will definately be going back soon.
This is about the sixth time I have visited Paradox and the second time I have had the £5 Sunday lunch. The food is fantastic, I cannot believe what good value the Sunday lunch is. I had the chicken and it was delicious. The service and ambience are also first class. I cannot fault it.
We have eaten here before and the food and service was very good. However, on this occasion we waited over half an hour between starter and mains. We could see our meals waiting under the heat lights at the service area, but no one brought them to us. Eventually our meals arrived and the seafood platter I was presented with was shrivelled and dry. The tortilla basket was flat and rubbery and the fish was so dry it was stringy and inedible. The waiter did said he would bring fresh fish but left the rest of the meal on my wooden serving " plate". By the time the replacement food was brought back my husband and I had already finished our meals and so I was presented with a small plate of the fish but we it was too late as neither of us were in the mood to begin eating again. There was a cursory apology for the experience but nothing which felt genuine or showed any real concern. We did not leave a tip. Such a pity, as I had previously told friends and family how good this restaurant was, but I feel I can no longer do so.
Long drinks and Sunday roasts both with a twist? A menu that boasts both robust British and sunkissed Mediterranean dishes? All of this and more can be found at Paradox, a bar and bistro-style restaurant along Pensby Road in Heswall, a destination for locals looking for relaxation and refinement from all across the Wirral. The drinks list is extensive and award-winning, while the food – the food – is simply incredible.
While Paradox is a popular party spot for Wirral residents thanks to its impeccable sense of style and multiple spaces available for private hire, it’s the food that keeps the good people of Heswall coming back for more. Typical starters include the twice-cooked pork belly topped with seared scallops and served with a pea puree, while modern British classics like the pork, apple and black pudding pie and traditional Mediterranean dishes like the wild mushroom and asparagus linguine make for a satisfying meal. Alternatively, go for a Paradox platter – meat, seafood, or Mediterranean – to share among friends with drinks.
