Description: Ballsbridge's The French Paradox is the stuff of food legend. Imagine this, you have popped in to buy a bottle of wine from the range of more than 150. Hang on a minute, they offer freshly baked bread too... And cigars, cheeses, oils. It is enough to make your stomach gurgle with longing. And how on earth are you going to choose from those bottles, each one glinting at you cheekily? I suppose you could head for the tasting room and just try a little sip of wine and, seeing as your there, a dish or two from the amazing menu of French tapas-style dishes. A little charcuterie, a few cheeses, perhaps a larger salad or omelette now your stomach is in the mood. Now, what was it you came out for again?

I had two simple lunches at the French Paradox - just the soup of the day and pate. Both were delicious. Food and service were of the highest quality though my order was so modest. Highly recommend.

I've dined in this amazing little Resturant / Wine bar on a number of occasions. Both pre Leinster rugby (who play close by in the RDS arena) with my pals and also when looking for a nice romantic evening with my wife. The standard of food and service always excels. The resturant itself is beautiful, a rustic interior which matches the rustic French food it serves. The wine list is incredible and delicious. Finish with the cheese board if you can manage it.

You could be in a Paris backstreet restaurant this place is so French! Delicious french dishes accompanied by the finest wines served by French men with humour!
