We seem to go to Belfast restaurants and had forgotten one of our favorites in Lisburn-the square bistro. 4 of us went last night and had one of the best meals in a long time!

We received a voucher at Christmas for this restaurant, somewhere I've always wanted to try and keep forgetting about! So glad we got to visit last night - the food was fantastic, perfect portions and every mouthful was perfectly cooked. The staff are fab too, really friendly and worked the room making sure everyone was taken care of. Really lovely... More

I have visited this small bistro several times and I have never been disappointed. The food is freshly prepared, well cooked and well presented. A great spot for lunch if you are in the vicinity.

We come here for lunch every time we visit Lisburn and are always delighted with the food, service etc. The menus suit all from normal to vegetarian and healthy option which is what I usually go for as it can be difficult to get this when eating out in other places. We particularly like the risotto, fish dishes and Thai... More

I love it when I don't have to season my meal when it comes to the table! Dinner at Square Bistro recently was really very very good. You must book in advance as there is only a small number of tables so weekends especially book up fast. The decor isn't great, but you go to a restaurant to eat! My... More

Was recommended the place by friend and I wasn't disappointed, I had Scallops for starter, pork belly for main, sticky toffee pudding with ice cream and coupious amounts of locally produced cider and Calipso Coffee's. Food was fantastic, atmosphere was nice and relaxed, service was very prompt and professional. Loved and would absolutely recommend it. Hope to be back soon!!... More

We had lunch today in Square Bistro in Lisburn. The service was second to none and the food was excellent. We had fish & chips and a Thai stir fry; the batter melted in the mouth and the fish was cooked to perfection. The kitchen is in view to the customers, which we like as you can see that it... More

I've often worked past this wee gem and never really gave it much notice. Then one day I was stuck for somewhere to have a close-by business lunch. So we picked here and I'm so glad we did! Fresh, clean food, great friendly service and just the right variety in the menu. I look forward to finding an excuse to... More
