Early supper

Had a wonderful early supper last evening. Despite my favourite no longer being on the menu the chef was happy to prepare it. Staff are so courteous and attentive . Little wonder that they are so popular.

My husband and I went for a little treat and we were never so glad we chose the Square Bistro ! The rib eye steak was just melt in your mouth delicious,so tender and juicy. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Went here on Saturday night and was really impressed. Nicest food I've had in a really long time and we eat out A LOT! The staff were friendly and couldn't have been nicer and the steak was to die for! Be sure to try to house blue cheese sauce!

Really nice ambiance, food lovely, great choice although it was Wednesday (curry night) there was still a wide variety of other choices available . Staff very attentive and patient .... we took so long to choose ! Rather bizarrely...I think it was all female clientele , just a weird coincidence, although my friend advises me there was a big football... More

Have walked past this place on many occasions, but tried it last week for the first time. Lovely for a nice tea or coffee break. Spotless inside, warm and cosy.

Friday night is fish night so we thought we'd give it a go. The food was very good and the staff were great too. The only down side was the draught from the door so if you're sitting inline you'll have to keep your coat on! A spring on the door might help

Attended Saturday evening. Dinner for six people. Steaks were fantastic as always and lobster cooked beautifully. Deserts very tasty. Good value for money. £150 for all of us. Staff are always friendly and will ensure you have a lovely time. This has to be one of the best restaurants in Northern Ireland. Worth the drive from Bangor.
