A great place!

We had a really nice meal here with our family in Ireland! It's very busy, so you have to book a table! Efficient staff, lovely food! We all had different dishes but all served up at the same time!

Portions of my particular dish (Stroganoff) were meagre for the price. A large plate on which a small mound of rice, a small dish of stroganoff and 2 pieces of garlic bread got lost. Have been there before and was happy but the jury is out on a return.

I am disappointed to read you felt our portions were to small. At square bistro we portion control all our dishes and on this occasion if it failed to meet your expectations we apologise, we do urge all our diners to let us know at the time that there is a problem as it can be rectified when it happens...

Busy restaurant - advisable to book. Food excellent and staff friendly and helpful. Only complaint is that area is quite cramped a lot of the tables for 2 are very close making attempting a private conversation impossible.

Had the pleasure of eating here recently and was very impressed. Staff friendly and helpful. Ate from the early bird menu and thoroughly enjoyed our choices of beer battered cod with chunky chips and the char Sui chicken stir fry. Had no intention of having dessert but once I saw the choices I just had to go for it. Strawboffee,... More

I've been many times but brought work colleagues for the first time on the 9 May. Everyone were so impressed with the food, the service and the surroundings and each person said they would definitely be back!! Normally we would only have 1 or 2 courses but we all had 3!! Just couldnt help ourselves as it was all so... More

Have heard great things from other locals but hadn't been for ages for some reason. Ordered off vegetarian menu and got Bombay chips. Delicious. Simple and really really tasty. Definitely will come back to Lisbun Squares last man standing!
