Good value for money

Have eaten here 4 or 5 times and have never had a bad meal yet. Good value for money. Nice place to stop for a bite to eat.

Always highly satisfying for a quick bite, and the obligatory cocktail of course! Very welcoming, and always smells incredible :-)

Food is out of this world, staff are on the ball and inside is warm and friendly. Its been 4 long years since we were in Lisburn but the Cardan is still delivering on all levels. If I lived there, it would become our second home! BRAVO

I ate lunch at the Cardan Bar and was supremely impressed by the quality of food and friendliness of staff. Being Canadian, I had no idea what chicken gourjons were, but ordered them anyway as they sounded like chicken strips. Oh...but several steps above...beautiful crisp batter, delicious chicken....I fell in love.

This is our wee local. We always call in here for a quick drink or bite to eat. The strawberry daiquiri cocktails are a little pricey at £7.50 but they are absolutely amazing!!! There's an over 25's nightclub upstairs called Distil which is not full of young ones and we always have a great night out here!

Love this restaurant!! Food is fantastic, service always to a high standard and great value with their 'perfect 10' offer! Lost count of the amount of times I have ate here. Very busy at the weekends and due to it being very small it does end up very loud in Friday and Saturday nights, good place to start a night... More

Having visited the linen museum we sought out lunch but Lisburn offered few opportunities and we ended up in the pub directly opposite the train station where we had arrived. Not disappointed, the lunch was tasty and well presented and prices of that and wine reasonable. Friendly, efficient staff.

Been here before, nothing special, just a nice atmosphere and excellent food, also opposite the main train station. Would go again, and recommend to anyone else
