I can't comment on the food as I never ate here, but spent many evenings meeting with friends over a pint or two. It was never too loud, and the staff were always fantastic. Plus, it is just across from the train station so it is easy to get in and out.

I eat here for almost every major family occasion. The food is always stunning and amazing value, but the service does seem to be slipping. Servers always seem really rushed and little things are often missed. Still not bad enough that I'll head elsewhere, but can't afford to slip any further. If you never tried here, you'll be amazed by... More

Pleasantly surprised by the recent Sunday lunch we had here! Food was lovely and a bargain for 2 courses for £15!

This place is right opposite the train station, so you can't miss it, if you get the cho-cho in. To be honest, I didn't think I'd like it, as I thought it was far too young for me, but I wasn't the oldest there. What happened was, I had trouble connecting to the internet in "The Bell", so I had... More

This review should have been written much earlier!!!. The last time we were there was to celebrate my youngest daughter's birthday. As usual, the food and the service was exceptional. The Cardan is a hidden gem in Lisburn. It deserves a much higher profile on tripadvisor!! Our family has eaten in it several times over the last year and we... More

The price of drink is expensive and the inside of The Cardan badly needs redecoration also seating replaced - they do need to spend some money on the place
