SO GOOD I'VE REVIEWED IT TWICE!

Been here a few times since my last review. It gets better every time. Food is excellent, service also. I've tried off the menu and the specials. I was in this weekend and had the duck with a chocolate jus. I've not heard of this before! But it just works. It was unreal! Loved it. Can't wait for... read more

Food is lovely, typical pub grub menu. Service is always quick and the surroundings are also lovely. Cocktail menu is a nice treat. Worth a visit

This has become our favourite place to dine in Lisburn. The staff don't constantly circle your table, they are efficient and friendly. We go here with our daughters, one is 20 the other is 9, so don't be afraid to take the whole family! The food and a drink, at certain times of day, are available at a fixed price... More

Enjoyed a very good value early evening meal ,£15 for two courses with a glass of wine. Food was very good as was the service from very helpful pleasant staff . The atmosphere was good but the noise from the adjacent bar was rather loud and a little distracting Overall a good place for and enjoyable evening meal

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!
