With a party of friends for a meal all the food was fabulous. Friendly attentive Staff. We had the Two course meal deal which also included a drink for only £15 A Real bargain. We shall return.

A Saturday evening in March, in Lisburn. Doesn't sound like something to aspire to, does it? Well, think again, because the Cardan is a top notch eatery, and we will be back. Very handy for us on the train, the food was great, and the place was buzzing. No Complaints.

I was recommended the Cardan by a close friend. My husband works in a restaurant so quite fussy where he eats. It is by far one of the best restaurants in Lisburn. Service, food and atmosphere all excellent but value for money is outstanding. Looking forward to going back again this Friday .

Eaten at Cardan many times both for lunch and evening meals. Extensive menu to suit all palates, superb presentation you nearly don't want to touch it. Well done to kitchen and floor staff it's always been a 5* experience!

I've eaten here now quite a few times And it's absolutely fantastic. Friendly, great staff, local beers and the best food I've had in Northern Ireland. Not only is it the best food, it's also very well priced. 3 courses of quality food and a coke for £20. (ish) Best food in NI, best rib's I've ever eaten!

Have dined here and always found it very good but I have used it more frequently for lunch time gatherings. The menu is comprehensive and reasonably priced. Situated only 1 miute from the train station and 10 from the bus station it is very convenient. Staff always friendly and food of very high standard.
