Visited for lunch and was impressed at choice, quality and value. The restaurant was full on a Tuesday lunchtime but our meals arrived in good time and were all hot and extremely tasty. In addition service was very professional and welcoming. This was my first visit to Lisburn but if opportunity arises I will certainly return and would highly recommend.

This place is right up there with the best in Northern Ireland. The food in here is amongst the best I've had anywhere. A family owned and run restaurant, and it shows in the pride they take in what they do. Well done to all concerned, keep up the great work.

Whilst Lisburn Square is something of a disappointment to say the least, it contains something of a hidden gem. Square Bistro is one of those special Restaurants that those in the know keep coming back to. Square Bistro offers, quality food at good prices along with great comfortable surroundings. The staff are attentive and don't "crowd" you. Highly recommended if... More

Went with 5 friends for an early sitting on Saturday night and everyone had nothing but praise for our experience. It might seem a little expensive for a Lisburn venue but believe me it's right up there with the best that Belfast has to offer. Superb food, fantastic staff and even if Stephen (Owner) isn't in the kitchen they still... More
