Had a lovely romantic meal for two at The Cardan last week. Excellent food, nice setting and good (if not a little over attentive) service. We ordered just before the 7pm cut off for their early diners meal deal, the staff realised and charged us the deal price(which was appreciated). The bill was correct first time and the menu was...

Lovely spot with nice staff, really should try to visit more. It kind of feels "homely" being quite small and close, the staff make you feel like you're an old friend called in for dinner, it has a feeling that they are all family running it (maybe are). Even grab a beer in the bar before hand.

Dinner with friends, this is a usual haunt for us as we have never been disappointed with the food or service. It's top class food in a casual atmosphere and you won't be disappointed. The wine is well priced and the band that played later on was excellent, all and all a great restaurant and bar.

My wife and I have been frequenting this establishment over the last four years. The food has always been well prepared and presented. Apart from the regular lunch and evening menus there are daily specials which are always worth a try. The Cardan has Bar and Grill in its title, but the food is of very high quality and is... More

Food good if unimaginative. Bar gets crowded and noisy. Is central opposite station so good for transport. Private room for hire if needed. Staff friendly & helpful.

wouldn't think of going anywhere else in lisburn - even though i have tried them. Nothing is too much trouble, the service is excellent, food is always great - from meals with family, husband and looong girlie lunches - they accomodate all my needs and let me reserve the same table each time!!

Have been twice recently - once for dinner and then for lunch. Faultless on both occasions - food great and good value, but the staff were the highlight - nothing too much trouble but done in a discrete fashion adjusting to customers demeanour. Would highly recommend and hope to be back soon

Keep hearing about this place from a work colleague so thought we would eventually give it a go. Have to say.....disappointed. the staff were pleasant enough but the food....not great. We usually eat in bodenes, alfredos or del Toro and we will definitely have to stick with want we know. Found it quite pricey compared to the other places and... More
