I know Lisburn fairly well, however this was my first time ever eating out on a Sunday evening in the city. We started with the prawn arancini to share and it was well presented and very good. For the mains I had the chicken risotto and my girlfriend had the BBQ spare ribs both of which were also very tasty... More

We moved to Lisburn a couple of years ago and have eaten in most places in the town. The Carden is the best by far in terms of service and value for money. The meal deals cannot be beaten, and the quality of the food you get far exceeds what you pay! Particularly recommend the steaks, ribs, burgers and salt... More

This was my second visit in 2 weeks and I'm sure I'll be back again soon. Food was delicious and such a choice on both the regular menu and specials both nights. Both times I opted for the specials. First time I had the chicken satay spring rolls and a duck for main with all the trimmings and the chocolate... More

One of the best bar , bistros in Lisburn. Good food at reasonable prices. Welcoming staff and a warm friendly atmosphere. Menu can be a bit limited but food is if a high quality.

Called into The Cardan recently for a meal out and certainly wasn't disappointed. My boyfriend and I both went for special starters, mains and desserts. If you're there always give the specials a go! Found the staff to be polite, friendly and always willing to help

Well, if you cant be seen, you can not get served, avoided and simply left, no service whatsoever. Poor attention to customers.

We came across The Cardan Bar and Grill after a day out in Belfast and getting the train back to Lisburn. Situated directly opposite Lisburn station, The Cardan offers high end dining at a very reasonable price. Their food presentation is outstanding with flavours to match. Really friendly staff makes this place ideal for a romantic night out.

Hadn't been for a while, but I should really try to get more often. Service is friendly and the place has a good atmosphere, but the food is superb. Menu is always tasty. I've always been in at the weekend when I've dined at The Cardan and they also got specials on which are to die for. Couldn't recommend this... More

A local put which is absolutely getting things right. A good range of beers, friendly service and an excellent menu. The chicken pie I had was well presented and delicious. Reasonably priced too.
