This Lisburn city centre bistro is renowned for it theme nights; tapas, curry and fresh seafood, but they also do an Earlybird menu and a regular a la carte. The Sqaure has been uber-popular since it was opened by a husband and wife duo 8 years ago.
Head chef/proprietor Stephen Higginson and his team are sticklers for using the best local ingredients like Peter Hannan’s salt-aged beef, Abernathy butter, Still Waters Seafood from Portavogie and Ewings Seafood, Belfast. Naturally, they have the know-how to cook them very, very well. That’s why they advise you to book in advance. They wouldn’t want you to miss out on their amazing food.
Stephen and his wife Cristina are passionate about what goes on the plates. There’s a great breakfast offering. Lunch and dinner menus changes regularly but expect things like Portavogie scampi and Mooli and Ponzu dressing and Caledon Estate venison with darling baby roast apples.
The wine list is perfectly balanced, the desserts are all made in house, and on top of that, more than half of the staff has done the World Host Customer Service program. They’ve ticked all the (Square) boxes!
Open Mon 9.30-3pm Tues-Sat, open 9.30am-3pm and 5-8.30 (9ppm on Fri and Sat) and closed Sunday.
