Restaurant Review: The Square Bistro


Twitter is really the best place to get restaurant recommendations.  And they are instant.  They probably exclude those establishments that don’t have a twitter presence.  But that’s their problem.

We were looking for recommendations for eating in Lisburn.  We were already heading to the new Uluru premises in Armagh, as we have been tweeting with Dean for quite some time through #SundayCookOff, and really enjoyed our meal there the last time.

He couldn’t recommend Stevie in the Square Bistro highly enough, as did other tweeps, so we booked a table.

As usual after running around mountains all day orienteering we were well and truly famished by the time we arrived.  So starters were a definite.

My feta cheese fritters with honey and truffle was delicate but each flavour was there, and the sweetness of the cheese was very good with the honey.

Due to the carnivore nature of our family, 3 out of 4 of us had steaks.  Nigel had the special, I had the flat iron, and Jordan the rib.

Robert had the duck, which was tender and nicely spiced.

Chocolate is always a winner on a dessert menu for me, so both Jordan and I had the fondant, as I am not a fan of ice cream, I always ask for cream instead, and it came exactly…

…as requested.  You’ve no idea how often it doesn’t come out that way.  The chocolate quality must have been good as the taste was so smooth.

Mind you, Robert’s sticky toffee pudding also looked like a winner.

This is a perfect place to go for an intimate bustling atmosphere, that ecshews the normal burger/ steak joint format.
