My family and I visited today for my husbands birthday and were not disappointed. We received a warm welcome and nothing was too much trouble. With two quite fussy eaters for children it could have been difficult but main courses were adapted without any trouble at all to suit their taste. The food was delicious and the service fabulous.

We had the 3 course lunch today, and I must say how delicious it was. All 3 courses were well presented and we couldn't find fault at all. The whole place was relaxed and we never felt rushed even though it was full. Well done Limehouse keep up the good work. Oh and by the way all this for only... More

We visited this lovely restaurant on the spur of the moment on a weekend visit to York. Don't be put off by the outside - at the back of the restaurant is a lovely room which was fully booked and with a good atmosphere. The food was well cooked , well presented and pleasantly served - I had cooked camembert... More

We were not disappointed we received a very warm welcome on arrival, coats and brollies taken straight away and shown to our table in the rear dining room. Drinks and a big jug of water delivered to the table without any wait. The... More

We went to celebrate our 22 anniversary of meeting and had a lovely meal. We had thought to go a la carte but in the end had the 3 course menu instead and it was delicious. I had the crayfish and my husband had the avocado cheesecake to start with followed by chicken supreme for me and smoked haddock for... More

We booked Lime House to celebrate my birthday and our wedding anniversary and we weren't disappointed. We chose from the A la Carte menu, Trout and the Pumpkin soup followed by Duo of Beef and Monkfish and Prawn Cassoulet. A nice bottle of wine, good service and a very happy couple! Will definitely visit again.

Visited York again this week and took the opportunity to enjoy another meal at The Lime House. Luckily I had booked a table as the restaurant was very busy for a Tuesday evening. Having only eaten there at lunchtime previously I thought the ambience was even better in the evening. For my main I had the smoked fish with the... More

We went for my birthday lunch and the food was fantastic. Great value for money and lovely service. The food was beautifully prepared and presented and tasted fantastic. I would definitely recommend the fillet of bream on saffron and crayfish risotto.

We visited The Lime House for a last minute anniversary meal. We were lucky to get booked in as it was very busy and a sign on the door told us they were fully booked. We shared a bottle of wine after being greeted by friendly and helpful staff who were handling the full restaurant well. The duck starter was... More
