A beautiful venue in lovely Kenmare provides the setting for some really excellent dishes. We really enjoyed the fresh Lobster, but the menu was wide and varied. Service was top class as well. Looking forward to a return visit!!!

This is my third time in this restaurant - I would go again and again and again and again. The food is absolutely delicious. I dined here last Saturday June 29th with my husband and two adult children, imagine - four starters and no complaints, followed by four main courses (3 fillet steaks and lamb) and everyone was smiling -...

WARNING: This review is done by a lacto-ovo vegetarian eating at a restaurant known for its fish and meat. I had heard good things about The Lime Tree from several folks. But as a lacto-ovo vegetarian (eggs-milk products okay), the best restaurants earn their reputations not based on their vegetarian food. Still, the menu advertised a mushroom soup starter and...

8 of us had the pleasure of dining in this restaurant 2 weeks ago. It was all of ours first time here. All I can say is, top marks to everything. We all agreed that it was the best meal we have had in a long long time. We actually could not fault 1 thing. We all had fish (different... More

It's in a cute little house with a fireplace, inmate, friendly wait staff. The food is fresh and seasonal. We would have gone back again if we'd had another night.

Visited the Lime Tree on recent holiday to Kenmare and it was a great experience. We had been here in September 2011 but thought it was better this time. For the main course, the fillet of beef was excellent. Beef was so tender, you didn't even need a steak knife to cut it. Service was great. It was a really... More

We were given this name by a few friends who live in Ireland and so we popped in a whim to see if we could get a table ... and we did, right by the fireplace. Quaint atmosphere and food that does not disappoint. Scallop starter and then a short rack of lamb and mini shepherds pie ... not one... More

I cannot recommend the Lime Tree highly enough. From the picturesque setting to the wonderful ambience and first class food this was unforgettable...we also had a young boy with us who was made to feel so special by the staff and head chef. An AMAZING experience...
