Had the chicken for main course, just unreal is the only way I could describe it, and a brownie for desert. Got drinks on the house which I thought was a lovely touch! Will definitely be returning :(

I have recently returned to The Lime Tree and was another great experience. Now that the winter arrived, the roaring fire in the big fireplaces is very welcoming and gives a great atmosphere. Staff was very welcoming and friendly and the food was delicious. Will come back again.

A family supper here was the high poing of our kenmare visit and well. The sum of the parts seem odd. Been before many times and well. Good points n bad appear slow slow service a badly organised entrance with staff not sure what's going on where to seat bookings and general lapses in hospitality. Menus with steep surcharges and...

Menu has a great selection to please everyone. We skipped starters as we were starving. Both had the steak, cooked to perfection. Gorgeous fresh veg... More

We both found our food to be WAY above average. The two starters of smoked salmon and soup du jour (mushroom), were both delicious. Main courses were the duo of lamb and the chicken which... More

We have visited the Lime Tree before and I should have written the review then, but to be honest this visit surpassed the last. Starters of Sneem Black Pudding and crab claws were superb, and the main courses (mine an amazing seabass, and my partners a steak) were divine. My partner is still raving about his steak today! The waiter... More
