Good food & friendly staff

Today is the one if their staff, Kelly's first day at this restaurant. I asked her what her suggestion from the menu, and she said ' All if them, because today is my first day!' That was really cracked me down. She was so friendly and working hard. She is smiling and thinking a head for customer... read more

Well set out cuisine, great service, quality food. We had breakfast at the buffet every morning and I had a great dinner of spare ribs and my wife had the duck breast. Excellent

We stayed in Palm Cove for four nights, and loved Lime and Pepper! We sat on the covered deck so we could look at the sea while we ate. We had wonderful tapas and delicious Australian wines. Portions were enough for two, and we enjoyed selecting several different things to share.

Lime and Pepper is the restaurant for Pepper's Resort at Palm Cove. It is in a line of 4 restaurants on the Esplanade. We have eaten here a few times and continue to return because it does a consistent job. Our last meal was outstanding. The menu was excellent with tasting plates and small and large serve mains. We selected... More

After 3 meals in 2 days at Lime and Pepper, and a week in Palm Cove trying all the restaurants, this is by far the best food and service around! We could not fault a thing and look forward to many more meals here!

Stayed at Peppers for 10 nites, absolutely a great place to stay. Lime and Pepper is the restaurant run by the hotel. Our package included breakfast, which was very dissapointing. The hot food was at best lukewarm, and virtually cold by the time you got to your table. Staff were great, but I would not breakfast here again. Based on... More

While staying at Peppers Beach and Spa in Palm Cove we dined at Lime and Pepper the first time as it was part of a package deal. The chef's five course tasting plate was so delicious we chose to come back another night to try some of the other dishes. The staff were friendly and professional. We enjoyed the view... More

We had celebrated my 40th bithday with a large group at this beautiful restaurant. I chose it as the menu was available online and clearly marked with plenty of gluten free choices. As I am both gluten and dairy free this made it easier to choose dinner. Everyone's dinner arrived at the same time and everyone was impressed with their... More

Very friendly accommodating service. Amazing variety of tasting dishes........all different and well presented. Our taste buds had a party!!!!! We especially loved the scallop dish and the pomegranate garnish. Fish with Asian greens was excellent too. Highly recommended.

Amazing food, great service, lovely view and perfect cocktails - we have been twice in 6 weeks for lunch and are bringing the kids with their partners next week for dinner. Initially dined as a couple for lunch, tempted by the menu which changes seasonally. It's 30c I don't want lamb shanks and mash for lunch or heavy pasta. We... More
