Happy Customers!

We had several meals at Lime & Pepper, each time food was great and service was fantastic. Chef Tom was very friendly and Sarah the waitress made us feel very welcome. Will definitely go back next time we are in Palm Cove.

Other starter share plates were ok but not great. Then we shared 2 larger plates, one being slow cooked beef rib with a vietnamese green paw paw... More

Lots of choices from the menu, great food, superb service by staff and views to the beach while you are enjoyng the meal. Chef cares about your enjoyment of his dishes and asks guests if they enjoyed or had a suggestion about his meals

We had dinner here for our anniversary last week. We chose a selection of entrees/taster plates and really enjoyed the flavour combinations, particularly the trout and the spring rolls. Couldn't fault the service, friendly, very quick and attentive, although it was a very quiet night.

Stayed at peppers and included dinner one night was good but not best of the 7 nights we ate out each night. Menu was reduced and lacked choice so tryed again following day still not that special . Quality was good lacked real seafood choice and not big enough variety. Will try again

This restaurant serves lovely food cooked to perfection. With plenty of delicious choices, the food lived up to expectations. Service was good and it was quite impressive to have the chef come and speak with everyone individually about the food and their experiences. I would definitely return to this highly recommended restaurant.
