Oysters were very plump and tasty for entree. Desert was awesome. Mains were enjoyable. Wine list was pretty comprehensive depending on what you are looking for. Great position set among the beautiful paperbarks

My friends and I booked a table for a going away party one evening and we were given a table with the best view in the place. The menu is small but has lots of great choices.

Nice setting, spacious with lovely outlook over the beach. Looks like it's going to be expensive but it wasn't. Leather sit chairs made for a stick bum as unfortunately had shorts on. Food tasty, steak cooked to perfection.

My mum and I dined at lime & pepper and found it to be superb in every way. The restaurant has a beautiful ambience opposite palm cove beach and our table was quiet and well positioned so we could enjoy our conversation. Our waiters were extremely attentive and helpful, particularly regarding my food allergy . Nothing was too much trouble... More
