“Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

My birthday falls on Valentines Day so I am used to booking for dinner way, way in advance. Except we were on our way to Albany for the weekend and I had no idea where to go? I saw Lime 303 and after asking a few local friends I promptly booked in.

It was a set menu and absolutely fabulous! At $85 p/p it wasn't something we would normally do, but for a special occasion it was definitely worth it. The entree was perfection, main was delicious, and I have run out of delectable words to describe dessert (I wanted more, and more and more, forever and ever).

Service was also fantastic! Our waiter was friendly and had impeccable service, and so did the other staff.

The decor is lovely, it is such a small, quiet place, perfect for a romantic dinner.

The only thing I didn't like was parking out the back and walking past the kitchen window and "back alley" looking area to get to the restaurant, although I do believe there is a front entrance.

“The best restaurant of our trip to Western Australia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

Having found the restuarants in Western Australia generally rather disappointing, we were delighted by our meal in Lime 303. The staff in the restaurant are properly trained and attentive, unlike those in the many Australian restaurants that rely on itinerant workers. The menu was inventive and the food beautifully cooked. Although the restaurant was very busy, the service was very prompt. The quality of the food in Lime 303 is not a secret, so you need to book ahead.

“Quite flash”

Great setting, great place for a romantic dinner or to bring good friends. Meals have a few different things, very nice. Not value for money, only for those special occasions!!

“Tasty food, 20% surcharge on public holiday”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

Nice setup, very modern and comfortable.Good size meal. The food served was delicious. I think I would be happy to pay the normal price for the meal as the meals are high standard however to add 20% for dining on a public holiday is a bit steep.

“Could have been terrible”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

Apparently this restaurant is pretty popular and bookings are essential (in advance). A really nicely presented place, with a small lounge area and a place at the bar for drinks before dinner, which is what we did. After being seated we ordered our meals and wine and as I was saving myself for one of the most delicious looking desserts, I decided not to have an entree but my partner did. He ordered the butter poached bug tail pasta and it was devine! I had a little taste and wished I had ordered it too (and I'm not a keen seafood eater). We had ordered the surf and turf and the limes carbonara for our mains. Unfortunately, our waiter did not come near us after taking our order and we waited over 1.5hrs for someone to notice we had not yet had our mains. Our waiter decides to surface and tells us sorry but it will only be another 5 minutes and I let my disappointment show and quickly ordered another drink before he disappeared again! It was a very long 5 minutes and the restaurant manager then approached and apologised profusely. By this time, I admit we did not feel like eating - it was after 9pm - and all we wanted to do was go to our room and sleep! Just before our mains arrived, the manager came over again and advised that the main meals would be free of charge. What a relief (I wouldn't feel so bad that we didn't eat it then at $40 a main). Ate what we could but declined the dessert. Now although it is pretty inexcusable to forget someone's order - I think they redeemed themselves by the offer of not charging for the main meals and hence my rating for this review. I would eat here again as the taste I had was really nice and the Manager should be commended for her outstanding customer service!
