My family and I went to Green's and noticed The Lime Tree and admired how nice it looked. My mum mentioned she'd been before with friends a long time ago and we decided to go for my parents 34th anniversary/a late Father's Day meal. We were seated quickly and given menus to browse. I thought the value was excellent - 3 courses for £18 (or 2 for £15) until 6:30pm. I went for 3 courses - starting with tomato and mozarella salad (which was okay, the larger bits of tomato/cheese were a bit bland, saved by a zingy pesto and basil sauce with yummy chopped up peppers).
I followed with salmon fillet with potatos and veg which was delish! The salmon skin had been cooked so it was delightfully crispy, not slimey like some skins are. I really liked the surrounding veg too. Finally, I finished with a warm chocolate brownie which I would have liked to have been a larger portion, since it was so yummy! Despite this, I think the portion size for everything else was great and all food was wonderfully presented. The rest of my family loved everything too.
The restaurant wasn't that busy and I thought the interior of the restaurant in the bit where we were sat was a bit bland which overall led to the atmosphere of The Lime Tree not being as jumping as I would expect from a trendy Didsbury area! It got busier around 8pm, just as we left, but the service between main and pudding was a bit slow. I suppose I didn't mind as it gave my food a chance to go down. Our waiter was a lovely French man, very funny and smiley :) Would like to return again and try some things from the a la carte menu this time... looking forward to it!
