“A Gem of a Restaurant!”
Reviewed August 4, 2014

We visited the Lime Tree yesterday after my daughter's wedding. It was a lovely day and we had drinks outside first and then went in to eat. The food was superb - so tasty and beautifully presented, and the service excellent. After we had a toast outside to the bride and groom. The staff were so helpful and couldn't do enough for us.

The only thing I would say needed attention was the fan in the restaurant was not working and so it was quite warm inside. It either needed air conditioning or a working fan.

I would definitely go there again if I lived in the area.

“Amazing food, average service”
Reviewed August 1, 2014 via mobile

We went for our wedding anniversary. We live local and know the Lime Tree to be a special occasion type of place- expensive! The food was absolutely fantastic- really, really good. However, the fantastic chefs were really let down by poor service for a restaurant charging these sorts of prices. They kind of ignored us (they didn't know it was a special occasion) they preferred to pay attention to the larger (older and richer) parties. Everything took too long after ordering, didn't offer drinks, they tried to over charge us, blaming it on 'pushing the wrong button' and made no real effort- all sounds quite small, but when you go to an expensive restaurant you expect amazing service to match that level of food. Was a bit disappointing and made us a bit cross to be honest. Can't emphasise how good the food was but they need to seriously work on the service.
