“Best Steak Good Service”
Reviewed November 3, 2013 via mobile

We were seated after booking in advance in the upstairs section...this could have been made clearer when we booked by phone as upstairs was much quiter and our party of 4 had just 2 other couples sharing the quiter space...ground floor had better atmosphere and was FULL ...Service was good with a very attentive waitress who was very pleasant to us all...However the Steak and Kenmare Bay Salmon had was amazing and well worth it...thank you TLT

“love the ambiance and atmosphere..and the food of course!!”
Reviewed November 2, 2013

We chose the Lime Tree for a quite birthday treat for my partner. Have been before and the food was just as good second time around. We arrived early and were the first in the restaurant. Staff are very pleasant and attentive. The service was a bit slow but the waitress apologised explaining that there was a big group in upstairs. As it was Halloween there were trick or treat callers who were welcomed by the staff. The room temperature was a bit on the cool side when we arrived but when the door remained open for the trick or treat callers the temperature went right down. However, this was the only negative. We love this restaurant and will be back again and again!"!

Reviewed October 31, 2013

Brought my family back to the Lime Tree at the weekend for a birthday celebration, and we were given the usual great welcome from Mike and his team.
The food was again phenomenal and the service top class

Thanks for a great night

“Overall wonderful experience”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

We had heard good things about The Lime Tree and decided to go while staying in Kerry on holiday. We had high hopes for the restaurant and it totally surpassed all of them! The staff were very welcoming and attentive, the atmosphere of the whole place was relaxed, comfortable and intimate and the food was incredible. All three courses for the three of us were delicious and we left full and content. Definitely making a return visit next time I'm down, the chicken wings are well worth the trip.
