Review on The Lime Tree Restaurant

Housed in a delightfully discreet building dating back to 1832, the Lime Tree now ranks as one of the best-loved restaurants in the area, thanks to the efforts of Chef Patron, Michael Casey and his enthusiastic team.

Attractive leafy grounds surround the place, which is cosily rustic in style with old wood panelling, exposed stone walls and a minstrel's gallery; in stark contrast, there's also a striking contemporary art gallery housed on the first floor above the restaurant.

On the food front, the kitchen majors in modern cuisine based on carefully sourced Irish ingredients, witness pan-roast loin of venison with glazed root vegetables, fig Tatin and bitter-sweet chocolate or free-range duck breast and confit leg with soft polenta cake and five-spice jus. Fish also shows up well in the shape of Castletownbere crab, Atlantic salmon or baked sea bass with homemade ravioli, mushroom and tarragon broth. Finish with warm crêpes or raspberry and Mascarpone crème brûlée.
