We took our daughters and their families, nine of us in all, to lunch to celebrate our Golden Wedding. The food was excellent and very reasonably priced and the service was friendly and efficient. I would strongly recommend this restaurant.

Excellent lunch last week on our last day in York. We wished we had found earlier. How do they do set lunch for the price. Beautifully presented. They do deserve to do well.

My husband booked us a table for my birthday on Friday and we had a wonderful meal. I'm not going to lie, on perusal of the menu I was a little apprehensive - the choices were a little on the unusual side - however, the food did not disappoint! Beautiful food, attentive staff and cosy atmosphere - we will most... More

We decided to book a table here because of the reviews on trip advisor and we weren't disappointed. Lovely cosy restaurant, friendly staff and excellent food. Everything way lovely but the duo of beef was stunning. Cannot recommend this place enough.

There isn't a lot of choice but there is probably something to suit all tastes. Starters, mains & desserts were all fantastic, not huge portions but enough.

We attended as a group and ate from the a la carte menu in the evening. Food was excellently presented for both starters and mains, the dishes were tasty and of sufficient portion size. We just shared 2 additional sides of vegetables. The wine list catered for most requirements. Yes there is a but coming.........the service which started off as... More

Catherine F, Owner at The Lime House, responded to this review

I'd like to add a little context to this review as I believe the claim the services was "over attentive & intrusive" is unfair. You actually sat with dessert menus for over an hour. During that hour we check 3 times whether you were ready to order, around once every 20 minutes. At no time was any instruction given for... More

Lovely meal tonight. My wife ate from the Fixed Price Menu, and I ate from the a la carte. Both of us fully enjoyed our food and the 1/2 litre carafe of wine. The service was timely without being intrusive and the bill was a shade under £70. For three courses. Great value.

Booked for lunch midweek and had the set price menu.Very good value and has a French Bistro feel.I had the Duck leg confit and could not fault it my wife had Chicken supreme which was equally as good.Under £11 for two courses is very good value for money and local independent restaurants should be supported.

Visited this resturant during our brief stay in York and opted for the a la carte menu, although the set menu also had some attractive options. I had an excellent beef duo and my wife thoroughly enjoyed her sea bass, after really tasty goats cheese and brie cheesecake starters respectively. The atmosphere was positive and the service was very personal.... More
