Great food quality and flavour. Service was horrendous and appalling. Waiters were rude and unhelpful. Refused to give us a table even though there were many. Made me wait for my table although I was there on time and someone else was seated there. Also,...they were unpleasant.More

Stumbled upon Lime House when looking for lunch options with a friend. Decided to try the food and so glad that we did. The spices and taste was amazing and really enjoyed sitting on the deck at the front. Would definitely recommend if you are...looking for something a little different from the norm in Singapore.More

its the second visit to Limehouse and the food is simply fantastic. Not the usual Asian cuisine that my tastebuds are used to so the Carribean style food really set my senses on fire. I highly recommend the Fish Tacos. At around $9 a pop,...they are a tad expensive but when you pop one in your mouth its really a little slice of heaven! They are also not stingy with the alcohol in their cocktails, which is always a good thing, Book ahead to avoid disappointment.More

The food was delicious, but service was pretty poor. When we got in, we ordered food and wine. The food arrived, non alcoholic drinks arrived, but the bottle of wine did not. We reminded the staff multiple times - which we got a glass of...wine - and after some reminders finally got the bottle we were waiting for. I ordered a cake for the birthday boy, but we had to wait a while for that too.More

Was given a table outdoor without proper fans. It was so hot we had to leave just after starters as we couldn’t stand the humidity. The ambience was so good but we couldn’t enjoy our food due to heat. The restaurant could have informed us...that the reserved table was non-aircon.More

I brought a guest who was visiting Singapore. The air con was not working, and therefore, we had to sit outside..in fact, all customers had moved outside. It was hot and humid - not enough fans for everyone outside to be comfortable.. we did two...rounds of drinks and some food and moved on to a much better place...More

My fiancé and I stopped by this restaurant after finding it on the internet. I am Jamaican - American and I wanted my fiancé to experience a little piece of the home I always talk about; I must say Lime House did not disappoint. From...the moment we walked in, the service was impeccable, the decor was welcoming and the food? Delicious! Being Caribbean I appreciated the how the menu tailored to the culture and cuisine. And the rum? Let’s just say, we had to buy a bottle. 100/10 ! This is must try when you visit Singapore.More

A really nice experience, with great vibe/music, tasty food (BBQ beef ribs are awesome) and excellent service... Thomas was super attentive and friendly (and we got to enjoy some amazing rhum tasting). Recommended!

Our evening at Lime House last Friday evening was delightful to say the least. We were accommodated at a table downstairs and indoors by the welcoming host. We ordered and received our drinks and meal in great time by our friendly server. Considering it was...a very busy evening, we felt well attended to throughout our meal. The atmosphere, music, decor, food and drinks were all excellent. We ordered a variety of food as we are always impressed with the quality of each dish every time we visit or order from Lime House. The selection of rum is marvellous also. The owner Chris introduced himself to my husband and I, and we had such a wonderful conversation about how he began the first Caribbean restaurant in Singapore. It truly is a gem to visit if you have not done so already. It is full of charm, tradition, and culture, and honestly makes me feel like I’ve truly stepped into the Caribbean again.More

Known for their rum-based cocktails. Had 2 mains and 2 tapas: seafood stew, Jerk chicken, dhal mushroom and salted fish croquettes. Portions was small and price was on the high side. Was served water immediately from a glass bottle upon seated and we only found...out that water cost $1.50 per pax when footing the bill. It would have been courteous of the restaurant to inform customers of this charge instead of being served water immediately upon seated.More

Still great experience overall, even though the food tends to be less qualitative as in the past... Greasier, sweeter, saltier, slightly lower quantities... sad. Maybe due to opening of the new outlet in the east. Staff is nice - quite busy.

The Oxtail with Eggplant was exceptional. Really surprised the whole family with the texture and flavour. Another memorable dish was the Seafood Stew. Great flavours. Chicken Skewers were cooked excellently too. Only had space left to try 2 desserts (Chocolate mousse and Banana cake) which...were both delicious too. Overall great value for quality of food and cook! Definitely a place to revisit.More

Limehouse is unique. While Singapore has ALOT of venues with massively overpriced Western food that is badly cooked, and absolutely ZERO atmosphere, Limehouse bucks the trend by a) offering a totally UNIQUE menu of Caribbean food and equally amazing collection of the world's best RUM...b) having a superb atmosphere with authentic and friendly staff. The new branch in Joo Chiat is amazing and the team has done a great job of launching the second branch against the odds at a time when hospitality and F&B is feeling the pinch. If you want to have fun, and remind yourself that Singapore is a global city then try Limehouse. Special shout out to Dillon and Thomas! I am going to spend my birthday at Limehouse soon and I wouldn't want to spend it anywhere else!More

We loved the atmosphere at Lime House Caribbean. Staff is attentive to details, friendly and will make sure that you are well attended. Wait time is very decent after ordering the dishes, especially the tapas and sides. I would only say that for that price,...portions are not very generous... maybe food for thoughts... more quantity without compromising the quality? Overall, I would recommend this restaurant, without a doubt.More
