My wife and I stayed in York for a long weekend for our anniversary and decided to try out The Lime House based on trip advisor reviews.

We were not disappointed at all the location was great, it was very quiet when we went (3 tables occupied) the staff were attentive but not overbearing.

The food was excellent and more in quantity than I anticipated I had the Parma ham and Stilton to start my wife had the crayfish tails both of which were superb, followed by the haddock for my wife and I had the chicken, again excellent.

After our meals and a few drinks we asked for the bill and I was shocked at how good value it was for all we had.

Arguably the best ambient, independent restaurant in York &
I will most certainly be returning soon.

My husband and I visited the Lime House after previously having an outstanding meal here, so decided to come back for a romantic meal. The service was to a high standard and yet again the food was truly out of this world. We both had the trio of beef for main and were very satisfied customers. See you again soon!

Set lunch menu delicious, imaginative and very good value, excellent wines by the glass or carafe so a choice of 4 different sizes, proper restrained restaurant décor, charming service. Even an up to date website telling you all you need to know. All evidence of really thinking through what the customer wants so for that a (rare for me) five stars.

Two of us ate here just after Christmas and the food was very good. We each had three courses, all different, and none disappointed. We were seated in the back which was cold, lacking atmosphere and a little quiet and not enough attention was paid by the staff. I do hate having to go looking for the bill and again to pay it. That being said, the staff were young and very polite and pleasant. Perhaps just a little more instruction by the management is required. I realise that restaurants are likely to be quiet at this time of year. I will visit again next time in York.
