We had a 3 course evening meal here. The menu is short but really interesting, and everything we had was excellent, including an amuse bouche at the start of the meal that I actually wanted to eat! Good choice of wines by the glass, and...More

Lime Tree is classic – dark red walls, local art, mountain-facing windows, and a warm and cozy atmosphere. Though the menu is limited, each dish was superbly cooked and presented, and of course, delicious. The service was attentive, helpful and the wait staff offered great...More

While this restaurant had a limited menu, it was all very good. We chose a parsnip veloute for our appetizer, followed by braised short ribs with vegetables and a pork and partridge pie for our mains. These were a welcome change from all the seafood...More

This restaurant deserves to be busy, every night! The restaurant itself is only a short walk from the southern end of the main street, with lovely views across the loch. The food is high end bistro and reminded us, very much, of Tom Kitchin's Scran...More

I fail to understand the rave reviews about this restaurant. They clearly are aiming high but the food was poor. I had the veloute which was just poor as was the dessert. My husband thought his hake was good but that was the only decent...More

A meal so good that it compelled me to finally make a Tripadvisor account. Lime Tree's food is exceptional - wonderfully presented and perfectly cooked. I tried the 'vegetarian haggis' and Jacob's Ladder (slow cooked short rib with potato/pea/wasabi mash) and both were fantastic. The...More

The food here is fantastic and well worth paying the little extra compared to what you would in other restaurants. There was a small hiccup with finding out reservation but was quickly rectified. The service was good and a nice rest in between courses. Highly...More

The food philosophy at the Lime Tree is that dishes are made here from fresh, seasonal, locally sourced raw ingredients, then made into something special by our skilled innovative Chef team 'The Lime Tree Restaurant style is one we have come to know as Fiddly Posh Scottish: Lamb with a family tree, duck that went to Gordonstoun, fish that kept its nose clean. All this technically superb, and while served in a part of the country not blessed with an abundance of fine dining, nonetheless worthy of comparison with the cities best. Fort William finally has a heavy-weight culinary destination.' Sunday Times Restaurant The Lime Tree Restaurant is a multi award winning restaurant - Silver Eat Scotland - Two AA Rosette - Relish Good Food Guide Top Twenty Scottish Small Restaurant Private dining - Our fantastic Gallery Space is the perfect location when for Private Dinning or Special Celebrations. We can seat up to 50 persons and our Chef will tailor a meal to suit your requirements.
