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

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.
