Had 2 meals here. Both very good indeed. I had the mixed grill. Arabian style and it was really nice. Excellent portion size. Following night I had the lamb chops. Staff are very nice and attentive.

Trip Advisor rating betrayed me here. If I knew it was a restaurant in the Holiday Inn I'd have known better. But I didn't know till I got here. Pros: 1) empty, no problem getting a table. 2) friendly staff. 3) ok seafood basket starter fish Cons: 1) very poorly decorated 2) not a German Restaurant. It offers pastas, pizzas,... More

The Lemon Tree for dinner was a great food choice. The lemon tree salad and wasabi prawns to the chicken/asparagus risotto and lamb chops, all was perfectly prepared and delicious. The service was on point and the staff very pleasant. The restaurant itself is oddly arranged. Most of the seating is in an area that is quite open. From my... More

One of the few places that I found that will cook a steak as you order it. Great service, the meal was perfect along with the ambiance.

Being a regular guest in the area I always like visiting the Lemon Tree because of the fine food, excellent wine and very friendly staff. Antonio is very good selecting the perfect Italian wine and offer off-menu dishes, and he has always some nice stories to tell. Definitely worth mentioning is the other outstanding staff as Madelyn, Irma, Bella, Dave,... More
