The food was good but clearly caters for the more affluent. Lunch specials ranged between R155 - R220, so not really a special. Great coffee and good service. Not sure that I'd go back though, mainly because its so pricey.

Lime Tree has calamari as one of its dishes - quite pricey compared to other restaurants, but at one time it was consistently worth ordering. However, recently that dish has become inconsistent - sometimes good, sometimes less so. The most recent calamari I had there had a mixture of acceptable pieces, and pieces so tough you struggled to even cut them with a knife, and they couldn't be chewed. Not at all enjoyable.
The brief apology for the poor food seemed insincere.

Was in the area for a dress fitting but arrived too early. Decided to try the cafe just for a small bite to eat and something to drink. It was empty when we got their but their was staff inside. When me and my mom asked if they were open they said no. On further inspection we saw their closing time was only 4:30 and it was 3:30 we then proceeded to watch the staff lock up and leave before 4. If you are going to run a cafe be prepared to stay through the quiet times until closing. (Its also worth adding another couple arrived at the same time so they turned more than just our money down)

This neighbourhood restaurant is top class. It is a friendly place with a high level of service and the food is well cooked and presented. It is also very good value for money and has a great range of dishes. We enjoyed several visits and will be going again.
