Fodor's Expert Review Lime & Pepper Restaurant and Bar
European flair meets great local produce at this upscale beachfront restaurant and bar. Lime & Pepper mixes fresh seafood, tropical fruits, and bush-tucker ingredients, such as native finger limes and Davidson plums, in innovative dishes, with a worthy wine list and tropical cocktails. Menu options for lunch, dinner, and the five-course degustation (A$159 per person, with matched wines) change seasonally. Stand-out entrées might include grilled Gulf of Carpentaria tiger prawns with a coffee-lime dressing, or lemon-myrtle-marinated Grimaud duck breast on orange risotto, with asparagus and vanilla foam. Desserts are suitably elegant. The cuisine might be sophisticated, but kids are catered for with their own menu. Lime & Pepper also serves elegant high teas (from A$35, glass of bubbly included). Service, with the odd exception in peak periods, is attentive and knowledgeable.
