My wife and I dined here after looking up a nice place to go on TripAdvisor. We were staying on Playa Norte and took a cab to get there which only cost 40 pesos. We were greeted by Sergio, and even though we did not have reservations, he was able to accommodate us in the courtyard. Sergio is a great... More

Limon was recommended by several people at Ixchel and was well worth the ride to the Colonia. The restaurant is beautiful and the service excellent. Food is prepared on the grill on the patio and the Chef/owner took our order, made recommendations and chatted while we were deciding what to order. Everything was excellent and the mussels appetizer was amazing.... More

My wife and I went to limon and loved it. We sat in the courtyard I had steak and she had grilled tuna. Both were perfect. The staff was friendly and Sergio is the best. Hospitality off the charts. He makes you feel like a friend rather than a customer. We will definitely go back!

This restaurant is in a small house. Highly recommend reservations since it is small. The food was amazing. My husband and a friend both had lobster that the chef has received 10 minutes before we arrived. I ordered the shrimp in a spicy sauce and it was wonderful.

Definitely recommend this while you are on the island. Expect to spend a couple hours here though. I wouldn't recommend this for young children even though Sergio told us not to worry about bringing ours. Husband had the ribeye and I had the trio skewers. Very delicious!

We had a wonderful meal at Limon and the atmosphere was great. After initially seeming a bit frazzled that our group of 5 arrived without a reservation (understandable since he had just received last minute reservations for a large group in his very small restaurant), Sergio was more than friendly and attentive service that only an owner can provide. The... More

Not only was this a restaurant to us, but an amazing experience. We ordered many dishes and all were excellent. Sergio was fantastic and we enjoyed socializing with him while he cooked our meat on the bbq. We dined outside and socialized with another table with very interesting tourists. Wine, fine tequila, intimate setting and very social staff made this... More

I visited this restaurant while on my honeymoon the other week and had a good overall experience. We sat in the back courtyard and ate very good food, along with a nice wine selection. I would definitely recommended leaving the Centro and finding this place. PS: Leave the Centro in general to eat...don't go with easy, go for the adventure!

Make no mistake - the food here is about as far removed from what was served at Sergio's Playa Sol as you can get. Although we hate the phrase "casual elegance", this place should be the textbook definition of that. Ambiance, staff, drinks, price, and of course the food are among the best that Isla has to offer. In fact,... More

This was a little hard to get too but we took a 60 peso or so taxi ride and it was easy lol. Food was great. We had tuna, chicken, shrimp, etc. so we tried it all. Everything was fantastic. The chef/owner was so friendly and fun. For sure a top 5 restaurant on the island.
