“Good food, TERRIBLE SERVICE”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

Our server didn't seem to care to make an effort to do his job. When he took our drink order he took my husbands order and then walked off without asking me what I wanted to drink. My husband had to walk over to the bar to tell him what I wanted. Then after we finished our dinner he cleared our plates and didn't offer us another drink (we were both empty) or even offer us dessert. He actually walked out to the patio area and was on his cell phone. My husband went out there to tell him that we would like to order dessert.

The décor is nice and romantic, but we were one of the only guests in the restaurant. I can see why. Lemon Café- FIRE YOUR SERVER!

“nice choice for something different”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

if you have grown tired of conch fritters after several days in turks & caicos, lemon cafe is worth checking out if you like middle eastern food. if you don't like middle eastern food, you are not going to like much here, so don't bother. the dining area is really nicely set up with moroccan decor. the menu is a little repetitive, but we enjoyed what we ordered. the lamb moussaka and the chickpea and date fritters were quite good. the ginger cheesecake didn't taste homemade, but that didn't stop us from devouring it. our server was friendly and attentive, although the service was a little awkward at times. nonetheless, i was impressed that one waiter was dealing with the entire restaurant.

side note: on a different day, we also stopped at lemon 2 go, lemon cafe's coffee shop in the regent shopping village and it was really cute!

“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013 via mobile

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Lemon. The appetizers, main courses, dessert ( and of course, the wine ) were great. We had a variety of dishes, but my lamb chops were some of the best that I've ever enjoyed. One interesting note-we had reservations at 7pm and were the only ones there for about 30 min. It started filling up soon after and had a fairly lively crowd by the time we left. Many folks dine later than we do (with our kids). Anyway, one of the best meals that we had on Provo. Will return again.

“Great fusion cuisine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

Went here on recommendation from another couple. It is a solid mixture of north
African / Mediterranean cuisine with a slight island twist. Very tasty I might add. Service was excellent, decor was interesting. Quiet, family friendly, off the beach, but worth the visit. On some nights they have additional entertainment like belly dancers etc....

“Lemon cafe”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

Quiet, off the beaten path. Small portions, but good. Priced a bit high, but not much more than the average for the island. Server was fun, and efficient.
