Food was excellent. We did not have a reservation, but they accommodate us. Atmosphere very cozy. Enjoyed our meal. However, they do not take any credit cards, cash only. I recommend this restaurant.

Yes the best fine dining on Isla! Sergio and his staff were all A++. Incredible meals, service, drinks. Get a reservation or you won't get in to this popular fine dining experience. I had the Rib Eye with chilies. Fantastic!

What a magnificent restaurant! Thank you to our friend for taking us to Limon and introducing this great place! First of all, warm thank you to the amazing and professional staff! Not to mention the restaurant owner, who is the soul of Limon! You feel...yourself welcomed and the service is great! I bet everything on the menu is excellent, but specially the tuna loin and pineapple dessert will have an honorable mention. Can’t wait for coming back to Isla Mujeres and Limon! Muchas gracias!More

I’ve lost count how many times I’ve dined at Limoń however what matters about all my experiences is the quality of fresh seafood, top notch table service and the warm and welcoming atmosphere. Every time I come here I feel like part of the family...and leave with the longing to return as soon as possible. If you haven’t been here go, you will not regret the experience. If you have been here then I know you’ll be welcomed back with open arms.More

We ate here our first night on the Island per our Airbnb host recommendation and we our so glad we went! The food and service was amazing. Even though we only had 4 nights at Isla we knew we had to go back. We went...our last night as well, and the staff were so grateful we returned and took time to talk with us and made the night special. The Mussels app, lobster Sergio and seafood pasta were some of our favorites! 5 stars all around, from food, presentation, service and welcoming atmosphere!More

We came to Limon after our original dinner plan fell through. Our only wish was that we could have made reservations to sit upstairs. It was gorgeous. The steaks were cooked to absolute perfection and the service was fantastic. Highly recommend

We had reservations for our anniversary dinner (2nd night on the island) at this restaurant made by our house manager and we were so happy we tried. The concept of this restaurant is so neat, it’s like a treehouse and the chef grills and chats...with you and in front of you. I loved our appetizer of bruschetta and my chicken satay dish. My husband was on the fence about his stuffed fish, I think after watching all the steaks being grilled he wanted that instead. Unfortunately we didn’t have room for dessert but the table next to us (family of 3) was given bananas foster and it looked amazing! I would definitely go back and try again and want to sit up in the trees.More

The food and service were both spectacular. Chef Sergio come to your table to greet his customers. We had a family of 10, mostly from NOLA, but from Memphis and Orlando as well. One restaurant owner in the family and obviously a family from NOLA...knows how to cook. Not a single person had a negative comment about our meals. From the appetizers to the entrees, (Lobster tail, Coconut Shrimp, Grouper with pasta, Stuffed Fish, Shrimp with 4 Chile's sauce), it was all FANTASTIC!!!!More

Felt pampered by the staff and appreciated the informative visit from chef Sergio. We came for a lite meal. Especially, the appetizers were super. Loved the Hibiscus Tacos flavor and creativity. We enjoyed all dishes. If I return to the island, my list would include...steaks or the lobster... seeing them, I missed out!More

My wife, Heidi, and I first visited Limon in December of 2021 for her birthday! The experience then was amazing, so we made reservations again for this trip. They haven't disappointed us yet. The service is always amazing. Our waiter, Alan, made sure we always...had what we needed. He even made the suggestion that when we ordered 3 appetizers, we might want to split an entree. Glad we listened to that suggestion. We started with Tuna Tartare, Beef Carpaccio, and Brochette. They were all amazing and very generously portioned. Side note - our breakfast the next morning was amazing too. For dinner we split an Avacado Salad and had the 3 Chile Filet Mignon! Sergio the owner cooks all of the meats on his nice outside pit. It was cooked to perfection. I couldn't help myself and also order the Pineapple Sergio Style. Obviously Sergio cooks the pineapple on the pit in butter and spices and then puts the cooked pineapple back into the shell over vanilla ice cream. This dessert is so delicious. Truly an amazing experience all around. Thanks to everyone at Limon who went out of their way for such a wonderful dinner.More

My fiancé and I visited this restaurant last night. I had been there one time years ago, and my fiancé had never been. The food was outstanding. We had mussels as an appetizer and they were delicious. We split a salad and the glazed pork...chop as an entree and there were both amazing.

We made reservations about a month in advance knowing that we would be there during a busy weekend. I made a mistake though and wrote the wrong date in my calendar. So after a day exploring the island and running home to shower and change...before finding a cab out; we end up a day earlier than our reservation. We apologized and tried to leave saying that we would come back tomorrow. I felt so dumb about the mistake. Sergio recognized something at the door and came over and said that he could make it work and that we should stay. What an amazing evening. Probably the most romantic dinner I’ve had. The meal was amazing. I had coconut shrimp and my Partner had a seared tuna. We also loved our beef carpaccio appetizer and Sergio’s pineapple-we’ve tried to recreate it at home😊. We ate in the garden area- I think they added a table? It was a full moon and a it was above the trees. Just an all over amazing experience! Thank you Sergio for all the wine you shared from your table. Outstanding night, meal, service, mood.More

We finally made it to Limon on our third stay on the island and it will definitely be back! The food was excellent and the servers knowledgeable and friendly. We did not mind the strict mask policy. I felt sorry for the servers having to...deal with other diners who repeatedly refused to wear a mask when not seated. It’s not that hard to do.More
