This is by far our favorite dining experience on Isla ! When you enter the restaurant you pass by the kitchen! The cooks are friendly and working as a perfect team. You then pass a few tables and step outside to a courtyard with upstairs...seating above it. The upstairs is awesome! Request it when you make reservations. Sergio , the owner, was right there to greet us! Great guy! Now to the food! WOW!! Start off with the hibiscus tacos. They are unbelievable and a must try! The shrimp appetizer was excellent. The mussels were good, but I have had better over the years. In our group of six we had two steak filets, both cooked outside near us perfectly and both were delicious. We had a stuffed fish which was very tasty, and we had a grilled platter for two. The latter was huge!! So damn good as well. They had some excellent drink choices and though wine menu limited it was good enough. Service was perfect!! At the end Sergio recommended his pineapple dessert. OMG! It was served in a pineapple and is to die for! This is a hidden gem that only takes CASH, has in place excellent covid protocols and if your still dumb enough to smoke, you are gonna be doing it outside the front door. We spent about $100 US a couple here and it was worth every penny and more. Thank you Limon staff and Sergio for an amazing experience! See you next year!!More

Very strict mask rules, whilst other restaurants are more relaxed. Being at the table I asked for Wifi and the answer was NO. First restaurant I had in Mexico without internet for clients. Then I asked for an ashtray and the answer was NO again....No smoking allowed. Then we received the menu and I saw the Gnoccis, but as soon as I wanted to take them the waiter said NO Gnoccis today. Third NO! ;( After dinner we asked for Brownies as desert and of course NO Brownies today. Later we asked for the check and I wanted to pay by credit card and you guessed it. Only cash! WTF Furthermore I chatted with on of the staff about the strict mask rule within the restaurant, because I never had that before. Getting to the exit, the owner put himself up with a very serious manner and said: "The rules are to be followed! Is that understood!?" His attitude was very threatening. Worst experience ever and so far in Mexico!!! Don't go there, the food is not worth it either. It was not bad, but no Wow effect either.More

This is one of those places that you expect to find on a cooking / travel program where the host says "you wouldn't expect to find a five star michellin chef in this part of town" yet, here it is. The service was superb and...the food even moreso. Chef Sergio was very attentive and very accommodating. The food was the best we had on the island in our three day stay. Tuna Tartar, Bruschetta, Grilled Platter for two, with Cucumber and lime with gin drinks. But don't forget to bring cash, cards are not accepted. I'm looking forward to returning here again.More

Sergio and his staff are top notch. The food is amazing and the atmosphere is nothing short of perfection. Eat whatever sounds great to you but when it comes to dessert, get the pineapple!

We were here in January and we were lucky enough to get in without a reservation. Most likely due to Covid and slow times for the island. From start to finish this was an excellent experience! We loved the house salad! You must get it....We ordered the carpaccio and not only was it a very generous serving (easily 4 could enjoy) it was so delicious! My boyfriend had the ribeye and it was amazingly flavorful and perfectly cooked. I had the stuffed fish which was also excellent. The atmosphere is charming and warm. Beautiful! Great service and super friendly staff, chef and servers. We have found that the best restaurants are mid to lower island locals. Get out of the hustle and bustle of the north beach area! You’ll be surprised and delighted.More

The best steak and lobster in the world!!! No lie! The lobster was freshly caught and the steak was incredibly tender. The chef/owner cooks it in front of you and takes extra pride in his presentation and delivery. What a hidden gem! A must try...for anyone who loves great food with a touch of local culture.More
