Love this place!

We have eaten at La Limena many times. We love the ceviche mixto and pretty much everything else on the menu. One of our favorite places to go.

I tried La Limena yesterday because restaurant I wanted to try wasn't open. A friend had suggested it as she picks up take-out there from time to time. I will say that the restaurant was very clean and nicely decorated. It is a Peruvian and Cuban restaurant, it looks to be family owned. The service was okay, we had to... More

It is always crowded, so plan accordingly. We always get the Peruvian chicken--moist and tasty. Prices are reasonable. Service is good.

I have regular afternoon meetings in Rockville. Rather that face peak hour traffic going home I prefer to have diner and relax before facing the roads. La Limena offers a great place to relax and have a good meal. Everything I have ever had here is good - both Cuban and Peruvian. The staff is helpful and will make suggestions.

I teach Spanish, so I invited one of my students to have lunch in this place. I arrived early, and I asked the waiter to speak in Spanish to my student. Everyone was really nice and tried to teach some words in Spanish. It was an amazing experience. The food, as always, deliciosa.

Don't get me wrong, this place serves a wonderful variety of delicious food. However, the place is very crowded and rather expensive. Compared to La Brasa, for example, which is always packed, but never feels crowded.

We noticed a number of people speaking Spanish, and i believe this Restaurant is Peruvian. Very popular at lunchtime. Food good and basic; chicken dishes are excellent.
