Had dinner at Limons exactly three weeks ago today,and we are still speaking fondly of it.Sergio has a very chic,inviting atmosphere going. We sat outside,and it was very cool with carefully place fans.our server was very helpful with advice and suggestions.there was no tuna that night,so the bruchetta won.Jim had the filet.Sergio sent us the hibiscus tacos and they were delicious.The drinks were wonderful,and we enjoyed talking to Sergio about his move from the north beach club to his lovely restaurant.We hope he has a long and prosperous run with Lemons. Can't wait for the next trip,Sincerly, Carrie & Jim from Kentucky

Dinner at Limon the other night was once again a truly exceptional experience. The atmosphere, the hosts and the food were all wonderful.

We started with the Shrimp Tempura appetizer. It was delicious, perfectly prepared. I had the Seared Tuna in Hibiscus Sauce served over a bed of rice with a side of mixed veggies. The tuna was grilled just the way I like, medium rare. One of my friends had the Chicken Satay and said that it was great. The other friend had the Coconut Shrimp and she loved it. To end our meal we shared the Ghirardelli Chocolate Brownie or what I call the OMG Brownie! The brownie is sinfully decadent.

Limon is a must for whether you are celebrating a special occasion or just want to experience a new dining pleasure on Isla Mujeres.

Thank you Charrissa and Sergio for the great meal and your hospitality.

Food was 5 star all the way! Beautifully presented & delicious! Sergio & Charissa have a winner! The chicken satay was excellent, & my husband's filet was perfectly cooked. Shrimp tempura appetizer was the best I've ever had!

We visited Limon on our first night into Isla. If you are traveling the island from the South end, as you pass by the Super Xpress mid Island (across from the little park), you make a right and go uphill. It's on your right. I had been eyeing this great little place and knew I wanted to try it! We were so, so happy with our choice! It's decorated like any first class restaurant in a larger city. Sergio and his wife and son visited with us while we dined and were such lovely, welcoming people. It isn't very often that you get to know the owners of restaurant so personally in larger cities...this is one of my favorite parts of visiting Isla. These people genuinely appreciate your business...what a treat! I had a margarita which was probably one of the better ones I had while on the Island, nice strong drink with a great flavor! We had some hibiscus tacos...I never would have guessed to try this out, but we were so happy that we did. They were really, really good (and a vegetarian dish, if you are vegetarian, this is a great option!)! We also had some coconut shrimp, definitely the best I've ever had! Service was perfect...very attentive waiters, who took care of us all the while remaining in the background. Thank you so much, Sergio for making our first dinner on your beautiful Island, so special. We really enjoyed your company and your food and your restaurant! Can't wait to return!
