This place is just amazing. We loved Sergio's old place on the beach and we were really looking forward to checking this place out. We were not disappointed. When we arrived last week in the early evening, Sergio was standing out front and helped us find a place to park the golf cart, then escorted the four of us in to his charming little restaurant. While we sat in the beautifl courtyard surrounded by tropical plants, he told us such entertaining stories about life on the island. Our food was beyond delicious. It was a really memorable dining experience. This place is definitely worth a ride from the centro.

Since Limon was highly recommended by a friend, we decided to go for dinner.
Limon was a dining experience rather than a dinner. The setting is tasteful and welcoming. The menu offered many savory options and the food was every bit as delicious as described on the menu.
The real highlight, and what completely rounded out our evening, was the hospitality, warmth and energy of Sergio, the owner and chef. We had some nice dinners on the island during our 15 day stay but none came close to being on par with our experience at Limon.
Our first dinner at Limon was so impressive that we went a second time a few days later.
We'd highly recommend Limon. We're looking forward to having dinner there again the first night of our next trip to Isla Mujeres.

My wife, daughter and myself dined here the other night. The food was wonderful and so was Sergio. He took care of us personally and was very charming. We will back every time we are on Isla Mujeres. Thanks

We happened upon Limon while looking for another place. It looked inviting so we decided to try it. Good decision. A menu with enough choices that all sounded so good, it was difficult to choose. Shrimp with three Chile Sauce got the nod and it was excellent. Service was great, the owner very friendly and accommodating.

I concur with the other reviewers--Limon is the best restaurant on Isla Mujeres! The food is superb; my fiance delighted in the textures and flavors of the three kabobs marinated in olive oil and rosemary, and I relished every bite of the mussels au gratin, which are prepared in a garlic aioli sauce and browned under a broiler with a parmesan cheese topping. It's absolutely delicious! The food is beyond excellent, but what makes Limon truly exceptional is the chef himself. Sergio is charismatic and gregarious, regaling his guests with colorful stories of his past experiences. He is also very generous. When I raved about how good the mussels were, he gave me the recipe! Now, how many chefs are willing to share their recipes!?!!? We will definitely return to Limon the next time we visit Isla. Muchas gracias, Sergio!
