“Creative menu”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

This is not your typical "Mexican" food. Though somewhat pricey the food was amazing-we had short ribs and the rack of lamb with ceviche appetizer. Portions were generous. This is a tiny place so reservations are needed. We loved the "old world" decor---service was excellent and they took their time with serving us, which we enjoyed. My husband does not drink wine so I appreciated that their wine by the glass options were excellent.

“Brunch!! Caliente Margarita is a MUST!!”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

We visited Limones during a food tour of Asheville and were immediately impressed. Based on the recommendations of several others, we planned to visit for brunch on a Sunday. We were seated after about a 15 minute wait, but others with parties larger than 2 had to wait a bit longer. Service was excellent and very attentive, even with a packed restaurant. My husband and Ishared the ceviche of the day-again we were told we HAD to try it by several others who recommended the place) and we were scaing the bottom of the dish it was so yummy. I had the Huevos M (SP?) while my husband had the chile rellenos and we were both very impressed with our choices. In addition, we had the caliente margarita...a perfect mix of heat and citrus with a splash of berry to keep it interesting. To top ot all off, we gorged ourselves on churros and hot chocolate for dessert. Could not have been happier with our last meal in Asheville.

Very nice food. Ceviche tasty. Scallops perfect and large, and shellfish stew excellent. Will return. Not cheap but nice quality.

“"Lively" or loud?”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

This restaurant was packed, obviously popular but our service was very slow ( servers were busy). It is so loud our group of 5 could barely hear each other. Food was OK with large servings.
