Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We stayed in Sawtell for several nights and ate in Lime Mexican which was close to our Airbnb house. Had a lovely evening - great food and a fab atmosphere - highly recommend it😀

Got takeaway from this place and when going up to order our dinner, we were advised by the waitress that we would need to order via the QR code/online as she doesn’t have time to service takeaway customers! While the attitude of the staff member...was disappointing, the food didn’t disappoint. Good size servings and great tasting food, although the chips served with the nachos were fried and it would have been perfect if they weren’t. That was my only fault with the food! Whilst I get that the restaurant can get busy, any customer should be welcomed regardless of dine in or Take away!More

Very good food. Friendly staff but they need to rethink the way customers pay their bills. Not convenient and very impersonal and wasted time at the end of the meal. Customer service from this prospective is NIL.

Very large meals, I just thought the flavour didn't quite hit the point. Just being critical really but Mexican cuisine has come a long way locally and the competition is hot.

Tried to get a Margarita after dinner. Lots of people still dining and stools at the bar only to be told on two occasions that they were closed. It was 8:30 on a Saturday night 🤪 what ate you thinking? Obviously you have too much...business to worry about disappointing people.More

We planned our visit and booked a dog friendly table. Food was lovely, portion sizes were large and high quality. Staff were great very efficient and attentive. Be sure to book and plan your visit. They are very busy.

The drinks waiter, emrah, came to our table, which we had booked, and we told him we were having trouble ordering with the QR code on the table. He had a quick look at my friends phone then grudgingly said he could take our drinks...order but they were short staffed and there were a lot of people in the restaurant before us and we were probably “just walk ins”! We told him we had booked the table, we were trying to find what we wanted on the paper menu and in the end we only ordered one drink as he seemed anxious to leave our table. We are 2 locals and the manner of this waiters service left much to be desired. Jess’ service on the other hand was impeccable. It’s only thanks to her that we didn’t leave before ordering our food.More

Wow! How rude. The guy who greeted us was so abrupt, obviously stressed out and unable to do his job. He was pushy, rude and dismissive. I’m an ED nurse, much more stress working in an ED department than a Mexican restaurant. If you can’t...deal with your job, don’t do it! Food was nice. Definitely won’t go back though due to the customer service. He didn’t even have the patience to take our order. Considering you have to pay a booking (holding fee) when you book online, atrocious.More

Came here with 4 adults and 2 young children. Seated quickly and helpful service with ordering. Food came quite quickly and everytbing was spectacular. All the dishes we had were vegetarian and were well worth coming for. Children had the kids menu and that worked...really wellMore

Went there as a group of 3, guy who greeted us a front, not sure of his name but dark hair and accent, needs to work on his customer service skills. Made us feel like we were a complete inconvenience, we ended saying don’t worry...about it and walked away. Obviously don’t want or need the service. Went for Indian across the road instead and it was delicious!More

The main street of Sawtell reminds of Noosa 20 years ago. Lots of energy and vibrant retsuarants. Lime Mexican is one of the best. This was my 2nd time there. The food was excellent but it was the service that makes this place great. The...staff are so friendly and can't do enogh for you. Big thanks to the staff for another enjoyable night. I will be back.More
