We stayed in Ojochal one night, went for pizza and then stopped at Citrus for dessert. ABSOLUTELY delicious!! The restaurant and bar have a very cool vibe - a bit like Nantucket meets the jungle. The staff was welcoming and fun to chat with.

We had dinner here during a 5 night stay in Ojochal. This restaurant was one of the reasons we chose this area, and it certainly lived up to expectations. I love great food, but hate trying to eat it and feeling guilty or shamed because you don't do wine pairings, get confused by excess eating utensils, etc. None of that... More

We stumbled upon this place totally by accident, but thank Heavens we did - what an amazing restaurant! We had the Tom Kha Gai soup (daily special) and the Ceviche as a starter, and Rib Eye Steak (daily special) and the Mahi Mahi fish tacos. For dessert the 'Three Mini Tasters' and the Maracuja Mousse. Foodgasms. Presentation of the dishes,... More

This was our first visit to the Uvita area of Costa Rica and Citrus was recommend as a great place to dine. We were not disappointed the high quality of food and service. Our young server was charming, very friendly but not hovering. This charming French inspired restaurant offered a great wine selection (you have to try the Padrillos Malbec)... More

Citrus is only rated #3 of the few restaurants in Ojochal. The food and wine was excellent and in a country that really doesn't specialize in great food (I love the country mind you), this was an awesome meal. I had a tenderloin with a chocolate sauce that included Morrocan spices... amazing and succulent. I would highly recommend this restaurant... More

The town of Ojochal is hardly upscale, but this restaurant is a divine find among the ruts. We went twice for lunch and each time had delicious and interesting meals. The menu has a bit of everything - beef, fish, poultry, vegetarian - and the preparation is a fusion of flavours and styles. I had a Vietnamese noodle bowl one... More

We really enjoyed our meal at Citrus - and the fact that it was open for lunch was a bonus. My ceviche was excellent as were our mains. Service was friendly, efficient and fast. If you are staying in Ojochal or even just passing by then Citrus has to be worth a visit.
