Amazing food

We went for dinner to Citrus based on TripAdvisor reviews and we were certainly not disappointed. We enjoyed our appetizers and fish meals so much that we went back the following night to try different dishes! Great staff and atmosphere...

This restaurant was recommended to us by friends and it did not disappoint. It is a wonderfully quaint restaurant with excellent service and amazing food/drink. To start off with we enjoyed a wonderful appetizer - some kind of pork spring roll I think called "Nems). The flavouring was delightful. My husband had a craft beer which he stated was very... More

We went here with another couple and had a really good time. We had made reservations a couple days before and our table was ready and waiting for us when we got there. Had a couple bottles of wine, several appetizers (shared), 4 wonderful meals, and a couple of desserts. The food was really good as was the service. Very... More

This little unassuming place has a great atmosphere, just inside Ojochal off the Costanera highway. The meals were very good. I had escargot for an appetizer and the shrimp, both well presented and ample sized. All four of us enjoyed different meals. We agreed this was one of the best restaurants in the area.

We were here on a family trip, had great food and even got the children's food out first so they could eat :) We were also to see a pair of Toucans right across the street. They had a great mix on the menu and food that you don't typically see in Costa Rica. I would recommend it to anyone,... More

We ended up there because we NEEDED to have a snack after 2hour-stroll along Playa Tortuga. It was around 3pm. I liked the way it is decorated, I like the music for that moment of the day. Calm and relaxing. There weren't many people and I suppose this is due to the time. Maybe it was busier before, at lunchtime... More
