This restaurant is truly fantastic. It could easily hold its own in New York or Paris, but since it is in San Salvador, the prices are extremely reasonable. I've been there four times now and I've never had a disappointing meal, but the stuffed portobello is to die for. Their menu seems to change seasonally, but if you see it,... More

From the layout of the kitchen and finger food bar; to the restaurants own meat smoke house, home gowned spices and innovative marriages of... More

Inventive and delicious menu fusing local ingredients with tradition European fare like gnocchi. Love, love, love the plantain gnocchi. The only things I would recommend would be the apple martinis. Appetizers are about $7 and main courses are $18-$22.

Citron is one of the top two or three restaurants in San Salvador. It's located in what used to be a private home with beautiful modern architecture and interior design. The food is loosely based on Salvadoran cuisine but with a contemporary international twist. Many of their ingredients come from the back yard garden, and they make others in-house, like... More

If you like fusion cuisine with some locally inspired dishes this is the place. Very elegant and upmarket with a good choice of wine and a good service

Before dining at Citron, I had never been to a restaurant where I could have ordered and been happy with any appetizer, salad, entree, or dessert. Every item on the menu sounded delicious. Luckily, we (3 persons) agreed that the menu description was translated onto the plate. The food was delicious. The beautiful surroundings, refined service, and excellent food made... More

This was our second visit and overall my wife and I were very happy. The atmosphere is great and the service is over the top but charming. What holds this restaurant back from getting 5 stars is the menu. We were here in January and the menu (just 8 entrees or so) is almost exactly the same. It is very... More
