We ate outside and received very good food and very good service. We especially enjoyed the creme brulee.

Wow! We absolutely loved this restaurant! It was probably our overall favorite for the entire week! Everything was just perfect. The service was superb. The atmosphere was lovely. The food was amazing! The menu was diverse enough to satisfy all 6 of us (including 4 small children). We decided to sit outside on the patio which was so nice and... More

After a week and a half of typical Costa Rican food (all very good), our citron food seemed absolutely amazing!! The restaurant decor was modern, peaceful and very well done- no hint of the craziness of coco beach just a few blocks down. The staff- Alejandro was our server-was so kind and we enjoyed getting to know him a bit... More

We went here while staying at Pacifico. It's a smaller intimate restaurant with a modern interior dining area and a very nice outdoor dining area. We sat at an outside table and received excellent service. Prior to ordering, we were brought some free munchies consisting of cracker type sticks and a spread/dip made from chopped black olives, garlic, and olive... More

Both my girlfriend and I fell in love with this restaurant. Staff was very nice and food was amazing. I would definitely be a regular if this place was located in the place I live!!

Fabulous service, ambiance, drinks/wine selection, and delicious food at a reasonable price! The reviews on Trip Advisor led me to believe it would be a pricy restaurant but comparing it to back home and the local restaurants here in Coco it's well priced. Perhaps the people writing those reviews eat mostly at Soda type restaurants which certainly still has good... More

This place is fantastic! It was our favorite meal we had in Costa Rica and I would rate this as one of my top 5 meals I've ever eaten! When we are back in Costa Rica we WILL definitely go back. We were in a party of 8 and everyone enjoyed their meals and raved about it afterwards. Do yourself... More

We have been at Citron several times, their menu needs to be revised nothing has changed since they opened the restaurant. The staff needs to learn some manners when serving the guests, you do not serve a dish or a drink over the customer shoulder or the head..... They have to adjust the prices on their menu, $10.00 for a... More

We enjoyed a nice dinner with simple pasta dishes. There is nothing unique in this place or anything special with their food but it was prepared in a decent way. Not everyone of the staff was familiar with their wines. Service was friendly though. At home in Helsinki I wouldn't choose this place but it was a nice break from... More

We visited Costa Rica and dined in Playa Coco several times. Citron stood out as the best meal and service. The Sea Bass was prepared perfectly and was light and flavourful. The wine selection was very good and reasonably priced. We sat on the outdoor deck on a and the service was exemplary which made for a beautiful evening.
