We stayed in Coco for a week and after not finding much in the way of good food we came upon a gem with Citron. The restaurant was clean, modern, air conditioned, and had great service. Most importantly, our meal was excellent. This is a must stop for anyone in Coco.The sea bass rissotto, pork tenderloin, shrimp in rum sauce,... More

We went to this restaurant twice while we were staying in Playa del Coco for a week in April. Once we went as a couple and the second time with our children. The food all around was great, however the seabass in orzo was fantasic! We were very well looked after on both occasions. The staff was pleasant, knowledgable and... More

The atmosphere is very tranquil and while we sat outside in the dim lighting it was very romantic. The food was delicious although portions were on the small side.

After reading the last few reviews we weren't sure if this would be a good option. However from the outside the restaurant looks very nice so we decided to give it a try. The menu is interesting with some very unique fusion options and we tried the Corvina with pasta and the Tenderloin Dijon. Both were absolutely fantastic and without... More

This place we walked past a couple times b4 going. After we went, we knew we wanted to go back. The service was outstanding. Literally you take a drink of your water and 30 seconds later they are there refilling it. The food was spectacular and all of the staff was very friendly. Such a small kitchen but they work...

The hamburger and as simple as that sounds was delicious and full of wonderful flavors. For dessert we shared a chocolate soufflé. We sat outside and it was warm and wonderful. We will definitely recommend this restaurant.
