Great spot

We had dinner there inside and it was outstanding. Great menu and good wine list. Inside the Pacifico Plaza shopping area. Definitely worthy of being in the top 10

By far the best food we had in Playas Del Coco. My wife and I travel extensively and dine out several times per week. This compares to the finest restaurants we've been to for quality of food and service. We had Shrimp Bisque, Fine Herb Grilled Chicken with Risotto, Sea Bass Fideua, Watermelon Martinis and Chocolate Soufle for dessert. We... More

Jeffry and Michael and wonderful hosts and the service is impeccable~! . They have a limited menu, which I love, however, the presentation and the taste is just outstanding. Hats off to the chef and team. The atmosphere is lovely, if you want a romantic evening or to share and evening with friends, sitting back and enjoying a great bottle... More

My group was able to order a good variety of dishes and try quite a bit of the menu. We really enjoyed everythibg that we ate in Citron. We wanted to sit on the patio but mosquitos were bad and they didn't have bug spray. Most restaurants in this part of the world do. Would go back for sure. Recommended.

Over priced and seriously lacking in the food department. Party of 6 and 5 of us didn't like our meal. The supposed dijon red wine reduction served with the filet was pure mustard and completely over powering.

Ate here based on TA rating. Nice spot in Pacifico. Really enjoyed the Caprese Salad, burger was heavy on the carmelized onions and BBQ sauce, so a unique taste. Very quiet cool spot to hide out in Coco and enjoy a glass of Vino and pleasant lunch.

We went here three times during our two week vacation. The restaurant has a contemporary, laid back vibe. A central bar serves fantastic cocktails, with homemade ingredients including freshly-made juices. A delicious olive tapenade with crisp flatbread crisps arrives with the menus. A semi-open kitchen delivers consistently delicious food. Memorable were the roasted tomato soup with tapenade and dumplings, with... More

This place has amazing food, a lot of warmth, and Costa Rican charm. We Always get a warm pura vida greeting from staff Michael, Jeffry and Alehandro (Nando Boom) and owners Claudia and Javier.

A very nice restaurant near the beach in Coco in a little shopping arcade with high end stores. The decor is very modern in a contemporaty way but not cold or uninviting. The salads were fresh and the main course I had was pork and sweet potato. It was nicely seasoned and very tasty. Great for an informal gathering of... More
