Favorite place in Playa Coco

They really went out of their way to accommodate us. The food was really quite good. We each ordered a different dish... read more

We dined here for the first time during a recent visit to Costa Rica. The food and wine was out of this world. They serve a hamburger that is the best kept secret in town. Great staff and a very chic spot. A must do!

The restaurant was absolutely beautiful and right next a wonderful shop with amazing hand made things by local artists. The restaurant was located in the Pacifico Village in Playa de Coco. We had the special Citron burger which was out of this world. Great food and service!

We have been to Citron several times since it opened a few years ago. The patio is beautiful and so is the sophisticated interior. The food is very upscale and delicious. Service is nice as well. I plan to go back there while in Coco at the end of the summer. Worth the cost.

Quite the surprise! Went out to enjoy a quiet dinner with my husband and loved the ambience, service, and amazing freshly made entrees and desserts. It has been a while since we have left a restaurant raving about our food and the taste all the way home. This is a must try location during your visit to Playas del Coco.

Due to a lot of freak high winds during our trip, we were unable to enjoy the pleasure of dining outside here. That being said, inside still has a nice atmosphere. We went with two other couples (my boyfriend's parents and their friends) and we all loved our food. I think every one of us got the roasted tomato soup... More

The decor is minimalist making use of different textures of stone and bamboo. A bar flanks the inside dining room which opens onto a large patio overlooking the main street on one side and a lovely tropical courtyard on the other. The chef is a master concocting delightful dishes beautifully presented. Michael and Jeffrey are very welcoming and professionally trained... More

The atmosphere is fantastic. The staff was very attentive. I had the beef tenderloin mushroom risotto and it could not have been better. My husband had the shrimp bisque my daughter had Seabass fideau, amazing. Must try the lychee martini😍

I don't know how to rate this because we had different experiences on different nights. The first night, I had sea bass on mashed potatoes, and that was good to excellent. My wife had the sea bass risotto, and while i was put off by bits of seabass in risotta, it turned out to be excellent - the best thing... More
