We had sesame seared ahi tuna, which was exceptional. Mahi mahi was also one of the best we had in a while. Steak was nice and think and super tasty.

Felt like I was going to eat in a 5 star restaurant the way they treated us. The waiters were soooo familiar with there menu that you will certainly be impressed! Great food, 3 adults we had a bottle of wine with appetizer,entree, dessert, and coffee $240 dollars US If your looking for a great meal a little pricey

I should start by saying I'm not a review writer. I rarely have the time or desire to do so. I will in this case make an exception. My wife and I managed to get away to Jaco, CR on the 12th on November for a few days and chose the Lemon Zest for our dinner. The owners had just... More

This is the other restaurant in Jaco where I remember having the best meal in town. Nice atmosphere with limited seating and very personalized service. You will try something different but always tasty here.

We went to Lemon Zest after researching restaurants in Jaco. The service was world class. The recommendations from the server made you want to get a tasting menu instead of having to pick only one thing! I ordered the steak and when it arrived it was over cooked. I had barely cut it into to realize it was medium well... More

hard to imagine you can find such a good restaurant in Jaco known more for its night life than its food. Nevertheless you will have fun listening the waiter to enumerate all the dishes, the way they are made,... the recommendations,... Fish was excellent and desserts too. the place is not so nicely decorated but food outstanding.

From the moment we got there until we left, we felt as though we had known the proprietors and staff our whole lives. And the food was terrific. Going back as soon as we can. Nick and Elaine and kids, Vero Beach, FL
