Reservation at 5 pm because we were driving from Dominical and didn't want to get lost. We were taken by the beauty of Citrus design. The tiny details and quality of menu make for a restaurant that would be starred in New York or D.C., where we eat often. The place is inspired. Enjoyed the foie gras, egg rolls, buttery... More

The title says it all, four of us dined at Citrus and the varied menu meant that we all chose different meals. The food is probably best described as fusion in style, but each meal and each course were delicious, and the wine list has a mixture of South American and world wines. The dining area is large enough to... More

Went to Citrus last night and love their food! The filet was delicious! The atmosphere is comfortable but can also be romantic. The menu selections are varied and the presentation of the food is beautifully executed. The only thing I need to mention is that you might need to let the waiter know that you prefer your salad prior to... More

We traveled to Ojochal to eat at Citrus because we had eaten there before (two years ago) and had such a good experience. What a beautiful quaintly decorated place with gorgeous place settings. The drinks we ordered were lovely. I had a Citrus Daiquiri that was amazing with a hint of turmeric in the flavors that help to make the... More

Stopped by for dinner on a Sunday night. Kind of funny because as we entered the entire restaurant it was COMPLETELY empty, we were then greeted by the host and he asked "do you have a reservation?" made me laugh. However, shortly after customers did start arriving. The menu is primarily French and portion are as usually small. We ordered... More

Be careful when driving to Ojochal. Its easy to miss. Actually, it's really easy. This little village doesn't exist. It's a dirt road where some houses are by hazard build next to it, just to give a reason that there exists a dirt road. But this is only the first glance, the first impression. You must look a bit closer... More
