Classy restaurant with cool vibe and great food. Super friendly (but not overbearing) staff made excellent suggestions for a divine meal. Don't miss the steak carpaccio (enough with the ceviche already!) which melts in your mouth. The sea bass with orzo and cream is a welcome change of pace without being too rich. Next time we're in Costa Rica we... More

This is our go to place for enjoyable, quiet meals exquisitely prepared. The dessert menu needs an overhaul and the wine list is good.

Our food was delicious and the cocktails were amazing! Our 5 year old tried the Nutella crepe for dessert -- I'm not sure I've ever seen him like something so much! Our server was friendly and attentive. We will be back!

Situated next to Hard Rock Hotel in Pacifico Plaza this restaurant offers both indoor and outdoor dining. We found locals and tourists dining. The food was fresh, well prepared and excellent. Try the Risotto!

The restaurant has a fun, chic décor with outdoor seating, as well. The menu has different entrees that you don't find in other restaurants in the area.

This little restaurant in the Pacifico shopping center had top class food and amazing cocktails. Our server understood how to deal with our kid too. This isn't a bargain shop--it's a treat yourself kinda place, but well worth it.

We decided to visit this restaurant since we hadn't been there for a while. Food is relatively tasty. I order the fish with swiss chard and mashed potatoes. There was maybe one leaf of swiss chard under the fish that sat on top of the mash potatoes. Dessert consisted of 2 crepes ($12 USD) and I had a club soda... More

We were staying in Pacifico for a month and this was one of our favorite dinners. Unfortunately it was raining so we couldn't sit outside, which we did at most restaurants in Costa Rica, but we had a great meal. My only reservations were that their wine list was too short and not great, and they kept the lights on... More

We had a wonderful meal at Citron our first night in Costa Rica. Great service and our meals were very satisfying. A little pricey, but worth it

Located in a shopping center - so its easy to park - Citron has a very nice, air-conditioned indoor space. Food was all tasty and fresh. Service was excellent. Menu was varied enough to satisfy our family of 4. This restaurant would be popular anywhere - including New York City. We would absolutely go back!
