Atmosphere and service were fabulous. The first dishes we ordered were disappointing. (the wok meals had too much sauce to our liking were too salty and bland) This however was remedied immediately, as the waitress offered a sea bass / pasta dish in exchange which was more to our liking. So before ordering off the menu, take your time and... More

We had a wonderful meal at Citron and would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Playa Del Coco. The wine was excellent, the food was delicious and well presented. We had a table outside that was very good. Our service was exceptional, everyone was very attentive.

Memorable evening with friends. The food was absolutely delicious and the portions very generous. Staff was very attentive and knowledgable. Wine was very good. The seared tuna was excellent as was the tuna tartare - actually everything was top notch. Would definitely recommend.

We stayed in Coco for 6 nights and sampled some wonderful restaurants but our favorite was Citron. The food was creative and excellent but what really made it special were the drinks at the bar served by Jeffrey. He really took his time with each cocktail. No mixes here, fresh squeezed limes and descriptions of the drinks had us coming... More

We ate on the patio and had wonderful service and food. Good wine selection. Creme brulee was one of the best I've ever had.

Not my favorite - a little expensive and I much prefer local cuisine. It is located next yo an excellent artisan shop called Congo where you can have a light lunch or coffee.

just get to Citron as fast as you can! The food is eclectic and delicious, artfully presented by very friendly but exceptionally professional staff. From drinks to meal to dessert, hands down the best dining experience I have had in years!

This is one of the best restaurant experiences we have had in a long time. The chocolate martini and passion fruit margarita are extraordinary. Jeffrey, the bartender/waiter could excel in a top New York restaurant. The GM, Juan Carlos, makes you feel at home. He knows his business because his staff makes customers feel special. Carmelized pork tenderloin and sea... More

We were searching for an air conditioned dining open in Coco, this fit the bill. We were two couples and we had the shrimp curry with a small bowl of rice (gluten free), a crispy chicken salad, Sea bass with mashed potato garnished with a dime size dollop of kale & a beef stir fry. Taking it from the top;... More

There were 6 of us for dinner and we sat outside on the patio. Since we were staying in condo in the Pacifico complex it was a short walk to the restaurant. From start to finish everything was excellent. A couple of us were going to order a salmon dish but the waiter told us that the salmon they received... More
