We visited this restaurant for supper one evening. We were staying in Ojochal with relatives and they picked Citrus for dinner. We all had something different and everything was delicious. We normally don't order dessert but just had to because the dinner was so good! It was a higher end restaurant but the prices were comparable to what we would pay at home.

We have been to Costa Rica four times and always find this place a treat amidst the rice and beans of most of the other restaurants. Their fish is always fresh and wonderful and they make nice margaritas too. It is perhaps a bit pricier than some of the others in the area but we feel it's truly worth the difference. We often go several times during our visits to the Uvita area and are never disappointed. Please don't ever close!!

The best thing about this restaurant is its open dining room and sheltered garden. It makes for an attractive venue.

The menu is French in orientation, and the sort of thing you'd find in any regional US city, with lots of dIshes heavy on cream sauces. Allowing for this the cooking was OK, yet the portions are really too large for the type of rich food being offered. A starter salad of baby greens, nut, apple and Gorgonzola was rated as very good, although for European tastes the serving was too large. A crispy calamari starter was a bit dull. A main course of sea bass in a white wine sauce was liked, whilst a scallop and shrimp concoction was again a little bland.

Service is good, and they were able to find us a table at short notice on a busy Friday evening.

Two starters, two mains with one glass of wine and two bottles of sparking water came to $100, but in an area not over endowed with good restaurants this seems to about par on pricing.

We had a very good meal at the Citrus. Loved it, and the service was excellent. However we found it a little bit expensive for our budget.

A delightfull restaurant along the river in Ojochal. Our server Natasha was very knowledgeable and friendly, and the food was incredible. The best ceviche I tried in all of Costa Rica. Excellent desserts and full wine list.
