I read a review of this place in a local magazine and when we stopped to explore this little town, we decided on lunch here. It is off the main road of Ojochal. we were the only ones eating here and were seated right away outside. Waitress spoke almost no English, so be aware of that, We speak some Spanish though, so we figured it out and ordered. They were out of the main soup on special, but subbed in a pumpkin soup that was super yummy. I had a shrimp and rice meal and my husband had a pasta with spicy marinara sauce. Smoothies were great and ambiance and service was great. Really pretty garden area. Highly recommend.

We dropped into this restaurant without a reservation. The staff could not have made us fell more welcome. The setting is lovely, beautiful decor inside and out. We started with the Gorgonzola salad, and as suggested, the goat cheese salad. Both were fantastic. We ordered one main, the yellowfin tuna, as we wanted to share it. The server asked if we wanted it on two separate plates. We said sure, if convenient. It was served on two separate plates with considerable effort made by the kitchen with the presentation.
The dessert and coffee were excellent and the restaurant was a good value.
We would love to back some time.

It's nice to go to a foreign country- any country for that matter and find great food and service as was found at Citrus. Lovely atmosphere, great service, delicious food and wine all for $75 for 2. Memorable and highly recommended. Not easy to find in CR.

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!!
