Los scargots son deliciosos y el cerdo en salsa de ciruelas aún mejor. Un tiramizú muy muy bueno.
I fell in love with the food in this restaurant. I ate delicious scargots and the pork was even better! The tiramizú was pretty good.

Citrus is an elegant restaurant - as elegant as one would expect to find anywhere in North America. There is beautiful outdoor dining, although the chairs are a bit low for the tables, and do not move easily on the pebbled patio. The menu is quite large and varied, although there are really no good options for children or teenagers.
Be prepared to be eaten by mosquitos or gnats yourself if you eat outdoors - insect repellant is recommended.
The pork tenderloin and filet mignon are recommended!
Prices are equivalent to North American restaurants of the same caliber - so pricey for Costa Rica.

The owner of our little rental cabin recommended Citrus. Unremarkable looking when you drive by during the day but at night it opens into a delightful open air restaurant with a world class menu and a long list of famous people who have dined there. The food was absolutely excellent, the service unobstrusive but efficient, friendly and helpful. Not inexpensive, but well worth the price.

A great place for foodies. Citrus has delicious original appetizers and main courses. We have eaten there twice in the past 5 days, including the Christmas menu dinner. A wonderful location next to the river, you feel like you are sitting in a rainforest canopy. Friendly attentive service for 4 out of 5 staff. The fifth was only there one of the two nights, so hopefully is not a regular.

Nice river side place with about 12 tables set inside an artsy building and patio. We had calamares, steak tartare, salads. Inventive cuisine with attention to quality. Cocktails, wine and beer list are fine, service needs to be guided but is friendly. This is one of five or so restaurants that makes up the "SABOR DE OJOCHAL" association, making this community the gourmet centre of the Costa Ballena with a significant francophone community, including a fantastic french baker. This restaurant excels in fusion cuisine.
