“Like a private club”
Reviewed March 28, 2014 via mobile

Lemon Zest is like a private club- from the unobtrusive yet excellent service to the creative and delicious food. Our experience was wonderful, from the greeting at the door to our charming waiter, to the fabulous food selections- quite an unexpected dining experience in the midst of downtown Jaco. We will definitely return on our next trip and recommend to our friends

“Great experience!”
Reviewed March 26, 2014 via mobile

Our dinner was awesome! Making choices was the toughest part, the menu was terrific and the specials offered some really nice creations on the chefs part. I could have made dinner from the Lobster 'buffalo bites' and the Ahi tuna app's. The bleu cheese crusted filet was perfect as was the snapper fillet, and sushi-grade Ahi steak. All dishes had an interesting mix of veg and starch combos
The waiters were very good, knowing the menu and specials to a tee and providing the right amount of attentiveness. We met Nellie ( the owner) and found we had a mutual acquaintance, small world! It was great being in the middle of Jaco and having such a good dining option!

“Very nice!”
Reviewed March 26, 2014

Many people recommended Lemon Zest while we visited Jaco for the day. Service was very good and food really great. The owners visited our table and were very gracious. We met an NFL player and his fiance as well as a family visiting from our home town; small world. We enjoyed our dining experience very much provided by owners and staff that really care about doing a great job. Thank you!

“Celebration!”
Reviewed March 26, 2014

Visited this restaurant at the end of February 2014. The food was good. Our server (I forgot his name), had to be the best server I've ever had; domestic or international. The owners greeted us and showed great hospitality!!
