We enjoyed our visit to LemonZest so much we went back twice during our 12 day trip to Jaco! The food was fresh and delicious and the servers were very knowledgeable and friendly. My boyfriend and I first stopped in on a busy weekend night without reservations, and the friendly staff made accomodations for us. I recommend the buffalo-style lobster bites appetizer!

Husband and I ate here our last two nights in CR - everything was beyond excellent. The peanut butter pie made by Nellie (owner with her chef husband) is to die for as was the tuna, sea bass, salads. Appelts from Brenham, TX

Being a restaurant owner of a Sushi Bar and 5 star restaurant myself, it's very hard to impress me anywhere, let alone in Costa Rica, However last night i was very much impressed. We started with Caesar Salad and eggplant for appetizers, had Shrimp Diablo, Pasta Penni, 4 cheese lasagna for dinner, and finished off with three deserts, and the only reason i give them 5 stars is because you don't have a 6th, the food and service was off the chart, my hat's off tho Chef Richard, his wife, and the whole staff.................if i needed to sum it up in one word it would be WOW

Truly the best place to eat in Costa Rica. We traveled to 4 resorts in 12 days. We ate at many so called 4 and 5 star restaurants. This place is incredible. The buffalo lobster bites, the lobster francaise, the tuna, EVERYTHING was amazing! Family run, dad Richard is the head chef, Richard Jr took care of our every need, and mom is a fantastic hostess. We can not wait to go back to beautiful Costa Rica, and Lemon Zest is one of the top draws for us.
