As a resident of Ojochal, we have the good fortune to be able to dine at some very fine restaurants in the area. Citrus is simply one of the best. Our dinner was spectacular from the new tuna tartare to the mariscos in coconut and curry to the Shrimp Piri Piri (another new dish) - all was spot on. And... More

During our 10 day stay in Ojochal we dined at Citrus several times, and each experience was delightful and delicious. Chef/owner Marcella's menu is sophisticated and inventive - and the kitchen executed the dishes perfectly. There are several fine dining restaurants in Ojochal (this little seaside village is recognized as the culinary destination in CR), and we tried them all.... More

My family and I visited Citrus restaurant just for having an snack or dessert, we found Citrus to be a very well attended restaurant, nice looking table areas and multilingual staff! We recommend this place for eating if your are close by, say Evita or Ojochal!

Beautiful restaurant with great ambiance. The chef made a very fantastic dinner for us, very Mediterranean meal of fish. The service was excellent. Restaurant was a bit pricey, but over all very good.

Along with a few other restaurants in Ojochal that are considered the countries finest, Citrus lands squarely within that ranking. The only reason I gave it a 4 star is intimacy. Due to the amount of seating and the design, it can be quite noisy. Other than that all was excellent.

Citrus Restaurant is on a gravel road (somewhat the norm in the southern CR coastal areas). We were a party of 10 and found the offerings well prepared and very tasty. There was a whole lot of informal plate sharings going on, so I got to sample a lot and was not once disappointed!

The first night we ate here it was amazing. The restaurant is nicely decorated and the service was excellent. I had the ribeye and it was expertly prepared. My love had the fish which he thought was delicious. The chocolate mousse was perfect. Our second night something changed. There was one waitress for the entire restaurant. She was great. Served...

Everything about this restaurant was on point. The food, the atmosphere, and the staff were fabulous. We started off with two appetizers. The smoked salmon and the escargot. They were both delicious and we cleaned them off pretty quickly. Then we moved on to our main courses. My husband had the Asian tuna dish which he loved and I had... More
