We have been to Playa del Coco 6 times and everytime we always go for dinner at Citron (and sometimes more then once during the stay). Always have had a great meal, never been disappointed. Staff is amazing, very good service. You can either sit outside on the patio or sit inside with air conditioning. Very nice atmosphere. Must try... More

My three friends and I are from Southern CA, and we decided to go to Costa Rica for our vacation. The trip was absolutely great, but my friends and I have a difference of opinion of "good food" for that evening. So, I was off to find something really good and happened to walk by this beautiful restaurant a few... More

Place was absolutely empty and we had foolishly booked a reservation. Obviously not the in-place. High prices, poor wine selection, ok food. We had the Ahi tuna, Venezuelan tacos, pork tenderloin and Thai shrimp. We would not return.

Citron is one of my favorates. First off, it is air conditioned, one of only three in town. It is also one of the best appointed restaruants in the area for a casual dining experience. The menu is a bit limited but each item is properly prepaired and sufficient in quanity. The potobello resorto and the Bankock shrimp are two... More

Had a nice breakfast. Staff was super nice. Enjoyed the meal and time. Definitely worth a stop in for that more than local breakfast, a bit more homey comfort.

Citron is a wonderful breath of fresh air. The property is small, quaint, quiet, very clean and comfortable. Our waiter, Juan Carlos was superb. Very knowledgeable and extremely friendly and accommodating. The evening fare was timed and prepared accordingly, and to perfection. Not much of any detail was overlooked. With a nice Chilean Pinot Noir, we set out on a... More

This lovely, "big city" feel restaurant will not disappoint! It's sleek interior design gives way to a well appointed menu featuring wonderfully prepared dishes, a full bar and wine list. A great spot for couples to enjoy!

This place rocked it for our family of 4 (2 adults & 2 kids). The food was amazing - especially the shrimp risotto dish & the fresh fish orzo dish. The one cocktail ordered was so-so. I would go back here in a heartbeat. The staff was helpful & professional and the restaurant was cool in temperature & spotless. Slightly... More

Nice ambiance, awesome drinks, and spectacular food They were also very accommodating with substitutions. I had the grilled chicken, leek risotto, and veggies. My husband had the pork tenderloin and veggies. We... More
