The jungle village of Ojochal is dotted with first class restaurants run by ex-pats from Canada and France. Citrus Restaurant featured the best Ceviche and Mussels in a light curry sauce, More than enough for lunch paired with a good wine selection. Also known for there steaks as well. Service and meals were all excellent. Restaurant will be rebuilding after a fire last year and is currently operating at its original location which is the owner's home.

We had a great meal with several gluten free options (fully seasoned) and a nice wine selection. Upscale atmosphere and good service.

We went here on suggestions from the hotel we stayed at. All of the restaurants in this area are world class and we were not disappointed. The waiter was young, but well trained and worked hard immediately to remember our names. The food is a mix of sea food and other options. Very original and wide selection. The patio was packed and really nicely laid out. Food was well done, right proportions and centred around the taste experience. Overall one of the best in the area and if we were there longer would have come back. It is usually fully booked, so reserve to make sure you can enjoy.

We came to Citrus while staying in Uvita on our honeymoon before heading down the South Pacific coast. On our way home, we cancelled the last leg of our trip to allow us to return to Ojochal and eat at Citrus again!
We had the mussels, Tuna steak special, Gazpacho, and plenty of drinks and wine. They also have a trio of mini desserts which was really cute and they even let us customize it by replacing one dessert with sorbet to accommodate a dairy intolerance.
The staff was really nice and the clientele was more than 50% French Canadian in this mini-Quebec town of Ojochal.

I would never recommend this restaurant to anyone.
1. The outside patio smelled of raw sewage & we had to request to be moved. We were told it was caused by the neighboring business.
2. One member in our party ordered a rum & 7. The bill reflected & he was told he ordered a shot of rum with Sprite on the side so we were charged for the rum “shot” & a can of Sprite
3. Our guests ordered gin & sparkling water & what arrived were 2 lime daiquiris
4. We hadn’t finished our single cocktails when the main course arrived
5. We were asked if we wanted plain or sparking water. The bill reflected that we were charged for Christal water unknown to us
Overall a great disappointment when looking forward to taking guests out
