CITRUS, Ojochal Costa Rica
New World Cuisine created by master chef Marcella Marciano
What a stunning restaurant on every level. The food is impeccable & inventive. The decor is (again this bears repeating) stunning especially at night, it make us feel like it’s always christmas! What an eye this family has and what an incredible gem they have created. I’ve been in Costa Rica many times and have been in thousands of restaurants in a multitude of countries… this restaurant ranks on par with the very best of them. Last time we’ve been there with another couple and they loved the food as well. I had the octopus & my girlfriend had the steak with a hint of chocolate in the reduction sauce. Everything was absolutely exquisite!!!
As you enter Citrus Restaurant, you know you are someplace special. Immediately you encounter the lounge and are invited to sit for a cocktail. After nibbling on some tasty bocas, you venture to your table for dinner. Nestled beside a rushing river, you enjoy the sounds as your peruse the menu. Marcella’s talents lie in culinary creationism. Drawing from her worldly roots she is driven to create.
And the Moroccan-inspired palace lives up to its name with the food: it’s tangy, tart, and refreshing. The intriguing menu offers sophisticated world cuisine, ranging from a Moroccan-style hamburger served with spicy harissa mayonnaise to sea bass in a white-wine and saffron sauce to grilled tuna with a sauce that combines tamarindo and peppery Thai siracha. There’s a soupçon of French flavor, too, with garlicky escargots and steak frites (steak with french fries). Desserts are among the best in the country; if you like chocolate, don’t pass up the divine Choco-Choco flourless chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream.
Come experience the tasty cocktails, cool vibe and culinary excellence of the legendary Citrus.
