Fodor's Costa Rica 2014
Citrus Restaurant Review
This Moroccan-inspired palace lives up to its name: 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. Choose from tables in the elegant dining room, on the torch-lighted terrace, or in the riverside garden. Service can be slow, so allow lots of time. Lunch specials are great value and are available until 5 pm.
