Pressbox (Press Release) - Ojochal opens another Hit of a Restaurant

Ojochal's newest restaurant, Citrus, opens to great reviews.
Known for its unparalleled beauty, Ojochal is the home to some of the finest restaurants in Costa Rica. Citrus is one of them.

January 17, 2008 - Ojochal has long been known as sitting in the middle of what is perhaps the most beautiful real estate in Costa Rica, the Southern zone, where scarlet Mac Caws, Tucans and White faced monkeys are seen in the lush, rain forest covered mountains stretching to the sea. However, Ojochal is also known to have some of the country's most exquisite cuisine.

“Where is Ojochal and why would it be known for its cuisine?”, you might ask. First of all Ojochal is about 25 miles south of Dominical and Uvita and about 25 miles north of Palmar Sur and Sierripe where the new international airport is slated to arrive in 2010.

The reason why the cuisine is so rich? In one word its “expats”. Yes that's right ex patriots, regular people from other countries who also saw the beauty of this wondrous area have moved here from around the globe and with them, they have brought a dinning selection is both rich and diverse. This beautiful area now boasts French Eclectic, Bavarian, Swiss and, even gourmet pizza in addition to amazing local Costa Rican fish and seafood restaurants, and now, a new jewel has just opened that should not only continue this tradition of excellent dining but promises to raise the bar.

Citrus has arrived on the scene. A wonderful restaurant with wonderful ambiance and food that, you guessed it; is wonderful. In fact it's beyond wonderful, it's truly amazing and it will certainly add significantly to the first rate selection in the area.

The cuisine is “Mediterranean Fusion” and it is owned by Sylvain and Marcella Fillion, who are originally from Paris and have lived in the Osa region for 11 years. They were originally co founders of another area favorite, Exotica, serving wonderful French eclectic food. Citrus seats about 100 people comfortably in a upscale indoor / outdoor atmosphere surrounded by the beauty of the area.

Marcel Van Wiligen who is a resident of Ochocal, a Citrus dinner and an expat himself and also happens to work for the largest builder and developer in the area, Ventana Del Pacifico, www.CostaRicasBestProperty.Com , had the following to say about Citrus. “The food is wonderful here and so is the atmosphere. We're so fortunate to have the best, most beautiful real estate in Costa Rica as well as truly amazing food. It's a little paradise here”.

Marcel is certainly not the only one that feels that way. The service was excellent. The atmosphere is artistic, edgy, modern and just plain cool. The appetizers, and entrees such jumbo shrimp in the Citrus secret sauce are to die for and their deserts and even their cappuccino are outstanding. Did we mention they have a full service, premium bar as well? This place has it all; it's a hit and it looks like it will be that way for a long time to come.

For whatever reason you're in the area, be it buying investment property from Ventanna del Pacifico, surfing in Dominical, renting in Uvita or just on your way to Drake Bay, Gulfito or the Osa peninsula, Citrus is a must to add to your trip. Yes, its that good.

Citrus is a Mediterranean Fusion Restaurant owned by Sylvain and Marcella Fillion
