Delicious food, fun cocktails, very friendly service. Will definitely be back again.
Not quite what I was after for a wedding anniversary special dinner, although another place & time might be fine
Everything about this restaurant was first class, starting with the Pisco Sour. Food, wine list and service were all brilliant. Ambience and noise levels were also ideal for conversation and a made for a perfect evening.
Overall, the whole experience was lovely! the service was fantastic, all the staff had smiling faces, where very inviting and knew their products.
The food was good, with my favourite dish being the pork Empanadas! the only thing that was extremely disappointing was the 'Seviche classico'. $16 for 4-6 cubes of salmon that was poorly seasoned. Seviche is a staple classic in Chile and unfortunately, Citrico did not do it justice at all.
all this is my personal opinion so please take it with a grain of salt.
Exceptional dinner the other night with a group of 6. We had the set menu and it was delicious and just the right amount. The staff were very attentive but not overwhelming and the place had a lovely ambience about it. Busy but not too noisy. Nan one of the staff was very accommodating to our needs when i booked which really helped and made the night very special. Look forward to going back again.
Quiet Thursday evening dinner to celebrate an anniversary with a loved one. The food was beautiful, the steak cooked to perfection and the civeche's were to die for. Service impeccable.
We were seated on a communal table, which is fine, however there was no background music playing and therefore could hear the entirety of the couple to our right and the couple to our lefts conversations, not the most romantic of tables for an anniversary, however the food made up for this! :)
A good neighbourhood restaurant. Friendly service and tasty food. The steak was very good. Will be back to sample some of the menu items we didn't get to. Hopefully it gets the support of the local community as it is a bit out of the way for non-locals to get to.
This was our second experience dining at Citrico and we were concerned it might not be as good as our first outstanding experience however it didn't disappoint. So not only is the food and service great, it's consistent as well.
Great food and very friendly staff. A small space but well laid out and furnished. The Pisco Sours are the real deal- I know since we lived in Peru.
We’ll be back
My partner and I are regulars at Citrico. We met a another couple there for dinner; we had chosen Citrico based on our recommendation. They love the food, service, location and environment of the restaurant too!
My second visit in under 3 weeks. So good i may well become a regular
Our group had the set menu of 6 courses which was truly delicious & a great way to experience South American cuisine. The service was excellent. I would highly recommend trying this great restaurant.
Excellent food, great service and friendly staff. Very good ambience.
We LOVE Citrico! Great food, great service, fantastic location
A little gem of a restaurant. We did the tasting menu and the staff happily accommodated our requests and variations. It’s refreshing to see great food prepared really well and feel completely comfortable with the staff.
Perfection! Each dish was crafted to satisfy and enrich all my senses. Every dish hit the notes - i'm surprised that this venue hasn't attracted more attention! Suggestions: Pisco Sour, Empanadas, Chorizo, House made bread, roasted sweet potatoe squash (which felt small for the price), and the most amazing Ojo De Bife!!
Will definitely be back!
Good food but service was a bit patchy. Drinks took a while and one of the dishes was missed despite the waitress confirming the order. The dish eventually came at the end of the meal after a gentle reminder and was offered for free which was not necessary but made up or the omission. Overall, would still return again because of the food.
The food was absolutely amazing. The staff were very friendly and had a great knowledge of the food and beverages on the menu. I would highly recommend to all.
A great new local. We will be back.
We had a great lunch. My friend is gluten intolerant & it was so nice to go somewhere that has more than one option for her. The service was great - friendly, helpful & knowledgeable. The food was really good & the pisco sours even better. We will be back
Amazing food, cocktails, service and price! Will definately be coming back.
Amazing food with a delightful array of pisco cocktails to wash it all down. We ate a seriously fantastic grilled rib eye, and some of the best empanada I've ever tasted anywhere - and I've been to South America!
The venue is cosy, and will have you packed in without squeezing too tightly or knocking elbows with your table neighbours. The staff are friendly and happy to discuss the intricacies of the dishes, and the menu even includes a glossary cheat sheet which is a really clever idea.
As Fitzroy North locals, we will definitely be back to sample more of the menu on top of some instant favourites. I'd wholeheartedly recommend it as a destination for anyone who enjoys South American cuisine, fresh flavours and a buzzy neighbourhood vibe.
Absolute superb food and service. Can’t wait to go back!
Nice food but very pretentious and small serves. South American fare is hearty, fun, vibrant, noisy. This was like taking a small sampling of that food and placing in a quiet, tense environment. A 300g sirloin is not $42 worth. And a tiny dipping bowl of chimichurri isn’t the way it’s done. Waiters were nice. But no. This wasn’t the South American experience. Ok it’s not strictly meant to be. It’s obviously a fusion of ideas. But...it doesn’t really work. Three croquettes for something like $12? Croquettes are not a fine dining degustation dish. They are bar food. Tapas. Oh and - if ordering the veggies, prepare for the grit in the unwashed bok Chuoy. If the owners do some tweaking (and wash the grout from the greens) - maybe increase serving size or decrease prices to a reasonable degree - this could be a winner. And no - I’m not into stodge or all you can eat. I appreciate fine dining when it’s just that. But when it’s standard fare dressed up as fine dining? No.
A busy night so service was a bit slow . Food delicious but side serve dishes could be a little more generous .
Ceviche is recommended
Love this place. Beautiful flavors. Food is fresh and delicious. A lovely wine list and personal, cheerful wait staff. One of our favorite places for a mid- week dinner out or a party with friends!
We came to a the restaurant for our daughter’s birthday at her suggestion. We partook of the six course menu. We had a new baby in the family group. The staff were friendly and very helpful in accommodating our baby granddaughter in her pram bassinet . We were given clear explanations of the courses as they arrived at our table throughout the evening. A very enjoyable evening!
Fantastic local find, outstanding food, great service and we will definitely be back - with friends!
Excellent food, good drinks list & great service. A great local option
It certainly impressed me! I was looking for a new restaurant to try, and Citrico came up as a suggested venue. Looked at their menu on OpenTable, and the pics certainly made it an enticing option. The asados were cooked to perfection, with the authentic chimichurri an essential compliment. Their Chilean beer was also dangerously good! Service was on point - friendly without being disruptive. Definitely coming back to this neighbourhood gem!
Amazing food and drinks! Beautiful interior and great location! Staff are very welcoming and lovely, would highly recommend !
It doesn’t get more creative than this! 5 Stars! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Awesome staff who was very helpful explaining the menu. Food was great and will definitely come back.
