Welcome to Lemon Zest

Lemon Zest Restaurant was created by Chef Richard and Nellie Lemon in August of 2007. After 23 years of vacationing here in Costa Rica it was time to bring their talents to the Central Pacific Coast and Jaco was the spot they chose.

the Lemon family along with their son “Richie ” started things off in the El Jardin Plaza and we are celebrating 13 years in Jaco !!!!!!

Lemon Zest Restaurant

We are going to remain CLOSED through Mid November 2020.

Lemon Zest Restaurant will re open then along with ALL enhanced Protocols for Safety of our Guests and Staff.

We will use our 2 outdoor seating areas along with Socially Distancing Measures in place for our Dining Room

Looking forward to seeing all of you SOON !!!!

Chef Richard and Nellie Lemon
