Good food, GREAT drinks

Love the atmosphere of this place, and the food was decent, but pricey. *VERY limited vegetarian (non-pescetarian) options, beware!* Drinks were lovely, though, and the wifi is great!

We stopped at La Trilla on our first day in Atenas on our way to our house rental. The people were wonderful and the food was outstanding. You must try it if you're in the area.

Friendly service and delicious food. Good wine, great steak, fish and chicken dishes, and a Carribean rice dish, to die for. Coconut flavored rice and beans. I like there Filet Mignon especially. The prices are very reasonable.

They treat us well but are a little expensive for my tastes. They do have free appetizer which doesn't happen here often.

Great service and selections of small bocas or bigger plates. Service was super friendly and food was superb. I would come back for the Chifrito anytime. We had a fun evening and the whole family enjoyed the food and ambience.

We stopped by here for dinner on our first day. Delicious healthy food!! I had the chicken (pollo a la plancha). The mashed potatoes were a little buttery, but still good. Good sized portions as well.

We stopped at La Trilla after a very long day, hungry and tired. We were not disappointed. The food was very good, in particular the Camara next jumbo a La Trilla which was especially delicious. The perfect ending to the day.

Nice traditional meal, good service. We were the only ones there so the food came really fast. The open air feel was nice and the tables were big for our group of 6. We all had casado meal either with chicken or beef. The rice and beans had a good flavour and the chicken was spiced nicely too.

If you want to try something different try the Casada with tongue. Tastes like liver, my husband liked it. My meal was just ok.

Super tasty food. We had a shrimp dinner, which was very good, large shrimps cover with cheese and sauce. Steak dinner was very tender and tasty. Prices were good. If you wanted to watch soccer there were plenty of tv's. Great service too.
