“Good Food At A Reasonable Price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

Located in the heart of Atenas, La Trilla Restaurant provides typical Costa Rican cuisine at very reasonable prices. I was particularly pleased at the quality of service by the staff.

“Nothing to write home about.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

The positives: Cold beer, unique tables, interesting menu - focus on seafood

Negatives: Out of seafood, meat was tough as shoe leather, wilted salad and expensive for what you got.

“Popular Ex Pat Destination”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

La Trilla is a bit pricier than other retaurants in Atenas, but we ate there twice because the quality of the food was good and the service and ambience were great. The soups (mushroom and also black bean) were thick and delicious. We noticed the other patrons were exclusively tourists and ex-pats, and the menu and staff are bilingual, making it an easy place to dine after a day trying to sort out Spanish.

“New owners - new Menu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

We where surprised to see alot of renovations going on, but only to discover - new owners, new menu, new servers, I did really like the food there before, and I am not a sea food person , whinch they do serve now.The servers are very uptown and more professional,the new additions are very nice,we like the open air of the place, it is cleaner and more upscale than before and it is alway busy when you drive past, good luck to the owners and his very helpful staff.
