“delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2014

Had the cobb salad and pork spare ribs. Both excellent. Also highly recommend the mangopolitian. Make a reservation or else they might turn you away.

“Wish we came here every night”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2014

We came here on our second night of 3 in Monteverde and ended up going back the next\last night. The menu is amazing and we loved everything we tried! The prices were fantastic there's a cheaper portion to the menu with wraps, burgers and salads and then there are entrees that are $12-$16 but the portions are massive. My husbands $15 beef tenderloin would be $30+ in Canada. And if you have room we suggest the mango split for dessert!

“One of the best dinner places in Monteverde”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2014

Right in town. A contemporary black, white and gray interior greets the visitor. Related to Sofia (see my review of that restaurant), and we gave Trio a slight edge. A more varied menu. The selection includes some smaller entrees that are a good option here. Great cocktails and desserts. Everything here was very good, including the service. Don't miss this one.

“A great fusion restaurant with fantastic drinks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

A great dining experience with friends. I booked a reservation here for 9 of us. The restaurant was a bit pricy and was more upscale than most of the restaurants in Santa Elena. I had the Coco Trio (2750 colon) drink to start, and it was fantastic! For my meal I ordered the Coconut Chicken (6000 colon), and it was very good. I would go back to Trio if I am in Santa Elena again.
