“Nice atmosphere”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

After La trilla remodeled its' restaurant, I had hoped for better prices, but their pricing almost doubled. The food was very reasonable in pricing, and it was very tasty.That is still true, but, with the added prices, it is not one of my favorite eating places any longer.

the staff was friendly and the setting was nice, but the food didn't seem fresh, we would have to rate this average.

“La Trilla evolves!!”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

We are ticos and have a farm house in the vicinity, and mostly everytime we head to Atenas would make our customary stop at La Trilla. Whilst it has changed hands recently, I have not been dissapointed, on contrary, La Trilla has evolved to satisfy the evermost demanding customers, as the clientele in Atenas, both foreign and local, demands quality fare, and so, their menu has changed over the years from a Tapas/Bocas bar with typical cuisine to more international/sea food/grille/typical still menu. The only thing I miss from the old times menu is the Estofado Soup :-(
Today we had a Mexican Soup (Tortilla Soup), Chifrijo, and Patacones with Tostones. The portions at La Trilla have increased, the Chifrijo was really good, and the prices kept in the low range for the type of food, and if compared to similar closer to San José.
The service was a little slow at first, but improved after we got taken our order.
Nothing to complain really, we keep enjoying our favorite place in Atenas!

“Nice place for dinner in Atenas”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

Our hosts suggested La Trilla for dinner. It was raining the evening we had dinner but the setting was very nice. We had a good dinner and enjoyed ourselves very much. The crepes for dessert were very good!

“Disappointing barbeque restaurant”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

The meat was good but not the best we had so far in Costa Rica. I was disappointed after reading the reviews. It's green season, and we were completely alone. The fries were not good at all, and the wine very watery. Although not that high priced like mentioned in a review below.
