We are in Atenas for two months and this the second local restaurant we have visited. Very pretty open air setting,excellent friendly service (they were very patient with our Spanish!)and delicious hot food. We decided to order a variety of bocas (appetizers) from their long list. Garlic shrimp,beef quesadilla, ribs,taco,chicken fajita. Would order them all again! To the reviewers who complained about the beef - it is not aged in Costa Rica so is not often to our Gringo tastes - but lots of other wonderful choices. We will definitely go back to La Trilla!

I went with a friend who lives near this place - the food was good and priced OK. They have a pretty extensive menu and, according to my friend, all of it is good! Our waiter spoke limited English but we were able to communicate well. Not much atmosphere but OK.

We had a friend in town and were looking for a place to eat with good typical Costa Rican food and we wound up here after having major price shock at La Trocha. The shrimp in Garlic was good as was the bistec milanesa that a friend had. My other friend that had the casados con pescado (fish) said it was comparable to some of the higher rated restaurants in Atenas that he's been to. WARNING: make sure you pay in colones if you can or they will tack on an extra 13% to pay with a credit card. This unfortunate situation led to me telling them in spanish that they should have told me this BEFORE they ran the credit card since they didn't want to void the transaction and let me pay with cash once they had run it.

The service was pretty average but we liked the atmosphere and the proximity to town.

This restaurant has changed hands several times over the last few years. Significant improvements have been made and we enjoy it very much. Gringos should be aware that steak is typically not aged in Costa Rica, so they are frequently disappointed with the toughness. This place is nice and is worth a try!

This was just what we hoped for. Typical casados. Great rice, beans, plantains, salad and fish. The service was perfect and the location was pretty.
