We've only had lunch at La Troja. Rather noisy, especially when a tour bus pulls in, which seems to be frequent. Of our 3 times there, the service was kind of slow once, very slow once. But we're seldom in any hurry when we're in Costa Rica, so no big problem there. Food was not by any means exceptional, but quite good. We can recommend it.

The food offered at La Troja is exceptionally tasty. The chicken is a must-have. Salad selection is terrific and a la carte ordering is exceptional. Some wait staff have outstanding linguistic skills and English is easily understood. Wonderful service, delicious menu selections, and great beverage offerings,including ice for those who require it. The patio dining area is especially nice for an evening out.

Easy to find restaurant in Tilaran. At this time of the year there are lots of tour buses stopping for lunch buffet. We ordered from the menu and food was just average. Reasonable prices, good-sized portions, good service. There was also a band playing music so conversation was a bit difficult.

We went here for dinner and were not disappointed. Great "Typical" food and excellent prices. Service was very friendly too. Portions are large and you can take your left overs with you. There's a souvenir shop in the back.

La Troja Restaurant is one of our most favorite places to eat in Costa Rica. It is right on the main road into Tilaran. It has open-air seating as well as interior. They have high speed internet that is available for their customers to use. The service is fantastic and the food is excellent. The cuisine is typical Costa Rican fare and it will not disappoint! We spend about a week once a year in this area and we dine here often. Sometimes in the morning for breakfast, sometimes for just a cup of coffee to check our emails, lunch, dinner, or sometimes in the evening for a cold beer. Their ceviche is very good. All fo the "casados" are excellent and very large portions. Their "pescado entero" (whole fish) is very, very good. It is a whole tilapia that is flash fried so it is crispy on the outside, yet moist on the inside. It is served with rice, and a salad and is about $10.00. Very good value for the price. Be sure to stop in. Be aware, a number of tourist busses stop here, but even when then, the service and food remains excellent.
