“Great local Restaurant with local food.. great flavor.. excellent service..”
Reviewed 23 September 2013

This restaurant is a favorite of mine and my girlfriend who lives in Canas which is a nearby town.. many local people also call this place their favorite. Completely open air with a nice view of the mountains, the food has good flavor and hearty portions.. and the service is first class.. extremely clean, and I found the prices to be a good value. I have traveled all over Costa Rica and will always make and effort to hit this place any time I am in the area. Try a Casado, which is the typical Costa Rican dish (literlally translates to "marriage)..

“Maybe the best restaurant in Tilaran”
Reviewed 26 June 2013

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.

“Deliciously prepared meals”
Reviewed 23 March 2013

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.

“Convenient Location in Tilaran”
Reviewed 6 March 2013

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.

“Great all the way around”
Reviewed 10 July 2012

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.
