$5 Soda??

We visited this bar in July, with a group of volunteers teaching English. The service was nice, they kept everyone drinking (alcohol). I don't drink so I ordered a Canada Dry, which turned out being $5. My guess is their math on colones (costa rican currency) and dollars was wrong. That was a... read more

I have been to this bar/restaurant several times. I have always been served by Ramon. He is very pleasant and helpful. The food is good. This is, apparently, kind of a hangout spot with Happy Hour beginning at 8 p.m. There is a dance floor and live music. A point that I particularly enjoy is that it is an open... More

Their Aztec Soup is wonderful, and they have specials every day. Typical Costa Rican fare with a few twists. Inconsistent quality though, you can get fabulous or just so-so. Its the luck of the draw. Prices are on the high side.

I have visited Don Tadeos many times over the last 18 years. Ramon has been there for most of those years. Consistently good service, good food, good location and reasonable prices make it one of the best values in Atenas

Food is a bit overpriced and nothing to write home about, but it's not all bad. The location used to be a Chinese restaurant and is right on the park which is a plus. Now as a sports bar they do okay. Seems busy later at night but pretty dead during the day. Worth a stop to check out but... More

At first glance you see a US style sports bar with big screen TVs and a long bar, kitchen hidden away in the back. I went with my wife and 6 year old son after walking around the town some in the early afternoon. First time I had the sirloin, wife a chicken salad and son a beef pasta dish.... More

We had the freshly made Guacamole and beef fajitas - yummy! Nice view of the square from a window table.

A couple of friends invited me to share a cab to downtown Atenas New Year's Eve for dinner, which they had planned to be at Antano's. But alas! It was closed as was La Caretta's, so the taxi driver suggested Don Tadeo and it was fun sitting by the window overlooking the Central Park. We all three ordered Shrimp &... More

It's sad that a wonderful little town like Atenas has to put up with the drunks, the fights and that element which will keep me from ever going back. It's a shame as their food was pretty good.

We ate lunch here on a Friday. The waiter was nice and spoke English. The service was prompt and the food was good not outstanding but decent. I had a pina colada which was typical. I had shrimp with rice which was good. My husband and friends had fish and garlic shrimp. They said their food was decent too. I... More
