Consistently in the mark.

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

I can't comment on the food, as I just went there to watch Costa Rica play the Netherlands in the World Cup. It was a wild and crazy atmosphere "like LSU football fans, but different"! The beer and service were good. It was a unique experience.

We had a good time with Ramon, our waiter. We were seated at a table near the street where we could watch the activity on the square. We had several drinks, and a good time.

My wife and I visited Don Tadeo for the first time last night to watch the USA/Ghana World Cup game. Of course, we were not the only Gringos in the place... It's a fantastic location - right across the street from the town-center park! So it's a great place for grabbing a few drinks and some food and doing some... More
