They're gone. Now a grocery store. This was a pretty nice place when they were in business. Decent bar food. Attentive service. Plenty of sports bar screens. Too bad they're gone.

Let me start off by saying that the gentleman greeted us at the restaurant was wonderful. He made us feel very very welcome even though we didn't speak Spanish and he didn't speak English we got along quite well. On the other hand The food was OK, it wasn't great and it wasn't bad. Overall it's not a bad place... More

A great place to stop in for a quick meal. Don Ramon will greet you every time with a friendly smile. The food is good with ample portions. The beer is ice cold and it's a great place to sit and watch the park across the street. Even though it's a sports bar, it's quiet enough to talk ... at... 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

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 little maddening considering my drink had a... 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
