Being new to the area we found La Carreta to be a wonderful experience. The vine covered sitting area was clean and the server more then friendly. Our three meals were served promptly and the food was delicious. The bathrooms are clean. Great place for watching the festival activities in the park.

La Carreta is a good typical Costa Rican restaurant right on the park in central Atenas. The vine-covered veranda is lovely for sitting outdoors in the shade with cool breezes, and being able to watch life go by in Atenas. We're a little country town, so it's pretty provincial.
The coffee is fabulous in the afternoon with one of their pastries.
The gallo pinto for breakfast is great!

The service is friendly and their food is very good. Central location makes it easy to visit and take in the local activities in the central park.

For typical Costa Rican food, this is one of my top choice. Good location right off the central park (good people watching location), many excellent choices on the menu and the prices are reasonable.

We eat at La Carreta at least once a week. The food is delicious, the portion hearty, the price is excellent, and they even had adjusted the height of the chairs and tables after we comment that they were uncomfortable. Can only say it is an must go restaurant.
