The owner and chef's mother recommended for us to have Christmas dinner at La Laguna Beach Club. I am so glad that we listened to her, as the Christmas day dinner was fantastic. Two days later I met the owner's wife and I told her what a wonderful experience we had. That same night we were supposed to eat at... More

Best dinner in Tamarindo! If you love lobster then this is most definitely the place to go. Grilled lobster platter including vegetables and roasted potatoes were the best we've had here. Just a little bit on the outstretch of downtown is so worth the walk/short 3 minute cab ride. Chef/owner Omar knows his way around the kitchen with his tasty... More

I tired several places to eat the food here was very fresh. Price was right. I spend my birthday on the beach just a walk away to sit out and enjoy the atmosphere. Yes I would re-visit again..

The restaurant was outside in the sand on the beach. Aatmosphere good. Food not bad. Owners and servers pleasant. What I liked most was the crabs crawling around under foot up from the beach...... Awesome experience.

My husband and I were recently married at La Laguna. We had been to Tamarindo and visited several other venues scoping out a site for our wedding. We did not get the chance to see La Laguna our first time there. We booked the restaurant and venue site unseen, hoping for the best. It totally worked out. Alicia, the owner... More

Outdoor atmosphere was pretty. Food was mediocre and overpriced. People were nice, but the service was slow and inconsistent. Seems kind of like it was run by a group of teenagers. We had a large group, and literally had to wait for another large table to finish so they could wash their plates (hopefully) and serve our dinners. They also... More

Thanks for your review. First we want to clarify with you and our readers that we have enough glassware and plates to serve 100 people in our restaurant. You waited because first: you were late on your reservation which we nicely kept for 40 minutos, and second: your party number was more than for what the reservation was made for,... More
