This place was very clean and bright. Lots of people but we didn't have to wait. We shared a salad, which was fresh and quite good, and they even had Ranch dressing (very rare in Tamarindo). Then we shared a "Baula" pizza. Mushrooms, olives, a couple kinds of meat, onions, on thin crust with lots of cheese. Very good! To... More

My friend and I went here on our way to another restaurant and we were pleasantly surprised. The thin crust was delicious, ingredients were fresh. Good mojitos. A definite must in Tamarindo.

This thin crust pizza is something that we will remember from our trip. It's amazing. And the atmosphere is so beautiful. There's even a great slide and hammock swings for the kids. Highly recommend.

Off the beaten path but great pizza. There is a lot of variety on the menu and we tried 4 pizzas for a group of 7 including kids. It worked out great and the pizza was very good. I can recommend this without reservation!

A very good restaurant. We tended to eat early, so never had to wait for a table. The menu is limited to (excellent) pizza, so if you want a little more variety try somewhere else e.g. La Pachanga.

Pizza is good, if you are willing to wait 40 Minutes and a crap attitude from the waiters... Go somewhere else Luis Rimolo

After reading the reviews of La Baula, I thought we would give them a try and am very glad we did. They make a pretty good thin crust pizza and it was very reasonably priced! Their pizza is one size only, about the size of a small in the US - just enough for 2 people - plenty of options... More

This restaurant serves one of the best pizzas around Tamarindo. The atmosphere is great the service even better. There is always some type of live music. Great for families.

Pizza is one of my favorite foods. Moving here from the United States I was not sure I would find great pizza. But La Baula has the best pizza. And the gelato for dessert is also so good.
