Great pizza, nice atmosphere

The pizza was wonderful, had some live music playing quietly and the dining area is open to the outside so you can enjoy the weather and the breezes. Service was good, food was reasonably priced. A little hard to find, we took a couple of wrong turns, but worth the trouble.

We had 5 pizzas. One was great, but the others were not good at all. May have just been the type of cheese. Nice setting, good service Food was far from great.

The food is great! Customizable pizzas and great drinks. Nice atmosphere. They had a live guitar player there and we had the big table in the center of the dining room, came with about 12 people half were our local friends and everyone left happy. Order a shot of guaro and have fun!

Pizzeria La Baula is a wonderful choice for an easy family dinner. The pizza is delicious, the service is good and the atmosphere is terrific. The restaurant is open to the outdoors with an adjacent playground for young kids to burn off some extra energy while waiting for dinner. If you are in Tamarindo, don't miss this lovely spot!

The pizza was great, perfect size for 2 of us. Outdoor seating allowed us to capture the night breeze. Can be hard to find if you don't know your way around Tamarindo.

Some locals recommended this place to us. The pizza was very good and it's an out of the way place on a little side street. Great outside dining . We enjoyed our dinner !

When you are in Tamarindo there are dozens of pizza places but NONE are equal to La Baula. The staff and the atmosphere are fantastic and they even built a play area for children. The food is divine!!!

When we asked around, Baula's was recommended for pizza in Tamarindo. For good reason. Thin crust, Tons of toppings. Excellent, speedy service but a beautiful atmosphere. Cute playground for kids and tons of space for families. The price was nice too. Definitely go!

Stopped on a Sunday night it was busy with locals which is always a good sign. Great family restaurant but quiet and just off the beaten path. Nice family style fresh salads and hand crafted pizzas. Lots of topping and choices. If you like you pizza a must stop.
