Great restaurant for families

I ate at La Baula with a large group of friends. The restaurant had a wonderful vibe and a nice play area for the kids. The adults could sit inside and enjoy the good food, while the kids were free to run around and have fun.

The service was very good and the pizza was even better. The pizza is the thin style and they use the freshest ingredients and the quality is high. Everyone I talked too about La Baula agrees this is the top pizza place in town.

Delicious pizza! The crust is amazing and all the ingredients tasted fresh! Would for sure go back again! We tried 4 different kinds and liked them all.

Delicious pizza, very fast service even when they're packed, they also have a vegetarian pizza that they can make without cheese for vegans so that's great, a little expensive but it's worth the price, I'd rank it as one of the best restaurants in Tamarindo, great vibe all day and they are pet-friendly

We ordered take out from La Baula so I can't comment about the table service, but the pizza was ready and waiting when we picked it up. It was a Saturday night and they had live music. The atmosphere was nice and the restaurant is open air and clean. We originally ordered 4 pizzas for 5 adults and 5 children,... More

Great place for date night! Good woodfired pizza. Also great for to go or take out! Ate here a couple of times while in Tamarindo. The best pizza place in town if you ask me.

We had dinner here with our family while in Tamarindo. Food was wonderful, very thin and crispy crust with fresh ingredients. The staff was very friendly, food came fairly fast, by CR standards really fast! The kids enjoyed the swings and slide area, Howler Monkeys were in trees above howling at us while we waited for pizza!

It is an open air (like most in Tamarindo) eating and the owner is authentic Italian. The pizza was delicious and piping hot.
