The Arugula, Prochetta, parmesan pizza is the best we've had in Costa Rica. It is made with love and tradition. The atmosphere is incredible for everyone, dates, families, groups of friends. We recommend this place to everyone looking for good food and good value.

Wanted to try this place out based on some stellar reviews we read before our trip. Even with signs showing where this restaurant was at, we weren't quite sure we were in the right path.

The pizza and beer definitely hit the spot at this restaraunt, just slightly off the beaten path. The pizza was delicious and we were entertained by a fire juggler / spitter. We will definitely return on our next visit to Tamarindo.

This outdoor pizza cafe is fantastic. Our family of six was starving after playing in the ocean all day! We each ordered our own pizza and ate every bite! It was delicious!

I will make it easy and simple, it's the best pizza I've ever had in Costa Rica, and I am Picky and I am a cook. Ate there twice, I have to say the three cheese plus arugula was simply amazing. It's busy and the service might not be the best but the quality and value of the product is... More

Again our shuttle driver knocked it out of the park with this recommendation. We had a great salad to start with phenomenal pizza in the middle and outstanding Gelato to Finish. Highly recommended

La Baula has the best pizza I've had in Tamarindo. It serves a variety of authentic wood-fired thin crust pizzas. Service is fast, and the setting is nice, just slightly off the main road.
