Delicious!

Very thin crust pizza served very quickly! Beautiful restaurant with nice atmosphere and great play area for kids. Off the main drag but worth a visit. Reasonably priced compared to other places in Tamarindo.

We just ordered 3 pizzas from La Baula through TicoToGo because the kids did not want to go out for dinner. One of the pizza's (the prosciutto, parmesan, basil) was mashed up completely (literally). We had broken slices of pizza and slices of pizza folded over onto other slices. Cheese was stuck together from multiple slices as were the other... More

We got take out. They also deliver but because it takes them 10 minutes to cook, we just picked it up. The delivery goes through some other phone number and service. It was all delicious. The pizzas are too big for 1 person, but not enough for two. So probably 2 pizzas for 3 people is enough. The mixed salad... More

Our family of 4 loved the pizzas, thin crust and fresh ingredients. I had the prosciutto and parmesan, I added basil and this was the best pizza I've ever had.

For a superthin pizza, go to La Baula. Can't go wrong in this place. I had a pizza mozzarella and a beer and it was tasty, there is a playground for the kids and it is a nice place to sit. For an evening not eating too expensive, this is a great place!

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, 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
