Chef Juan Carlos, is a passionate, dedicated chef from Venezuela. He created delicious meals for the remainder of my stay. I ate breakfast and lunch here everyday. Each meal was unique yet different from the previous ones. There is a menu, but let Chef Funky create a special meal for you.

Our weekly night out for dinner had us looking for pizza, but from someplace where we had not been before. La Esquina popped up in our search so we decided to give it a try, and what a great treat it was, The dining area was open and airy, yet the surrounding garden filtered out the street sounds.

I have been here a few times. The food and the service is always excellent. This last time I was there with two friends. We shared a pizza, a pasta dish and the bruschetta. We loved the pizza ans pasta, however we found the bruschetta to be a little bland. The service was fantastic and I will go back again.

We live here in Tamarindo and LOVE the pizza at La Esquina! It is great to eat at the restaurant---our kids can play on the playground or in the playhouse (which they LOVE), but it is still good pizza to have delivered. The kids always get the pepperoni--best pepperoni in town--and we get the Daniel pizza--so yummy! The owners are... More

Pizza was awesome and the pasta was really good as well. We went back a couple of times. Also the "everything burger" I think it was called the La Esquina Burger is the best burger I've had in CR. YOu can't go wrong with whatever you order here! Reasonable prices as well.

I have lived here for 16 months, and what I missed most about the US was good pizza with great cheese and good toppings. We live just outside Tamarindo, and until now, we have driven all the way to Flamingo to Las Tublas for great pizza and salads. Going 10 miles for pizza in the states is nothing, but here... More

3rd time really was the charm for us finding good pizza in Tamarindo. After striking out twice we had really lowered our level of expectation for finding a good pizza place in Costa Rica. La Esquina was a pleasant surprise. It is a very nice setting. The owner was our server and she was very attentive. We highly recommend this... More

Had two pastas (vongole and fettuccini), both delicious! Great service - attentive and friendly. One of our favourite dinner spots in Tamarindo!

Great pizza!!! We are here for two months, and are now joking we have a "two pie per week minimum" habit at La Esquina. Such gracious owners, and we often bump into the pizza cook around town who greets us with a smile and a wave. The salads are always top shelf, and we've worked our way through several of... More

We walked by this place so many time thinking we would try the pizza, but we never found them open...until tonight! We had a custom pizza and it was yummy! We like thin crust, so if you don't...better try their Italian dishes. They all sounded good! Some of our local friends came in while we were there...picking up an order... More
