Best bang for your buck!

This restaurant is awesome. The menu is diverse and the food is outstanding. Whether it's pizza, a burger, or shrimp tacos, it's all insanely good. So this is a must visit restaurant as I've never been disappointed. I rent my house in Langosta and have put this restaurant on the top of the list... read more

Make sure you have a reservation as popular spot, however could use another server. Very good value for wood fired pizza, had the 3 cheese which was average but not to die for. I have been told the owners will sometimes close for a night without any warning so make sure they will be open. We actually walked here from... More

Typical open-sided Tico restaurant. Mama, papa and their two little ones ran the place. Warm, happy people. Very good food, reasonable prices. The pizza chef is happy to have his picture taken. Would go back.

This is defiantly my favorite pizza place around. I grab pizzas from here at least once a week, maybe more. The menu isn't very large, but you can go rouge and design your pizza for you. The pizza is a very thin crust baked in a wood oven pizza. (also wood oven means it is super quick) the also do... More

We keep returning to La Esquina - it's just SO good! Fed our family of 4 tonight for about $25 and we all left with full tummies. Great atmosphere, great staff and most importantly...great food!! Guacamole and chips are a necessity if you are there! The place is super family friendly (it has a playground and little playhouse) so our... More

We've visited La Esquina a couple times already and I have to say that this is my most favorite restaurant in all of Tamarindo! The wood fired pizza is awesome, prices are excellent ($12-$13) and the staff is very attentive and friendly. They are only open for dinner so if you are Jones’ing for a great wood fire pizza you...

If you find this place open (don't go before 6pm), you must stop!! The pizza is great and you will probably meet the owner too. Very nice and a wonderful Italian menu. TRY IT!!

We'd just arrived in Tamarindo and after a long day - up early, flight from Canada, rental car, driving here, finding our Condo! - we just wanted a quiet dinner consisting of "comfort food!" Since I'm Italian, pizza was the perfect choice! We didn't feel like walking too far and wanted a quiet setting - music, food, relaxing - but... More
