Came here after a long day of surfing and excursions. They were slammed so we waited a bit of time to get our food - but servers are nice! Expect a wait. Great pizza and delicious salad!

Always visit for our pizza fix here. Maria always does awsome job looking after her guest. Pizzas are then crust, my favorite. Reasonable pricing. Most safety precautions taken. Servers wear masks at table.

Decent pizza option, but ambiance is great for families with kids. Playground was well lit at night and enclosed for kids to run around and play while we ate. We walked right up with a party of 15 without a wait and it made for...an easy dinnerMore

Worst restaurant experience I had in Costa Rica ever! It took one hours and fifteen minutes from we sat down at hour table until the food arrived ! So bad service ! Just avoid us all the when the food never came. Even we had...table in front of the bar! “5 minutes “ they said and nothing happened ! And the pizza..good crust but the salami was like chewing rubber!More

The playground is an awesome feature for kids while waiting on a table or for the food to come. The menu is nothing but pizza and one type of salad but all delicious. The pizzas are thin and crispy. We really liked the prosciutto arugula...and parm.More

This is a nice restaurant located in Tamarindo, Costa Rica that serves an excellent pizza with a thin crust. I had the La Baula pizza and it was delicious. The pizza is a large size and ideal for getting the carbs before another day of...surfing. The price is fair for the size and quality of the pizzas. I was there 2 nights ago and I plan to return tonight.More

We rolled into Tamarindo late afternoon and found this place via Trip Advisor. Tried to call in our order, but couldn't get anyone to answer, so we drove over. The place was packed and we realized there wasn't enough staff, which was why we couldn't...get any answer. The pizzas were delicious and satisfied our family of 10! Great open venue with a playground for the little ones!More

You cannot call for delivery. However, most restaurants in Tamarindo (including La Baula) are on ticotogo. Just find them on ticotogo, place your order on line, and the pizza will be delivered plus a $5.00 delivery charge.
