Seriously the best pizza bar none, the crust is to die for. There are so many to choose from. We actually went here twice for dinner during our vacation. Drinks excellent, great service and great ambiance whether you eat inside or out. I wish I...had one of their pizzas right now oh and almost forgot try the chili gusto ceviche - excellent!!!!More

everything is good here, the best pizza in Tamarindo and Langosta, but the fried pizza "The Original" is the best... wow!

Great service, great pizza, made in a wood fire oven. I would definitely recommend a stop here if you are in Tamarindo/Lagusta. We ordered a salad and it was huge enough to split between two people. Pizzas are a good size, enough for two people...to share.More

We were too dogged tired after a day of surfing to walk back to Tamarindo for dinner, so we opted to give this place a try. None of us were really in the mood for pizza, but El Sapo definitely hit the spot anyway! Prices...are a bit on the high side for pizza, but the food was all high quality. Lots of interesting options in addition to the basics.More

The pizza is fantastic and the staff are even better. With all the pizza in Tamarindo, many would agree this is one of the best!

Thoroughly enjoyed the Gluten free pepperoni pizza..best gluten free crust I have ever had! My husband enjoyed the regular pepperoni pizza as well and also liked the fact that there were two choices of size (his choice 4 slices) . It was reasonably priced and...the waiter, Pepe, was very accommodating with any requests and the restaurant is comfortable and clean (although air conditioner was not working, there were fans). Highly recommend a night out in Langosta...quiet and relaxed...quick taxi ride or drive from downtown Tamarindo.More

Pizza is good, also had the shrimp appy and it was to die for. Shrimps came on a bed of caramelized pineapple. The shrimps were huge, we had it along with some foccoci bread. Restaurant was very busy and staff friendly and accommodating. Would definitely...go backMore

We've been to Playa Langosta many times and finally got a chance to try El Sapo. We started with the Burrata Salad. The flavor and size of the burrata was amazing. We were with friends and then ordered some pizzas to split. The Master Chef,...The Star and The Half Moon. Everything was awesome. Thin crust, fresh ingredients and definately reasonable. Service was also a plus, friendly, fast and professional. We will definitely be back.More

A great find in Langosta beach area of Tamarindo. The pizza was delicious and the bonus was the dedicated gluten free pizza oven for our celiac daughter.
