Reviewed September 9, 2012

I have lived here in Costa Rica for 3 years, and have seen several restaurants come and go. The main problem is generally the food quality is poor and/or the prices are too high. Well, Tubla has broken that mold, and is GREAT food at a REASONABLE price. I have eaten here multiple times and each time it is consistently good and the service friendly and helpful. I speak spanish, however each time, our waiters knew both Spanish and English. As I'm writing this review, I'm eating the leftovers from last night and they are delicious even the next day!!!

Delicious pizza and extremely friendly and accommodating plus extremely reasonably priced.

Have a large variety of pizzas and will make whatever combination you prefer with no problem.

We went for takeout once and were given free appetizers while waiting for our pizza. There
pastas are very tasty also.

This place is amazing! Really extraordinary thin crust pizza--crispy thin and sizzling hot. We've been in Costa Rica for a week now and were just in the mood for something different tonight. We decided to try Tubla, and we are so glad we did. The staff was friendly and prompt with their service and the food is moderately priced. In addition to providing wonderful salads and pizza for our party of 8, they gave us two desserts on the house (little cake squares with chocolate and some delicious flan) as well as shots of Limoncello to top off the evening.

Tubla is located in a little strip shopping center on 180 next to BCR (Bank of Costa Rica), on your right as you are driving from Brasiltos to Playa Flamingo. If you get to the Playa Flamingo Beach Resort, you've gone too far.

We know the owner from the previous place. Tubla is his new venture, and I think a very successful one.
Service is excellent. Food is very good.
Try to order their Italian staff (pizza, pasta), or meat.
Fish was a bit disappointed.
Overall good experience.

Minutes by car from Playa Flamingo, very reasonable prices. Best Spagetti Carbonara I've ever had. Gnocchi Gorgonzola, Tenderloin Gorgonzola and NY Strip Steak were fantastic as well. Left overs covered next days lunch. Don't miss the Focia Bread appetizer.
