Relaxing atmosphere, friendly service, good (very thin) pizza, and a perfect playground to let kids run around after dinner.

La Baula was perfect for our group, they had plenty of outdoor seating, the drinks were delicious, and there were lots of pizza options for a good price. We think we discovered one of their secrets.

Ran across the place by accident but was impressed with the service and quality. It's easy to see why it is so busy. It was so good, we also did delivery another night!

The pizza crust was cracker thin and tasty! We enjoyed a vegetarian pizza loaded with yummy fresh veggies. Our hotel helped to arrange for delivery and turn-around from order to receipt was speedy! La Baula was highly recommended by several locals we met while in Tamarindo!
