This lovely restaurant is tucked back in the trees off the Tamarindo estuary. Although it does not have an ocean view, it does have a wonderful garden view. It is owned by a French couple and the food was excellent. We considered this a locals "find."

The owner and chef's mother recommended for us to have Christmas dinner at La Laguna Beach Club. I am so glad that we listened to her, as the Christmas day dinner was fantastic. Two days later I met the owner's wife and I told her what a wonderful experience we had. That same night we were supposed to eat at... More

Best dinner in Tamarindo! If you love lobster then this is most definitely the place to go. Grilled lobster platter including vegetables and roasted potatoes were the best we've had here. Just a little bit on the outstretch of downtown is so worth the walk/short 3 minute cab ride. Chef/owner Omar knows his way around the kitchen with his tasty... More

I tired several places to eat the food here was very fresh. Price was right. I spend my birthday on the beach just a walk away to sit out and enjoy the atmosphere. Yes I would re-visit again..

The restaurant was outside in the sand on the beach. Aatmosphere good. Food not bad. Owners and servers pleasant. What I liked most was the crabs crawling around under foot up from the beach...... Awesome experience.

My husband and I were recently married at La Laguna. We had been to Tamarindo and visited several other venues scoping out a site for our wedding. We did not get the chance to see La Laguna our first time there. We booked the restaurant and venue site unseen, hoping for the best. It totally worked out. Alicia, the owner... More
