La Baula is a creative, rather good, reasonably priced pizza place with an outdoor playground as part of the restaurant property that kids of all ages will love.

I like the pizzas here, they're thin and crispy and loads of topping (pepperoni). There's a good atmosphere with lots of space and big tables - all the better to enjoy the food with friends or family. The service is good and prices reasonable

The pizza here was so fresh and delicious! I would absolutely go back in a heart beat! The ambiance was also great, very open and nice lighting. The prices were par for the course in Tamarindo. Definitely give this place a try!

I really wanted to give this a higher rating because the open style, seating, atmosphere, and architecture are really great. Unfortunately our service was slow, and the pizza was soggy and average. I may be overly harsh in my assessment, but we ate at some...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.

I know it's probably too late to answer your question, but just in case other people wonder. I will make this as detailed as possible. Say you are coming into town, to make it easier: you pass Hotel Diria, and 100 meters... More
