Went here after watching the sunset on the beach. Not the best pizza we’ve had but was recommended by friends. Probably won’t go back. The waitress was great. Friendly, outgoing and fun. The pizza was a little overdone. Wasn’t real busy, so we’re not sure...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.
