A lovely restaurant featuring pizzas from a wood burning oven. La Esquina is attractively decorated. The food is truly delicious and the service is very friendly and efficient. One of your best options in Tamarindo!

We liked it so much, our family went here twice for dinner. Crust is wafer thin, never over cooked and they have lots of choices of styles or build your own. The salads are excellent as well. Enjoy!

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.
