We live in Playa Langosta. We order here all the time. The food is great and it's ready when promised. The pizza is thin crust - not doughy. Plenty of indoor and outdoor dining. New ownership has made a big difference here.
We dropped there having a reservation (my wife, our two little daughters, and me). The restaurant was almost empty at our arrival, so we asked the waiter to be seated near an open window (an obvious choice during this pandemic)... what a mess; he started...patronizing my wife and me, just arguing and avoiding attention to our simple request instead of offering us a basic solution.
The cherry over the cake was the owner (dressed as the big bully chef of the place), who came asking what was happening and rudely offered us to leave if that made us happy. So we did!!! And will never come back!!!
Save your hard-earned money for much better options in the area that do care for their customers.More
There’s a crazy woman giving bad reviews and she’s a hustler. We were sitting right next to her for her bad “pasta experience “ and she was just trying to scam a free dinner. She complained without merit until some guy offered to pay her...bill to shut her up. This place has amazing food and service!More
Wow!! So disappointed after reading so many good reviews. I arrived at 7. It wasn’t super busy. There were three tables inside that were open, but after flagging down the bartender, he wanted to sit me in a dark corner outside. He said the waiter...would be there soon. I waited five minutes and then moved myself to a larger table in the light. Finally, the waiter noticed me and asked if I needed to order. I said yes. I asked for a pasta and asked if he would add vegetables. He said no, the pasta comes as is. I asked if if was pre-made. He said no. So, you have vegetables for pizza, right? He said yes and then said he would check with the chef if he could add them. After my food was delivered, he asked if I wanted fresh parm. I said yes, he never brought it to me and never checks to see if my food was good or if I needed another glass of wine. If the restaurant was busy, I would have understood, but half the tables were empty. By the way, I live in CR. It’s not like I expect US timeliness in a restaurant. This was just bad service.More
We have been to Costa Rica multiple times and always stay in Langosta just up the road from El Sapo. We always kept missing it and it was closed when we would attempt to dine. This year we made it a point to go during...their business hours and try the food. We were not disppointed! Peppe (like many have mentioned) is just an all around awesome person and will make sure you enjoy yourself. Oh yeah, food, the pizza is delicious and amazing! I know most reviews are about the pizza specifically but after we told some local friends that we finally got to eat there, they recommendedthat we try the burgers!! Soooooo we went back there again. May sound different, burgers at a pizza place? But don't knock it til you try it. I'm pretty sure it was the best burger I had in Tamarindo!!More
Seriously the best pizza bar none, the crust is to die for. There are so many to choose from. We actually went here twice for dinner during our vacation. Drinks excellent, great service and great ambiance whether you eat inside or out. I wish I...had one of their pizzas right now oh and almost forgot try the chili gusto ceviche - excellent!!!!More
Great service, great pizza, made in a wood fire oven. I would definitely recommend a stop here if you are in Tamarindo/Lagusta. We ordered a salad and it was huge enough to split between two people. Pizzas are a good size, enough for two people...to share.More
We were too dogged tired after a day of surfing to walk back to Tamarindo for dinner, so we opted to give this place a try. None of us were really in the mood for pizza, but El Sapo definitely hit the spot anyway! Prices...are a bit on the high side for pizza, but the food was all high quality. Lots of interesting options in addition to the basics.More
