“Fabulous Food, Fantastic Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013

I chose this restaurant for my birthday dinner in September. Upon arrival, La Finca looks just lovely all lit up with hundreds of lights. There are all different areas to sit in the garden while having a few drinks, but we head straight to a table.
We are given a complimentry bread basket with dips & order some Mojitos which are huge & really nice - you even get to choose which type of mint.
Later on we order a 1/2 jug of sangria to share & that's also really good.
For dinner we chose 6 tapas plates & a salad, the stand out being the chorizo & cinnamon croquettes 39,000. Some of the other tapas we tried were the crispy mushrooms with paprika aioli 35,000. Crispy potatoes with cream cheese sauce, paprika confit & crushed chilli 45,000. Beef meatballs with fresh tomato sauce & feta cheese 49,000. The most expensive tapas we ordered was from the specials board - Crispy suckling pig cheeks with red wine balsamic reduction 75,000 & while it was nice, it was probably our least favourite.
For desert the kids have the churros with chocolate dipping sauce & my husband has been chatting to the owner & told him it was my birthday, so they brought out a platter with Happy Birthday written on it & four little pieces of citrus cheesecake. Apparently the recipe is from the chefs grandmother.
The young owner is a lovely fellow who makes an effort going table to table chatting with his guests.
All up for meals & drinks including 2 imported still waters, the bill came to around 950,000rp, such good value for an amazing meal.
After dinner, we sit in the garden while we wait for our taxi to arrive (the staff are happy to order the taxi for you)

“Terrible mozzies but good food and service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013

Within minutes of sitting down all of us were attached my mosquitoes. Even those who don't usually get bitten. We asked for repellent but it was too late. By the time our food arrived we could only get through half as everyone was madly itching their legs and feet. What a shame. Otherwise, this place is great. We couldn't get out of there quick enough but only because of all the bites. Reasonable prices and wide selection of food and drinks.

We are really happy you enjoyed the food and drinks but so sorry you were distracted by the mozzies. During the time you were here was a mozzie heavy time due to the humidity I believe. There were much more than usual. We may have also seated you at a table where there were more of them concentrated... usually the tables close to or in the garden have more. But even so, usually the mozzies are not a big problem at La Finca. We typically also strategically place coils in areas where there may be more of them which deters them effectively. Hopefully the experience has not scared you from coming back. I can assure you it won't be an issue next time. Please do let us know on your next visit and we will make sure that the mozzies won't distract from a nice meal!

Daughters boyfriend had the burger and said one of the best he has eaten.
Tried the margaritas which were very nice.

Thank you so much for your review! The location takes on a whole new personality at night which is enchanting. During the day it has an entirely different feeling to it, which is very nice as well if you haven't checked it out yet. We serve ice-cold San Miguel beer on tap, cocktails, and the burger during the day too ;) I am looking forward to seeing you back at La Finca! :) Thanks again

“A lovely change.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

Loved this restaurant, it was a great change to enjoy spanish food, it was all very fresh and beautifully presented, delicious and the hospitality was excellent. Nice decor in a good location a little way out of Seminyak on the Canggu road. We will eat here again.

“Good atmosphere, unique place, the food is average (standard)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

i went there around last 3 weeks, first impression was very curious, because all the tables has been reserved, so only 1 table left. Then we started to ordered some menus and while we were waiting to our food, we didn't feel bored because the restaurant's atmosphere was amazing. The setting of the restaurant was quite cheerful, romantic, how could i say more. The design is superb.

Then our foods came, and we expected that would be very delicious as the restaurants ambiance amazed me, however the taste is average. But we do still love the foods and for sure the dessert, i love it much :)

Thank you for your review and the beautiful pictures. We are happy that you enjoyed your experience at La Finca, especially the ambiance and decor! :) It is too bad not all the dishes were to your liking. On your next visit I would be very happy to provide some recommendations which hopefully would impress you as much as the ambiance and decor did :) Hope to see you back at La Finca soon!
