“I'd Give It Six Stars If Possible”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2013

Rented a gorgeous beach front home within a very short walk to the clubhouse and restaurant. Our group of eight people sat down for the 8 o'clock thanksgiving meal seating. The atmosphere was so festive and all the traditional Thanksgiving courses were prepared and cooked perfectly. I felt that we we dining in an exclusive 4 Seasons Hotel or a Ritz Carlton, yet it was more casual and the atmosphere much more friendly. And the crashing of the waves as a backdrop put it over the top.
This was just one of several great meals that we all experienced at La Finca y el Mar during our week's stay at Rancho Santana. Hats off to Chef Calley and her wonderful staff.

We ate several meals at La Finca y el Mar during our stay and we loved each and every one of them -- the food is amazing and fresh and the service is equally as good!

“Delicious and fresh!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2013

La FInca y el mar is on the Rancho Santana property located, literally, right next to the ocean. The view is amazing and the food is top notch. Most, if not all, of the vegetables are sourced from the garden on the property. The seafood is sourced from the ocean, just steps away. Be sure to try the fish tacos for lunch!

“La Finca y El Mar = Paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

This restaurant is all that you could ask for in the paradise that is Rancho Santana. The food is excellent; the service is impeccable, laid back, and friendly (special thanks to the OUTSTANDING Esmeralda); and the view is, well, perfection. You feel like family after spending time with Brian, the general manager. I only wish I had thought to book this place for my wedding. While I was visiting, I watched the events director, Erik, work his magic organizing a sweet ceremony and reception for a very happy bride and groom. What a stylish affair!

The fish tacos are amazing! Everything we've tried we have enjoyed! And great drink specials too, especially the Carta Postal and the Macau!
