Description: The "tropics" has its own style of enjoying food and refreshments outdoors. Lighter Meals and casual snacks (bocas) while relaxing in the delicious tropical environment seems to be a basic part of the lifestyle here."Hotel La Finisterra's" open air restaurant and viewpoint patios have all the ingredients to make this pastime not only possible but something you will remember. We do with panache! There is no other nearby restaurant with the panoramic, ocean and beach views that compares with the incredible views from "Hotel La Finisterra" the perfect place to take in a tropical sunset in paradise.This year "La Finisterra" presents one new menus and a new direction in our cuisine and restaurant style. Our cuisine is individually prepared using the freshest local ingredients by our professional chef and kitchen staff. Guest services are available in any of our dining area locations.

No better view of the beach area for Playa Hermosa but the food was just average. The staff was friendly but not as attentive we would have liked

Pina Coladas, Ceviche and Mahi Mahi Fish Tacos ARE A MUST

We were staying at the Hotel Boque del Mar and were not impressed with their food, so we tried La Finisterra and loved it. Great sunset view for before-dinner cocktails and yummy dinner (had the pork tenderloin and chicken special).

If you are looking for huge portions of hamburgers and chips, children’s menus , entertainment and over familiar waiters greeting you with Hi Guys – this is not your restaurant.

If you are looking for good well cooked food, correct but very friendly waiters and a great wine selection – THIS IS YOUR RESTAURANT.

We found everything we were looking for at this restaurant. Wonderful views of Playa Hermosa, friendly and knowledgeable waiters and above all really nicely cooked food.

My partner who is the wine lover was taken to the wine cellar to chose a wine and came back with a big smile on his face. We ate twice at this restaurant and both times had a really well chosen wine.

Both times our meal was perfectly flavoured with very nice ratatouille style vegetables and small potatoes in their skins. The desert was also very good.

It was definitely worth the steep climb from our hotel!
