Think Finns Beach Club and images of sparkling water, sun beds and beautiful people beach side come to mind, but on further inspection of guests’ posts to their instagram page, it becomes clear that not only is this place a destination to die for, people are also flocking here for the food!
Already open a few months now, Finns has certainly begun to enjoy a considerable following from surf side lunch lovers seeking to ‘chew with a view’. What’s not to love about relaxing under a stunning bamboo pavilion with uninterrupted ocean vistas and a bird’s eye view of the action from the pool, not to mention full table service and menu options that sound so delicious it’s simply too hard to choose!
They recently introduced breakfast daily from 7am, perfect for those seeking some sustenance after an early morning surf or stroll on the sand and their lunch time menu has food lovers continually returning for favourites such as the gourmet pizzas, nachos and healthy green bowl choices to mention a few.
To add even more dilemma to deciding on what to order, Finns commences their exciting new dinner menu from September 5th, with reservations available from 6pm. A sneak peek of the menu has me planning my culinary attack already and marking off my favourites from Appetizers to Dessert!
Long cherished tropical favourite, The Prawn Cocktail, carries a spicy twist with the gochujang infused mayo adding a dose of Asian fusion to an oldie but a goodie. Being a bit of a grazer, the Finn’s Antipasto Platter for two flagged my attention with its mouthwatering array of Mediterranean fare including cheeses, marinated artichokes, asparagus, olives, bruschetta, sun dried tom…….sorry, still back at the cheese!! It’s the ideal accompaniment as you make your way through the list of Happy Hour cocktails available every evening from 8-10pm!
Gourmet pizzas still appear on the dinner menu along with a selection of decadent pastas like Chicken & Prawn Tagliatelle and Feta Cheese Cannelloni – fat parcels stuffed with spinach, leek, olives SDT’s topped with Finn’s home grown tomato sauce and Scarmoza cheese!
Mains are a hearty affair with meat being the star of the show. Choose from chicken, ribs, shanks and Red Snapper or test that man sized appetite and go it alone with a 400gm slow cooked, rib on the bone! Couples don’t despair, as this one can also be ordered to share. Which might just be a good idea as you will want to make certain you leave room for these desserts!
If Passionfruit and Vanilla Pannacotta or Valhrona Choccy Cake with Pistachio Ice Cream don’t start your tastebuds trembling then wait ’til you try the Banoffee Tartlett with banana caramel mousse and Snickers Ice Cream…….See what I mean? Resistance is futile!
The new dinner menu is available in the restaurant area under the main pavilion (look for the incredible bamboo light sculpture) from 6pm until 10pm daily, but should you wish to dine around the pool and bar areas, you will still be able to order all of your faves from the regular lunch/all day dining menu.
Finns Beach Club is undeniably fabulous for swims, surf, sand, seeking friends and sunsets, but why not make the day complete with a meal from their new menu and entertainment courtesy of their evening DJs and die hard surfers looking for the day’s last wave under lights. There’s some Bali Bliss for you……!
