Every year when going to Rovaniemi the first dinner takes place in this Mexican Restaurant. The menue ranges from Burrito to Fachitas to Burgers and so on. Fair prices. Large plates. Spicy and delicious. Friendly and discret service. Ice cold beer ;-). Always again!!

We visited here on a Friday night in January. It wasn't full but fairly busy and buzzy. Nice friendly and efficient service. Food was just OK.

The atmosphere here is upbeat and staff service here is great. There are lots of choices from the menu and be warned that the portion is huge! I ordered the tortillas which could have easily fed 2 people. There is complementary nachos and staff would be happy to refill the salsa if you like. Good for big groups and value... More

We visited Amarillo 2 times, for dinner and lunch. We had premium burger, flank steak, junior buritto, salmon, kids burger, salads, jalapeno poppers. Unanimously, the burgers were the best. Amarillo ale, their special brew, was light and pleasant. Average check fore 2 adults and one child, including soft drinks and alcohol (2-3 beers) - around 80-90 Euro. Sure, the service... More

We went here with our two young children. We asked for a booth, the waiter happily obliged. Service was a little slow in taking our order but service was friendly. The food was delicious. We would return !

Food was good, typical Mexican. Nacho's were served cold with salsa. Table service was a little, you had to get the eye of wait staff to order sweets and coffee, and even then, they left off part of the order.

We stayed at Santa Claus Hotel and this restaurant was close to the hotel so we decided to try. Food was ok, but the service was horrid. We called out to the waitress at least 4 times before they took our order. When the meal arrived, they gave us the wrong order. So we waved our hands and was told... More

Stayed just up the road in the Santa Claus hotel. We enjoyed our meal so much the first night we went back on the second night. Good Mex-Tex style food and plenty of it. Small play area for kids. We went around 6pm both nights but by the time we left they were queuing at the door. Pleasant surroundings lots... More
