And it was monday evening. Waitress was great, but that was it. Food was cold and we wait for it long time. I ask my steak medium plus and i get it rare. Fries was cold and hard.

We ended up here as we were unable to get a table at Fransmanni or Restaurant Nili. In the end we were quite happy with our third choice restaurant. The food here is a mixture of Mexican and American food - you won't find any Finnish dishes on the menu. All the portions are of a good size and are... More

Normally in Finland during a work days you get a decent lunch around 10 euros. Same price here but the quality of the food let some room to ask for more. Soup of the day (blue cheese) was terrible. Meatballs were quite all right but the graving and mushed potatoes we're not. Service? Not included to this concept.

Following the advise of tripadvisor that Amarillo offers you large portions, I can only agree with it! Upon arrival you receive some free appetizers: chips with dip sauce. I got an excellent service in fluently English. Food presentation was also perfect. Recommended if you are hungry!

The Scandinavian countries are usually (very) expensive. In restaurant Amarillo in Rovaniemi, the start and end of our 3000 km long journey through Lapland, we chose a Texas grill steak (medium, just as we asked) with French fries, plenty of vegetables and a local beer, reasonable price too: this meal was delicious! We even got an unexpected and free "amuse... More

Basically exactly what you would expect. Standard fare served well. Wasn't quite a totally western dish but it was nice to get some local interpretation nonetheless
