Amarillo - always a safe bet in Rovaniemi

If you're looking for a place to enjoy some fairly common tex-mex food with your friends, family, or larger groups then Amarillo is as safe a bet as any in Rovaniemi. The wait staff is kind and professional, the kitchen staff is animated and always smiling, and the food is consistently solid. I... read more

Ordered Hill Billy's Country Chicken, - and there came two small chicken pieces on my plate. If I didnt know better, I could have thought it was "kids menu" they gave me... Not nearly enough to get full...

We had dinner in Amarillo restaurant and the main motivation to go to this specific restaurant was to check out the quality as a lot of tables were occupied whereas in the restaurants nearby you could only spot limited people - to keep long story short : Food and service was ok (not great) but the overall atmosphere was pleasant...

We were searching a Finnish restaurant in Rovaniemi, but had no luck, so we went to this kind of Mexican restaurant. The food is mostly a bit spicy, but good, the waiter very kind and the prices very decent.

Easy and not too expensive place. Food tastes ok, but when coming here many times, you end up thinking that all dishes taste pretty much like the others. On the other hand: this is a place for also the local people.

We has a lovely evening here with our young children. The staff were brilliant and nothing was too much trouble. Like most places in Finland they cater excellently for for gluten and or lactose intolerance and we all came away well fed, relaxed and happy.

I had a dinner here and chose reindeer tortillas, almost 30 eur. Meat was overcooked to dry, which is the only way you can spoil the reindeer meat. Most of the stuff was from a tin, like quacamole. Horrrible stuff and especially compared to the high price.
