Decent chain restaurant

Amarillo is a okay chain restaurant that serves more or less mexican style food with a European twist. They also have live music once in a while. It is located right at the heart of Rovaniemi so it close to the main hotels in the area. Food itself isn't anything special, average at best. Still, it... read more

you can't tell from the outside, but inside, is very spacious and you can have lunch, dinner letting the kids play in the slides...and toys they have for them. The Mexican food...is not so authentic, but for something coming so far away...they make tex mex finnish version quite ok! I liked it...and I am Mexican. I am a little generous...I... More

Stayed in Christmas Cottages and took a taxi into town. Having read reviews on Trip Advisor our first choice Fransmanni was booked up and so we went to Amarillo which is next door. Food was very good and service was also excellent. It is expensive especially with 3 hungry kids but it seems reasonable compared to other restaurants in Rovaniemmi,... More

Went as it was next to our Hotel. The steak, Nachos buffalo wings and burgers were fantastic. Would recommend expect to pay as it's an expensive resort but worth the money

Fransimann and Nili (the famous rovaneimi restaurants) behaved high handed and luckily we went to Amarillo. Friendly staff, great margaritas and good food. It was a very good and fun experience.

Just had a very nice meal after sampling their version of Glogi which was very nice indeed! The steak was a little underdone but nice none the less, son had the burrito and wife enjoyed a chicken salad. With cheesecake and brownies for dessert it was a lovely meal and the staff were very good

While the service at Amarillo was warm and friendly, the food was absolutely terrible. In an attempt to create Westernized food, both my wife and I had to leave our meals uneaten because of the terrible taste. This was the only restaurant in all of Rovaniemi that we had this experience at and I would never want to set foot... More
