The staff is amazing. Even during busiest nights, they have time for a word or two. The food is great, can't get enough. The drinks that they create there, are also, just amazing. Since 2011 (since I've been in legal drinking age) this has been the number one place to hang out with friends. I love this place till death.... More

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 is usually pretty crowded.... More

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
