I like this restaurant but food is not anymore special. It´s kind of ok. Stuff here is really nice and atmosphere is kind of relaxed and cosy. Nice drinks and menu works well but nothing is like really amazing stuff.

Had dinner here with a couple of friends. Good service....the ambience makes for casual dining and unwinding after a hard day's work. Tucked in on a back alley, this may be tough to find, but worth it

Our team of three selected Santa Fe as a restaurant of our pedagogical lunch (educational training session). From lunch menu Ribs were selected. Food was very good, service fast, and waiter participated our discussion. Altogether nice experience although portion was too small for me. The restaurant itself was very cosy.

The food here is the usual Mexican stuff. It was quite nice, but nothing special. I had fajitas which tasted ok, although there was much more onion than meat and only 2 tortillas making it not great value. The atmosphere in the restaurant is quite nice and buzzy though, and it's open on a Sunday night when quite a lot... More

Take your time. No table reservations can be made. But a short wait and your time is rewarded. Wait at the bar or have a apetixer while waiting. Keep your eyes open for tables clearing.

Sante Fé is just horrible. It might have been a fresh and different "Mexican" restaurant in Helsinki for 15 years ago, but now this restaurant is nothing more than a shadow of its glory days. The menu is really boring. I decided to order the Chèvre Chicken, which turned out to be a terrible mess of flavors not matching together.... More

This is something I eat at special occasions. Somehow I have a history with this steak. You should really try it.

I was there for having a business lunch with the customer. We ordered: -Chicken Fajitas (15€) -Chicken Fajitas with extra beef (19€) -Big diet cola, 0.5L (4€) Because of rush hour (lunch time) the service was really slow. It took 45 minutes to have meals - but because of that they offered free coffees for us. The food was tastefull... More
