Tex mex still going strong

I remember this place since many years from the "first boom" of ethnic restaurants in Helsinki. The same concept still appeals to many young(er than me) people and I can't deny this being a nice place for a thirst evoking meal in the beginning of a party night. Last weekend beef burrito was... read more

Dropped by this place a while back and had pretty good ribs so we come again this time a friend and I had the nachos starter and seafood fajitas main, nachos were ok if you like lashings of runny canned cheese which I don't. Then the fajitas... small overcooked shrimps and tasteless salmon, soggy fajita veg and disgusting guacamole from... More

This is mexican gone wrong or a poor attempt of helmex. Had shrimp queidadilla for appertizer - runny cheece which had no mex flavor covered the plate. This dish had not a touch of Santa Fe. For main I had Beef Fahitas - beefo overcooked and the veggies were were just uneatable (soggy, weirdly seasoned - just wrong!). So, this... More

Good Mexican food with fast and pleasant service. Menu has the usual Tex-Mex food. I particularly likes the beef burrito. Kids also like this place and the kids menu is good.

Beef Fajitas - nice, edible, expensive. Chile con carne - bland, overpriced. Service was friendly and with a smile, quick turn around. We were looking to get in, eat, get out, and catch the ferry back to estonia. It did the job, left no to though, the food wasn't that good and probably wouldn't return given the vast amount of...

Looking for good, Mexican food? Don't want to spend a fortune? Like swift and kind service? OK, then have lunch or dinner here. Simple as that.

Very surprised to stumble across this delightful place. If you are in the mood for mexican food, I doubt you'll find a more suitable place to eat and drink. I had the beef fajitas and the chocolate cake. Both were excellent.

Santa Fe is an old famous Mexican restaurant in Helsinki. It is a very famous restaurant near the railway station. Food is good but nothing special. I can recommend that restaurant. Never disappoint there and always had a good service.
