Very nice service and the decor etc. are also nice for relaxed Mexican dinner. But my dinner just tasted bad / had no taste and was also half cold in the middle (don't know if this was design or not?) Size was big, so it would have fed two (now really didn't feel like finishing my menu)

We went to Santa Fe for some night time snacks and drinks before heading to bed after a concert day in Helsinki. The waiter was very attentive and we got our drinks quickly. We also ordered some snacks to go with the drinks and they were fresh and tasty. Also the atmosphere on the terrace was cheerful!

I had dinner on the terrace yesterday. The 3 menu-system is a bit confusing but they share the terrace with 2 other restaurants so you'll end up with more choice. We both had the Fajitas Lite which basically are veggie fajitas which is a favorite of mine. The service is not bad at all but there is room for improvement.... More

Ate here one night and the food was good, but there was some strange seasoning in the fajita. There was plenty of food and the service was ok.

Hi, I booked yesterday a pizza in this restaurant, a normal one with chicken . And when I got it, the pizza was a bit burned , too dry. The price was quite normal fortunately 13, 9€ but for sure I will not put my feed inside this restaurant again.

Every time I visit Helsinki Santa Fe is a must visit place… It because like a tradition. Throughout the years the quality of food stayed the same (quite ok)… But the quality of service fell from bad to worse. My daughter (born 1999) was less than 3 years old when I asked her where did she want to eat and... More

I went to Santa Fé for a dinner with friends, because the restaurant was participating to Eat Helsinki (Syö Helsinki) festival. During the festival some dishes cost 10 € in selected restaurant in Helsinki. There were in total six of us, and we all ordered vegetarian burritos (normally 13,60 €) because they were on offer. Since we got to the... More

Large portions and a great atmosphere. Very busy but the food was bought out in good time. The toilets were less than desirable though.
