Easy "mexican" food

This is probably one of the most legendary "mexican" restaraunts in whole Helsinki. Food is easy, meet, tortillas and guacamole. Food is okayesh and usually is served fast. Come here for a nice meal.

After reading the first rewies here wedecided to give it a try and... Left being dissappointed. The food was ok but far from being tasty or worth trying more than once. Strange, that people seem to like the place but the resson might be reasonable pricing. You get what you pay for: the tortillas were ok, just the cheese on... More

I've visited Santa Fe many times before and I really enjoy the restaurant. Good atmosphere, good food and excellent service. This time we had chicken salad and chicken fajitas. The food was awesome as always. The guy who served us did a great job. Will visit again next time I'm in Helsinki.

I love Mexican food and this was one of the reasons we went to this restaurant. Santa Fe also has a nice terrace (partly covered) - in summer with good weather it is a must to eat outside. The atmosphere was nice, the music was good. The service was quick and very professional. I took a glass of house wine... More

This is my favourite Mexican place in Helsinki. Good Mexican food, large portions, and live music. In the summer it is difficult to find a table so you may need to wait in the bar. Highly recommended.

The place has so much potential, live music, nice atmosphere but terrible food. The worst chips, salsa and guacamole (how do you mess up chips, salsa and guac?). I should have read the reviews before the visit. One review said the food was not fit for a dog, I agree. Not sure the sea gulls would the food.

Santa Fe is always a nice place just to have a drink or meal. The fajitas are very good and large (at least for a woman). Atmosphere is nice and during weekends the is often live music. The outdoor seating are is nice and there is plenty of room inside too. Strawberry margarita is very nice :)

Stepped in with a few friend to have a bite. Good dishes but maybe the the menu could be refreshed and some twist added to it. Maybe more authentic Mexican tastes could be added etc. It feels bit dated, return to 90s ... the seating in the inside court yard is nice and colourful, downstairs is too dark and could... More

The place I went was outside, in between buildings with a partial covering so it was somewhat annoying when it started to rain.

Came across this restaurant while exploring Helsinki and decided on an early dinner here. Very hot day outside but the interior was cool and welcoming. Friendly and efficient service, food a good standard of Tex Mex. We enjoyed our meal and were pleased at the reasonable price.
