An adequate restaurant

Nice handy restaurant at the ground floor of the Sokos hotel. Not really my cup of tea but the food was adequate. They seem to have some obsession with Onions though. Worth a visit if you don't want to venture outside.

Turns out, the place is Tex Mex, not mexican, so that settles the pronunciation of Amarillo ("illo" not "eeyo") question we had going in. First, the chips and salsa. This is extremely important because it almost without fail sets the tone for the rest of the meal. The chips and salsa experience was equivalent to buying a $1 bag of... More

The menu really caters to a lunch appetite. Unfortunately they are primarily open for dinner. If your expecting a good southern Texan style meal you will be disappointed. The food is good, but far short of great. I have been here a number of times. It is a good appetizer restaurant to grab a few brews before you journey out.... More

Visited Amarillo today with my husband and 14 month old son. Staff very friendly and took the time to play with our son. Food was tasty we had the Naga burger, pulled pork burger and chicken from the kids meal. Food served in a decent time, ordered 2 large beers in frozen glasses which are great. Great atmosphere and will... More

Had a few varied nights in here, clubbing, pubbing and now eating.... I rate the above activities in the order I have listed them with the eating being the least I am fond in doing in this establishment... The staff are friendly, the place is clean and there's a nice atmosphere but the food is standard chain food affair.... I... More

Eaten here many time during stays in Kotka. Lots of variety on the menu from salad to burger to delicious steak or ribs. Even fajita if you fancy. Typical restaurant chain menu but food is always delicious and comes in big portions. Staff are excellent and very welcoming. Very good for groups of people and there is a bar with... More

Ok I admit that I like to go here mainly because of their chicken wings BUT I have had other dishes too from their menu, as have my friends too and all of them are tasty. Their hamburgers deserve also a special mention - they are very tasty, juicy (and very big ones available too if you're very hungry). Staff... More

This restaurant is one of the Sokos hotel establishment here in Kotka. Food does not taste so Mexican as it suppose to do. Really hectic atmosphere on the weekends. Wines costs alike heaven, botlle of basic 6 Euros red wine will make you cry and add bill almost 30 Euros extra.

This restaurant is inside the Sokos hotel. The food was just OK; I have eaten better Tex Mex than this (for example TGIF in UK, Chi Chi's in Belgium). Service was friendly but could be better (brought wrong dish).

I went for dinner at Amarillo with about 7 of my work colleagues on a Wednesday night and it was a nice place for a meal, everyone seemed to enjoy their food, I had a burger which was really delicious as was the wine I had. It had a good atmosphere for a group of people wanting dinner and drinks... More
