I have been to this restaurant several times and it seems that you sometimes get good food and good service, but sometimes as well the opposite. The restaurant could need a facelift since it's getting worn out.

Rosso and Amarillo are the two largest places in town and this is not just a fluke. Both have their ups and downs, but I prefer Amarillo, if you do not go at rush hour. If you go out on a weekend then you should be aware it will take an eternity before you get any food. However, it is... More

We had a class reunion at Amarillo. We arrived at the restaurant around 17.00 when there wasn’t that many customers yet. Also we had preordered everything. I guess that was one reason for the smooth service. For starters we had sweet pork nachodas, main course was black and white chicken and for dessert absolutely delicious brownie. Mmm...

Have eaten here numerous times when I've visited Vaasa. Well worth the visit. Hugely calorific but hey, you just can't help yourself. You really need to try the chicken wings (a favourite of my travelling companions!) Highly recommended.

The burgers are ok, but they really don't have a clue how to make good tex-mex food. Mediocre service.

Slow service and a bit ignorant service, also when the place is not very crowded. The food is often cold and has not very much taste. An ok place to go for drinks though.

Went to Amarillo, when Vaasa were playing Ice Hockey, there were several screens in this place, and they were all showing Vasa Ice Hockey, and were all well viewed by the punters. The Bar was really very busy and very noisy, but as there was a buzz for their local team, it was quite exciting. Who Knew a game of... More
