Good food

Had a meal for 2 on a Friday night. Busy but were able to get a table straight away. Took a while to get our wine, and food was about 45min wait - but we were told about the waiting time before hand. My date had a burger and I had a the chicken pocket - we were both very... read more

Loved the food here. Had the lamb and goats cheese. Great hospitality and huge drinks. Big n frosty brew ski was great. They even do it in a non alcoholic version.

This place is a chain so the menu is pretty basic, but the food is just strange. I had the chicken pocket, which was a tortilla bowl of lettuce with bland chicken breast, salsa and a huge serving of goat cheese topped with some sort of cherry jam... Just plain strange, not tex-mex at all... I asked for hot sauce... More

For a mexican food lover it was a great disappointment with the food. I had the burrito. The guacamole was horrible (artificial can stuff) and the sauces did not compliment the dish.

Nice little lunchtime place in a shopping centre near the airport. Mexican/Burger lunch specials. Pretty tasty and friendly service. Not fine dining, but reasonably priced lunch.

I've been to many Amarillo'S in Finland and while I normally find the food delicious but the service pretty ordinary and slow, this time the service was excellent: we didn't have a booking but they were able to organise a table for our party of 13 relatively quickly. Also, they informed us already upon arrival that there was about a... More

Not my cup of tea for sure. Loud music, below average food and poor service. I'm going there only in cases where other neighbouring restaurants are closed. Benefit of Amarillo is that the kitchen is open later than neighbours.

It's a nice place a bit expensive I think for the style of restaurant but the food was ok and the service was ok too

A typical chain restaurant in a tex mex style. Rather often these Amarillo-restaurants are in combination with Sokos-hotels. Partly also here (since there is a Sokos-hotels next to it in this same "shopping centre"). The food is ok, just edible, but not very good or especially delicious. I'd say price-quality relationship is not very well...
