Mango Chili Margaritas are AWESOME!!!

We landed up at Santa Fe on a Saturday early evening without a reservation. The restaurant was packed and staff asked us to wait for 1.5 hours by the bar. We were pleasantly surprised to know they had happy hours and we decided to stay for drinks and go somewhere else for food. We tried multiple... read more

This is hard one, we went on a Monday night & the place was pretty busy. On speaking with the manager at the end they were short staffed (2 didn't turn up). But we weren't left waiting on food & mistakes still occurred. We arrived just before 7 & in time for happy hour, two cocktails for the price of... More

I love Mexican food and was not disappointed with Santa Fe. The food serves were very generous and super tasty. The staff were busy and run off their feet but did their best to service our table despite the Resturant being jam packed. I have travelled all through Mexico and I can confidently say that although the food is slightly... More

We dined at Santa Fe this evening and even though they were busy and we stupidly didn't make a booking the guy on the door greeted us with a smile and politely said that they would prepare a table for the 8 of us in a few moments. We did wait around 5 mins and were served promptly. We decided... More

Have been to Mexico many times and live in California.. this restaurant would NOT last a week in America. Horrible. Really random food pairings and nothing like Mexican. Not to mention I have been sick all afternoon since eating there.

Reasonably priced but quite tasteless, bland food. They should provide some hot sauces and condiments on the table to add a bit of zing to the food. Disappointing for any real Mexican food lovers! The service was slow as well, which is on a par with many Perth restaurants.

First I will start off by saying the wait and bar staff were not on their game during our visit last night.. The drinks were all over the place, late and incorrect... The table was extremely cramped despite their being many other empty ones it seemed a little cramped. After saying that I am hoping that they were just having... More

My favorite style of restaurants and now Santa Fe would be my favorite Mexican in Perth. Many try to commit but none compare. Not only was the meal excellent but the customer service followed tonight. The atmosphere was loud but welcoming. I strongly recommend the chili steak quesadilla as my meal was the food envy of others.
