Good, but left wanting

To explain 3/5 rating: Santa Fe has a great special of the day menu, that repeats every week (Mon Margarita, Taco Tues...etc) Good value for the peso. The happy hour is also really good, 2 for 1 cocktails and so on. On the food itself, it is a nice take on South West (USA) Mexican food, or... read more

Great atmosphere for group of friends. Food was nice. Service was good. We had rather a large group and they really catered well bringing all our food out together. Great variety of food choices and drink options. Would recommend for a party for sure or place to start the night.

When we first sat down I was not so impressed as there was still morsels of food left on the table and chairs from the previous people. That apprehension soon faded once we started eating. The nachos are amazing, as are the burritos. The food is a bit on the expensive side but the portions are large. The service was... More

We visited here for a birthday party of 7. The service was shocking. If we weren't all excited about the birthday, we probably would have left. The waitress was not helpful at all. We wanted to order a mojito off the menu, and they said they ran out of mint...? We ordered a fish bowl of Coco Loco which was... More

I visited Santa Fe last night with a group of 6 of my friends for dinner and YUM! We arrived just in time for happy hour which was a bonus (two for one cocktails!) - the standout was the mango chilli margarita.. sweet with a chilli kick! We weren't sure what to order but the waitress was extremely helpful -... More

I recommend skipping this place and going down the road to Mad Mex or Zambrero, they have great food at much better prices. The food at Santa Fe is alright, they even serve jalapeño poppers which is uncommon in Perth! However the meals and the drinks are very overpriced. We're talking average $25 for a burrito... At the end when... More

Went to Santa Fe for the first time for a dinner with my wife and 2 kids. We went early (5:30pm) so gathered they were still setting up and that was the reason we were pretty much ignored after our initial sitting. That aside i had to keep getting up to order drinks which i could have totally brushed aside... More

Really loved this restaurant for its truly traditional Mexican food. The atmosphere is fun and festive and the variety of dishes are good. The service is not up to scratch and need some work and orders get mixed up and forgotten when it gets busy.
