This is a place I'm trying to visit when I'm in town. I like the food and this restaurant has been here for ages. This time we came for lunch, I felt the service was not on the level it should be. The person who took our order was arrogant and not service minded at all.

We stumbled across this restaurant whilst walking around Helsinki, from the outside it looks quite dark kind of like a night club. However after walking in at looking at the buffet you'd be crazy to say no for an all you can eat lunch buffet that's only 9,70 €. There was a variety of meats and salad with tortillas and... More

Three restaurants share a courtyard so you can choose between pasta & pizzas, tex mex or grills such as burgers or steaks. Loved it and the food was lovely. About 20 euros per person for food and drink. Band was setting up as we... More

The terrace of Santa Fe is actually a common terrace for three different style restaurants in mid Helsinki. As you sit down the waiter will bring you three different menus to choose from. Tex-Mex, steaks or pizzas from three different kitchens. As for Santa Fe and the terrace, you cannot book a table. Usually you will find a table anyhow.... More

If a restaurant can still be in business with pretty much the same menu for over 20 years I think they must be doing something right. I went here in 1993 and ate Fajitas. I went there last week and ate the same. Still good : )

The first impression was : "what a dark place, cant see, like in a night club" ! Anyway we decided to take a chance and did not regret it at all - true Mexican flavor, big and super tasty dishes, professional service and reasonable costs. With full bellys and peace in mind we left some tip to the waiter and... More

Went to have the lunch buffet that costs only 9,70 €. All you can eat tortillas and coffee/tea. The food was good and service excellent. I really like the atmosphere in this restaurant and have been coming back since 2002 already. Suitable place for family, date night and get together with friends. Not noisy, but comfortable.

Me and a friend shared a tasty beef and a seafood fajita in this cosy, informal restaurant. The beef was very good! the fish was good, but the warm shrimps was rather tasteless.
