Excellent food and excellent service although the restaurant was crowded. I absolutely recommend this place for adults and kids!

A nice restaurant and the food is good, basic mexican but this time the service sucked. We waited for our food for over an hour and a couple in the next table got their food before us even they came 45min later than us. When...we finally got our food no-one didn’t even appologize for the delay.More

Before I went to Helsinki I searched on TripAdvisor for nice restaurants in the area and find out that Restaurant Santa Fee is rather near to my hotel, so I booked a table, due the Covid19 it is best to a book a table in...advance. Santa Fe is rustic, dark restaurant in cozy Mexican style. I ordered their Lamb Chops and it was an excellent choice. Friendly staff.More

Still going strong! Probably corona or just Monday evening, not very many guests visiting. Quick service, nice food, what else is needed? Nothing!

I love santa fe especially in my hometown, but the Helsinki restaurant was a huge disappointment. I went for lunch, ordered some chicken with bbq sauce and fries. The chicken was drier than the saharan desert and had literally no taste to it. It was...like eating cardboard. The fries were ok, but still very dry. The service was rude and the people there looked like they don't wanna be there. They had no customer service skills whatsoever.More

We visited this place during our stay in Helsinki, is situated in a building gallery along with another restaurant called Brooklyn, we had a salad from Santa fe and a Burger from Brooklyn and 2 beers from the bar. You order everything from the bar...and you get your dishes from both restaurants!! You will blend with locals there and the atmosphere is excellent. I recomend itMore

Food was really good but the service was terrible. Had the wine order mixed up, menus left on the table, had to wait for 30 minutes to get served when we came in. And finally the waitress didn't know how to split the bill and...started panicking. I feel sorry for the chef whose excellent cooking is so let down by the service.More

Tex-mex food, taco burger and especially aioli was good. Service was impecable, surprisingly, as not used to that during lunch-time dining.

Avoid this place at lunch time. Poor service and looong waiting time after ordering. At least half an hour..

With family. Everybody took lamb chops because they are speciality of this restaurant. Medium roast with potatoes. Very tasteful, not spicy. This portion has changed from the time visiting first time but not in wrong direction.
