Firstly, the positives. The service here was very good, with all staff encountered being diner-focussed and attentive. The restaurant also looks very appealing and is clean and well presented inside, with well catered tables and pleasant seating.

Unfortunately the food quality lets it down. The burger was poor and looked completely misplaced in an oversized bun. I really expected a thicker, more quality piece of meat, but instead had the kind of meat that the McDonalds opposite would serve. It tasted ok, but certainly wasn't restaurant standard. A real shame as I was looking forward to the meal.

Went for a dinner with family and thought that this would be good choice. Also when entering to the restaurant it seemed to be good, there was kids menu available and also the atmosphere seemed to be fine.
But after that it was not that good. We needed to wait quite long for a service. Then finally when we managed to order we needed to wait a long time before we received our foods. And we even had some snacks as appetizer in between (that came in OK time) and still the time waiting for main courses felt extremely long. Well food was bit below average for this kind of "american" restaurant in Finland. But service was again not too good. It took several minutes after receiving main courses, that we received wine (that we ordered already at the same time with food...).

I would not recommend this restaurant, food was average or bit below but service was slow.

At a first glance it looks like a typical American slash Mexican type of fast food place. It´s clean and atmosphere is okay. The menu is fair and so are the prices. Then the food starts to arrive. Most of the food is dripping with oil, deep fried and flavors are very plastic. I didn´t like even one portion I ordered.

It´s an American bistro type of food chain with the worst quality I´ve seen for a long long time. Also service is very average. I can´t really recommend this place to anyone.

Tip:
- There are plenty of good options to eat somewhere else.

Very tasteful food, I wish Chico's would a have a restaurant in my town because I'd visit there like every second day ! Their sandwiches are best I've ever tasted !!
