“Good place for dating”
Reviewed April 27, 2012

I used to visit in this place on my first dates, even with a woman who's nowdays my wife. :-D The place has many little lodges in very nice atmosphere. Food is mexican, there's enough it and the price is quite low even you are in the bull's eye of the city!

“Central and busy restaurant - very tasty food!”
Reviewed April 15, 2012

2 bars on the street entrance level and the actual restaurant upstairs - that provided an easy setting when waiting for a table. The restaurant was obviously very busy on a Saturday evening. And I always find that to be a good sign. Menu was diverse, and provided multiple options for various dietary preferances. Service was quick and friendly. And the food - delicious and spicy - no wonder the place was so busy!!

“Great service”
Reviewed February 7, 2012

I went to Santa Fe on a busy Friday night with my friends. We hadn't booked a table and the restaurant was full when we arrived. We asked an estimate of the waiting time and were told that it's about 15 minutes. We were showed to the bar area and ordered drinks. Before we had finished them we were showed to our table.

We were immediately given the menus and the wine list. We ordered drinks first and also got some recommendations from the waitress. The waitress seemed to have enough time for everyone although it was really busy all the time. We waited about 20 minutes for the food. The food was really good and the portions were massive! I think not one of us was able to finish the food since the amount was so big.

I was most impressed by the waitress who - as mentioned above - had time to give recommendations for every client. The service was quick and very friendly all the time.

“Good Mexican style food”
Reviewed June 29, 2010

This Mexican style restaurant is located just next to Market place on the main street of Lahti. They have pretty good menu with lots of choices and also they have some spicy options if you like your meal hot. Prices are not cheap but not too high either, I would say 10-20e for burger meals and 20-30e for steaks. Also tex mex meals are somewhere between 10-20 euros. In summertime they have a terrace which is a popular spot to enjoy a beer or two among locals. Note that restaurant can get quite in the weekends so you might want to make a table reservation.
