The food at Santa Fé is delicious and servers are friendly. The restaurant can get very busy, especially on the weekends. I recommend the Beef Fajitas and Frozen Strawberry Margaritas.

This is one of my favourites in Helsinki. But as usual, service is as usual: hit and miss. I have been here when they have excellent service and other times you just need to wait for ages to some service.

Food is good. Tasty as I remembered. You can also opt to have lunch buffet - good value for money.

This is one of places where I go frequently. This place has probably best bbq-ribs in town and has a nice athmossphere. Santa fe is also moderately priced and no reservation needed.

Tired place. In addition to its central location there is no reason to go. A chain eatery belonging to the Rafla chain ( none of which are offering any gourmet experiences) This restaurant’s level has not fallen compared to the opening of the year 1991, when the char-grilled portions were really new and good. Rest of the world has passed it and by a mile. The menu includes just the same Tex-Mex meals like everywhere else from “Amarillo” via some Myyrmäki shopping mall restaurant to Rovaniemi “Rosso” (More chain restaurants).
No burnt steaks, or cold food, but nothing special to like either, one of those places, where after the third time it is already difficult to come up with anything that you would want from the list. Lots of ready made ingredients in servings.
The lucky central location ensures a steady visitor flow, so there is obviously no need to improve ever.
P.S. Could the Corona beer ad finally be removed when that has not, at least for 10 years, been available in Santa Fe? Sure, the “free spirit beer” with it’s yeasty aroma is instead. ...

Santa Fe was opened years ago when Texmex food boomed in Finland. It is located inner yard at downtown very centrally.
Menu is big plenty of options to everyone, maybe too much, making chaotic, as main streams are BBQ, burgers, cajun and texmex.
I had New Orleans burger, which was bit better than mediocre, problem was that it was lame, I was expecting bit more spiced, but I guess it is victim of must suit everyone politics.
Staff was polite and service was fast.
