Santa Fé was chosen as the best restaurant in the 90's. And in the 90's this place has stayed. The food really never has seen Mexico. The food is really meaningless. They even seem to use the "HP sauce" as seasoning. Iwill give an extra star for the friendly service and for the system where you can order from the... More

This is a collection of three restaurants that share a common outdoor seating area and bar. They each have their own inside seating area as well. The "outdoor" area is in the middle of building, so there are no views. They give you menus for all three restaurants (Mexican, Steakhouse, Italian), so this is a good place to meet a... More

Toimiii ehkä parhaiten 4-6 hlön porukoille. Kaikki listalla oleva ruoka on hyvää, kalaa ei muistaakseni ole, joten pihvi-/kana-, fajitas- ja kasvis-/juuresruokien ystäville. Tuon kalan puute on muuten hyvä asia, tuoksut muuttaisivat koko idean. Palvelu on nopeaa ja henkilökunta ystävällistä, kohtuuhintainen kun huomioi sijainnin. Works best for 4-6 people. All the food on the list are perfect, so you can choice... More

We chose that place because one of our partners were from Mexico,so we decided to have Mexican dinner. The place is very nice with candles and Mexican decorations and the atmosphere was very cozy. The food was good, and the portions were ok! We had some cocktails and tequila shots and they were really good! Definitely can recommend this place... More

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... More

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,... More
