For a Finnish ravintola, the decour was good. The food wasn't bad, But a far cry from a Mexican fajita from the USA. The service was typical Finnish, not check up on you, not much eye contact. The plates Were small by USA standards.

A nice local restaurant which has served since 1992 and is still well known among locals. Decor is cozy and colourful, Mexican music playing from speakers finishes the fresh atmosphere. As a chili-sensitive customer, I can have dishes mildly spiced - a very welcome feature from a Mexican restaurant. Overall quality of food is mediocre, menu is based mostly on... More

Rio Grande (Myyrmäki, Vantaa) is quite okay for a mexican restaurant. Food is good and service was fine considering the fact that our party contained finnish and australian people. The interior is nice, mexican style restaurant. In lunch time the place is very popular and crowded.

Food is good but portions are quite small and expensive. Sometimes you need to get spicy texmex food with couple of beers.

Basic food, steaks, fish, chicken fajitas etc. Made from quality materials in front of you. Far better than any of the chain restaurants in Vantaa. Recommend.

Not located in the best area, but the restaurant inside was very nicely designed and had a very Tex-Mex feeling to it. The food was quite good, much better than the Amarillo restaurant chain. Would recommend it, and would come here again!

Lovely little tex mex restaurant in Vantaa, but not the best food. The service was alos quite slow, but maybe it was because it was a Sunday. Regardless it was very good value for money.
