Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We went here to have some dinner and were pleasantly surprised of how good the vegan options were. We had the vegan burrito bowl and we both loved it. You can choose how spicy you want it. I had medium which was still fairly spicy...but a good level. My partner had the spicy one and indeed it was very much so. He's still dreaming about it 😋😂More

Burrito bowl was wonderful - added feta & mango salsa, it absolutely hit the mark. Kids menu available, more creative options than you usually find, which we appreciated. Very friendly staff behind the counter. Will absolutely return.

This restaurant’s vi e is great! The food was great and the staff so welcoming and warm! I would recommend the burritos! If you pass by on Tuesday, they have taco Tuesday!

Visited for dinner in February 2022, as we had seen the good reviews of this place, and I was not disappointed. The tacos were simply delicious, and we happened to visit on a Tuesday ... Taco Tuesday ... so the prices were even lower than...normal (but already quite affordable). Can definitely recommend, and try the fish tacos. Also, we tried several cocktails, they too were absolutely great. Would recommend to reserve as the place is quite small and definitely popular.More

We had dinner in Yuca but were seated in the attached cafe place. Food was good but nothing special. Service is ok given self service at the bar but serving the drinks took really long (actually they were forgotten and I had to pick them...up at the bar 20 min after the order) Good value for money though. Would maybe visit again for lunch but not for dinner.More

Excellent food at very reasonable prices. I had the mushroom tacos. Some of the best I’ve tasted. I wasn’t that hungry so portion was perfect but really a starter portion. My husband had the pork burrito. Equally tasty. Still in Finland. Could be back for...a second visit yet :)More

Decent Mexican tacos - v good deal on taco Tuesdays after 2pm For our palette - we felt The meat taco was better than the fish taco connected to a cafe so you can get your food delivered to your table whilst you have coffee

We were on our way home from Levi to the south of Finland when we decided to stop in Rovaniemi. I had read good reviews of this place. The restaurant is very small and it was almost packed full at lunchtime. The decor is quaint...and with the Mexican music you can almost imagine being in an authentic taqueria in Mexico (even with a temperature of -20 celsius outside). We managed to get a table and the friendly waitress soon took our orders. We didn’t have to wait too long for our burrito and burrito bowl with chicken to arrive. The dishes were nicely plated and the taste blew our minds away! We have never eaten as good Mexican food. All the fresh ingredients tied in perfectly together. The portions were of good size and very reasonably priced. Don’t forget to try the condiments at the table. Especially the avocado sauce is soooo good! We want this restaurant in Helsinki, too! We have already discussed booking flights to Rovaniemi just to visit this place again. Go, go, go! It’s the best Mexican restaurant in Finland!!More

We visited on Christmas Day and enjoyed the meal which was packed with fresh flavours. Kids menu was great, tacos and nachos was a good combination. Nice drinks and good for vegetarian, mushroom burrito was lovely. Service was a little slow as they were busy....Had to wipe our own table when we sat down. Booked in advance as this is a small place and we saw lots of people had to be turned away. It is next to Cafe and Bar 21 and you can walk through and that looked really nice for a drink and dessert, but unfortunately we didn't have time to try that.More
