We visited this place during our stay in Helsinki, is situated in a building gallery along with another restaurant called Brooklyn, we had a salad from Santa fe and a Burger from Brooklyn and 2 beers from the bar. You order everything from the bar...and you get your dishes from both restaurants!! You will blend with locals there and the atmosphere is excellent. I recomend itMore

Food was really good but the service was terrible. Had the wine order mixed up, menus left on the table, had to wait for 30 minutes to get served when we came in. And finally the waitress didn't know how to split the bill and...started panicking. I feel sorry for the chef whose excellent cooking is so let down by the service.More

Tex-mex food, taco burger and especially aioli was good. Service was impecable, surprisingly, as not used to that during lunch-time dining.

Avoid this place at lunch time. Poor service and looong waiting time after ordering. At least half an hour..

With family. Everybody took lamb chops because they are speciality of this restaurant. Medium roast with potatoes. Very tasteful, not spicy. This portion has changed from the time visiting first time but not in wrong direction.

We had to wait for the food 1 hour and 50 minutes! The waiter didn't told us about the delay in kitchen when we made the order.. We asked about it the first time when 1 hour had passed. She said that the kitchen has...a 45 minutes delay.. We asked the second time at 1 hour and 20 minutes. The waiter said that the kitchen has 1 hour delay! And he said that the order isn't forgotten. We asked again around 1 hour and 50 minutes. Now the waiter asked from the kitchen and they didn't have our order in the kitchen.... Very poor service...More

This place has a great courtyard terrace with a nice terrace bar. It could be a festive recreation of where Tex meets Mex, but they haven't been there. Only a small investment would be needed. First, ditch the loud rap music, there are lots of...better options. Second, upgrade the seating. And third, provide some ambience that reminds us of where the cuisine comes from.More

Basic texmex, nothing very special. Big portions, so suits well if you are starving. Wines were reasonably priced, which was a nice surprice. Friendly and fast service. Table reservation recommended during weekends.

We came quite late for dinner (past 9 pm), but the place was still crowded. We had to wait a couple of minutes for a table. The service is very friendly, and everyone speaks English. The food is good Tex-mex kitchen, but not outstanding. The...startee nachos are a bit boring, to be honest. However, the burritos abs fajitas are very tasty. The portions are really big, and you can get additional sauces and tortillas if you need them. The prices are very reasonable, almost cheap for Finnish standards. Overall, we had a very good time at Santa Fé and definitely recommend it!More

I had a hunger for Tex Mex food and Santa Fe happened to be close by. I didn't expect too much for the food but it was even below that. Service was ok till I got my serving (which came surprisingly quickly) of Fajitas Beef,...after that they totally forgot me and I might have wanted one more beer but since they were not interested I desided to let it be. Food itself was a one smallish beef, two leathery cold tortillas, fried onions and two three small pieces of red paprika + three sauces. Everything was tasteless and if I hadn´t been so hungry I probably wouldn´t eat it. The food was probably precooked and was only warmed up in micro wave oven just before serving. Price was 21,- euro, definitely not worth it. Choose some other place.More
