Sadly we were disappointed in our meals. We were had the beef enchilada and beef burrito, both with mince meat. Not the typical Mexican we are used to.

Expensive prices for average food. The meals we had were large, but mainly comprised of far too many chips, unripe ingredients in the salsa and uninspired, un-dressed salad. Sadly we didn't have a good experience and won't be returning.

SantaFe offers a good Mexican menu at reasonable prices. The food servings are large and if you like your food hot as in chilli, try the kicking horse sauce. The restaurant offers a full bar and is also BYO. The specials board changes regularly.
