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

The athmosphere and decor are really nice in Santa Fe. Yesterday around 5 PM it was Full with candles and fast service still. But the food is not Special.

Great find in Helsinki. I had the voodoo chicken and Mrs Baps the ribs. Awesome. I had a huge plateful of spicy chicken wings and struggled to finish. Mrs Baps gave up on hers!! Good service and priced OK for Helsinki. Well worth a visit.

This used to be one of the best casual dining restaurants in Helsinki. Last here maybe five years ago. It has gone downhill a long way since then. Guacamole like water. Sour cream without the sour. Food took for ever to arrive . Good margaritas though and pleasant staff. Recommended at least for the alcohol.

We had our first lunch in Helsinki at Santa Fe. Loved the food - Cajun Blackened Chicken (grilled cajun magic spiced chicken breast served with onion, sweet pepper, rice and chili sauce) was absolutely delicious! Service was good too.
