“Nice Mexican food for reasonable price.”
Reviewed 6 August 2014 via mobile

Our family visit here every now and then. Last visit was at luch time; the adults had chicken burritos and children bacon hambuugers from the menu. Unfortunately the standard was not at it's best - probably because of the lunch time although it was not crowded at all. Parents' burritos were not tasty and children's bacon was far too uncooked - it should be crispy.

“Real mexican food with a Finish touch”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

Lahti is maybe not the place you think on, when having a week end in helsinki, but between work I had some time and visitd the town, especially for the big lake, I was on with on this work trip and I went hungry, even though I have spent many days in Lahti, I have never been at this resturant, but I will be back, the menu is maxican and cajun kitchen, normally not that often one sees that, so I had a mexican burger, consist of chicken breast and then 2 beef (hamburger) a lot of fresh salat as topping, and is was big, to big, but it was very good, meat well prepared and the topping was really fresh as well, it is worth a visit and the surroundings was good looking, the service was superb, the waiter was very nice and kind and was really paying attention not to much not to little, nice experience

“Reliable”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

When beeing in the city of Lahti and if thinking of reliable places to eat there, Santa Fe is one alternative. I always order there lamb chops. Mostly portion is fine. Vegatables are not overdone and medium lamb is mostly medium. Rawmaterial it self seems to be good. I don´t take any stand of how´s Santa Fe as tex mex or barbeque restaurant but good basics concerning making eatable food are often achieved.
Last time my chops were almost perfect but vegetables had some extra water as leftover from cooking, which spoiled having a very good portion.
If thinking of standards in the city of Lahti concerning restaurants, you can´t expect too much. So Santa Fe is in that perspective working solution.

“Good food”
Reviewed 10 October 2013

The space is divided into two floors. Coffee drinkers are downstairs and that makes diners floor more quiet. Reastaurant in upstairs is little worn but ok. Space is quite big, but not too noisy. Service varies according to the waiter, but it is generally good. Food is delicious and the portion size is ok.
