We were a large group so we had the buffet. Very good, a bit more than the standard. A nice variety of salads.

Staff is always making sure that everything is okay and atmosphere casual and cozy. Sometimes this place is very crowded so if you are hungry on a... More

If you go to an Amarillo in any Finnish and next day to another it will be easy. There are no big differences in these "Texmex" restaurants. The food is OK and the portion is good. Amarillo is an easy going place.

The Finnish aren't known for their Tex-Mex so I was a little weary of eating here - it was more necessity and ease of access than it was informed choice but I was pleasantly surprised. Food was decent and unlike Polish iterations of Tex-Mex that I have become accustomed to, it was actually spicy. Had some Tacos with hot sauce... More

I was staying at the hotel attached and used this restaurant on both occasions. The food is ok and would say its basic pub food with a Texan, Mexican feel. There was nothing wrong with the meals i would have preferred a home made burger and not a de frosted one as it seemed. I might be wrong, but it... More

We were here last friday with my brother after work. We had Pulled Pork pockets and it was delicious, just great. And the service was great too. We certainly will go again.

Dinner for two adults with a five-year-old. Huge portion size, average taste. Quite salty. Table was not clean, tableware on the floor. Waitresses chatting bad jokes and minding their own business. 3 for the food and 2 for service.
