Good food and service. If you expect large portions though go somewhere else. Personally I recommend the reindeer stew.

We stayed at The City Hotelli Rovaniemi as part of an organized tour, and as we're not interested in the optional dinner excursion, we hang around the hotel restaurant for a quiet dining experience. It turned out to be quite a rewarding experience! I suppose to be fair, Rovaniemi is not a big town by any standard in this part... More

Food was excellent. Service wasn't. Our server forgot many times who wanted what and it took forever to get our drinks and meal. And it took even longer to get the check. Server was too busy and running around all the time which was annoying. He was lucky we don't have a tipping culture.

We went here, since our no.1 choice was closed. The reindeer was abit chewy and tough. Would not go here again, since the food was really expensive for the quality.

Monte Rosa looks suspiciously like a more wealthy cousin of the characterless hotel chain restaurants that this city is full of. And it is even hosted by a hotel (City Hotel). But as a restaurant it is much better. They advertise themselves as serving modern food with an 'Arctic twist'. For my main dish I had reindeer cooked in three... More

While doing a stay at the City Hotel in downtown Rovaniemi we dined at the hotel's Restaurant Monte Rosa a couple evenings, and I wanted to throw along my impressions which might help you out if you're considering a dinner here. If you would like to see what's on the menu before you make a reservation, the restaurant does make... More

I visited this restaurant with my wife at 15:30, between lunch and dinner time. The restaurant inside was relatively dark but moody with orange lights. We had salmon soup and king prawn soup as appetizers, and my wife said she prefered stronger taste for prawin soup. For main course, we ordered grilled reindeer and grilled salmon, and both meals were... More

We were at the City Hotel where this restaurant is located. We had dinner on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. The food was delicious and the service was very good. Breakfast was also excellent with a wide variety of food available.
