Good restaurant with nice employees

Nice and atmospheric restaurant. We were served by a nice interacting employee who knew a few words Dutch. Negative point: Just the main course wasn't enough. Side dishes or starter dish are recommended

Monte Rosa is the restaurant in the City Hotel. Breakfasts are part of the room rate and you're offered a wonderful spread of hot and continental delicacies including reindeer terrine. I had three dinners here and each one was truly delicious. I tried the salmon and the crab soups - small servings but packed with flavour. Also tried the pork... More

First impression was very good! Shown to our table as soon as we stepped inside the restaurant, and our waiter was nice and friendly. The drinks came pretty fast, but between drinks and our main course it took a while. When the food first came, it was worth the wait. I had the braised lamb rump, which was absolutely gorgeous!...

Not my first time, but still better than ever. I had a dinner date with my best friend. Our waiter was wonderful. He was helpful recommending something non-alcoholic for my pregnant friend with her meal. The food was excellent. All courses. Between each course there was just enough time, not too little or too much. And we didn't leave the... More

We approached restaurant from other direction, so we didn't notice that it is a hotel restaurant. I have this belief that hotels can't have good restaurants. Maybe as this restaurant is not located in a chain hotel, so I am happy we chose this place. Restaurant has nice warm atmosphere and decorations are not screaming "Lapland" like in few other...

Visited twice, at ground floor of City Hotel, reservation needed in peak season. Fine service. Starters: tasty beetroth and goat cheese salad, but the oven baked snails to avoid. Main courses: first of all the grilled salmon; excellent the lamb rump and the reindeer stew as well. Desserts nothing special. Serving quite small, not the best if famished.

Promising location in a hotel, near the city centre and a decent looking menu. Unfortunately the food did not live up to expectations and the "gourmet" looking burger from the menu was little more than a highly processed/commercial meat patty. Service was friendly but quite slow - not for a family in a rush to get to a show!

The wooden furniture makes the atmosphere very warm. The waiter we met was very funny trying to speak different languages. I chose the Inari Reindeer and it was very tasty. The dessert was also good. Prices are pretty high like in other places in Rovaniemi.
