We enjoyed three meals at this excellent restaurant attached to the City Hotel. Service was friendly and professional. The food was well cooked, well presented and flavourful. We had three different dishes – reindeer stew, lamb shank and caramelized pork. All three were top notch. The price point for this restaurant is well set as the plates were filling. The... More

I have had lunch here a couple of times and I have been content. Could be a bit more veggie/fish options. On dinner I had the deluxe burger, which was also good. Huge patty, cooked propely tonmedium, home made chips could be a bit more crispy, maybe different potato breed? Very friendly service on every visit.

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

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

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...
