Monterosa delivered what we have come to expect from restaurants in Finland; a very good meal that's subtly different from every other meal in the country, but accompanied by fairly leisurely service. We started with pea soup, crayfish soup, snails in blue cheese sauce and goat cheese & spinach pie. Mains were reindeer stew and grilled salmon. Desserts were white... More

We went there to eat when we had read the rewies from here. We ate escartos and kingcrabsoup for startes and for maincourse slowly cooked ox cheek and flamed salmon. Every dish was invitingly presented and delicisous. The waiter, quit a young man, was the epitome of hospitality. We higly recommed this place.

Rainy sunday evening in rovaniemi; no one around. We choose this restaurant to taste tipical finnish food. We need a table for four: two adults and two children. Only three tables are occupied, and only by adults, but the waiter tells us it's complete. "All the tables reserved?" "Yes" We go out with a bit of sadness and a great... More

Well, restaurant's decor is nice but the meal (lamb) offered as lunch buffet was nothing special. Next time another restaurant.

Has a very nice atmosphere and feels authentic, not too crowded during the summer months. Food was excellent, salmon soup very rich and tasty, the Inari reindeer absolutely magnificent. Service was very friendly and the waitress made sure we felt welcome and had everything we needed. Will definitely return. Not cheap, but great value for the money.

Buffet lunch is worth having. The price is average and the quality is good. You are likely to have to wait for table for a while as the place is popular with the locals at the lunch time. When it comes to dinner, the quality is fine but the prices may be a bit high. Occasionally the time between the... More

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.
