Good but small portions

Very cozy atmosphere. English speaking waiters and menu. The Restaurant belongs to the city hotel. Food was good. The dish "reindeer cooked two ways" for 35€ was very small though.

We ate here on our first night in Rovaniemi because we were staying at the City a Hotel, which the restaurant is attached to. They were apparently booked out. The head waitress offered us a " deal", where we could have the buffet for 30 Euro each. Sounded good at first, but the vegetables were not good, the roast beef... More

One of the best "ravintola" we found in Finland. Very cozy place, great welcoming from the staff, amazing food. We had some fantastic Lapland specialties, for a reasonable price (if compared with the expensive finnish standards)

This restaurant would earn to be refurbished and the menu could be renewed, when it comes to holiday specials. I was here with a group other local residents, and we had booked the christmas special dinner, which was prepared only by order. The quality of the main course was a big disappointment as the meat was not only over cooked... More

I had the reindeer cooked two ways. It was really delicious and the beer selection was great but it was 35€ for basically a snack, maybe 100g of reindeer in total. Had to go get a burger afterwards

Arrogant We could not eat in this restaurant. We had phoned during the morning to book a table for 3 person (name Cristina). We arrived at the restaurant on time (7 pm) and they told us that they have not received our call (they told us that probably we phoned to another restaurant) and that the restaurant was fully booked....

Very nice restaurant with nice and calm atmosphere. Good for casual, business or romantic dinner. Food was very good quality, excellent taste and nicely raised. Good Scandinavian food with Lappish twist. Very professional. Good menu and wine list. Also service was very professional and friendly. Will for sure visit again when come to Rovaniemi. I can highly recommend.

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.
