Monte Rosa is a great find in Rovaniemi. First, the food was delicious. I had the crab soup to start and it did not disappoint, nor did the steak that followed. Everything was fresh and cooked to perfection. The waitstaff were prompt, courteous, and friendly. They added to a great experience. The restaurant is a nice place for a romantic... More

This was our first full lunch here. Meat, fish, great soup. The deer and the soups highly recommend. The fish not so much. We got also woundeful desert. Free parking and wifi. It is not cheap - 100Euro for 2 ppl having the two of the lunch menu. Recommended!

We had a very interesting meal in this nice restaurant, three small hamburgers, one moose, one reindeer and one beef. Nice to be able to compare such different meats. The service was also very good.

The restaurant has a fantastic atmosphere. The food is good but maybe a little overpriced. Still worth a visit.

We stayed here one evening. The local was very cosy, elegant and comfortable. The staff was very nice, fluent speakers of english and of a little bit of italian. The food was very good,tasty and high quality. Maybe a little bit expensive.

It's gourmet place, so you know the prices. But you won't regret. Try any reindeer course or the summer menu.

We were presented with their International Choiced Wine list that match with their menu . The staff are knowledgeable with the food service, attentive to details courteous... More

Monte Rosa is the hotel restaurant of the City Hotel. The quality of the food is outstanding, and the service is both friendly and informative, by a waiter who is clearly - and justifiably - proud of the food that he brings to your table.

Very nice ambiance and very good quality of food. I took the Traditional Lappish sauteed reindeer. I surely recommend this dish...
