Chance by this place while looking for a place to lunch. Ala Carte starts after 2pm so we went for the buffet. For Euro 10.90 per pax I think the price is affordable. Other than the baked potatoes I can't recognize the other dishes as they look too local for me to know them. The soup is very salty but... More

Came to the restaurant at 7pm and it took over an hour to have our main! The king crab soup was good but the Salmon was overcooked and too dry, potato pieces burnt but still served to customer! Even the sorbet dessert took over 20 mins to come. Unacceptable! The waiter and waitress are friendly and trying to fix the... More

This is a large but cosy restaurant with very pleasant and knowledgeable staff. The food is good, not much of a variation on the food in most other restaurants but good quality, tasty and comparatively prices (remembering that Finland is expensive). Wine by the glass was relatively cheap compared to the food. Over all a good choice.

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

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.
