Great restaurant with friendly staff and well prepared food. Red wine by glass was very limited which was unfortunate The captains steak was perfectly cooked. Unfortunately it came out on a bed of rice rather than the veggies I requested. Other than that, the meals...were well presented and very well cooked. I would definitely go back.More

Ordered 3 different dishes: fish, chicken, beef. All were consistently good and tasty. Solid service. Good location in relation to the Tahko Spa Hotel.

We ate here with two teenagers and four adults. Kids ate plank steak and fries and liked it. Men ate liver, which was classic meal and very tasty. I ate fish. Fish was very good and mashed potatoes was delicious. However it was too little....Only one small piece of fish and mashed potatoes only like 150 g. We were exercising all day so I was even hungrier when we left this restaurant. I really had to eat again once we got back to our cottage. So don't eat fish when hungry. I am vegetarian, and was hoping to have vegetarian food, but only one choice. No good nowadays. Anyway, the service was polite and friendly. Still highly recommended.More

This is beautiful and nice place. Escargots were very good but liver was heavenly good, absolutely fantastic! One of the best I’ve ever had. Menu looks very good for non-vegetarians!

In the generally overprized Tahko-area, this restaurant was an excellent choice. We had vendace and liver for the adults as well as meatballs and trout for the kids. All portions were excellent!

It was nice to realize that also on Monday there was a lot of people having dinner even if it is not peak season. As always food and service both were perfect! My wife had fish and I chose pepper steak.

El Monte offered good quality food but also some disappointments. The restaurant was 1/4 full but we needed to wait 30 minutes for our starters. The esgargots lacked taste and the creme brulee should have been made in a wider cup instead of the narrow...one they used. The flavour was great but due to the narrow cup, you missed the crispy surface which is typical for the dish. The pepper steak, steak and sauteed reindeer worked well.More
