Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Came here on a nice, sunny day. I had one of their local beers and a sandwich. The beer was fine, the sandwich was not bad but tasted underwhelming. The location is an undeniable gem and the cafe & its surroundings are charming, but the...place is very pricey even for Joensuu. The beer and sandwich were overpriced for what they were and it's a problem that plagues the whole menu. The portions are not big enough or the dishes special enough to overcome this. Apart from this, it's a nice place to hang out.More

Rento is something special. It is very small "Cafe" next to Pielisjoki river. Staff is extremely nice and they offer nice ice creams, smoothies and coffee. It is open during the summer time. Go and check why!

Rented Rainbow Oasis 430 kayak from Rento cafe for some free hours. Equipments were in great shape and owner arrived early morning outside the regular opening hours. Tested first river Pielinen and then went down to lake and its near by islands. Kayak was easy...and stable to paddle in both environments. Beautiful views and service!More

Cafe Rento is a cosy little outdoor cafe on the side of the river Pielisjoki. They are selling the best ice cream in town and also some smoothies and sandwiches. You can also rent kayaks from this cafe.

Rento is THE place to go in Joensuu during a sunny day. It's a cool and relaxed environment by the river on a grass field. They serve fresh smoothies, grilled sandwiches, organic coffee and ice cream from a local farm not far away. Very friendly...staff. You can also rent kayaks and go paddling on Pielisjoki river straight from the cafe!More
