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.

This was my favorite place I have visited on my vacation. The flavor in every dish was spectacular. The waitress explained everything to fine detail. My favorite dish was the lamb.

Went for a lunch after flight and the restaurant was a pleasent surprise. Salad table with asiatic theme was good. As main i had hash (fried potatoes and sausage). Liked non traditional version of Gustavs a lot and selfmade choclate cookies made me take another...one even i usually skip the dessert. looking forward to come for a dinner.More

Excellent food and friendly staff. I had one risotto dish and one lamb entrecôte. Both were delicious. Staff is more than happy to serve you excellent bread and butter. A must visit!

This place could be in any big city. The restaurant is youthful and stylish and the music is great. The food is the best you can get in Rovaniemi. Wines and cocktails are also superior.

We were recommended Gustav's by our waitress from Restaurant Nili and we were lucky enough to grab a reservation. We did not know what to expect from the food but were honestly blown away by every dish we ordered. We recommended sharing the food tapas...style so you can try more of the menu. We were especially keen on the ginger and blueberry cocktails and all of the desserts. The quality of the food found at Gustav's for the very decent price should be reason alone to visit this establishment.More

Visited here with kids saturday afternoon and had a good visit. Restaurant is nice interior, menu is priced reasonably, food is tasteful and staff is well more friendly than finnish "normal". For kids it was possible to have half dishes from maincourselist.

We had lunch at this cozy bar. The restaurant had only one dish - salmon with cheese on the side. To get in you go to the cashier who will then give you a number. As soon as you get a table you go to...the other side of the bar where you will be treated with a buffet of salads. We enjoyed the excellent pasta salad and kept going back for more. The price was good.More

Very good lunch. Small portion, but the salad table makes it bigger. Tasty coffee included the lunch price.

Food was excellent, very good tastes. Service also very good. However, the atmosphere is terribly loud and crowdy. Not a chance to have a conversation with your dinner mates, as the music kept turning louder and louder as the evening went on. Sorry, not visiting...again.More

Gustav has quality food and nice surrounding but the service is consistently (lunch, dinner, drinks) brusque. The waiters act in an arrogant manner leaving the customer confused and unappreciated.

The food was very good - we shared the foie gras and then had the salmon and tartare. They recommend you take both a starter and a main. I found that to be too much for me, personally. The place was a bit loud and...crowded.More

We came here for our final night in Rovaniemi and it more than met our expectations. The service was friendly and very efficient, the food all delicious and the ambience really nice. We had four plates to share between two of us, which was just...about right – portions aren't very big, but all superbly cooked. The blood orange and pine nut risotto was a particular highlight, along with the rye bread creme brulee for dessert. A really lovely place – very surprised it isn't higher ranked on Tripadvisor. Surely one of the top dinner spots in Rovaniemi!More

Fantastic culinaric experience! We read the positive reviews about this restaurant online and wanted to give it a try since our Hotel was very close. From the friendly staff, to the cozy chic interior and the richness and freshness of the food, our expectations were...not only met but surpassed :) the menu is short but creatively presented with a short story accompanying each dish and the plates come beautifully arranged. The size of each dish is smaller than the normal portions so that you can order and try several dishes (absolutely recommended!:)). A must try when in Rovaniemi!More

Excellent food and friendly staff. We didn’t have a booking but happened to share a taxi with a couple who had a booking. They had heard great things so we decided to give it a ago. They also had a lovely cocktail menu. We had...the char, mushroom risotto and venison dishes. The venison was cooked to perfection. The char was also cooked well and presented beautifully. The risotto was the highlight though. So creamy and cooked really well. The portions are small if looking at mains. They are tapas size but the waitress did tell us and recommend how many to get depending on how hungry we were.More
