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.

English breakfast was served without any drinks. Beans were cold etc. Could be much better. Cake was ok but nothing special to tell to your grandchildren.

Nice place to visit even with your little ones. They have a little play area as well as high chairs. Cakes are over the moon delicious! Seems like a busy place, especially during the lunch time. At one time I felt like waitressing didn’t have...time for us (thats why leaving 4 stars), but second time visiting we had amazing waitress Kadri who was kind, fast and detail oriented. Thank you!More

Ordered a pulled pork burger with fries. Both fries and dip sauce were pretty good and tasty. The burger was completely butchered though - pulled pork was undercooked and not pulled apart properly. The meat was bland, dry and the burger itself almost stone cold!...Severely disappointed, but an extra point goes for the fries.More

Gustav has a nice selection of pastries, but some food is appalling. Second time I stumbled upon zander soup. I love fish and soups (not tomato soups though). I was checking if it’s a ‘clear soup’. It was and I ordered. It came with sour...cucumbers!!! And whole barley grains! It was sour. I would call it rather some rassolnik or ‘farmer’s soup’ like locals call the soups where they throw in whatever they find (like barley grain or some pickles if you don’t have any fresh to take), like 100 years ago when you either ate what you had or starved. Well, times have changed.. Keep away from the fish soup and beware of these terrible Russian kitchen peculiarities.More

I came here for lunch. I had the lamb burger. The burger smelled really good. The fries and dipping sauce tasted really good. The burger was pretty good, but there was a lot going on flavor-wise with all the toppings, I think it might have...been a bit better with less. It was also a bit expensive compared to other good burgers in Tartu. Service was very fast and good. I may come back to try different dishes but I probably won't have another burger here. There menu online was not up to date. I like to look online at the menu before going because I take a long time to decide. The menu was very different than what was posted online. I could tell the menu was out of date because they still had the weekly specials from the first week of November posted; I was there in April. I didn't expected half the menu to be different though. None of my top three choices were still on the menu.More

We only ate burges here and they were great. All the cakes and pastries on the counter looked amazing. Maybe next time we try also those. Burgers didn't leave any room for a dessert!

If you eat you can be served, if not you have to get up and go to the counter for your drink. Nice cakes and interior, tables a bit small.

The food (and cakes!) is very tasty in Gustav and not that expensive, especially if you order from the quick list. The only minus is that the place is often crowded during lunchtime, therefore the food you want might be over, and you need to...wait longer for other options, which are more expensive.More
