This place supposed to be one of the best in Vaasa but in fact the food was not at the expected level compare to the price. It costed me 100 € for a 3 courses menu and 2 glasses of wine , something needs to be improved their .... The food was ok but not fantastic for this price level... More

I tried the 7 course tasting menu, and got mine milkfree and my friend got a vegetarian version of it. I'm amazed by the fact that I could make it milkfree! They managed to surprise me with the food anyway, and came up with interesting yet tasteful combinations. Overall the food was delicious, but a few of them didn't really... More

Food was nice but expensive! Not to mention the wines... Staff was really nice and could serve us in the languages used in our family. That was a very nice surprise! A bit expensive. Just some small modifications and this coulkd be a wow! Very cosy and nice place

Gustav Wasa is without any doubt the best restaurant in Vaasa. I have been there with my customers and colleagues now three times in 2014 and we have always got what we have expected. Last time I was there with my customer on an ordinary week day, without any reservation. We were lucky to get a table. Again the meal... More

We had a small group of colleagues for a dinner at Gustav Wasa. I've never been there before, and it was a pleasant experience from the entrance forward. We had GW7 tasting menu with wine menu. It was from good to excellent, it was altogether nice experience. It's slightly pricey, but I recommend to have for the overall experience alone.

If you're looking for the best restaurant in the city, look no more. Recommendations are the different tasting menus. But bring your wallet..

By the time the 2nd meat course arrived I had had enough. We were unfortunately seated by the bar so I had to watch staff at work preparing drinks for other customers. The almost steady racket of beer bottles crashing into the glass bin directly behind my husband was not condusive to dining. Dirty plates, empty wine glasses and bread... More
