It was soooo interesting to go to Gustav's especially when you are from Germany. The food is amazing. We did not expect that. The Schnitzels are delicious and the meat balls with the potatoe salad to die for. It was defenitely a nice place to eat although it is a little too Bavarian for our taste! Thanks for being taken...

Went for dinner with a large group -- they managed to serve everyone at same time which is always impressive. Highly recommend the German Potato Salad. Also bread pudding for dessert. I had the turkey so it was not a typical German entree but it was real turkey and very nicely prepared, not dry at all. I did not care... More

I have to start out by saying I'm not a big fan of German food, but that being said, Gustav's is definitely the German place in this part of Vancouver. They have a great selection of sausages and fondue, all the beer you could want and a friendly waitstaff to boot. It might not be my thing, but my friends... More

Visited with family in the Spring of 2016. It's just shy of perfection. Were a four and a half star review a possibility, it would be one I'd exercise here. Even the waiting area is inviting and comfortable. The food is portioned just perfectly. It's never over or under cooked. Its flavor is always better than you'd imagine. The appetizers... More

My wife and I made a reservation for 6:15 on a Friday evening. We arrived a little early, but were quickly seated. My wife got the lentil soup to start and she said it was excellent. She was disappointed when it was gone. She got the German cabbage rolls for her meal and really enjoyed it. I got the wiener... More
