When you have only a few reviews Google "estimates" how many stars you will have when you have more reviews based on their data set for similar businesses...

 

Their average is not a standard math average but what is called a Bayesian Average. Once you get more reviews, they will calculate your rating using standard averages.. Almost all businesses with ony 5 reviews are handled this way and once you get to 10 or so reviews you will be fine.
