My wife and I visited on a Sunday evening. Since we did not have reservations we were not able to dine at a table facing the harbor, but the interior courtyard of the restaurant is beautiful and romantic in a way all its own. We found the waitstaff to be friendly an engaging, but we experienced numerous problems during our... More

We ate here with friends on the spur of the moment on a busy evening and they accommodated us with warmth and grace. The food was excellent, prices reasonable, and the service efficient and helpful. Since we didn't have reservations they started us on the bar patio (highly recommended for it's view in the evening) and moved us to a... More

The Gouverneur offers great banana soup from the chef. It is inspired by tastes from Indonesia and other former Dutch colonies. Sitting at the balcony gives a great look on the Emma bridge. Terrace in the back is beautifully decorated and gives an impression of the colonial era.

I took my family to that place and we weren't disappointed at all after a friend recommended this place to me. The staff was amazing and very welcoming. Sitting in the garden inside was just amazing. Very cosy, romantic and beautifully designed. The food was also wonderful from the serving part to the taste. I highly recommend this place if... More

We ate here a few times during our week long stay. The food and drinks were fabulous and the service was excellent. Make a reservation in advance because they fill up. We especially enjoyed the mixed grill (steak and chicken) BBQ, the brownie dessert and to drink the blue smurf!

We were lucky enough to have a nice table on the balcony in this restaurant looking out on the waterfront. The staff were very friendly (though sometimes it was difficult to get their attention). The food itself was good, though not quite at the level that we had expected of the restaurant (it had been recommended to us by friends).... More
