Really liked the little fruit with muesli parfeits for breakfast you didn't have them.this time. All staff are friendly & welcoming
Your piano bar was the perfect venue our small birthday celebration. Fabulous service, great food, and we loved having our family pianist providing the music on your beautiful grand piano.
The only thing I would suggest is that the milk was served in milk jugs not jars.
Great meals and fast service. The staff were attentive and friendly.
It was a Tuesday evening, so pretty quiet; the spacious atmosphere is enhanced by having more diners. The occasion was a family birthday and knowing this the staff laid on a complimentary dessert sampler for the birthday girl. Well thought out menu, plated and presented beautifully. The chicken croquettes a visual and taste treat, the aged beef a highlight, the bread and butter pudding dessert a successful interpretation of an old classic was a table favourite.
Governor’s is a beautiful restaurant with high quality food and service, however I feel some dinner guests Could do well to take greater pride in their personal appearance. Dining attire is not cafe or shopping attire.
Enjoyed the food and the helpfulness of the staff.
A lovely dinner and our water was fantastic
Great service/ atmosphere. The only thing lacking I felt was the menu. Not much choice. I
I felt menu was limited. For mains 6 choices 2 were burgers. Not my type of food at all and certainly not for fine dining. The service was good. We enjoyed our evening but I just felt the food choices let the other qualities down
A delightful experience.
Good food and service.
Lovely decor and atmosphere. We were very happy with the meal. Good veges, generous eye fillet and lamb, cooked perfectly.
Lovely meal and atmosphere very friendly staff
Tuatahi. I find the name of your restaurant offensive and would encourage your owners to change it.
We had a great time good was outstanding
We took our 2 grandchildren for a meal The food was lovely and both our grandson and my wife are gluten free their food was wonderful We really enjoyed our meal and so great to be out and about post level 3 covid Would recommend this restaurant the steak was the best and the lamb was delicious
Main issue was our original waitress we only saw twice and she was not very attentive to our needs. Walked past our table a few times and did not notice or ignored empty glasses and plates. I believe there is currently meant to be one wait person for a table but we had 4 different staff members come to our table.
Thoroughly enjoyed the steak.
We ordered eggs Benedict with a special order on the eggs and a side of hollandaise sauce. The eggs were not done to how we asked and the side of hollandaise was poured over the wrong plate. Other than that, it took ages to get a seat as tables were not being cleared fast enough. We had a lovely waitress.
We had breakfast and dinner at Governors and both meals were excellent.
The service was impeccable and our waitress was super friendly and engaging. The food was amazing, especially loved the chicken, bacon and mushroom pie. Thank you
I was really surprised of how delicious the food (fish and meat) was. The waiting time was short.
Fabulous meal and breakfast. Service was excellent. Will definitely be returning.
