We had a FIrst Table - early booking but were treated as if paying full price. Spent money saved on drinks - great wine list! Friendly staff & fine dining quality meals.

We had an outstanding evening with our friends. They had not been to Governers before and they loved it. The food was exceptional as usual. We had the $69.00 5 course meal which was a taste of a variety of dishes. The beef, pork, fish, duck egg, and kiwifruit dessert all outstanding flavours. The only suggestion: ask how people prefer their beef.

We really enjoyed our dinner. The staff was very good. My stake was very sinews and they offered me a whole new meal but I chose the stake again and this time it was delicious. We will def come again next time we are in New Plymouth.

It was my daughters birthday and she has always wanted to dine here since my husband and I went a while back. Both my girls were dying to have the chocolate sphere we had when we came but unfortunately the menu has changed. Visually the restaurant is stunning. I love the lighting. The service was fantastic. My husband and I got the 4 course meal - I had the lamb and he had the aged beef both were perfectly cooked. However, I was not hugely fussed with the other items on my plate - but did enjoy the sauces. The birthday girl got the Fish and Chips and was advertised with Peas and Tartare Sauce but just came with Tomato Sauce and Salad. My other daughter got the burger which she loved. All up it was an ok meal - not as fantastic as previous times we have been. Think will wait till next menu change before returning again,

Two meals were ordered at our table tonight. The vegetarian meal was just gorgeous and probably the best meal Ive ever had dining out! The steak meal was a little disappointing as there wasn’t much on the plate, a larger potato stack would have made a big difference, the flavours were there though. The atmosphere was great with good music, comfort and lighting. Service was great too! We will definitely be back for the vegetarian meal again <3

The portions are far too small for normal consumption. The food are really good, but waiter never asked how I want my steak and assumed it's medium well. The lamb was really good, but came in scallops size portion and my husband had to order extra fries after.
