Lovely food, good service
We enjoyed our meal very much at Governors and recommend the restaurant without hesitation.
Great meal and service
My husband and I were celebrating my birthday with a dinner here and were having a night out alone without our 15 month old for the first time in a long time. The food and drinks were great, but unfortunately the service wasn't the best to start, we arrived just before 5.30pm for our 5.30pm reservation and were seated at our table with menus. Our orders including drink orders were not taken for approx 20 mins, although the orders of tables around us, who arrived after us were taken. We then received our bread starters just after 6, but still hadn't received drinks so I had to follow up to see how far away they were. Once the food and drinks finally arrived they were delicious and we couldn't fault these, and the service did improve after I followed up on our drinks, but by then we were already a bit disappointed.
Outstanding food and service.
Our favourite place to dine out as a family. Love the service and food. Great atmosphere.
the steak was the best we have had and the lamb also was cooked to perfection and was delicious. We recommend both dishes. Service from Lucky was superb!
Delicious food, pleasant service and a nice atmosphere. Was a lunchtime services so was maybe a little low key and unhurried, but comfortable seats.
Was a good venue for a family get together with various ages.
The food is the worst I’ve tasted. All vegetables are served with picked cucumbers, carrots etc Servings are very small. Overall quality of food is similar to a takeaway shop instead of a top hotel in New Plymouth. Also the waitress insisted on us ordering entree and did not listen to what we wanted. Consequently we couldn’t leave the restaurant fast enough and we didn’t bother ordering any dessert
Enjoyed the lunch - in walking distance to the restaurant - will be returning in the near future to repeat the experience. Thank you
First table with 50% off the meal so definitely value for money. Food was delicious & excellent service
My husband and I dined at Governors while holidaying in New Plymouth. While there we were treated to a first class meal and impeccable service from very attentive staff. When a large party arrived, the staff noticed the increase in the noise level and moved us to a quieter table. My husband was also spoilt by a complimentary dessert in honour of his Birthday. We couldn't fault the meal or service and would definitely return to dine here again.
Best fish we have eaten in NZ
Nice food although it was cold. Thought it too expensive for what you get. Wine is far too dear also.
I already submitted a glowing feedback report earlier today. I hope you received it. Elayne
Visually the meal can not be faulted. Tasted great. Unfortunately my daughter became sick during our dinning experience but we will be back.
We had a delicious meal with outstanding service from Liza - she really was great!! Will definitely be back again!
I really enjoyed the flavors of the food but was not impressed with the piece of lamb belly flap dished up with my mains - the lamb.
Food and service was good
Had a very enjoyable evening with a group of friends. Service was great and the food delicious.
Staff were wonderful. They knew the menu and drinks. Service was great. Steak was awesome with lots of yummy flavours happening on my plate. Merry Christmas
Thank you to the Food and Beverage team of Sarah and Luke - the 50th Wedding Anniversary lunch for our parents went so well, we all enjoyed the experience!
Service is excellent and food is so delicious!!
