Had trouble understanding the waitress and had to keep asking her to repeat herself, but apart from that it was very nice meal and will return again

We had to ask to order our drinks after being seated. The lamb dish was not up to previous standard as far as flavour goes.

Lovely meal but had an issue with service that they sorted as best as they could. Definitely would eat there again as the food is awesome and they are so accommodating with kids too.

Quite disappointed that for such a nice place people were walking in in jandals. Food was good - could do with better lighting. Too expensive for what it is - definitely isn’t one of the upper market restaurants in town.

Our stay was very pleasant & the hospitality was perfect. We had lunch, dinner & breakfast & while the lunch & dinner were fantastic we did think breakfast was quite ordinary, there was no food in some of the serving holders & we felt that just hash browns or roast potatoes would be better than vegetables.

Love the atmosphere; enjoyed the live music. Both times I've dined my mains has been wonderful. Did not like the chocolate sphere I had for desert; found it to be not very sweet. Also it was not value for money ($18). Would definitely recommend Governors.

The meal we were there for yesturday was the spanish setting. We thought the food was a little bland, not much thought had gone into it. It sounded good on paper, we have eaten all around the world and thought it could do with inspiration. Ryan
