it is always nice to dine at the Gouverneur, but the price quality formula is a little off, high prices for quite ordinary food, well prepared, but without any fantasy presented.. the portions are ok, the wine is outrageously expensive, nice place to go and see the ships go by, but a little more taste and variation in the menu that hasn't changed for a long time, would be appreciated.

We stopped here for lunch. It's one of the highly recommended restaurants in Punda. Maybe so for dinner. When we entered the restaurant, we were the only people there. So why was the service so slow? Our waitperson acted as though she had better things to do. The view from the balcony is awesome, as advertised, the food is good not great

We had a very good lunch and great service, the server overheard our conversation about my son's birthday and he brought him a surprised dessert with sparkler on it. The little things like this makes the difference in average or great service.

The quality of the food was very good and overall a nice place to visit.

Party of 8 for dinner with no reservation, no problem. Must try Cuban garlic soup and any drink on the menu. If feeling lucky try the bartenders choice. A three year agreed Columbian rum was amazing post entree.
The wait staff was hysterical and professional. A great view of the harbor or a cool garden patio.
