We arrived on Friday about 1 for lunch. The restaurant was not busy, but was moderately occupied. We asked to sit outside and we seated timely. The drink order was taken, but then things became a little slow. 20 minutes later we were able to order, and we ordered soup and sandwiches. About an hour later our food arrived. It... More

I love the location, unfortunately they don't have any fresh juices. I tried the salad, it came fast but was a bit small. But the location is one of the best there!

The most important part of a restaurant is still the food served. This part was really disappointing. The atmosphere, the location and the service were very good. If you plan to go to the Gouveneur, I would advise to 1) book a table 2) choice the early seating at 6pm 3) don't expect it to be too romantic Food: We... More

The wait staff is almost too good to be true. Omnipresent but not obsequious. Extremely well-trained! The ambiance throughout the building, but especially in the "secret garden", is absolutely delightful; the meals, individually prepared, delicious. We enjoyed our lunchtime experience so much that we made a point of going back a couple of days later for a drink during happy... More

The balcony has a wonderful view of the city and harbor entrance. The food is impeccable- I had the Cuban sandwich and my wife had the Nicoise Salad. Both exceeded our expectations. Service was friendly, timely and unobtrusive which is exactly what you want.

Garden in back with comfortable seating; veranda seating in front with view of Punda. Overall, we enjoyed our dinner experience here. I wish they had higher end wines, especially by the glass, as we don't like the same kinds and we do like better wines, which theirs were not. I was thrilled to see they had a Vegetarian entree: However,... More
