Great food, friendly waitresses

During my summer in Daugavpils, I ate at Gubernators many times with my friends. The food was very good. The waitresses were very helpful and friendly. They stay open fairly late compared to most restaurants in the area. Hopefully, I will return there one day.

Huge choice of meals considering the remoteness of the restaurant. Not sure why one half of the menu is written in French... Food was very tasty and staff are polite and attentive. Recommended joint for the average westerner with a sensitive stomach.

The waitresses seem to be wearing the shortest skirts possible which looks very unprofessional. Not sure why this is? The atmosphere and the olde worlde latvian history is interesting and it's quite quirky. The food itself is quite overpriced especially as all the extras come seperately ie potatoes rice etc soups are lovely but everything else you can find better... More

The place is charming, decorated with all possible old things. The menu is very very large and there are many interesting local delicacies. There is also nice wines available by glasses. The prices are really affordable and the staff is very friendly.

If you are looking for a meat and beer pub then this should be your first port of call in Daugavpils. A great basement pub with interesting decor - a variety of pictures and knickknacks adorn the walls and provide a good reason to explore the place. Food is simple but effective - a huge slab of quality cooked pork... More

Couple hours ago we were there. First of all it seemed a nice place to eat, but when we looked thru the menu, we were surprised that the prices are so high and for the food additives (exc. rice, vegetables) have to pay additional. We ordered the food in hope that the food will be tasty and the price will... More

This restaurant is good for having some beer and chatting with friends, but for enjoyable food I would try another place. Menu is promising, but what we got was bland-tasting, very fat dishes (baked vegetables literally soaked with cooking oil) made of cheap ingredients. I don't have problems with some extra lard in food, but then it has to taste... More

So, we also went there because both our hotel reception and tourist information suggested it (or maybe it's the only place in city center...). The first impression was ok and although the staff tried to be helpful, there was a quite big language problem - first waitress didn't speak any English at all, the second waitress understood, but could not...
