“Great food and service was ok in subsequent visit”
Reviewed May 27, 2014

We had breakfast in our first visit to the Gouverneur, and although the food was ok, service was slow - if we hadn't returned the review would be a 3 star.
We wanted to try the dinner menu, so we went back. We had a much better experience: the food was great, service was better than breakfast.
Considering we had some hit and misses in other places in Curacao, so we decided to go back for dinner again and the quality of food and service was consistent.

A diverse menu with a great atmosphere. The balcony was defiantly the way to go! The dish with chicken, prunes and capers was so different, but excellent. Also the potato covered in cheese..yummy!!!! So glad we ant there.

Finally we could´nt eat at the restaurant. they where trying to give us the worst table even thoug there were plenty of space. Theynever give the menú. Why they have a restaurant if they dont want to serve the customers.

“Great experience.”
Reviewed May 14, 2014

Ate outside on the rooftop and watched the city and bridge light up. The banana soup was awesome and the mussel appetizer too! All the grilled food tho had a weird fake BBQ taste to it. They cook on an open kettle grill but I'm not sure if they use liquid BBQ flavoring or what. I wouldn't order the grilled food again but would define toy go back and try a local dish. The setting was awesome!
