Made reservations for a Thursday night on the Balcony 2 weeks prior. All was as expected. great table with a view and the food was excellent. There's a nice open air balcony for drinks before the seating. Happy hour 5-6. Highly recommend. Even when we were checking into our hotel they recommended we make reservations.

We ate dinner here on a lovely night overlooking the water. It has a nice location and has an interesting history. Our food was fine and our service was fine. The meat had to sent back for being seriously undercooked. But, the most serious problem was pricing. The menu stated in print that the prices were in the Netherlands Antillean... More

Had a great dinner with local friends at Gouverneur de Rouville. Amazing setting with views of the floating bridge and historical buildings across the water. The ambiance is very warm and welcoming and the wait staff is very professional and knowledgeable about the menu. I had the carpaccio and a rib eye steak; both were prepared perfectly and very tasty.... More

My husband and I ate at Gouverneur on the last night of our honeymoon, it was well worth the wait! We tried to go earlier in the week but did not have reservations, would definitely recommend making one if you plan on going. We sat in the back courtyard area which was a quaint, romantic setting. Very pretty! The selections... More

We arrived for our reservation a bit early and waited in the bar area that had an AMAZING happy hour (Daily from 5-6PM). The cocktails were crafted to perfection, and they were half the menu price! For our meal, we sat on the balcony overlooking the bay. Our server, Dani, was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable of the menu and had... More

My boyfriend took me here for my birthday dinner. The dinner was very good. We both had the Antillean braised beef and a bottle of white wine and the dessert. We enjoyed it all. The service was great too. If we went back there we'd likely sit in their courtyard/patio instead of on the balcony. Their courtyard/patio looked beautiful!

De Gouverneur has an excellent location along the waterfront on Otrabanca side, making the balcony-view tables the most sought-after. My husband and I arrived without a reservation early in the week and were seated at a pretty table in the garden. We enjoyed the Lobster Bisque (soup of the day), crispy shrimp appetizer followed by the Argentinian Rib Eye (green... More

I enjoyed my dinner. I had the mixed grill. The staff we interacted with was very professional and always carried a smile. I would recommend trying it. In the bar area the smoke from the green egg was noticeable as mentioned by other reviews. Placing a fan to redirect the smoke would be suggested. Our server was very nice and... More
