Great food. Strange that there were not many customers. We were 2 of approx. 15 people that dined there the entire evening. Service was good, but not consistent.

What an amazing, romantic experience. The staff are welcoming and the environment is relaxing, perfect for having an enjoyable dinner with your loved one or even work mates. My partner and I went to this gorgeous what seems to be historic mesmerising building with candles and flowers on every table.

We started offf with cooked to perfection grilled calamari. We should of ordered one each! (HIGHLY reccomended)

My partner had juicy kangaroo that was cooked to his liking medium rare that tasted exceptional.

If you like mouth watering, butter like pork belly that melts in your mouth and leaves you wanting more. You need to taste their pork belly. I didn't want it to end!

Overall was a amazing restaurant, would definitely go back there again. Food was delicious and place was beautiful.

An excellent fine dining restaurant. The venue is fantastic, next to Australian museum. Food is finely done and delicious. The succulent pork belly is a must. Service is friendly and fabulous. What else can you ask for..

We had a wonderful experience at The Governors Table. The staff were very welcoming and polite. The restaurant had a really nice atmosphere, dimly lit but with beautiful candles on every table. We ended up ordering the paella croquettes for entree which were arancini balls but with a Spanish twist. For mains we had the kangaroo, crispy skin baby chicken and gnocchi. All the dishes were presented beautifully and the flavours were fantastic. In particular, the gnocchi was soft, fluffy and the mushrooms complimented the dish so well.

Lovely ambiance and beautiful building! Food was delicious, particularly the Gnocchi. The calamari was good but anyone who doesn't like fresh pan seared calamari will be put off as it's not the battered, deep fried kind. The Scottish Waitress was very charming and the bar staff were lovely.

My new favourite restaurant in Sydney - such a lovely restaurant setting and a great level of ambience on a Thursday night. Highly recommend, and desserts were the highlight (as they should be)!

The espresso martinis were amazing, starters were great (ribs and paella croquettes) and my partner had steak for the main which was good. I had the pork belly and it didn't deliver the standard I was hoping for. There was no crackling, instead there was a sad pork crackling chip laid on the side. Nice atmosphere in the restaurant. Also had the chat potatoes which was lovely.
