Went there for dinner and it was good that I was hungry but ordered only one dish, because portions are ample. Food was delicious, though on the heavy side but this was expected. I had something quite traditional – fried beef tongue with horseradish sauce, potatoes and sauerkraut. And washed all with their own dark beer (Gubernators). Excellent! Prices are... More

Very nice bar, with their own beer. The place is very interesting with lots of things from Soviet times to see. We didnt try the food but they offered us for free with our beers some potatoes for snack! We visited twice in our stay in the city.

Went there twice this summer, which means there are not too many restaurant options in Daugavpils and "Gubernators" is not bad. The interior of the place is very interesting, it's full of lovely old things. The menu is huge, the number of different dishes, especially meat, is astonishing, but it's rather difficult to find healthy options and the food is... More

Old-fashioned interior which looks dirty, impolite staff, fat and stodgy dishes. Do not recommend. Worst place to eat in Daugavpils

My partner, my dad and me had a meal there. We chose to seat in the second room - it's quieter. Ordered something big, no starters but huge meat to share with different sides, it was good, some would even say perfect. My partner and my dad had some local beer and enjoyed it. Service was good, nice girl very... More
