Friendly service and a great selection of tapas. If the weather is good get a table outside and enjoy the view of the Waikato river.

Every time I have dined at Gothenburg the food, service and overall experience has been outstanding. If anyone is looking for a recommendation for a good restaurant in Hamilton, Gothenburg is always top of my list. You cannot fault it.

Exquisite food; between the 2 of us we had the Kim chi dumplings, Calamari and the delicious Duck and goats cheese salad. Combined with a couple of glasses of Matawhero Rosè and the most gorgeous French Pinot Gris. This restaurant is one of the best

Fantastic food and service. Been many times and will always return. Best in Hamilton by far. The deck is a great place for a drink before dinner.

Best place to go for out. Been 3 times and enjoy it every time. The tapas are decent and ends up not too badly priced with a few people. The service is great too.

Gothenburg serves a great selection of tapas. We focus on having a relaxed atmosphere combined with excellent service. We have a beautiful view of Waikato River from our dining room and outdoor terrace, and are located just a minutes walk from the main street.
