We reserved a table for lunch and when we arrived we were immediately greeted by a friendly waitress that immediately located our reservation and led us to a nice window table with a view of the river. A friendly waiter soon followed, clearly informed us of the specials and took our drinks order. The drinks were delivered promptly. I had... More

Really enjoyed dining here. It has a lovely atmosphere, with beautiful views of the river and friendly staff. The menu has a pretty decent range of foods and flavours to cater to most taste buds. Our waitress forgot to put one of our orders into the kitchen so when we asked about it they realised the mistake and gave us... More

I visited this restaurant a while ago. I gave it a tough tying because I felt let down with the food considering the high rating. This time the food didn't let me down. It was good. The service was great and the setting and atmosphere was good.

My wife and I had several dishes split between us after a long day at the Waitomo and Ruakuri caves. We worked up an appetite and wanted something on the fancier side. The food was incredible and the view over the river was beautiful. We took a walk down the Riverwalk afterwards and enjoyed the cool breeze and sites. I... More

Once again we have visited Gothenburg while visiting Hamilton. We were fortunate enough to have the same table, overlooking the Waikato River, and have the same gorgeous Irish waitress. She really is an asset to the business. The different dishes we chose were all beautifully served and all delicious. The menu has a tapas style selection, and, in the company... More

I find this restaurant by good luck as i walking around the river. I stopped on a lovely sunny day and sat outside on the terrace with beautiful views of the Waikato River. I was lucky that there were several rowing teams on the river which added to the ambiance. The staff were incredibly helpful and suggested the dumplings and... More

The tapas are superb,a great selection with something for everyone. A great selection of wines and beers especially Belgian beers.

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.
