Had very enjoyable evening with friends. Food was fantastic with Tapas menu. Was varied, tasty and affordable. Great atmosphere. Only downside was the acoustics and sometimes hard to hear conversation at end of the table.

Lovely place. Always busy when we dine there but staff are efficient so no dramas. Food is well presented and tasty, although on the expensive side. More fun in a group so you can sample widely from the menu. Cocktails have not been great.

Couldn't eat my food as it was too spicy and there was no indication of a salad being spicy... when i informed them of this they just said "you should have asked if it was spicy" and "no one else has ever had a problem."...More

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.
