The food is always great, the wine list is top notch and the atmosphere and staff are always vibrant. Views of the river are a plus not many restaurants have that.

I've tried a lot of places in Hamilton but Gothenburg is my go-to whenever I want the best. There are places that are much more expensive but not as good so just go to Gothenburg. Book early to make sure you get a table.

A lovely setting, imaginative and delicious cuisine and good service. Its difficult to pick a favourite as platters were shared. The french cheese with honey was exceptional and the beautifully served dessert was sublime. A daunting "Germanic" name for such a fine restaurant

I thought their response was witty and well thought out. They provided evidence dismissing your wife's claims that the chilli burnt her mouth. I myself have eaten the dish as well as many of my friends and we not once have... More

Hi there! You are most welcome to come in for a coffee any time. During the day time our bar area operates a little like a café, we have a cabinet full of goodies and the espresso machine is of course humming away all day... 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.
