Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Would usually put a 5 star rating but today a little disappointed. Went to lunch with a friend, we ordered 4 tapas, my friend is a vegetarian so we ordered two each but the tapas came out two at a time, would have preferred all 4 at the same time. Terrific service though and friendly staff. Oh and two of our dishes were way too salty, hopefully this is just a one off as we love this restaurant

After so many recommendation's we finally got to Gothenburg. I booked online and the only available time a week out on a Friday night was 5.15, speaks for itself! Suited us fine. On arrival we were greeted warmly and taken to our table overlooking the river, I imagine in summer this would be absolutely stunning. Our service was next level from start to finish. We were recommended dishes at our request. Let me tell you the whole menu is exceptional to the point we literally struggled to narrow it down. We chose 4 tapas to share, Arincini Balls, Beef Tataki, Pork Dumplings and the Crayfish rolls. Every single plate was divine. Dessert was Bombe Alaska, again mouth watering. I cannot say enough about this beautiful restaurant, if you are after a first class dining experience in simply gorgeous environment look no further than Gothenburg, I cannot wait to go back to try more of the menu.

Gothenburg is my favourite restaurant in Hamilton and due to Covid-19 restrictions we had been starved of their fabulous fare. With a wedding anniversary coming up we booked from their takeaway menu which featured a smaller selection from their usual menu. We asked for a "trust the chef"selection suitable for our occasion and were delighted with what we received which included two beautiful desserts. Ordering and payment was easy, pick up at the door was a breeze. Fried potatoes were cooling off a little but if you have a air fryer that fixes that. All in all we were more than happy with our dinner, so much better than the usual takeaway fare.

Star dishes of the night were definitely the pork belly and Bombe Alaska dessert. The food came out very slow, the dishes were all came out over about an hour, which is not great when the food is tapas and supposed to be shared altogether. The service staff noticed and offered free desserts to make up for this. We would return again given the quality of the food, and give the kitchen staff the benefit of the doubt that the slow food was an odd and unexpected occasion!

Food was good however the waiter would not allow us to order another drink until we had finished our current drink. Even though there was one sip left he still wouldn’t let us order another drink (And it was the first drink). Considering it was my birthday dinner and we were only there for dinner and planning to leave to go home I was really disappointed. I have dined here numerous times before and love Gothenburg. It was not a pleasant experience. I had friends also dine here on Friday night and had the same experience as my family being very strict on drinks. I’m all for being mindful with people over drinking but restricting your customers and making them finish the last drop is very over the top. Really disappointed

We'd been recommended to visit by the hotel we were staying at and this proved to be just perfect for us. They were really busy when we arrived, with us grabbing the last table by the bar which was a perfect location for us as we got to see all the delicious food items being taken out to the different tables. What a menu, whilst we knew with the tapas style that we'd get to taste a good selection, we'd have been happy to try just about everything on the menu. The beef tataki with some amazing flavours was our first choice and wow, it set an amazing standard for the next dishes to follow. The crayfish rolls were really tasty and I could easily have had them again. We also had the pork belly and the prawns which were both pretty good, but not quite at the heights of the first two dishes. The desert menu was really interesting and temptation lead to the chocolate option being picked which was sensational. I really enjoyed the beer options, with the staff more than happy to give tasters to help guide good selections, even sending another taster over to our table. I got to enjoy some truly unique beers. The staff were awesome, friendly and knowledgeable - a real credit to the restaurant. We'll certainly be back, with another visit planned for a birthday in October. Please make sure the crayfish and the beef tataki are still on the menu!

We went there for lunch and ordered $80 per person set menu. We heard a lot of good reviews about this restaurant before we went, so thought we’ll give it a try. The atmosphere is good, and service is ok. But not a fan of the food, we didn’t finish all the dishes, just paid the bills and left. The food either too salty or the dishes taste weird. We paid $260 for 3 people including drinks, and that’s not worth the money. I don’t mind pay more on good food, but I’m really disappointed about the food.

We had a prime table, right next to the window overlooking the Waikato River. Service was courteous and fast. We enjoyed a variety of tapas that were served at a perfect rate through the meal, all very tasty and presented beautifully. We would definitely eat here again.

Stunning modern day restaurant with an fresh busy atmosphere vibe. Located near the river with great outdoors and indoor seating this is defiantly the place to go on all your dinning occasions. Not much I couldn’t find wrong with Gothenburg. Great food, friendly hospitality and atmosphere to rival any top restaurant in NZ. We had high expectations and they were meet with ease. Will be defiantly going back again. The waiter we had (Isaac) was very polite and knowledgeable on the meals on the menu. This made the dining experience easy and comfortable.

My wife and I enjoyed four great dishes plus a drink each which came to $115. Special mention to the warm and spicy lamb salad. Closely followed by the harissa spiced crispy fried cauliflower and the confit duck agnolotti. The service was excellent, at both the front desk and table. We were really made to feel very welcome. We will certainly return.

Googled tapas in Hamilton and so glad we chose Gothenburg. An extensive selection of tapas - so hard to choose. Sandra, our server, was very helpful in helping us to choose and the tapas were divine - in taste and also beautifully presented. The potato puree and goats cheese ravioli, beef Tataki, ginger and chilli prawns, and the deconstructed apple pie were all beautiful. This restaurant/bar overlooks the Waikato River so a lovely outlook while you dine. Staff were friendly and welcoming and we were especially impressed by Sandra. We will be back.

This was our daughter's choice to celebrate her birthday and again Gothenburg fulfilled our requirement for a tasty lunch during Level 2 Covid restrictions. There was a great wine choice and there was great selection of tapas. We were tempted to choose the ones we have enjoyed so much in a previous visit. We chose different tapas this time and they were so delicious and full of contrasting flavours. I loved the cauliflower dish, my husband the lamb and all the other tapas were of fine fare.

We have visited this restaurant many times in the past, for lunch and the meals have been superb, We always commented to ourselves how good the quality has been. This time we went for dinner and what a disappointment it was. The calamari was chewy, the pork dumplings were stringy and watery. My wife's dessert of chocolate mousse was a small quennelle sitting on some biscuit crumbs with 3 small raspberries, which appeared to have been frozen, and a decorative flower overpriced at $16.50. Our other two choices were o.k. When paying our bill we apprised the receptionist of our disappointment with the meal, and the fact that we wouldn't return , however she did refund the dessert cost, and was most apologetic and said she would pass on our complaints to management.

We were really lucky to get a voucher for Christmas so we paid extra to try six dishes and had two nice cold beers. Only two of us but we were seated next to the window on a table for four so we had plenty of room for the dishes and great view of the river, We booked for 5.30 so that helped ensure we had a good table as we were told that it was going to be a busy night as they were just reopening first week in Jan. We ordered 6 dishes and 3 of these we really liked, the sticky lamb ribs (nice flavour but one rib was all fat), hand cut chips and Kung Pao chicken. The dishes we wouldnt order again were Ginger and chilli prawns (only a tiny bowl), deep fried cauli - love this dish normally but this version was a bit hard to eat (interesting flavour) and pork dumplings -realised we only like pan fried dumplings. It was a nice dinner and great to try dishes. My husband isnt normally into small plates, so it was important to have enough food and we could have ordered four dishes plus the charred greens. The flavours were good and left a nice taste in your mouth afterwards.
