Interest interesting mix of flavours served as tapas, food was excellent but my one reservation was that the portions seems small, also , could do with more staff.

No matter what you order the food is excellent. A very good range of beers both local & from overseas. Also a great wine list. The deserts are excellent to the point you don't want to give the plate back.

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.
