Gothenburg is off the main drag of Victoria St and not that well sign posted but it is worth searching out. It opens from 9am and we were the first there, taking a seat near the floor-to-ceiling windows with glimpses of river through the trees....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.
