Great restaurant for lunch. Serves tapas to share. We had pork belly, gnocchi and calamari which was enough for 2 people (pork belly portion was extra large). Every dish was amazing, my favourite gnocchi, pan fried and full of flavour. Lovely ambience too.

Book in advance as it can be busy. One of the few places in the Tron where a nice view of the Waikato River. Service is very fast and friendly. The food is stunning and comes quite quickly. Do not order too much as it...is deceptively fulling. Great place for kids to expand their palate beyond fries- which they do have and are very nice.More

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.More

We visited Gothenberg Restaurant for lunch following a family member's medical appointment, and it was a great remedy. The location on the river bank, and view of the autumnal surroundings was magic. We had a booking, at table in a glass corner Some of our...group had been there before, but this was the first time for us. The menu and the tapas style meal was outstanding! Additionally, we had the attention of the lovely lady from Milan in Italy to serve us. Highly recommend, and we will definitely return!More

Mother’s Day lunch at Gothenburg was very enjoyable. The food was great, both plentiful and delicious. The service was excellent as well.

The view of the surroundings is gorgeous and the meal was outstanding! We had seen the review in Cuisine magazine and were so glad we added it to our Hamilton visit. We will definitely return!

This is the third time we've visited, with people coming from Auckland and Tauranga as a middle meeting place. The food is excellent, very friendly service and the location is lovely with the large trees and being so close to the river. The decor is...sophisticated but not pretentious. It's usually very busy at weekends so if you're looking for quiet it may not be your pick but it's a great atmosphere if you like to feel like you're somewhere fun. The pork belly and arancini are highly recommended! It's not cheap, but wouldn't expect that for such an excellent place. Highly recommend.More

I think the first thing that you notice when you walk into the restaurant is the atmosphere and decor, the second is the excellent staff and last but not least by any stretch is the beautiful food and it's presentation. I am vegetarian and I...was wonderfully impressed by the selection of vegetarian food. My family members and friend being carnivores were equally impressed by their selection. Very well recommended.More

We love coming here. Never a low point, exceptional food and service. The only place I would recommend 100%. I can never get enough of their beautiful dishes and dumplings 🥟.

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
