Mushroom ravioli, lamb rump, skagen, pumpkin salad, lemon meringue and chocolate “mess” to finish off were all excellent. Friendly staff,...More

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

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.
