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.

We visited Gothenburg twice during a 3 day stay in Hamilton. The first time, we went for the $60/person chef's selection. We had to tell them to stop bringing food as we couldn't handle any more. The second time, we ordered off the menu. The...More
