Our first time at Gothenburg and definitely not our last. Really lovely tapas, served by lovely and friendly staff. The highlight would have to be the delicious lemon meringue dessert! ;)

A beautiful location with a very wide range of tapas. I was worried it would be all spicy and Mexican- not at all, it was very varied, and not particularly expensive.

We can never fault the food or the service at Gothenburg. We feel it is great value and tasty as well.

Fantastic as always! We had friends visiting and this was a 'must do' while they were here. Delicious food, lovely staff, relaxed feel... just what we wanted :) Definitely recommend the beef tataki... we always get it (normally multiple plates!) and we're never disappointed!

A delightful range of dishes. Attentive service. The style of tapas was well worth it, especially the ravioli, beef tataki, skagen rora, lamb rump and dumplings all went down a treat.

First time back since they moved location to the new river bank building. It's very swish and more corporate than indie. Just as before the service smart and friendly, the vibe just right, an expanding selection of interesting ales, and great food. My all time...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.
