I live locally but it's taken me a while to get around to visiting Gothenburg. That was a mistake. The atmosphere is great - busy but not overpowering. The service is very good - lots of advice and very knowledgable waiters & waitresses. Great choices of wines and beers. Great view of the river. Indoor or outdoor dining. And the... More

Came here with my husband and Parents-in-law, was a beautiful evening, with food able to be catered to the GF and DF amongst us - with no loss of taste or style. The food was excellent, however the service was phenomenal - I can see why locals recommend this place to visitors.

The atmosphere and staff were nice, the food is visually pretty but tastes plain just very salty. Would not recommend.

We had a family lunch and enjoyed it very much. The lady who served us was very kind and the staff were friendly. The food was excellent. However, I was a little bit disappointed in the serving size. Having looked at the pricing I thought the tapas would be a larger size. Regardless, it was delicious and I'm thankful for... More

I had heard great things about Gothenburg but it surpassed my expectations. 10 of us chose a small plate each and they did enough of each order for 10. So we had such a wonderful diverse table of food. Everything was superb. The desserts were wonderful just to top it of. The staff were truely extraordinary. Perfection . 100%

We decided to have a small meal here having been at a Christmas function of drinks and nibbles in the ANZ Building. We went downstairs to Gothenburg and we were greeted by one of the wait staff who recognised us from upstairs. A great start! They found room for the two of us on a very busy night, and suggested...

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.
