This is one of my most favourite restaurants EVER! The food is absolutely devine and caters to a range of tastes. Tapas of variying suzes and prices allows you to try a variety of foods. The beer menu is EXTENSIVE. To top it off the service is second to none.

A great night was had by us at the Gothenburg, food looked amazing, tasted delicious, and was great value for money. The waitress was amazing, everything a waitress should be. Knowledgeable about the food, could offer good advice with what we should order and did everything with style. I loved the place and will be back as soon as possible.

This was the 3rd time I have eaten here this year and Gothenburg never fails to impress! The service is faultless and the food is simply delicious! Presented well and everything was cooked to perfection! They also have a extensive list of local wine and beer. Will be back for a 4th time for sure!

The range of tapas was wonderful. The food was fresh, beautifully presented and the service was excellent. Also, there was a huge choice of craft beers. We will definitely be back when we next visit Hamilton.

Many restaurants offer variations on the same fare but Gothenburg is different. They offer a fascinating and tasty variety of tapa style portions accompanied by an unbelievable array of mainly Belgian beers. The crispy gnocchi with dates, walnuts and feta made a delicious starter followed by a stunning Duck confit and ginger and chili prawns. We then ended with a... More

Went for lunch at this clean, friendly and inspiring restaurant. Greeted enthusiastically by the staff who knew the menu really well and were able to offer suggestions and explain the food to actually make your mouth water. Great choice of wine, beer, cocktails and soft drinks. Food was cooked to perfection at a fair price.

This restaurant had good reviews combined with the good Belgian beer selection, this was the obvious choice for us and we were not disappointed. The food was very nice with a few interesting choices - not your usual. Definitively would recommend this place.
