Tapas style food serving, but portions are large. Food is very delicious and service is excellent. Limited seating by the window which overlook the river so book in advance if you're interested.

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.
