“Consistency every time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2011

I have been frequenting Gothenburg since it opened over two years ago and have found the food and service consistently excellent.
The tapas are defiantly my pick in the food department with a delicious assortment of dishes. The tuna carpaccio is exquisite and would have to be my favourite.
The wine range is very good and the Spanish house red is superb drinking and great value for money.
The beer selection is second to none in the Waikato and constantly changing. I had a fairly limited beer pallet when I started going to Gothenburg but after some guidance from one of the owners Carl, I have managed to sample and enjoy an extensive range of beers from around the world and NZ (I am defiantly hooked).
With excellent service, great food and beverages at a price point that doesn't wreck the budget, it is hard to go past Gothenburg for a great night out in Ham.

“Excellent pizzas, great choice of beers.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2011

We arrived in Hamilton to see a Rugby World Cup game, so we immediately headed for the Fanzone. Gothenburg had some good reviews so we decided to eat there. I recommend the pizzas, my goats cheese one was very tasty. The beer list is long, but our waitress was sufficiently knowlegeable to guide our choice.

We went for lunch and each of the dishes we chose was outstanding in taste and presentation. The coffee at the end was great too. We will certainly be back again.
