“Great food and Wonderful Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2013

We originally tried this restaurant becasue we had been given a voucher last year, we have since been back several times when we are childless as I wouldn't take my young children there. Delicious food, love the Tapas menu. Service is always great, the staff know the meal menu and beer list very well and are very helpful.

“One of the best restaurants in Hamilton.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2013 via mobile

Can't say enough how fantastic this place is.

We would definately recommend this place, great value for money, the portions are just right, the food itself is so good!

The service was outstanding, the staff are friendly and helpful and gave advice about each dish.

A cool feature of their menu is they have a recommended drink to compliment the dish is listed.

Overall it was an outstanding restaurant. Well done!!

“yummy food, nice location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2013

The Gothenburg is a very nice restaurant with a menu that certainly is different from other menues. They offer tappas and different sandwiches, good beer and, of course, beverages such as coke, etc.

The restaurant is very clean and the food was extraordinarily delicious. Must be an awesome chef cook standing there in that kitchen!

The waiter was very fast and nice as well.

I definitely can recommend the Gothenburg which in my mind belongs to the really good restaurants in Hamilton!
