“Great food, super staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2013

We've had a number of excellent visits to Gothenburg. The coffee is always great, and the staff are very helpful and competent. I've tried a few tapas, they arrive quickly with beautiful presentation, and fantastic flavours and textures. A favourite was the avocado panna cotta. Will definitely visit this place again when we're in Hamilton next.

Avocado season is too short. We love that dish!

Super nice! Great food, probably one of the best places in Hamilton. The chocolate mousse withbacon(!) was reallly cool. They have a lot of different beers from Europe and the staff was friendly.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2013

We'd been travelling around for a week on the north island eating our way through many good restaurants when we found this place. The service was fast and professional and we instantly felt right at home. We tried a few tapas to get a feel for the style of the kitchen. The presentations were very nice and the food was excellent! Daring without being pretentious with good feeling for seasoning and pairing. Very good beer list, many from Belgium and good wine list. Worth a detour!

“Not a bad place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2013 via mobile

Went on a very busy night. Waiter was extremely helpful and ensured our orders were taken before the big groups. Atmosphere was bubbling with a loud table next to us, which was no fault of the restauraunts. Beer choices are excellent, wine list includes many popular Nz wines. We had tapas to start and a main each. Though not huge the meals were tasty. We would recommend.

“A little gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013

We really enjoyed this place during our visit to Hamilton. Went there on a Friday evening for a few quiet beers. Fantastic range of quality beers at very reasonable prices, served by very friendly and competent staff. We enjoyed the outdoor couches, and there was a good atmosphere without it being too loud to enjoy the conversation. We went back the following week to try the tapas. Great range, great flavours and combinations. Again the staff were excellent. Next time we are in town we will be back to try the full menu.
