The food was fine, but I never expected to have tapas served in a place that is named after a Danish city. Too weird for meMore

Great setting and good food. Tapas menu worked well for our large group bringing out small parcels of food over a period of an hour. Don't know if its the very high ceiling but the restaurant can be very noisy.

What a groovy place. Stunning inside and out!!! Food was lovely. Staff attentive. My only complaint was that with the high ceilings and the place full it was very hard to hear our conversation. I didn't pay so unsure of prices.

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.
