Had dinner here for my boyfriend’s birthday. Picked the place for their large selection of Belgian beers and was not disappointed! Tried the beef and duck mains which were beautifully made. Will have to return for the tapas sometime!
Arrived at 5.45 on Friday to find it completely empty so asked for table to seat 4, one being a teenager in full leg brace and on crutches. Was told the only table available was the one directly next to the entrance as ALL other tables were reserved, despite no reserved signs on any of them. We assumed it was a private function or genuinely booked individuals but after an hour only two people were seated, then another 4 by the time we left . One of the many tables lining two walls that I requested but was denied with lounge seating so the teenager’s leg could be elevated remained empty. So after a drink, tapas and a 5th person joining us, as well as only another 6 other diners in the place, we decided to take our business elsewhere. 5 delicious mains, bottle of wine, beers and desert later at the more accommodating, friendlier restaurant across the road, we were happy chappies. Btw $20 mains compared handsomely to Gothenburg’s $17 tapas, meaning we could relax in the comfort of satisfying value for money dining.
We love this place! The food is exquisite the waiters attentive friendly and fun. The food is fantastic, we had one slightly bad dish (over salted) and commented so to our waiter it was immediately removed and replaced with an apology and removed from our bill the replaced dish was perfect, we have been back a number of times since and will continue to and never had a repeat of a poor meal, it was a one off and the way it was dealt with was brilliant, well done Gothenburg see you again soon.
Gothenburg always delivers. Great food, beer and service. The staff are always friendly, knowledgeable about the products and the speed of food delivery is freakin’ awesome. This place is one of our favourites for all these reasons.
I have eaten twice at Gothenburg Cafe as I travel to Hamilton for business.
The food rocks, we had a selection of tapas including the cheese fondue to start and the pork belly, the pork belly is divine! I have not tasted pork belly as good anywhere else, all the other tapas we ordered were mouth watering also. We shared two desserts which were also beautiful.
I highly recommend Gothenburg Cafe, both times I have eaten here the food, wine and service has been exceptional!
OMG…..loved it. great service, great food, great atmosphere.
Thank your so much Gothenburg for everything. Your staff were awesome, I loved it, thank you so much I’ll be back.
I love dinning out, and sorry not always for the food, cause I’m so hard to please, vegetarian and small appetite, for me its not about the food….but about the service, atmosphere, …the waitress was so cute…And I’m a girl…she was good at what she did, Gothenburg thank you for teaching your staff what hospitality is about…It’s all I need really, and it’s not that hard.
Have eaten there previously, the experience has always been great. Focus is on looking after customers, service is tops but not over the top, food is not mainstream but is intetesting, delicious and varied, so many tapas dishes . Great selection of different beers local and international, reasonable choice of wines, knowledgeable staff, ambiance and atmosphere are intimate but not too private, could not ask for more. Thanks team.
Went here last night with a group of 12 – service was outstanding, no one ever without a drink and water bottles constantly replaced. All the food came out at the same time, and the staff were also very accommodating about the homemade birthday cake brought in
The food itself was incredible, we had about half the items on the tapas menu and they were all delicious. Huge range of beers and some very good cocktails.
Wouldn’t hesitate to call this the best restaurant in Hamilton right now!
Outstanding. Great food & excellent service. They went the extra mile to accommodate our difficult food requirements, also, they have great beers & know what they are talking about when they recommend different beers for each individual taste preferences. Gig thanx to the team at Gothenburg for a great evening.
Can we complain about service being fast & too efficient?!!
No, Gothenburg is yet another fantastic restaurant Hamilton has too offer.
We did the Tapas & couldn’t complain about everything we had was amazing & definitely got the taste buds going.
We will be back!
Wow, one of the nicest 3 course meals we’ve had. Beer/wine perfectly matched. Great atmosphere, amazing staff. Totally recommend this place, not on the cheaper end of the scale at all, but for an amazing night out! Well done Gothenburg. The first 5 star rating I’ve given
Gothenburg is the best restaurant in Hamilton hands down!
(and we have tried them all!)
Amazing food and great atmosphere.
We shared a chorizo tapas to start and then followed with the fillet steak for a main. Both courses were creative and delicious, especially the veges which had soaked up the Chorizo sausage flavour. We then finished with the waffles (Spanish style) which topped off the meal perfectly.
The meals are a perfect size and you feel like you have had just enough.
This is what great dining is all about.
The question is how soon can we go back!!!
Went here recently for a friends birthday lunch.Have been here quite a few times and this place is definately a favourite.The food was gorgeous as usual.The only fault I would have is the wait for our dessert.We were the only table left and we waited ages for the dessert to come out.
Had dinner here so many times. I’ve had lunch too! Never been disappointed or anything. I love the wine list and if you haven’t had the strawberry beer it’s well worth it.
Good vegetarian choices too!
Hahahaha David I think it is a passionate, witty, waiter as well
I’ve had dinner here about 5 or so times. Never been disappointed in the slightest. Only problem is narrowing down what tapas to choose, they are all so delicious. Heard good things about the pizzas too. And the staff are great, always so nice and friendly. So nice to sit outside on the couches, under the heaters too!
Visited Gothenburg purely based on the reviews here in MenuMania.. Would have liked to have given them 5 stars as in many ways do they deserve it.
The food was very well cooked and well presented, the quantity of food on the plate was just right. So it did not you leave bloated or hungry after three courses.
Their beer list is impressive at nearly 20 pages and many I have not seen before and some of the fruit beers were quite tasty.
The Restaurant is more in the Cafe stile than restaurant so bit noisy with wooden floors but is very well appointed.
Service is one place that lets them down, it is very disjointed with you being served by just about every waitress/waiter with varying levels of service quantity. Some very exceptional, other not so much.
From a drinks perspective the wine list was very limited with less than one page covering White, Red and Sparkling. But saying that most of the wines listed are/were gold medal winners..
Definitely a favourite. The food, wine, beer and staff are exceptional. We have dined here a number of times and we find that everything we experience is consistently fabulous. The menu changes regularly which is great, however the pork belly is amazing and the cheeseboard is equally great. I have noticed these don’t leave the menu but the favours may change which is perfect.
I was on a road trip to Hamilton so we did some research on restaurants before we went. The previous reviews have proven to be so true. This is definitely a 5-star restaurant for me. The service was SUPERB and so were the food.
We had 2 tapas, the seared scallops and the duck with mandarin pancakes. The sauce and scallops just went SO well together, so did the herbs and duck. We had a spiced beef pizza which tasted really good, even for someone like me who usually aren’t keen on strong spices. The taste merges well and it was very enjoyable. The restaurant has a huge selection on beer too.
Gothenburg alone makes me want to go to Hamilton again and again and again…
Nice place in Hamilton to relax.. extraordinary outdoor seating area. Good selection of beers, delicious food. Will go back definitely, highly recommend..!!!
Had lunch here last weekend with a friend. We both ordered pizzas (which came with a glass of wine $20). Food was delicious and the staff were very friendly and professional. Will definately be going back sometime soon.
Gothenburg comes highly recommended, its fantastic from the service to the amazing food, I was part of a big group & we couldnt have faulted anything (the felafel salad is wonderful as was the Pork Belly apparently)..great for big groups, definitely will re book
Best Pork Belly I have EVER had. Yellow curry Mussels were also stand out.
Plus it’s nice to have such a great range of Belgian beer somewhere that also does amazing food. I’ll be back. Weekly!
Something a little different; delicious tapas with a European theme alongside tasty pizzas. Some friends and I decided to try Gothenburg for lunch, and were not disappointed! The staff are friendly and knowledgeable about the menu without being pushy. The food was fresh, well cooked and nicely presented. The goat cheese pizza and patatas arrugadas were highlights, as were the warmed olives.
I have been back several times and every time been impressed with the food, atmosphere and service. Highly recommended.
