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.
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!
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!
(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!!!
Good vegetarian choices too!
Hahahaha David I think it is a passionate, witty, waiter as well
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..
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…
I have been back several times and every time been impressed with the food, atmosphere and service. Highly recommended.
