I come here semi regularly with friends. Love the kimchi pork dumplings! Food is fairly fast and staggered to come out which is good.

This restaurant offers a refreshingly great range of food in their menu. Awesome views from the lake as well. A bit costly but food was superb.

Exceptional. This would be mine and my fiance's third visit, this time, we had her birthday there. Food was amazing, service was great and all over a great evening. Stand out meals was the dumplings and pork belly. Can't wait to go back!

A great variety on the tapas menu, always well presented and full of great flavour. Good friendly service and a really nice outlook over the Waikato River (fantastic place to be for lunch or evening meals in the summer)

The situation is fantastic with to-die-for views of the mighty Waikato River . The decor is sophisticated. The Tapas are outstanding and of a generous serving. The wine list is very good. I have had a number of very very enjoyable evenings at this restaurant....More

i wish to respond to your unbelievable response to my wife's concerns after getting blisters the size of 20 cent pieces in her mouth on 28th March.Your response was rude,condescending and most unprofessional ,you obviously don't take fair criticism at all well.I can assure you the blisters were real as witnessed by me.We are both bitterly disappointment by your replies as we have eaten at your establishment at least three or four times a year for many years.

I thought their response was witty and well thought out. They provided evidence dismissing your wife's claims that the chilli burnt her mouth. I myself have eaten the dish as well as many of my friends and we not once have... More

Hi there, I'm looking at visiting Gothenburg for a meal with my husband. I have a question about the tapas - how many dishes would you recommend per person (as it can vary from one place to another)? Thank you.

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.
