This restaurant is attached to outstanding accommodation but it is the second time we have had an average meal here. The 2 girls waiting were too busy chatting to 2 men at the bar to give good service and the pork belly on mash was dry and on a mash of carrot. The presentation was very unappealing and I don't like cooked carrot. It would have helped if the menu said carrot mash. Gateway is such a great place to stay we will go back to the restaurant and hope this feed back is helpful.

Recently dined here as only option in vicinity to hotel. I ordered the steak with mushroom sauce, unfortunately it was over cooked and tough, I ordered medium rare. The sauce resembled gravy with mushrooms stirred thru it. My husband ordered the pasta and it arrived in a huge bowl with a very small amount in it, not $28 worth although he said it was cooked well. There were limited wines available as they were 'sold out' on a Monday night. Not my idea of fine dining for the price sadly.

We booked in for a family dinner this evening and found a very comfortable environment. Our meals were just fine and cooked perfectly. The staff were quite busy but when we sought attention; we were responded too in very good time. All was great.

We dined here recently and two of us ordered scallops. Although the dish was well presented the scallops were over cooked and tough. The vegetarian dish my daughter had was very good. The service was good.

We popped in here as it was the nearest place to the motel we were staying at. The food was good (although more vegetarian options are needed). The service could have been better as the waitress forgot to order our starters and then asked if we would like these alongside our mains.
