Better than expected

Generally this place doesn't look very busy and that gives the impression that it's lacking in quality as an eatery.

We ate at the Southgate tonight with our 2 children. Food was delicious and service was friendly and efficient. Restaurant was quiet which was surprising given our excellent meals.

We love a buffet breakfast and asked at information if any places in Mt Gambier did one. We were told there were none. We were therefore very happy to find on checking in to the Best Western Southgate (by pure coincidence), that they do a continental buffet breakfast!

I cannot agree with the other review as our experience at the gates restaurant within the Southgate motel was excellent in both food and service. Breakfast was also well presented and the food was delightful A perfect start to the day 5 out of 5 from us!
