“Dissappionted”
Reviewed December 26, 2013

We have dined at the Gateway Restaurant on a rergular basis but after dining there last night ,Boxing day, we were extremly dissappionted. The service was terrible,there was none, the food also was terrible.There were 14 of us and we were finished our meals before a couple of meals came out, one was completely forgotton and 2 orders of chips were also forgotton.I used to brag about this restaurant as the best in Lismore .The young couple that were there and the staff done a wonderful job and made you freel very welcome.The food and presentation were of a very high standard. It will be a long time before we will be going back there.IT's a shame to see a lovely restaurant go bad..

“not happy”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

was not really impressed with The Gateway at all , the food was ok but very overpriced for what you got and certianly looked nothing like what the ads reflected, the service was poor and the ambience was almost like a bistro feel not the fine dining restaurant it is portrayed to be

“Great food Great people”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

I had a great experience at the Gateway. Staff are great, happy and nothing is to much trouble. The best food I have had for a long time, very well presented. Can't wait to go again and try what else they have to offer. LOVE the Death by chocolate.

“Nice new rooms”
Reviewed May 10, 2013 via mobile

Overall stay was pleasant enough, a little inconsistent with breakfast menu and room servicing. Evening dinner was fantastic however could do with more attention to empty glasses! Wouldn't let the above stop me staying there again. Staff very friendly and helpful.

“Unbelievable Motel and Food”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

We were only on day one of our trip home back to Melbourne after being in Queensland for 8 mths we only wanted to go a short way and saw The Gateway Motel and Restaurant online and decided to stay the night we were greeted by very polite staff, when we got to our room it was beautiful, very clean with lovely decor and comfy bed. We decided to get room service (we are always very dubious but were tired) only to be surprised the prices were extremely reasonable $28 for a 300 gram rib fillet with chat potatoes, beer battered onion rings with a bacon shallot and mushroom jus so we thought 'lets go for it' it was one of the best steaks cooked perfectly as we like it presented like a five star restaurant and the quality was incredible would have to be the best meal I've had out in ages. Wow I wish you were closer to Melbourne. Great venue, staff nothing too much trouble and awesome food.
