“Only thing missing was DeNiro!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

Firstly this place is the best American Diner this side of the pond!

Home made burgers that could bring a tear to a Chicago born Guy like myself. Move over Mom's apple it's Gateway's Burgers that hit the spot for this ex-pat now set up home in the Netherlands.

Great food, good staff (slightly wacky, but always smiling!).

“Burgers to diet for!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

What a surprise find this great restaurant has been!

Its an American Diner in a beautiful park on the water in Almere. The burgers are really amazing, better than anywhere this side of Texas.

Some places try to be retro but this place does not even need to try, it is the real thing!

How did it end up here is also part of the charm of this place, ask one of the excellent staff or the friendly owner Martin to tell you the story over a Jack Daniels.

Well worth a visit, and very child friendly, we love it.

“Real american diner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013 via mobile

Tipical american diner with hamburgers . It looks as the real thing but the food is more on the dutch side so don't expect the breakfast with beans,eggs, baked potato's + the free refills. Still a nice experience to feel the atmosphere of the real thing.

“A great place to be, great staff and so original”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

Gateway Diner is a unique place with good food and great staff.

Transport you and your family to 50's Usa. This is not a replica it is the real thing!

If you like Elvis, Maryiln and Blue suede shoes you will love this place!

A great place to take your little Rock and Rollers too as in a park and often a bouncy castle for the to play in
