We had lamb shanks and salmon for dinner. All dishes tasted nice. The staff is cheerful. We had good time there before the flight.

The restaurant is a bit dated as others have commented. The waitress was friendly and meals were brought out promptly. We had steak and the pasta special and these were both tasty especially the pasta with a tasty rich sauce.

The food was a huge surprise! It was absolutely wonderful!! When we walked into the Airport Gateway restaurant we would have turned around and left again if it hadn’t been for the first table booking. The decor is very dated and the menu was very much reduced from the sample menu on first table. There was no drinks menu. We were worried about the quality of the food, BUT was pleasantly surprised and loved every mouthful of the salmon and the soup of the day, Minestrone!!!

Everything was perfect. Beautifully presented food, extremely delicious! Lovely surroundings and friendly, very professional service. Using first table is great - we would never had thought of going to this restaurant without first table. Can’t wait to go again :)

Three of us had meals adjusted to our eating habits which was most appreciated. Service was fast which is great when one of the party is only 5 years old, and a nice wee playground outside topped the evening off for her

It was a nice little place. Food was pretty good for a motel restaurant. The entrance is a bit uninviting but once inside the atmosphere is fine. There's a little playground to entertain the children too.

We arrived early for our reservation and this was not a problem. We ordered a drink and placed our order. The service was prompt, the food was great. The flat bread was delicious as were our mains. We will go back. Thank you

We had limited time at the restaurant due to a scheduled flight departure so time was of the essence. We were met with a totally understanding, friendly and efficient waitress who brought the food out super quick. It was absolutely delicious and reasonably priced, even better with First Table! We would highly recommend and certainly have no hesitation in going back.

The waitress was very friendly. Meal was served with out delay. Salmon was lovely as was the lamb shank. Gluten free options appreciated.
Would go again, 5.30 dining time suited us well.

On entry that service was fabulous but I have to admit the dinner wasn't the best. My recommendation don't order the Solomon, the taste wasbad and the vegetables were old and I mean very old. My husband meal was ok and he recommendation that the steak was cook really nicely but the rest has a funky smell to it wasn't pleasant at all. The kids meals were spot on....Parents I would recommend ordering the Sliders from the kids meal that was just right for my two children. We didn't order desert but the services was ok and the waitress said that the chief and remove the old veggies and making up a new lot now.....Hummmmmm. Don't get me wrong each to their own, this was only my experience not yours, so give it a go....Enjoy your Kai

We had a lovely meal on Tuesday night. Very convenient for anyone wanting a quick meal before going to the airport. The service was good disputed the fact that it was a very busy night . We will be back.

Not a lot to say really, service was ok, food was very average, would have to improve a lot to get me to go back.

Really enjoyed the food and service was lovely, we ended up with an extra person as had no baby sitter, this wasn't an issue and staff were very relaxed and friendly. First time we have taken our wee man out for tea and he has eaten everything.

A great opportunity to try a new place to eat. Warm and friendly we were seated in a booth with our friends and had a great night- thick juicy steaks and dessert. There was no pressure to move on and the sound level of the restaurant and bar was muted and suitable for easy conversation. A great night out!
