Gateway offers anything from a quick cup of coffee to restaurants offering full meals. The restaurants, like the shops, offer many different menus to suit your wallet.

Gateway has a Wave House where you and the kids can have a go on the D-Rex wave or if that's a little daunting try one of the 2 training waves for some adrenalin filled fun. Let your children burn off some steam at the skate park designed by skating legend Tony Hawks.
