Given our location amongst some of Australia's finest producers of wine, dairy and artisan produce, we decided many years ago that we would create an onsite restaurant that heroes our local growers, farmers and makers.
Under the direction of Executive Chef Satakoon Sornchai (affectionately known as Yoyo) our restaurant celebrates north east Victoria and the changing seasons, offering a dining experience that is contemporary, yet generous, warm and welcoming.
We are known for excellence, winning the title of TAA (Victoria) Regional Hotel Restaurant of the Year 2021, having previously won in 2014 and nominated as a finalist 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2022 and 2023.
We proudly offer guests an experience that is just that little bit unexpected… exceptional service levels, food that is elegant, consistent, beautifully presented and made with pride.
The recently renovated bar and lounge is located adjacent to the restaurant space and is the perfect spot for pre-dinner drinks, cocktails, snacks or simply for coffee, a sweet treat or late nightcap.

Our Executive Chef Satakoon Sornchai (or Yoyo as he is affectionately known) has been an integral part of the Quality Hotel Wangaratta Gateway team (on and off!) for many years.
Yoyo commenced as an apprentice, then travelled and worked internationally, returning to Melbourne for several years and has been back leading the Gateway’s kitchen since February 2020.
Yoyo is thrilled the hotel restaurant was awarded the TAA (Victoria) Regional Hotel Restaurant of the Year 2021, an accolade of which he is extremely proud, and one he credits to his whole kitchen team, without whose commitment, passion and dedication, such success would not be possible.
Having worked in various establishments, a move to a property with a signature restaurant, has allowed Yoyo to fulfil his personal passion to establish an even deeper connection with the people, farmers and artisan makers of the region.
Yoyo has, for as long as he remembers enjoyed cooking, he loves that no day is ever the same and that in a kitchen it is all about working and learning together. Some of the words he hopes a diner would use to describe their Gateway dining experience include 'approachable yet different, food that is wholesome and above all else has been cooked with care.’
