Restaurant Glennie’s is located in our apartment complex Kristall Plaza, opposite the Marchbarch gondola lift in the center of Niederau, Austria.
We serve among other things, the best dishes of the Netherlands, such as a super tender Dutch steak, various kinds of sandwiches, fresh (Dutch) fish dishes, grandma’s meatball, Dutch pea soup with rye bread and of course the Mc Glennie’s burger
We also serve Austrian and Italian specialties. For instance, the Wiener schnitzel and Troller Gröstl, a delicious carpaccio or a real Italian pasta, but with a modern touch. Quite a choice and something for everyone.
Of course we also thought of the little ones. For example, they can choose from pancakes, spaghetti bolognese or a small Glennie’s schnitzel.
After a day of walking or cycling you can relax in Glennie’s with a nice glass of wine or a clear Heineken. We are happy to serve you one of the bitter garnishes with the Dutch van Dobben bitterballs!

Paul & Carina de Römph (owners) proudly tell the background story of Glennie’s Resto:
“My wife and I have a child with Down syndrome, called Glenn. He was born in 1994 and then your world is turned upside down. Fortunately, Glenn was healthy and he developed especially socially great into a balanced person.
For Glenn we already had 2 boys and after Glenn we also got 2 more girls. A complete family, in which Glenn is the center. He has absolutely enriched our lives and we receive a lot of love and pleasure from him. He is the common thread in our lives.
He just runs in the family, goes to work every day, occasionally he does a bit of fitness, goes out to restaurants and fun activities, he participates on wintersport and other holidays and is much on his iPad. He also loves football a lot and is especially fan of Feyenoord. Glenn regularly goes along with me and his brothers to the Kuip to support Feyenoord.
In society, a lot has changed in the last decades, also in relation to Down syndrome. Much more acceptance and possibilities. The guidance has become more intensive and much more professional, especially from the medical angle. We ourselves do not or hardly encounter negative reactions.
However, there is always the concern of my wife Carina and me about how it will go with him later. An ordinary child normally finds his or her way and with Glenn it is different. Independent living, caring for themselves and work remain a major concern and responsibility.
Over the years we have come up with the idea to create something for him, in which he can come into his own right. This has resulted in the design of the GLENNIE’S restaurant chain. We proudly opened the first in 2016 in Austria. In the coming years there a number of Glennie’s restaurants will be opened in Austria en certainly one in the Netherlands, where Glenn will come to work!
