About us

Glennie’s Restaurant

Restaurant Glennie’s is located in our apartment complex Kristall Plaza, opposite the Marchbarch gondola lift in the center of Niederau, Austria.

We serve various types of dishes with a nod to the Netherlands. Think of grandma’s meatball, pea soup with rye bread, fresh (Dutch) fish and delicious croquettes on bread.

In addition, we serve both Austrian and Italian specialties. A Wiener schnitzel, Tiroler Gröstl, a delicious carpaccio or a real Italian pasta, but everything with a modern touch. We work with local suppliers for the best quality, which you can taste in the Mc Glennie’s burger, for example! There is a lot of 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 skiing or snowboarding in the winter of walking or cycling during the summer, you can relax in Glennie’s with a good glass of Austrian wine or a nice glass of Zipfer beer. We are happy to serve you one of the bitter garnishes with private label bitterballs.

We also have a beautiful Ginbar where you can enjoy the tastiest Gin Tonics. Of course we also serve other (alcoholic) drinks.

Glennie’s Story

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!

Echter, blijft er natuurlijk altijd de zorg bij mijn vrouw Carina en mij over hoe het later met hem zal gaan. Dat is en blijft toch het verschil met ‘gewone kinderen’. Normaliter vindt een kind zijn of haar weg in de toekomst, maar met Glenn is dat toch anders. Zelfstandig wonen, voor zichzelf zorgen, een relatie en werk blijven een grote zorg en verantwoording voor ons als ouders.

In de loop der jaren is bij ons dan ook het idee ontstaan om zelf iets voor hem te creëren, waarin hij goed tot zijn recht kan komen. Dit heeft geresulteerd in de opzet van de restaurantketen GLENNIE’S. Met trots hebben we de eerste in 2016 geopend in Niederau – Wildschönau in Oostenrijk. In de komende jaren zullen er nog een aantal vestigingen geopend worden in Oostenrijk en zeker ook één in Nederland, waar Glenn dan zal komen te werken!
