Great flavours

Such a nice restaurant, lovely flavours in all meals and a great variety to try. Small meals but hey- they tasted great. Very much so on the more expensive side of Hamilton, so if you are looking for a cheap bite, you definitely won't find it at this place, otherwise give it a try. Lovely quite... read more

Came for work lunch with 8 others, restaurant relatively empty, and took over an hour to be served. Considering five of us had ordered the same sandwich, we were really quite surprised at how long it took. Food was OK, nothing spectacular. Prices were fair.

This is a lovely restaurant with am interesting menu, friendly and attentive wait staff, and a kitchen that is rather slow - possibly understaffed or rushed with details. We came as a group of six, and the food was slow to arrive - but the chef sent out an extra appetizers or two for us to try, so no one... More

We went there for dinner with a couple of friends and food in general was above average. The price is on the expensive side comparing the food and quality to the others in Hamilton. The chocolate at the end was a very nice touch.

This place has the potential to stand out as an eating jewel in Hamilton- its location, décor, wine list, and clearly creative and committed chef should ensure that. But a restaurant must be consistently good in every aspect of service to warrant high end pricing and my eating and service experiences in the last year have been mixed. Last visit... More

Food was overpriced and was just "okay"- I could tell that the chef is trying to be creative with the menu, but unfortunately didn't always pull it off (I have eaten here more than three times). Waiting time for food was long - waiting staff was lovely though and had to apologize a few times for the wait. Overall disappointed... More

The staff looked after me and my friend really well, making sure we had everything we needed. The food was beautifully presented. I enjoyed my lamb dish, although some of the lamb pieces were a bit chewy.

We had not been to Domaine for quite a few years but decided it was time for another visit after reading reviews, so I booked for my husband's birthday, asking for a nice special table. We were greeted promptly and shown to a nice table. We selected our drinks and then waited for our wait person to take our order.... More
