A real favourite and one I can recomend. Always consistantly good with friendly service and great food. Oysters are always good and their signature dish, Beef Stack is a favourite with the guys. Not a huge wine list, but a good one! we always seem to go back for more.

For our Christmas celebration three couples chose Domaine as the place to celebrate the Christmas period. We were treated extremely well, and fed even better. Between us we covered a range of the menu and there wasn't an unhappy eater amongst us. All the food was superbly presented and tasted as good as it looked. The wine list was extensive... More

Service was good, quality and quantity of the food was good for my three companions, but the vegetarian option of beetroot and a little patty was as small if not smaller than most entrees. Fortunately the dessert filled the gaps as although I did mention to our waitress that the meal was very small nothing else was offered. She had... More

Took advantage of two of Domaine Eatery's Valentine specials and having never had dinner there before can say that they definately live up to their reputation for quality food and excellent service. Ordered a picnic basket for Thursday evening and it was beautifully presented and the selection of canapes fresh and tasty, particularly the cured salmon as I am not... More

We again enjoyed our meal at Domaine. Excellent food, and lots of it. The meal was made even better by the service. Friendly staff, and good fun to chat with while they served the table. Great wine selection, and at the end of the meal, great coffee. We have been to Domaine many times and will certainly return.

My husband, two sons and I enjoyed a meal mid last week which was exceptionally good. A small menu for dinner, but covers just about everything. We enjoyed a complimentary amuse bouche taster each before our well presented entrées arrived. Mains were served on warmed plates and there was plenty of food. Their signature dish - The Original Beef Stack... More

What a terrible experience to watch the owner/manager licking his fingers while plating up and pushing food off a spatchaler on to the plate (part of the Phoenix group of restaurant in Hamilton) all this in full view of their diners. Then, delivering the plate of food to a unsuspecting diner- how unhygienic is that!! What's more when we complained... More

We were here a year ago and decided to return again to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary. Love the fact that the booking could be made online and the seating I requested, was provided. A nice touch to provide complimentary tasters whilst we waited for our order. The food was lovely as always. The restaurant was busier and I am pleased,... More

A bit hard to find and was a little bit over priced. Awesome service, was serviced by the owner of the business, which was really random. Got us to try a few different things on the menu and brought us out complimentary appetizers, which was cool. Over all, the service was good but was over priced for what it was.

We took our important business visitors from Australia here because it had a great reputation and has been consistently good over the many years it has been open. It has changed owners and lost the plot. From abysmal service to shocking food we were extremely unhappy campers. We constantly had to chase staff for water and wine and the delay... More
