Service was prompt enough and the food was nice. They did muck up my first few items on the set menu (vegetarian and they brought me the non-vege meals), however things were pretty hectic

On Monday February 2nd we dined at Domaine with two friends, sitting inside the open window at the front. Our meal was excellent with unusual elements which all jelled well together. (We didn't have the desserts but there were three: a chocolate plate of various chocolate themed foods, a berry fruit one of similarly varied bits, and one other which... More

Went for a celebratory lunch. We were sat right next to the pass- which was great. Had breads to start. Nice fresh bread. Main I had the pasta. I'm not usually a fan but this was yum. Others had the famous steak sandwich. Dessert we had the chocolate option. It was amazing and we got to watch it being plated.... More

We came here for Xmas dinner (group of 7). The service, and food were fabulous. As all the starters on the set menu were seafood based, they happily arranged some alternative options for those of us who werent seafood fans. The food presented looked incredible and was lots of fun to eat.

This last weekend I wanted to take a special young lady someplace to remember and they knocked it out of the park. We haven't been seeing each other long so I wanted her to feel 'treated'. The restaurant is intimate and welcoming, as is the welcome we got when we arrived. The staff are relaxed and casual yet discreet and... More

This was one of those restaurants where you felt that although there was nothing particularly wrong, it just seemed to fall short of a memorable dining experience. The service was fine, the food was ok but nothing really special. I think what it lacked most for me was atmosphere. I didn't particularly like the banquette / booth style seating which... More

My second experience at Domaine and this time with my family. Loved the vegetarian gnocchi and the gorgeous desert (which I couldn't quite finish) was balanced both aesthetically and flavour wise. Would come back in anticipation for what was on the menu next time. Well worth the little bit extra on the prices.
