Domaine was warm and welcoming on a cold winter's day but it was the divine food which won my heart. I enjoyed the cosy atmosphere and impeccable service so much I returned the next day to dine all over again. The ravoli was spectacular and the iced tea - rhubarb and plum was extraordinary. I could really go on and... More

My sister passed her masters degree so we all went out for dinner very last minute on a Tuesday night. Domaine was very accommodating and the service was probably the best I've had at a restaurant in a long time. I had the 12hr slow cooked lamb, devine, and the plate presentation was exceptional. My partner had the venison which... More

We were pleasantly surprised to find such a delightful restaurant to break our journey south, on the way to Huka Lodge. The fish and chips were very good, nice crisp batter and chunky chips and the chicken burger was excellent. Good selection of wines and a cheery open fire.

My husband and I went for a relaxing dinner out and truely enjoyed ourselves. Lovely seating areas with a lot set out as cubicals. The service was nice and not rushed (pet hate is feeling rushed) and the restaurant was kept lovely and warm. I had the garlic bread (shared luckily as quite large), Beef stack (wonderful) and the Chocolate... More

Great meal. Service when we arrived was excellent. Had to wait for our main meal a bit longer than usual but when it arrived was yummy. They were very busy. Prices are in the mid $30s for a main and side dishes are $7.00. Would definitely return.

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.
