The Domaine Eatery is located in central Hamilton and offers good quality food and wines. We had the Beef Stack - a nice layered presentation of prime fillet slices with caramelized onion and cheese in-between, and rolled chicken with bacon. Both were excellent. There is a good selection of by the glass wines as well as some very nice selections... More

The owner of this restaurant is also the chef - and he's very talented. The food is beautifully presented and really strives for perfection. We had a lovely meal and the service was wonderful. The eclectic wine list is also very good - not too big but has a broa selection of New Zealand wine.

We went here with pretty high expectations based on previous recommendations. Service was good and friendly but food a bit disappointing. We ordered baby quail and a beef stack. The baby quail meal lacked a sauce or gravy and the quail was tough and dry. The beef stack was sliced steak layered with onions and cheese, served with big chips... More

Domaine is a bit further out of the main dining precinct in the CBD, a bit further north on Victoria St. But it is definitely worth it. I have been here on a number of occasions with different groups of friends. Every time, I have experienced friendly service from wait staff who on the whole are quite knowledgeable. The food... More

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.
