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.

A great selection of mains with duck, venison, lamb, beef, fish and chicken. All cooked and presented extremely efficiently. Entrees and breads had a very good selection and everything fresh and well seasoned. The staff were very pleasant, efficient and enjoyed a joke.

We had to travel to Hamilton because our Dad had been admitted to hospital. At 10.00pm, at night we are driving down the main street in Hamilton looking for some nice (not takeaways) to eat. Wishful thinking really at that time. We spotted DOMAINE Eatery and saw a few people in the restaurant and thought we would take a chance.... More

First choice of champagne not available, second choice not available had to order the only one left on the wine list and then had to wait for it to be chilled. Food stunning.

Domaine was a great choice for lunch to celebrate our friend's special birthday. The menu choice was small but adequate for a lunch time meal. We all had the salad options with chicken or salmon & they were all delicious. The waitress was attentive & helpful on wine & meal selections & making sure our water glasses were topped up.... More

We attended the recent Palliser Estate Degustation night at Domaine, having enjoyed several meals and pleasant evenings at this restaurant. We had the aim of trying a number of different tastes on the night and expected the degustation style of meal to give us this experience. The staff were welcoming as usual and we were seated at a table for... More

We dined as a group of six friends and had a most enjoyable evening. We were warmly welcomed. The service was very good with attentive and courteous waiters. The menu selection is excellent. Our main dishes were extremely well presented and enjoyed by all members of our group. Similarly the desserts were divine. There was a very good wine list... More
