The sizzling prawns over lemon risotto is one of the best meals we have ever had and the gourmet pizza on the Special's board is fabulous too. The best thing about the kitchen here is that the food is consistently good. They also have some wines with a bit of age. The Peterson's chardonnay is very easy to drink and... More

Most certainly a top dining experience! After seeing the reviews myself and my partner decided to dine here. We had a beautiful evening with first class cocktails, great wine, food and service. The wine menu is vast and filled with quality wines. The service friendly, efficient and not too intrusive. We had a lovely English waiter who made us feel... More

We had lunch here and while it was ok, it didn't stack up to other restaurants on Tedder Ave. The service was slow and a little clumsy. The arancini was bland and dry and the crispy battered Barramundi was very oily. The lemon wedge served was barely enough to help cut through the oil. Everything else was ok and the... More

After enjoying a Cafe in Main Beach yesterday we decided to return for breakfast/brunch again. They were only open for Sunday lunch so we chose Domani's. A friendly welcome and a few more exotic breakfasts led me to order. I have never seen sausages and onion gravy served with eggs before, so why not? The meal was great and blended... More
