We did a lap of "The Tedder Strip" whilst deciding where to dine & Domanis was by far the busiest. We were told 30 mins wait for a table which was fine as we were able to sit in the bar & have a drink & garlic Pizza. Didn't take note of how long it actually took as we were... More

We live at Main Beach so this was not our first visit, but it has now become the restaurant to avoid on Tedder Avenue. Today there were no less than 5 service staff for 20 diners and the service could not have been a bigger joke. In the end my husband sat and enjoyed watching the staff try to look... More

Domanis is a place to go for a relaxed time with great food and the best service. We go often and they treat you like family, we nearly always take up the pre 6pm menu offer, wine list is good and not too expensive either.

On holidays and looking for somewhere for dinner. Domanis looked quite busy compared to other restaurants so we figured it must be good. They said it would be a half hour wait for dinner so we had a drink in the bar. The staff were friendly & helpful & we had a table well before the half hour. We decided... More

Arrived unbooked on a week night. Was informed by the rather unfriendly receptionist that they were fully booked, even though there were several tables vacant. After a bit of questioning by us, we we offered a table in around 30min, which we were happy with. We got ourselves drinks, from an abrupt bar tender, and waited at a leaner. After... More

I never post after the first time. This is our second visit and both times everything was great. Very good service by efficient well mannered staff. Loved the food. Extensive wine list and friendly casual atmosphere. We will be back.

Really wasn't happy with the service. The salmon was inedible I told the waitress and she didn't even come back and apologise or offer a discount! As I was paying I told the other waitress who just said 'oh sorry about that' and still charged me! I wont be going back. This is the first negative review I have ever... More
