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

We arrived at Main Beach past 8:30 and after checking in, headed out for dinner. We stopped at Domani's as it looked like a nice place and had a good menu. We were surprised when the server told us that the kitchen was closing. To her credit, she said she would check if the chef would cater to us, and... More

Stopped for lunch, they had a half price lunch special, we ordered the Pork belly and a Duck pizza. For the price expected small serves and average quality but no, we were served full size dinner servings, no corners cut, beautifully presented, top quality. My pizza was amazing and my wife's pork belly was to die for, now have to... More

Domani's came through with a meal after 9pm, when many of the other restaurants in the area had closed. Two of the three meals were very good, but the lamb shanks were disappointing. Friendly and attentive service. Some very drunk and enthusiastic patrons watching the football on the in-house screen detracted from the ambience, which was a shame.

As I had enjoyed dinner at Domani's some months ago, I decided to pay a return visit. This time around I was disappointed with the meal and service. I ordered the grilled barramundi as a main. On the plate was a small piece of fish, a tiny amount of salad (consisting mainly of a few lettuce leaves), and a huge... More

We are a family of four and were driving past Domanis earlier in the day. It caught our eye and we stopped in that evening for dinner. What fantastic service, food and atmosphere. Its obviously a place where those who live close by go - it was packed. Nothing however, was too much trouble. Even after my AMAZING sizzling dish... More
