Great value and service

Dinned on a Monday night. In and ordered before 6pm and had our choice of the half price menu. Went with a porchetta and crispy chicken. Both meals where great. Good wine selection too. Great value if in before 6pm

My friend & I shared duck liver pâté - 5 out of ten. Nothing outstanding but ok. We shared sea scallops on chorizo which was ordinary - the flavour & fat flavour overwhelmed the fresh sea flavour of the scallops. The tempura prawns were nice but not a great deal of flavour - with a very bland aoli. The staff... More

We ate here several times during our stay at Main Beach, remembering it being great from a trip four year earlier. We were not disappointed, with yummy meals, great kids options (forget boring nuggets and chips!) they catered with yummy homemade pasta like nonna makes for my three year old and delicious s&p calamari for my gourmet master 5 -...

Domanis is a great place to have the perfect breakfast. The food is great, the staff are always very friendly and the service is wonderful. We go there every time we stay on the coast. The prices are always affordable and great value for money. Well done Domanis. We'll be back.

We visited Domanis in December 2014 for a lunch. It was the busiest restaurant, so we assumed it would offer the best value. We ate as an entrée: a duck liver pate, which tasted very bitter and a calamari, with two tiny pieces without any flavour. We ate for main a risotto, which looked more like a rice soup. Desert...

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
