We had an excellent meal and great service the first night we went to Domanis. My son and I both chose signature dishes, the duck and the pork. Both were outstanding and decent portions. My husband enjoyed a duck pasta from the specials board and they catered for my younger daughter, making her a margarita pizza.

A long established iconic restaurant in the middle of Tedder Ave. Main Beach. A wide chioce of food, our favourites being the fish of the day, and their tender steaks. Great for families, and pleasant indoor/outddor corner setting.

We were served by Kate. She was extremely attentive to the table. Coffees were amazing, the omelettes were fantastic and juicy. Thanks to Kate for a great experience. We often visit for breakfast and this was the best one so far.

Great tasting meals for all with some options for the little ones. Staff are friendly and willing to assist. Tip is to order your meal before 6.00pm to get the meal at half price.

Didn't have a booking so had to wait at the bar until a table was available ... Fine with this... Waiter was welcoming and the wait wasn't too long. The food was disappointing. Ordered 2 steaks ... Eye fillet.. one rare and one medium rare... Both came out medium... No steak knives provided so sawed our way through the steak.... More
