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

We visit the Gold Coast about once a year and never miss going to Domanis. The food is always excellent and the staff really go the extra mile . Very reasonably priced and totally enjoyable.

We were recommended to eat at Domanis which we also found to be fantastic. If you arrive before 6pm there is a half price menu, including lamb shanks, steaks, risotto. The meals were great tasting as well as good size. All of the staff here were excellent at their jobs and nothing was too much trouble. Highly recommend this restaurant.

Great food and friendly staff. Pre 6pm menu is also excellent value! Please bring back the pumpkin or sweet potato mash with the chicken dish :) Haloumi starter is my fav! Cheers and see you again soon.

Same old fare, boring menu and not done that well. The 'crispy' beef salad was ordinary but the prawns as a side were surprisingly good. Service so so as well. Doubt i'll be back.

Although I've only been here one or twice the service is very good and their water doesn't taste of chlorine! which makes a change from other places. Coffee was excellent and food was good value for money.
