Good food, good staff, pleasant outing

We dropped in yesterday afternoon (Anzac Day) for a late lunch (snack). We ended up having a meal - all good. Staff were good - we were greeted at the door, and didn't get the hard sell. We had a pizza, the calamari (entree) and the bruschetta, and this cost about $75. We were talking... read more

We ate at this great restaurant twice in a four day period as the food was terrific and the service faultless! Try the double roasted duck and the beautiful desserts amongst other great dishes. Lovely buzz in the restaurant - not noisy but friendly. We will certainly be going back.

A local couple invited us to have an early dinner at Domanis after work last Thursday night. Although we have lived on the Goldie for 23 years we haven't dined at any Main Beach restaurants before (or even been there). What a lovely area. Tedder Avenue is delightful. Domanis is right on a corner and we were seated in an... More

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.

we, a family of 2 adults and 2 children arrive early for our reservation and the staff were lovely in showing us our table. Duck confit, steak and a pizza (Special of the day) to share were ordered. The duck dish was moist, with lots of vegetables and a plum sauce that takes the dish to a greater high. The... More

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.
