My wife and I eat here often. The staff have always been so lovely and friendly - even on our first visit. They have a genuine half price menu (compared to George's Paragon which is a pretend half price) until early evening which is awesome . The choice of dishes ranges from great steaks, to lovely chicken, seafood, pizza, in... More

I am happy to report that our experience this evening has been exceptional. The service has been extremely good, unobtrusive, swift, informed and pleasant, even when under pressure. The wine selection provided with dinner was very well matched and definitely enhanced the dining experience. Our steaks were both cooked to perfection. We did notice a minor deviation from the description... More

Had another lunch at this restaurant and found it not as good as in previous visits. Service was not as efficient and the quality of the food had also, in my opinion, suffered. Perhaps it was because it was a Sunday? On visiting the men’s room, it appeared that the kitchens and way to the rest rooms were not as... More

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.
