“Good dining experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2014

I recently had the half price dinner (order by 6pm) at Domanis in Tedder Avenue Main Beach. The waitress was very friendly and welcoming, and helpful when I was choosing my food and a glass of wine. I ordered one of the salads for entree and the fish (very fresh) for my main course.
The portions were generous and the food tasty.
In reply to one reviewer who said he/she thought everything was half price, there was a menu clearly displayed outside showing which items were offered on special ( and there was a reasonable choice offered).
I enjoyed the friendly service, tasty meal and the ambience of the restaurant. I'll be back next time!

“Nice place to unwind”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2014

Dined here a week ago with my girlfriend on our holiday. Was pleasantly surprised with good service, good food and a pretty chilled and relaxed atmosphere. We sat outside, there was plenty of space and our waiter was attentive. Girlfriend had the Twice Roasted Duck while I had the pizza special of the day - all ingredients were fresh, the food arrived quickly and was overall a very pleasant dining experience.

“Great menu, fast service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

The menu is essentially Italian, but with some interesting twists. We dined mid-week and the service was very fast. Almost too fast, as we were talking with old friends and the mains arrived very quickly. Wine list was varied and not expensive. This is a corner location, so it's good for people watching, but from Thursday on it's very popular so you must book. Forget about Sunday morning breakfast, it's full of locals keen to dine out on Tedder Avenue.
