“Above average Italian fare - service disappoints and skip dessert.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2012

Went to Dom's with my wife and young son. The place has been here for quite a few years and have been before, but not for a while. The menu doesn't change but to be fair there are nightly specials that do. The food is above average. Good solid and filling Italian staples; pasta, risotto, chicken, steaks, seafood and a good selection if you're vegetarian. Our entrees included oysters with a horseradish dressing and a fig salad; with rocket, blue cheese, fried pancetta and a balsamic sauce.. really nice! Mains were chicken with a cream based sauce and barramundi with a pea purée... both also good. Dessert was really ordinary. The mud cake and cheesecake would be more at home at a cheap cafe and neither were that fresh - not what you would expect to match the first two courses. The service was really really slow (bad if you have kids so go early) and some of the staff were indifferent - don't think the cashier wanted to be there at all! It is licensed. Parking is ample out the front on the street (it's nearly opposite the police station). Wheelchair access yes. Kid friendly yes.

“Superb choices,wonderfully cooked local produce”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2012

Check the specials board and if Stuffed Zucchini Flowers and local fish is on - go for them. The pasta is always delectable, the garlic bread heavenly - but it pays to be adventurous! I'm not a coffee drinker but everyone local says Dom's coffee is the best! There's a bar and lounge area and a lengthy wine list sure to suit all budgets and palates.

For a gourmet Italian meal when you don't mind paying a bit extra, Dominic's is consistently good in Brunswick Heads.
