Dinner with friends with about an hour to spend. WiFi worked well. Prices seem excessively high for the average food received and with the only actual service received is the delivery of the food to the table. Biggest disappointment was the warm milk served with a few ice cubes in it to apparently dilute it a bit more. Had the... More

I usually look forward to a Dome breakfast but this one was very disappointed. The restaurant was very busy, a ferry had just arrived, but we were surprised at how quickly our breakfasts arrived. The reason was very clear when we tasted it. The food was all cold or just warm. Cold poached eggs, dry scramble eggs, cold mushrooms, cold... More

Going to an empty-ish Dome makes all the difference. No queuing at the ordering point, food served quickly and made with effort. Plus all arrived at close to the same time. A big improvement on the weekend struggles.

Had an early start to get to Rotto so the Dome was a very welcome sight. Great breakfast with strong balanced coffee. Really made for a great start to the day!

It was very busy when we visited for breakfast. The coffee and food was bought out relatively quickly. Hubby's toast was more like hot bread. Great view and nice to be able to read the paper!

Really not making an effort probably because of the captive market. Prices are higher than other Domes and food/drinks mediocre - on at least two occasions we got the amateur Barista who was being left on their own and the coffee was weak and luke warm. The owner seemed to be too busy eating his own breakfast and socialising to... More

Okay, we know Dome is a small chain out of Perth but we fell in love with it while in Western Australia. It made it very hard to go back to Starbucks in the states. The coffee is excellent -- lived on flat whites (which, by the way, are beyond anything you get in the U.S.). Family and friends told... More

First of all the staff: great 👍 Without exception over 1 week everyone one was polite,courteous, smart, efficient and had a smile - what a great team. If the middle aged gent behind the counter was a team leader- well done, he knew the business so well and got that queue moving so efficiently without a sharp word for dozens... More

We stopped by for lunch yesterday. Service was speedy and staff were polite. Cleared our table in a good time and was always available for assistance. The food is very basic but came out quickly and definitely filled the spot. Nice place to get out of the heat for a moment.

Thank shezazle23
