Visited for dinner while in Surfers for a holiday. The chicken penne was amazing, and the beef & lamb rump dishes were also great. We were accommodated without a booking, and received great service.

I've dined at Domanis in the past and always enjoyed the meals. Unfortunately this time I can't be too complimentary. Had the risotto and it was not cooked. Rice grains were hard. Send it back and it looks like it was just reheated as there were lamps of cheese throughout. The waitress was very apologetic and claimed chef was using... More

Orders are taken quickly and both entrees and mains delivered without delay, although the mains arrived before the entree plates had been cleared. Perfectly cooked pasta all round. Reasonable wine list but no Italian wines! Certainly worth having... More

The service is warm and welcoming and we felt like locals towards the end of our stay. I can see why it is an award winning... More

Have eaten three times here in December and it is a cut above most local restaurants, both in terms of the standard of cuisine and the enthusiasm and helpfulness of the staff. They do some v good deals too.

a super position right in front of the stage for the xmas party for dinner which we had after having lunch at the same venue!! Risotto was perfect, Lamb rump was magic and the kids were extremely happy with their meals. Service was spot on :) A very good fine dining experience.
