PROFILE BY BEST RESTAURANTS

Restaurateurs Neil and Kerri Fisher welcome diners to Domanis all day, every day for breakfast, lunch, dinner and in-betweens. Guests enjoy the intimate yet open environment and a varied menu of traditional and modern Italian cuisine, while the cocktail bar is a popular meeting spot for locals and tourists alike. The breakfast menu features a huge selection of traditional dishes and gourmet options. There's lots of healthy stuff for those who can resist the pancake stacks or Domanis' big breakfast. This hearty kick-start to the day features the best chipolatas in town along with bacon, eggs, tomato, mushrooms, hash browns and toast.

Domanis' lunch and dinner menus offer steak, seafood and speciality Italian dishes made from the freshest local produce. Indulge in prawns, scallops, calamari, fish and mussels or sample the delights of the double-roasted free-range duck. The steaks are cuts of top quality beef, cooked to suit each diner's preference. Signature dishes include fettuccini marinara – a delicious concoction of fresh seafood and homemade pasta tossed through white wine and olive oil or tomato napoli. The sizzling garlic king prawns are fresh from the trawler and served in traditional Italian style. Domanis' location in the heart of the Main Beach dining precinct ensures it is one of the Gold Coast's favourite places to drink, dine and be seen.

Domanis was a fantastic little find while we were holidaying in a nearby hotel at Main Beach. Great hot breakfasts, fantastic half price dinners and a great bar to stop by for a drink in the evenings too – practically lived here while we were in town! Definitely recommend
hellio - 10/07/2012
The food was average and extremely expensive. We had passed the restaurant that morning and after being assured the menu was half price that evening we booked. When we got there we were told only for orders taken before 6pm. We arrived at 6pm. The service and food was average. The waitress couldn't understand English either. Our table was uneven and couldn't be addressed.

Always fantastic food in one of the best spots on the Tedder Ave dining strip. Can't fault the service either, Domani's is a must-visit Gold Coast restaurant icon.
