Nearly 2 years ago I had a bad dining experience at Domani's, both with the food and staff. Since then they have moved across the road, and during my stay in the area I noticed that the restaurant seemed to be popular so I decided to give it another go. I'm glad I did, because on the 2 occasions I... More

We've been before a couple times and enjoyed it - and today didn't disappoint. We arrived after 1pm without a booking and a table was found for 6. The wait staff were fabulous - the food and the wine selection was perfect. I had salmon followed by a very decadent chocolate fondant. The salmon was cooked beautifully and was light... More

We went here on Saturday night for a birthday dinner to celebrate my mothers 84 th birthday. The food was very nice but we found the staff a little "too" nice.

We visited twice in September last year and were very impressed so decided to return recently. One of the benefits is the kid menu, where you can actually get vegetables (truffle mash!).
