Donovans’ exciting menu has been developed with Gail and Kevin’s knowledge of modern cooking coupled with an Italian influence from their talented Head chef Emma D'Alessandro. The menu is extensive with a modern mix of favourite dishes emphasising the best local produce. Donovans also offers an extensive wine list of Australian and imported wines and an eclectic mix of cocktails.
Our daughter’s 13th birthday. The bomb Alaska was great as a birthday cake.
Terrific place to have a high end meal.
Excellent meals and drinks.
Environment was very relaxing and chilled.
Service couldn't have been any better.
Not as many vegetarian options as I'd hoped for.
Best touch was remembering it was our anniversary and writing it on our dessert.
Wish it was a tad cheaper. It’s only for people who can spare it that’s for sure
Fantastic meal at Donovans. Fresh fish was the best we had anywhere during our 3 week stay in Australia. Staff were excellent and dealt really well with my food allergies.
As always Donavans is great place to have lunch, dinner. I love the ambient, food is fantastic and my young overseas friend was impressed, specially with Bombe Alaska. Hope to return very soon, thank you!
We are always made to feel welcome, like we are visiting old friends. The atmosphere and the staff are always attentive, polite and cheery. Highly recommend to anyone.
Amazing dinner. Outstanding food and wines. Exceptional service. Definitely returning
Beautiful food, the only slight negative was both my entree and main could've been hotter. Still highly recommend this restaurant.
This is a restaurant with style, the food and its presentation, the staff an so is the décor. I had not been there for over ten years but after this visit I will be going there more often.
We booked two friends from Montreal into D’s for lunch on Thursday last for two reasons: we hadn’t been there for ages, two, it’s the best Bay view of all.
The meal was outstanding, everyone enjoyed their choices, the service discreet and professional and our friends wowed by the outlook. Very happy Vegemites!
Unfortunately the wine list is universally expensive, which creates a negative to the overall experience.
College graduation luncheon.
Fantastic location for romantic dinner at sunset, e.g. grilled seafood with champagne! Gastronomically not the best value for money..., but kind service.
Beautiful food and amazing service! The agnolotti in particular was delightful and the staff gave us complimentary chocolates for my father’s birthday!
Donovan’s is always good. Great food, good vibe and excellent service. We always go there for special occasions! Emma
Always a good place for family and friends. Kid friendly
We had a fabulous pre-Christmas lunch. We always enjoy our time at donovans and yesterday was no exception. Great food, wine and atmosphere.
Glad we brought jackets as the table was right under the aircon vent which created a cold draught. Food was OK but didn't match the price. Scollops were small and roast potatoes too salty.
Donovans is the best place to have lunch or dinner. amazing place, fantastic food and absolutely special people
Stunning cuisine as usual, excellent service, and the ambience is wonderful.
Super disappointed. Been going annually for years but this time it was like a different place. I think they are cashing in on the brand. Food ordinary. Service bad. Expensive.
Great food, great atmosphere, exceptional service & family friendly...Well Done Donovans🙌
Alles super... gerne wieder 👍🏼
A great night. Were celebrating our first wedding anniversary. We had a great table with a view of the bay. A few storms on the horizon were spectacular and created a terrific sunset.
Fantastic service, great food and a wonderful wine choice. Would definitely recommend.
We celebrated our daughters highschool results here. It was a momorable evening.
It's always an amazing time at Donovans.
The staff constantly work together to make the entire time feel effortless. Everyone is welcoming, warm and helpful.
It was my partner's birthday dinner, and we had a beautiful seat in the corner window. For dessert we got to have an even cozier setting near the fireplace, whilst we enjoyed the delectable Boma Alaska. Donovans made the night perfect, and a cherished memory.
Thank you so much for the most wonderful evening.
Never fails to impress - great service! Everyone needs to eat here at least once -
We celebrated our wedding anniversary at Donovan's. The food was very good and the service excellent, but I couldn't help feel it was overpriced. It was enjoyable to go there once and enjoy the fabulous view, however I doubt we'll go back.
Went for our anniversary, after our meal which was delicious but very filling we didn’t have the room to order a desert. They still brought us out a complimentary plate of sweets with Happy Anniversary beautifully written in chocolate. Incredible service and excellent food. I believe the wine list is a bit over-priced but I still feel they delivered for the overall price tag! Loved it
Great view, friendly staff, good food, small portions, pricy
This restaurant continues to be a favourite, lovely in the warmer months by the water and cosy in winter. Staff are always very attentive and friendly, had lunch there over the weekend and ordered the usual leader prawns and some sides, shared the Passionfruit Brulee and Coconut Rough for dessert which were incredible! Quality of food has not changed over the years, highly recommended.
had a great Christmas lunch. Lively atmoshere with a good vibe.
From the time we arrived to the time we left the complete team at this restaurant is Outstanding A++
Great food and fantastic service. Highly recommend for a special occasion!
Very nice stylish place. The food was overpriced for the taste.
Very nice lunch! Worth the expense. A real treat. Would return on my next visit to Melbourne.
Sensational and memorable experience. Attentive staff and beautiful food.
Great experience, food fantastic, great ambience, service very good
what a gem - food was outstanding , so the service and atmosphere - we loved everything - thank you
Outstanding service, amazing toffee martini and magnificent food, especially the Bombe Alaska.
Highly recommend Donovans.
