Our Bomba Alaska wasn’t lit up at our table as done previously, was a bit disappointed as had told kids all about it. Was still delicious though.

An institution of Melbourne fine dining! With breathtaking views of the bay, the knowledgeable yet unpretentious staff are welcoming and warm with their service and candor.
As regular customers we are always greeted by name and given exemplary service. The food is impeccably presented and is always of the highest five star standard. The wine list has a multitude of choice from vineyards from across the globe.
A must visit dining experience if you’re ever in Melbourne. 👍

Great quality and taste of seafood but the Alaska Bombe was disappointing in presentation - the main essence of lighting up the dessert was done in the kitchen (out of sight) and we only get to see the chocolate being dripped onto the bombe before getting served.

Everything about this experience was perfect
My partner and I have wanted to dine at Donovans for years but have never been lucky enough to score a table before
From the warm welcome on arrival to the bustle of the elegant dining room to the charming and friendly staff and most importantly to the most amazing delicious food - it was a magical night that we will never forget and one that we look forward to revisiting again
If you get the chance dine at Donovans I guarantee that you will not regret it

We had a hankering for fish and chips and Donovans has a lovely outlook and a lovely dining room. It also has lovely friendly staff who are very attentive and helpful. Donovans also has a very large and diverse menu which one would have to be very picky to not find anything to suit one's taste. Even down to being careful about any fashionable food issues. It has a formidable wine list at formidable prices. I didn't believe that anywhere in Australia would have fish and chips that are more expensive than Doyle's in Sydney, but they do. One up for Donovan's but not for the customer.
Everything was very good. The scallop entrée was delicious and the scallops were perfectly cooked. The fish in the fish and chips were superb. The chips were delicious but were more like roasted potatoes than chips- and served in a quantity that was far too generous.
I'd recommend this place heartily if you're part of the set that takes their bank manager to lunch or dinner.
But the prices are on the uncomfortable side for food and torture on the wine. For example a bottle of William Fèvre Petit Chabils which sells for around $30 retail max, was closer to $80. If you're in the wine trade pop in and have a look - it's heartening to see that that there is still money in wine. At least here. Go for the view, the staff, the choice, the food, but sadly, not the value.

Dining at Donovans was simply divine. any questions we had were answered with expertise and the menu was explained clearly. Attention to detail was thorough, clearing of table and finished dishes all taken away effortlessly and ease. Enjoyed it so much I think I will be back next week.
Thank you Donovans

Donovans is our go to restaurant for special occasions such as, birthdays, anniversaries and other major family celebrations.
The staff are always friendly and welcoming and the ambience of the restaurant is very calming.
We find the food to be excellent and the servings to be reasonably generous.
Overall, the cost of a night out at Donovans is not cheap, but you pay for what you get, which is a great experience.

Relaxed, yet classy interior decor and a prime location right on the beach makes for a lovely vibe, and perfect for a romantic winter night's dining. And, with the excellent service from the moment you're greeted at the door, along with the scrumptious meals on offer, the dining experience at Donovans is most certainly a memorable one.

Food, presentation, and the setting was magical.

The noise level was unpleasant as there was a large party,very close to us. We made the move to the fireplace / sitting room to enjoy a way more pleasant atmosphere, with our dessert and coffee.

The shared roast shoulder of lamb was to die for: unctuous, tender, delicate. Eighteen hours to cook and we are still savouring it in our minds days later. Try it.

Overall we were pleased with our visit but at every meal we had to wait for our drinks. We were seated at the couches for predinner drinks, no one attended us for over 10mins and then we were told our table was ready, so we ordered pre dinner drinks at the table. we ordered a bottle of wine to have with dinner, our dinner arrived and it was nearly 10mins until our wine arrived, which was spilt twice of the table. Then we ordered port and we were left for 15mins with our dessert in front of us and no port. We decided to get the bill and leave.
