Service was good, staff were helpful with table change, selecting wine & choosing what to eat. Food menu wasn’t huge but adequate & we only purchased snacks & a charcuterie board but it was fresh & tasty. The ambience was great sitting outside in the alleyway. It wasn’t noisy & the alleyway is wide so passer-by’s didn’t infringe upon the outdoor tables. A great place to have a drink & comfortably be able to have a conversation. We will be back

Despite what this app says- Customs House Bar does not take bookings- BEWARE. I booked a table for 6 people- confirmation sent to my phone. Staff say they do not take bookings and were quite offhand about the fact. Luckily we got a table so it worked out well. Bar itself is good, nice to sit outside, drinks reasonable.

Incredible service by the workers. I appreciate all their hard work. The gnocchi was the best I ever had. The flavour profile was so nostalgic for me but still so new and fresh. Could not recommend this place enough. Highly recommend their smoke salmon pasta as well. Hats off for the chef. One of the best places I’ve been in Melbourne. Quiet, wonderful and peaceful ambience that reminds me of a family home.

About the restaurant
Doms is a no frills, 3 level pizza wonderland from the crew that bought you Peaches, Cheek, Dexter & Takeaway Pizza.
After so many months of lockdowns, Doms represents everything that owners Sam, Tom and Adam craved - a return to the basics of hospitality. The makeover of Cheek and Peaches was designed to promote a warm sense of nostalgia and indulge the passions of the team... GOOD PIZZA, GOOD WINES, GOOD TIMES.

Level 1 - Pizzeria/Restaurant
Level 2 - Pool Room
Level 3 - Walk-in Outdoor Rooftop Bar

Dining at Doms - warm textures of natural timber, plush royal blue carpet and brass. It's old school and inviting. A menu of slow fermented wood fired sourdough pizza, alongside tasty snacks and a very deep wine list. The perfect venue for that date, that birthday, that catch up. Social, familiar, honest and good. Hot tip: drink Lambrusco, eat the salami!

Yummy pizza’s with not your typical toppings. We had the Mozzarella Croquettes as tasters and they were gooey and delicious. Then we shared 3 pizzas (including a Margarita pizza, Pork & Pumpkin and the third had a Salami with a bit of a kick but not sure if it was a special or on the standard menu) between 4 adults and that was more than ample. Espresso martini’s were excellent too!

A celebration of Sherry, Wine, Tapas, & Friends. Influenced by the culture of sip-a-little-bit-of-this-and-eat-a-little-bit-of-that, Tapavino began in August 2012 as Australia’s first Sherry Bar in Sydney, in a little lane-way not unlike something you would find in the cobblestoned alleyways of Spain. Helped by the beautiful warm vibe that greets you as you step inside and take a seat among floor-to-ceiling wine bottles, Tapavino was named runner-up in Sydney Morning Herald's 'Best New Bar' Awards within 4-months of opening. 12-months later we were named 'Best Bar with Food'.
