Stopped in for a late lunch and was not disappointed. Ate inside as it was a scorcher of a day. I had the wahoo dinner plate which was spot on. Son had the fish tacos and he said they were very good. Always a good meal!

If you go between three and five, you can order peel and eat shrimp for about $6 per half pound. We did that around 3:30, expecting the restaurant to be dead, but it actually started filling up pretty quickly once we sat down. Service was good, wine selection was good, but the shrimp was wonderful! Very well seasoned for steamed... More

This place was a little confusing at first because of the setup. The seafood restaurant is on the left. The bar and outside dining is in the middle and the pizza shop was on the right. We just walked up to the pizza window and places our order. The gentleman that waited on us was very friendly and told us... More

First of all, we were given the worst table in the place (thought others were open), in the middle of a small room next to the kitchen, so traffic, traffic, traffic! The kitchen door kept getting left open and it was loud in there. The hostess acted like we were a bother. I was with 4 teens, and they seemed... More

It was nearing the end of the day, 6'ish, (since my Mom is 85), and we wanted to go somewhere that was relatively quick, but had good food. We walked in and chose to sit in the nice, little, outdoor, but enclosed area. We ordered the tuna salad, (fresh tuna steak), and it was so good that Mom finished her... More

Grilled sword fish sandwich was excellent but way over priced. Service was slow. Not sure I will return. Seating was tight. Sat us right next to someone who kept leaning over our table.

The food at Dajio is ALWAYS excellent, but lunch for the 4 of us, 2 under 14, was particularly special today. The service was funny and fast, the prices were reasonable, and the food was out of sight. Few places on the island are as fun for drinks late, but a visit to the restaurant midday or for dinner is... More

Staff is wonderful. Loved the shrimp and the fried wontons. Cute place and would recommend. We had a spill and they were very quick to pick up and move us to another table. Hope to come back soon.
