Located right at the beach, Dino's is great for a night out and even sundowners. They have a good menu for food too and there was a beach part when we were there - great vibe

Great atmosphere - laid back too. Good food at reasonable prices. Stunning view and lots of whales to see when we were there

Our group landed on Dinos for a few hours for a few beers and a dance. The music was pretty good and we were there for a couple of hours. Plenty of locals to hang out with.

On the 5th April, 2013, my family,a party of 11 people, arrived in Tofu, hungry and really looking forward to lunch.Dino's had been recommended and we certainly weren't disappointed with the views over the beach and the vibe of the place. After placing our orders, a mix of pizzas, medium prawns and calamari, we sat back enjoying our drinks which arrived fairly promptly.
Alas, an hour and three quarters later we were becoming fed up and just at the point where we were becoming disgruntled the food arrived. The pizzas were paper thin, full of oil,and very little on top. The prawns were minute - not much bigger than shrimps, also swimming in oil and garlic, which wouldn't have been a problem if one could have eaten them without mouthfulls of shells. The calamari steaks were even worse as they had been charred and were really tough. It was very obvious that the kitchen had a real problem that day and the food had not been cooked by anyone competent.
Without making an big fuss I went to the Manager and complained that the service and the quality of the food was seriously a problem. He immediately became very defensive and after making a cursory effort to look over the table , shrugged his shoulders and said that everyone else loved his food and he couldn't understand why we weren't equally impressed, and even had the temerity to tell me that Dino's isn't a fast food restaurant! Because it was evident that he wasn't particularly interested and the fact that we were all starving we tried to munch what was there, but most of it was left on the plates and returned to the kitchen.
When the bill arrived it was for 4810mets( V/D No: 5687) (around R1604). A ridiculous amount for such an awful meal, and worse still that the Manager had made no attempt to address our complaint. Tofu is such an exquisite setting, but Dino's should keep in mind that slow service and bad food combined with ripping off the hand that pays for it leaves an incredibly sour taste. We would never recommend this establishment to anyone .

This is a nice bar located on the dunes in Tofo. It is mainly geared towards the younger visitors to Tofo with a trendy bar, disco lights and music but once at the bar you find all age groups there. We sat outside on the veranda to have our first dinner in Tofo. Have eaten there before and once again Dino's pizza did not disappoint. The base is the thinnest I have ever found and the toppings are generous. It is well priced and the atmosphere is great. The view from the veranda over the sea is great and that night we had a moonlit view. However you will have difficulty reading the menu as there is no lights there. Ask them for a candle and they will bring one to you. It will not come automatically. The place is very clean and well kept.
