Hidden away from city tourist traps, Dias is an absolute gem of an old fashioned but top quality restaurant from (possibly) a bygone are of great food and service at very reasonable prices. The starters alone are enough to satify any hearty appetite; the fish platter was quite superb and the service on a very busuy week night friendly, knowledgable and just right. At the weekends (Fri-Sunday) booking is essential, but any night of the week is a winner att Dias!!

Dias Tavern is not exactly on the tourist trail, and doesnt look great from the outside. But the locals frequent this place and you will find out why. If you like fish it is great and very reasonably very priced. The place is simple clean and the service is friendly and professional. I had Kingklip fish and it was perfect. I also understand it has live entertainment on some of the Friday nights but you have to book. Go for it!

Fact: If you haven’t had the trinchados at Dias, you haven’t tasted Cape Town. Will go back again and again.

This is an example of a restuarant that has got it right.The Decor is what it is, but Good, Great, Awesome food and friendly service. I had heard lots about the Tavern and finally I was taken their by friends. We were treated like regulars and I could have had the other half of my peri peri chicken. Definitly put this on your itinarary if you are tired of the fancy expensive white table cloth affair. I'll be back
