Diwo was recommended to us by a local and we were not disappointed. I had the steak that was cooked to perfection with a sauce that was indescribably good. My family had the fish that also looked very good. Diwo is definitely worth a try.

Run by a hardworking and talented couple, this restaurants is dinner-only with a very tasty, creative menu of fresh fish, steak, chicken, pasta, lads, and soups. We enjoyed the red snapper, house recipe hamburger, vegetarian gnocchi, shrimp pasta, and several delicious desserts.
