Dias remains a favorite! Great food, good service - even when they are busy and friendly staff! The Espetada is te main reason I eat there and this time the beef was particularly tasty!

I was invited to celebrate a friend's special birthday. She requested a 60's theme. On the same evening patrons were dressed in pirates, nurse, doctor, princess outfits, the table next door was a batchelors. Festivities were in full swing. The service and food was excellent, the vibe and music was intoxicating. I will definitely go back.

Our most recent (regular) visit to the Dias was yet once again one that most other more pretentious restaurants should strive for - fabulous ambiance, excellent food, real personalized service, great prices - it never over promises but invariably always exceeds in succeeding.

Great place to eat and hang out after a show at The Fugard Theatre. Lively environment, great menu, good staff and often a chance to hear some live music.
