Owner's description

Dias Tavern offers an experience not usually sought by diners. It is informally decorated with plastic placemats, yet always buzzing with those hungry for the best of Portuguese cuisine. While the venue isn’t much to look at, the menu is what attracts customers with a wide choice of meals including fresh seafood, grilled steaks, trinchado, peri peri chicken and many other traditional favourites. If you feel like having a good meal without any of the bells and whistles, Dias Tavern is the place.

    Perfect local Portuguese spot. Super friendly and knowledgeable staff, cold draught beers, and good Portuguese classic fare. Always busy, with locals and walk-ins alike. For your main - the ‘Joe special’ - calamari, trinchado and chips is a winner. Share a few starters - Deep fries tentacles, the peri peri chicken livers and/or giblets plus the sardines are all firm favorites.
    A perfect place to pop in before enjoying a show at the adjacent Fugard theatre. Enjoy the same cuisine that has had patrons returning for over 25 years. Anything from the popular Joe's special (Trinchado and Calamari) to the firm favorite, Portuguese steak, served on a skillet with peri peri, Chorizo, egg, chips and fried tomato. Good vibes on Fridays and Saturdays with decent live misc.
    My first experience of an authentic Portuguese restaurant. The best fillet steak i've ever had. My friend had the Trinchado, one of his favourite Portuguese dishes, & he was "in heaven". All in all good food, good live music & friendly efficient service from our waiter Moses, ensured an evening to remember.
    Dias Tavern never fails to impress as an all-round dining offering in terms of food, service and ambience. Their prices are fair and the meals are very good. They certainly have a very well-oiled machine running with their operation. We have been there several times (particularly before and after shows at the theatre), and we are always comfortable that our meal will come out in time and be scrumptious. The rustic décor and lovely attitude of the Dias team always make it such a pleasure to go back. One of our favourite spots in Cape Town.
