My husband and I go to Dias regularly. We have never been dissappointed by the food or the service. The Sole is our favorite and their daily specials are always exciting! Great value for money

During a recent business trip we opted not to eat at hotel but to visit Dias Tavern. Restaurant was fairly busy but staff was very helpful and the food absolutely awesome and very generous portions. Easy parking available opposite restaurant. Well worth a visit.
