10/10 hands down. I have traveled to 10+ countries. Dias Tavern has amazing peri-peri chicken (the baby chicken is huge), fries, and espatada's.

My client and I arrived to discuss our next business trip. My client is a regular and brought me to the bar for "the better service". We enjoyed a few beers while catching on the latest sports scores. We eventually ordered lunch, without viewing the menu, going by the bartenders advice, according our desire for meat, fish, etc. I choose fish and received a nicely prepared kingklip, the catch of the day. The klinklip was accompanied by traditional Portuguese rice. The lunch was delightful and perfectly portioned.

Been here many times, this place has been going for years. Friendly staff and owners very helpful and friendly. Great Portuguese cuisine. Owned by Portuguese. Food is good. My favourite is the espetada. Love this place over a weekend as its always busy and vibey with live music. You have to book in advance otherwise you won't get seating. Decor is very old school but there is no need for poshness. The food and entertainment is super. Never disappointed.
