Dias Tavern has been around forever, over 20 years, so no surprises that its packed most nights, attracted by riotous party noise and laughter, we tried a walk- in on the odd Wednesday or Thursday evening- no luck.
So, we got clever and popped in post lunch, pre-dinner at around 4 pm, there were a few lunch stragglers and some early after work drinkers at the bar, aromatic Portugese cooking smells hung in the air.
I opted for Chicken Livers peri-peri and the art teacher went for a crispy Eisbein and chips. We're fussy with our chicken livers as the art teacher has perfected them, see here- we weren't disappointed.
To kick start your long weekend, start with a drink in the cosy pub at the Castle Hotel, stroll down to satisfy your tummy at Dias, then finish the night at Assembly or the Harley Davidson Club around the corner- isn't Cape Town great?
