Our friends who have a place on the island booked a party of 23 and the service and food were outstanding!! It is a family owned restaurant and that hands on approach is evident from the onset. We enjoyed the food so much a few of us returned for breakfast the following morning!

If it weren't for the mosquitoes, the outdoor dining area was incredibly cool, with a ivy-covered wall, deck-styled furniture, and it sits outside of a screened bar area that plays (what sounded like) adult contemporary music. The food was good, and reasonably priced. The service was very good.

We had been to Dajio previously and decided to go back on this trip. We had a big lunch and decided to go for the 3-5 shrimp special. My husband and I both ordered the shrimp and a salad to go with it. We ate on the patio because we travel with a dog He was made totally comfortable and... More

Dajio was recommended by our hotel staff and did not disappoint. My wife and I ordered the fresh shrimp during the special they have from 3:00 - 5:00. Unbelievable in taste and quality. And a friendly waitress added to our enjoyment.

From 3pm to 5 pm you can order 1/2 lb of steamed shrimp for $6.25. I ordered a side salad to go with it. Both were delicious. Liked the fact that there are 3 dining spots. I had been on the beach so the bar option was great for me. Next time I'll try the restaurant and the pizza.

We loved this restaurant! Our family sat on the patio for dinner and it was wonderful. Service was great and food was above average. They also had what looked like a cool bar!

The food here was so good we went back a second time. This place is pet friendly and you could tell as they brought a bowl of water for our dog before ours, which we thought was great. Had the tempura fried red snapper and omg so good! The second time I had the filet mignon which came with mushrooms... More
