Dario’s Café is the perfect place for a tasty breakfast, lunch & supper. The menu is simple but offers good choices including pasta, pizzas & the lemon meringue pie looked delicious. It’s a local hub & we love the lively atmosphere. Which is so refreshing after our lockdown period. Service is efficient, friendly & this cafe offers great value for money. Dario is very hands on and always says “ hi & bye “to his customers. Nothing is too much trouble. Will return soon.

Love this little gem in Hout Bay! I've been to Dario's for dinner a few times and had a brekkie there...food is always fresh and delicious and service friendly! Yesterday I popped in with a colleague for a late working lunch and again, really delicious food, nothing is too much trouble, and everything done with a huge smile! The WiFi worked well for our webinar and we had a great, spacious working space while munching scrumptious flatbreads served with a fresh, Greek salad. I'll be back soon!!!

We popped in here for a late brunch. This is a simple unsophisticated cafe where nothing was too much trouble. The food was excellent, tasty and well presented, the staff were attentive and endless smiles throughout! It is worth a visit just to read the humorous remarks on the back of the menu! An excellent option and very reasonable, - breakfast for 4 with drinks 374 ZAR

Well this was simply average. Sadly the outside deck is situated next to a pub which, let’s just say - is for those members of society not able to afford a drink anywhere else. As for the food, a fairly ok chicken salad and as for the incorrectly menu-spelled jalalpeno burger - give that a miss...

Dario greeted us warmly, made sure we had a table that we linked and fresh water for Charlie (dog). Coffee milkshake was amazing! Enjoyed the Vega - mushrooms, spinach, tomato, onions and beans on a crisp rosti. Atmosphere is great with locals of all ages moving through and tourists feeling at home

Both meals were perfectly acceptable just completely different 24 hours apart! Lunch Friday the piadina was in fact a wrap served with fat chips/salad - delicious! Not quite my understanding/experience of a piadina but good enough that today I suggested to my husband we lunch there. Todays meal was a piadina (as I expect, a thin Italian flat bread folded over) today it was served with less appealing thinner chips - both days the salad was delicious. Not a complaint really just an observation on the lack of consistency and a slight disappointment that I missed out on chunky chips

Bland & Average..Food was tasteless and lacked any imagination and finesse. Everything probably tastes the same - the need to perhaps change the menu or stop serving the food in the same way the have done for 50 years. Its 2023 not 1903.

We had good food and nice drinks! Good place to sit in the shade. There is a parking place right next. The chef of the Café, Dario, was so helpful as we had problems with our UBER driver! It was great and also his staff was supporting us! Thanks again! So we finally could go back safely to Cape Town!

6 or us came to Dario's for Sunday breakfast. We hadn't booked but they were happy to move some tables around to accommodate us. The food was brilliant and then service was friendly and very attentive. They even went the extra mile and sang happy birthday to my father-in-law. We will be back.

Stayed in Hout Bay for a few days whilst on holiday in South Africa. This is one of the best Cafe's, lots of yummy food to choose for breakfast. Staff are so friendly, and the service is great. A couple of my friends even tried Dario's Grappe Friday!! Highly recommend this cafe.

Great brunch place and coffee! Eggs Benedict with salmon and Avo toast were fantastic. Cappuccino and Espresso like in Italy. Very friendly staff and Dario is a hands-on and attentive owner.

We had such a warm welcome and great service from Emma-it was only her second day. Our pizzas were very fresh and delicious. We loved sitting on the terrace at this little gem Can’t wait to come back and try the coffee
