At O Dinis we pride ourselves on serving authentic Portuguese cuisine made with only the finest and freshest ingredients.
While our menu features classic dishes and favorites that are available every day, you’ll find our specials change quite frequently based on seasonally available produce and especially on what the boats brought into the docks that morning for local fish and shellfish. Many of our guests come for the specials and know that fresh fish make up a large portion of our choices each day.
Some of the dishes you may find on any given day include black sea bass, red perch, hake, swordfish, tuna, and salmon. We also have Cuttlefish on special often when it is available.
O Dinis is also known for the following traditional specials, but please understand, like the fish specials, they may or may not be offered based on what is available:
Sopa do Dia ~ Soup of the day
Please ask for the soup of the day – changes daily
Tripe & Beans OR Feijoada*
Polvo Guisado ~ Braised Octopus*
