Description: Celebrating its tenth season now on the island, Dajio showcases the best of Ocracoke’s local ingredients, artisans and musicians. The menu changes with the seasons to bring guests the finest ingredients from sea, farm or garden, at the peak of freshness. Enjoy the air-conditioned interior or alfresco dining on the jasmine-covered patio and lively music at the Dajio bar many summer nights. The menu includes extensive gluten-free and vegetarian options. Bring in your catch and they will cook it for you. At Dajio, we believe that the most memorable meals and evenings start from scratch.

Had a wonderful evening here with good food, service, and entertainment. We were lucky enough to dine on the patio so really felt the island vibe with the breeze and some good music. Food was very good as was the service. This was a busy place but still made for a very enjoyable, laid back mood -- thanks to the staff. My only regret is that we did not go back for a second meal.

FABULOUS! Stopped for lunch while waiting for the ferry. Came back because our visit 1.5 years ago was so memorable!

As it was the first time, the meal, service and experience were wonderful !!!!!

Can't wait till the next time

PS the outdoor eating was cool and comfortable AND PET FRIENDLY! Tessa loved the bowl of ICE water.

In all that's Dajio....excellent!!!!

My husband, 2 year old son & I ate dinner here tonight & were super disappointed. I ordered the fish of the day, which was blue fin & it tasted like canned tuna. My husband ordered the Big Salad - it arrived in a small salad bowl. The waitress said it was the Big Salad & then when my husband questioned her she said it was the house salad. The restaurant itself is dirty & dark. We sat outside & felt like the table needed a candle or some kind of light to see our food. We will not return to this restaurant & would not recommend it to anyone...

We went here last October for our anniversary dinner. We had to wait to be seated and there was only one other table in the restaurant. Food was not that great. And the thing that really upset us is that the staff started putting up chairs on the tables while we were still eating. Don't waste your time going here. You will be disappointed.

I tried the grilled wahoo on ciabatta with the remoulade and homemade potato chips. It was excellent, well worth the price. Other family members ordered burgers and chicken , nothing special but slightly pricey. Atmosphere was great except for flies. Service was friendly and quick except getting our bill because our server ended up with a table of 12 who spoke little English. She handled it well
