    Dress code for dinner at Divi/Tamarijn

    Hi, Is there a dress code for dinner at the Divi/Tamarijn restaurants? Can men wear nice shorts and a polo shirt or are pants required?

    Yes- nice short and shirt at the ala carte restaurants. We also saw a lot of men this past trip just wearing t-shirts to dinner.

    Buffet for breakfast, lunch and dinner requires shoes and cover up.

    Additional info Divi Resort Dress code

    once while enjoying dinner at the paparazzi, we watched the manager ask a patron to remove his ball cap in the restaurant.

    wearing a decent shirt and removing one's ball cap is not too much to ask while dining is it?

    I would have enjoyed SEEING IT.

    You are absolutely right.
    Wearing baseball caps to dinner here in Georgia is fairly common.
    The types of restaurants we are referring to, a t-shirt is acceptable, but imo, a ball cap indoors while eating is plain poor manners.

    I definitely agree that there should be no t-shirts/caps at dinner. That's not my style anyway so I should be okay. My main concern was about needing long pants. Sounds like I don't need them. That's a good thing. Nothing worse than having to wear long pants in the summer. Although a Jacket and tie would be even worse...

    thanks!

    dress coe


    To tell you the truth some men wear their hats religously, and let's face it we're not in church. My fiance says he ages wicked when he takes his hat off, and he has been at the Tam several times, not a problem.. Everyone knows him by name..

    And thats what we love about the Tam, it's pretty easy going, besides we are on vacation.. And the chef wears a hat. If people are bothered by simple things, maybe they should go somewhere else.. Dont let the little things bother you..

    You are right! It never bothers me to see people wearing hats in restaurants. I don't see the big deal with it. I know I said it's not my style but I will admit I have worn hats in restaurants before but 99% of the time I don't. Not a big deal to me. Some places require long pants or Jackets/ties etc... I say wear whatever you want!!! Life is too short to sweat the small stuff!!!
