Money or Gold is very important in Dave the Diver since you will use it for pretty much everything, including decor for your sushi restaurant, upgrades for your gear, etc. In this Dave the Diver guide, we go over some tips and tricks that will help you earn money or gold faster in the game.


Tips For Making Money (Gold) In Dave The Diver

The following are some tips for making money or gold in Dave the Diver.

Serve The Customer

This is a no-brainer, but it is one of the main ways in which you will need to make money, especially in the early parts of the game. Not only do you get paid for the service, but the quality of service as well. When diving, bring back a variety of fish so that you have a variety to offer the customer. The more variety of dishes you have, the more customers you will attract, allowing you to make more money.

The game has a food app which is similar to Instagram. Customers will come in, have your food and post pictures of your food online as well as reviews. The better you serve the customer, the better reviews you get, and this will allow you to attract more customers. That is the power of social media.

Sell Items To Cobra

Progress the game, and you will unlock Cobra’s premium shop. This does not take too long to unlock. Once unlocked, you will be able to sell pretty much anything that you were not able to sell before. You can pick up items and sell them consistently to make some gold.

Enhance Recipes And Research

We recommend enhancing recipes and researching better recipes. Better dishes will make customers happier, and they will leave satisfied. Enhanced dishes cost more since more ingredients are used to make them, so you will make more money. Every single recipe can be enhanced as long as you have the ingredients. Be sure to check for pots when you are diving to get the ingredients that you need.

Hire Staff ASAP

You need to hire staff as soon as possible. Once you complete the quest for Yoshi where you provide a shark’s head. Staff is going to help you cook food faster and serve guests. This will keep guests from storming out. Customers that order drinks tend to get upset fairly quickly, and it is nice to have staff to tend to them quickly rather than losing a customer and losing money.

You will need to pay some money upfront to hire staff, and it does take a day to hire staff, but it is going to be worth it in the long run.

Complete VIP Side Missions

At times a VIP is going to come to your restaurant and ask for a special order. Some players tend to skip these to progress the main storyline. We recommend completing the VIP’s orders since they can be very rewarding.

Catch High Quality And Rare Fish

The higher the quality of the fish and its rarity will dictate how much it is going to sell for. The better the quality and rarity, the higher the price that you can charge for it. If you only use common fish, then you are not going to make a lot of money.

Use The Auto Supply Feature

At the start of the game, Bancho makes it clear that food is not reused. This means that if there is something on the menu that has been cooked and no one ordered it, then it will go to waste. To keep your resources from being wasted, you should use the auto supply feature. This is kind of like made-to-order, and resources will not be used unless a customer orders a dish. This will save you a lot of resources.
