From the minute you walk up and get a table until you leave, everyone is making sure that you have a wonderful meal. The food is amazing and the place just has this really cool atmosphere or vibe to it. See you all again next year!!

The seating area is under a very large and interesting tree, a most beautiful setting. The staff will interview you as to food tastes and customize a meal for you. Excellent seafood dishes, excellent service and very reasonably priced.

We took the advice from our surf instructors to try El Dinamita. We were not disappointed. Our waiter created our dinner for us by giving us a wonderful assortment of sample plates. The coconut shrimp was wonderful and the seafood casserole had great flavor. The staff was so helpful and friendly!!! A must do if you are in the area.

This is a quick cab ride from any resort in the Nuevo/Puerto Vallarta area. The food is amazing; I have eaten at many places in Nuevo/Puerto and this place is by far the best! We just returned from a week long trip to Nuevo and we ate here twice. You can either order from menus or they can just bring... More

We were walking to another restaurant when we happened to notice this one. So we decided to stop and try it. The staff greeted us and were very friendly. We got sat and checked out the menu, ordered some drinks and some food. This is an excellent place if you have allergies, or special diet or are just like myself... More

Super place! Good food, great service and what a cool atmosphere. Let them pick the food for you. Try everything. You won't be unhappy. Second visit and we will continue to visit this restaurant. 10 people in our group and all gave rave reviews. Reasonable prices.

First time at El Dinamita, we were seated immediately upon arrival. I can't say enough about the service an early review suggested that the service wasn't great...not sure if they were at the same restaurant we were. We found the service top notch, friendly and very efficient. My husband ordered fish and chips and I had two types of shrimp... More
