“Excellent food fantastic service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012 via mobile

We read about this on tripadvisor and I can say everyone is right. This place is fantastic. They tailor the food to your preferences and w a seafood allergy for one of us this was important. Could not have been a better meal. Just wish a couple of chain smokers had not put up wind from us so the fan blew their smoke at us the second half of the evening. But oh well it's true in Europe too. It won't stop us from going back. Alex even recommended we go to La Cruz on Sunday for the Sunday street fair - food, art, crafts. He was right it was great.

“Delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

This is my 4th trip to the P.V., Mexico. A local recommended it to us. The atmosphere, taste, presentation, quality, cleanliness and especially the service was phenomenal. I would definitely recommend this restaurant and plan on returning.

“Good Food, Good Service, Pleasant Outdoors”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

El Dinimita is another one of the many new restaurants in Nuevo Vallarta. My wife and I, along with long time friends from Leon, Guanajuato, tried this restaurant for the first time and found it to be very good. The dining options were varied and everything we tried was excellent. The service from Jorge, our waiter, was good and the outdoor atmosphere was very pleasant. We will return on our next trip to Nuevo Vallarta.

“Personalized service & tasting menu”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

Jorge & Alex are amazing with customers and selected a myriad of dishes to suit everyone's preferences. We loved it so much the first time, we returned for another dinner on the last night of our trip. Take their recommendation and share dishes at your table as you'll enjoy more delicious food this way. Will definitely return again & again! I liked it better than Fajita Republic that is right next door and owned by the same owner.

“So much food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

First of all, unless you're starving- bypass the chips and salsa so you'll have enough room for what is coming afterward. We visited 11/8. As you've probably read in other reviews, we too were asked about what we liked. We received the dynamite appetizer which is very good. We also mentioned we like scallops and we received a very tasy dish and the scallops were very fresh. Then we received tacos then the boiling lava rock dish with meat and cheese. Oh my goodness, it was amazing. You will definitely have hot food throughout your meal. The cheese sauce will still be bubbling 30-45 minutes after you receive it. Its an amazing experience and the wait staff is very nice. Just be sure to pace yourself.
