The food here is excellent, but they are not taking credit cards right now. It has stopped us from going back, because we don't want to deplete our cash. Dependable excellent food however.

George our waiter created the best meal of our trip and the atmosphere was terrific on the just right tropical evening. We plan on going back before we end our trip.

This was one of the best dining experiences we've had in a while. The weather was perfect to sit outside in the perfect setting. Jorge took great care of us. I LOVED the fact that we didn't even look at a menu and he just asked if we like this or that and recommended 3 things. Shrimp with rice, fish tacos and hot rock beef. Then came back with a price that was almost as good as the food! Oh..and they served chips and "real" salsa! (we're from Texas.) The different sauces were so awesome. We will be going back this week before we leave. Our daughter had the ice cream and even that was unbelievably good and homemade! our drinks were great too. Way to go Dinamita!

I won't be redundant. What everyone else says is true. So far, this is the best restaurant I've been to in Nuevo Vallarta. A couple of notes. 1) they are NOT currently accepting credit cards. It's a temporary thing they said. 2) dinner for 2, with appetizers and 3 glasses of sangria came to $52. I thought it was fair to charge us double that for the type of experience we had. I rarely return to a restaurant while on vacation but my wife and I are returning. Do not miss out on this place!

Although they have a paper menu they do things a little different there: the server will ask you what kind of food you like and dislike and will recommend something custom for your meal. We thought it was a great alternative to ordering from a menu and a nice change. We had Jorge and he truly made our evening special! The food was very good as was the service. The setting was also very charming: outdoors dining under the trees. With drinks, meals and a digestive we paid about $60/couple.
