Mexican Food: This place is totally outside. If it rains you will have problems keeping your food dry. The food is to die for and the ambiance fantastic. One of our favorite places. Been here 4 or 5 times now and never have I been disappointed. If the waiter suggests something from the menu or not from the menu for that matter. Always get it! It is a wonderful surprise. Pablo De Leon is a wonderful waiter and if your lucky enough to get him your dinner will get a little entertainment with it as well. Some of my favorites are Dynamite rice, The Molcajete bowl, Ceasers salad

Just returned from dinner at El Dinamita. The food and service were both excellent. Being first time visitors, the dishes we selected included various fish, chicken and prawn recipes that were recommended to us by the host in order to meet our specific tastes. They exceeded our expectations. The fried ice-cream desert along with a generous Kahlua was the perfect gastronomic terminator! We would heartily recommend this restaurant to all who enjoy good food, prompt friendly service at a very reasonable price. A memorable experience.

While I'm sure they do it this way to appear totally customized but actually it makes it easier to present a limited range of dishes.....not a negative as it makes it cool not to know what is coming next. The service was good and friendly. The food was well prepared, with the only negative being that it came really really quickly.....to the point that they could have sold us more drinks by being more leisurely on the timing. Maybe others like it fast and they are catering to the majority but it was a slow night and they didn't need to turn the table that quickly to get a lineup in.

We were here in January 2014. This is strictly an outdoor restaurant and the setting was perfectly lovely. We had a larger group and the manager recommended that we tell himm our likes and dislikes and they would decide on the menu and serve us family style. It was really fun not knowing what might come out next. We only had one small issue, the food came out a little fast, they could slow that down a little. Also, be forewarned that they only take cash, no credit cards. We all enjoyed our evening and loved the food! Would definitely return if I make it back to Nuevo Vallarta!

We found this restaurant by mistake looking for the recommended Fajita Republic. We were not disappointed. We wanted shrimp prepared to our liking and the chef did an excellent job! The shrimp was perfectly cooked. We had recommended appetizers including tuna ceviche. We also had a steak dish in the boiling caldron of sauce and cheese, again the steak was so very tender and cooked to a perfect medium rare as requested. We are just sad that we found this restaurant the night before we left. We will be back!
