The atmosphere was nice, but bug spray was necessary. Jorge was great, but watch out for the staff. Eight people and the no menus option was okay. Watch the bill. Ours was returned with a missing $20, really?! The waiter pocketed it, three of us counted it. Our $130 promise ended up as $220! Travelers be careful.

What a find! This restaurant made our trip. From the moment we walked in we felt like family. The owner Jorge, took care of us immediately. We never once looked at a menu. He asked us a few questions and then like magic, a meal to remember. My wife who is a picky eater, could not believe how delicious our exotic treats were. You must get the tuna poke and the house special appetizer. Each dish was better than the last. Jorge really cares about his restaurant, diners, and the food. Everything was so great we went back 2 nights later. I can't wait to return in February to see what delicious feast will be cooked up for us next. Oh and the drinks are just as awesome as the food!!

Our concierge recommended this restaurant a few years ago. Now, we make sure we stop here every time we're in PV. We have a son that is a little picky about what he eats, and they very quickly came up with food that he raved about for the rest of the trip. We've never used a menu here and will continue to listen to the recommendations of the staff. We'll be back in PV next year and will definitely be back at El Dinamita.

The raw Tuna appetizer and beef fajitas are amazing.

Everything is so fresh and presented well.

Nice place to go in the evening if you want to get away from the resorts but not make the trip all the way to downtown.
