We had just a light dinner, the excellent Seafood Dynamite and not-to-be-missed Tuna Poke. It was opening day for this season but the service was excellent. We were glad to see Alex back and working very hard to get things rolling. We’re definitely going back.

I went for the Friday night all you can eat Fish & Chips. They were good, but I've had better. Next time I'll try a Mexican dish. The service was good and the restaurant ambience was good. It's a nice night out.

We make it a point to visit El Dinamita whenever we stay at The Grand Luxxe. The very simple and rustic outdoor setting is perfect for a delicious, relaxed meal. Prices are ridiculously inexpensive for the quality and variety of meals offered. We usually order...More

El Dinamita is our "go to" restaurant when we are in Nuevo. There is something for everyone but main dishes are fish. The service is always first class. It is great to see the same faces year after year who remember you as their guest!...More
