Always fun at Dinamita, sad not to find Jorge there anymore but Anthony created a great meal for the 6 of us, everything he chose was great, we all had something we would order again. It used to be much easier to get there from Mayan resort but now allow 30-40 minutes via taxi. Well worth the effort!

It was the recommendations on TripAdvisor that set us straight and thankfully so. We now have two great options within stones throw. Different kitchens, staff and menus. We got the chef's recommendation for the family which included... More

We literally talk about and anticipate our next visit to el dinamite when we are home. This place never disappoints: the food is always fresh and delicious and the service is outstanding. We will dine there 3 times in 11 days -- it's that good. You can't go wrong.

We loved that we could tell them what we like and don't like, and they would prepare it for us. However, this is an option. We loved what they prepared for us, and they were so nice. It was great food, service and prices. Very uniquie.

The fish is sea bass served hot and very tasty with skinny fries and a great and good helping of... More

Rudy is the best, and he treated us well on both of our visits to El Dinamita! The setting is superb with the glowing lanterns hanging in the trees, cobblestone entrance and winding tree branches all around. The first night my husband and I ordered off the menu. The sea bass was the best I've had, smothered in cheese and... More
