Staff was very fun, lively and provided prompt service. Live music and dance area which made dinner fun. The paella is well worth the try and a must have just for the show is the Spanish coffee. Amazing fire and liquor showcase by the waiter. Delicious food, great drinks and ambience!

Unfortunately, a few days after our dinner on April 30, Por Que No?, closed for the season. We were told it would re-open around November. The sister restaurant, Eddies II however, remains open (see separate review). For future reference, Por que No? was terrific. Nice setting overlooking the Nuevo marina and a broad menu with a good variety of selections... More

We had heard good things about this restaurant so decided to try it. Our friends said that they ordered the fish and shared a meal. Instead of needing to cut it in half they were giving two small fish instead. Well, we tried the same thing, but were just served one of the tiniest fish you have ever seen so... More

We set our visit up a week because PQN closed after our first visit last year. Unfortunately this year it closed even earlier and we missed it entirely.

We have been going to Por Que No 3 times per week during our trips to Nuevo. The fresh fish, mahi-mahi, red snapper, and tuna prepared several different ways, is excellent and vey reasonable. We love the setting- open air, at the marina with spectacular sunsets and delicious sangria and margaritas! The live music adds a special touch. The waitstaff,... More

Eddie's and Por Que No? are owned by the same person - Eddie! Both have good food, but the atmosphere at Por Que No? was so relaxing and beautiful. On the marina with live music. Eddie's good too, but a more boisterous crowd.

We had the pleasure of having dinner in this restaurant during our stay in Nuevo Vallarta. The food was excellent the atmosphere was out of this world and our server Fernando was fascinating. We will most certainly be back on our next visit to Nuevo Vallarta. Recommended to anyone visiting Nuevo Vallarta. Michelle & Ralf

Sitting on the yacht harbour or in the restaurant very close to the water as well and enjoy the atmosphere. And than you hear a friendly “ how are you doing Amigos” and you know everything will be good. You get a nice cool drink and you look into a small menu. Don’t worry, it is small but very good....

We first ate at Por Que No (PQN) in April 12. See my review on April 17, 2012. We were excited to go back to PQN again as the great food and memories we had from our first visit seemed so fresh in our minds. We ate at PQN this trip on April 14, 2014 and were happy to see... More
