Get there for the sunset, stay for desert. We ate every meal at Porqueno.... and plan to do so again when we return to Dominical. The specials were lovely and the breakfast exquisite. We loved each morsel.

Every thing was great the service, the food, the music. We went by taxi and they helped us with transportation back to another venue to continue a memorable evening in this quaint beach town.

We went for both lunch and dinner. The dinner was better than the lunch. The best part of both meals was the dessert. The rest was just OK.

It is impossible to get a better meal, ocean view or ambiance. We had breakfast here twice, and a wonderful dinner. I'm not sure why Jose M had a terrible experience, but based on his failure to even check his spelling, makes me think he you should just discount his review. We had hummingbirds to watch, gecko's to gaze upon,... More

As locals we almost hate sharing this place, but it is so beautiful, and the food is so good that we owe it to 'Por Que No' to tell others about it. This is one of the most beautiful spots on the planet, right on the water, and surrounded by beautiful tropical plants with a terrific menu! Highly recommend for... More

The tropical setting overlooking the waves crashing on the rocks creates a picturesque view from the dining area. The management and staff have... More
