PorQueNo? is a MUST TRY if you are ever in the Dominical region. Its beautiful view (incredible sunsets) and extremely relaxing atmosphere, make it a great place to eat. If you are a pizza lover (actually, even if you do not like it) you have got to try their pizza! You will likely fall in love. *Don't forget to make... More

We had 2 families with children ages 7 - 18 on our recent trip to Costa Rica. On our last night (Easter), we decided to head to a nice restaurant. We had difficulties "dropping in" without reservations for our large group on prior nights, so I checked the reviews on Trip Advisor and saw this restaurant and made the call.... More

This is by far our favorite restaurant in Domincal, possibly anywhere. The scenery is gorgeous. Had breakfast, lunch, and dinners here during our honeymoon. The french toast is divine. We were served multiple times by Vico, who is awesome. We always sat at the same table, which is in a part of the restaurant called "The Ranch", which looks onto... More

This was our second trip to ¿Por que no?, and we believe that it is one of the rare finds along the South Pacific Coast. The restaurant has one of the most beautiful settings that you could possibly imagine, perched above the rocky coastline of the north end of Dominicalito. About 2 km south of the town of Dominical, there... More

My wife and I are on holiday/vacation in Dominical and saw good reviews on trip adviser for this restaurant so we had lunch today. We were very pleased with the food and the service. Lovely backdrop overlooking Dominicalito beach. We were shown around afterwards by Erick. We will be back very soon for lunch and dinner. Many thanks

Excellent from beginning to end. The beautiful view added to the relaxing laidback atmosphere. We stayed a quick walk down the beach from the restaurant so were able to dine here a few times. Breakfast and dinner were always right on , and surpassed other local eateries in taste and service. Ceviche was the best we ever had and the... More
