“Excellent food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

We found the restaurant pretty much by accident after Prime 159 was closed for a special event. It was our last night and wanted something a little special and we found the right place.

Decided to have the fixed price meal for two - excellent choice and too much food! Started with a salad, main course included mahi mahi, giant shrimp, along some potatoes. Desert was flan and ice cream.

The food was great and the staff was very attentive. We will return when we are back in May with the family.

“Best dinner yet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

We've been coming to Nuevo Vallarta for about 10 years and every year we try new restaurants. Por Que No was the best dining experience in all our years of dining out. Eddie (the owner) and the wait staff (Ramon, Paco, Pablo, and the others) were excellent and very attentive. The food was outstanding. The prices were typical of fine dining but not unreasonable. They had a great female entertainer with a mellow voice who sang American, Latin, and Mexican songs. The view of the small marina was romantic and make sure to ask the waiters what time they start the "fireworks". Don't miss the "sexy coffee". Our dining was outside patio but they have light fans to enhance the breeze. Tonight we're going to "Eddie's Place". If Por Que No was this great, Eddie's Place must be equally as good.

“Nice New Find in Nuevo Vallarta”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

This restaurant resides where another favorite used to be in the Marina area. We found it by accident and were very happy. It is owned by the fellow who owns Eddie's Place and it is very, very good. The menu is eclectic and is somewhere between Mexican and Continental. We had Mexican dishes (when in Mexico, etc.) and were very pleased. The special soup of the evening which was a Mexican version of Hot and Sour Soup (the Lima fruit and a chile laced chicken broth with chicken and fried noodles) was very tasty. The Shrimp Burrito (Shrimp with a Crab Stuffed Burrito) was excellent as was the Paella (ok, it wasn't all Mexican but the flavors were). The service staff bent over backwards to please. Great place and we will return.

“Overpriced, great location and wonderful staff.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

Atmosphere was friendly and you can't beat the view. We stopped by just for an appetizer since we had already eaten dinner earlier. I had something like a spring roll and my husband had chocolate cake. The spring roll wrapper was too wet. I couldn't pick it up nor cut it up. Eventually, I gave it up and just ate the filling with a fork. My husbands cake however, was outstanding. My husband had a diet coke and I had coffee and water. The bill, including tip, was about $38.00 (US).
