After a morning walk and swim at Dominicalito beach we went to PorQueNo for lunch. I ordered a smoothie with my own choice of juices: coconut, pineapple, and mango. It was absolutely delicious. I had the pork sandwich which was out of this world with a unique topping of coleslaw that had so many different tastes from mango, carrots, the slaw, red pepper, maybe zucchini or something like it, anyway the taste and the texture of my meal was a real treat. The coleslaw was on one bun and the other bun had the pulled pork with a sweet smokey BBQ flavor. I ordered the salad which came with the pork sandwich. More amazing flavors from the ingredients and the dressing. The ambiance is spectacular as the setting is right on the beach with nature all around you, many birds, iguanas, butterflies, so relaxing. Our waiter was attentive making sure we had everything we wanted. I highly recommend PorQueNo. For its amazing food above all else. The best meal I have had in Dominical! Oh, my husband said his lunch was amazing, too!

We chanced upon this restaurant, saw the setting and view, then decided to try lunch there.
The wraps we had were some of the best lunch food we have had in our trip to Costa Rica, tasty, moist and well filled.
The setting is idyllic, with shade if you need it, the service was good and clearly the local residents know the restaurants value as they flocked in after we arrived!
I would wholeheartedly recommend this restaurant.

We were lucky to get reservations at the last minute due to a cancellation and we are delighted. This restaurant is the best around Dominical and well worth remembering to make reservations. I had the blackened Mahi Mahi which was good, I had a bite of snapper, which was even better. Great service at a decent price for a nice evening out.

Glad we were able to fit you guys in. Thanks again for taking the time to fill out a review.

There are a lot of great options for fish here in Costa Rica - the mahi mahi and snapper are both quite popular dishes.

Hope to see you again.

We had a wonderful opportunity to dine at PorQueNo several times during our trip to Dominical. The restaurant is so special with its gorgeous sunset views over the Pacific. The menu was fresh and flavorful. Having dined there several times we can attest to the consistency as we worked our way through all of the menu choices. Make reservations - they book quickly.
