“Go at Sunset”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2014

Nice upper end restaurant right on a beautiful little cove. Go early about 5:30 to 6 so you can enjoy the sunset. The menu is a perfect mix of local and fresh caught fish and authentic Tico items. We tried a nice Chilean wine and were very pleasantly surprised. The service could not have been better, they even has some mosquito repellant for one of our party who had forgot to put it on. It is very reasonably priced for the quality and experience of eating there. Make reservations.

“Intimate setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2014

Porque no is such a cute little resturant right on the water. We went here for dinner and enjoyed watching the massive waves crash agaist the rocks along the shore line.
The staff was very friendly and efficient, and the menu was loaded with so many options! It was hard to actually pick something:)

Thanks for the visit to the restaurant and the kind words.

Glad you liked our little restaurant...even in the rainy weather the water against the rocks makes it interesting. Hope to see you again sometime.
