Description: Within the Costa-Paraiso boutique hotel, just two km South of Dominical, Por Que No is one of the region's best dining experiences, with an ocean view. With 'tasty treats & funky beats', Por Que No is known for our great dinner specials, delicious wood-fired pizza, healthy smoothies and hit the spot coffees.

We were in Dominical for 8 days, and had the privilege of staying at Costa Paraiso. While we could've eaten anywhere, we ate 90% of our meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) at PorqueNo simply because they were the best. Everything was so delicious- the smoothies, ALL the breakfast menu, the ceviche, the pizzas... it was a struggle every meal to decide what to eat. Combine that with the super friendly, attentive and laid back staff and the LOCATION that can't be beat...Why Not? Every table has great views of the waves crashing on the rocks, the landscaping is beautiful....
Make sure you make a reservation for dinner, and prepare to be impressed.

Good food in a great setting. Our group of 6 sat upstairs by ourselves, so it was like having a private dining experience overlooking the water on our last night in town. I would recommend this place to anyone in the area.

They put us upstairs in a private deck area and had great service and delicious food. The snapper was awesome. Sauces were excellent.

I will be back.

Dined there last night and was pleasantly surprised that the restaurant could live up to its high reviews! The food was delectable; I tried (and recommend) the coconut ceviche and Caribbean chicken. I am eager to go back during the daytime to try the rest of the menu and see the beach, but even after sunset the ambience was ideal and tranquil with the sound of the waves hitting the rocks of Dominicalito meters away.
