“Top notch service and food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

Went to Victor's on the recommendation of a friend and what a great experience! Victor, the owner, was out there personally greeting all of his guests and thanking them for coming. We were served a healthy serving of nacho chips and pico de gallo as soon as we came in, and every time we ordered a drink we got a tequila shot with it! My enchiladas were delicious, and I tried a bit of the octopus cooked in garlic and butter and OMG it was so tender and delicious you'd never know you were eating octopus. Yum. Everyone loved their food and had a great time. The service was friendly and attentive. I now have a go-to restaurant when I'm back in PV, thanks Victor's for the great experience!

“Great food, great atmosphere, great service! I'll be back!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

We ended up at Victor's, as a friend who had been here before loved it and chose it for dinner for a group of us. I was definitely not disappointed. The location is beautiful, right on the water and the staff was very friendly and we were seated right away. We were served nachos and drinks with some free tequila, which Victor himself, will come drink with you! Our meals were all excellent, and very reasonably priced. We were also given some complementary drinks for dessert. Overall, the experience was great, I'll be back.

“A Fun Atmosphere With Free Tequila”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

Enjoyed an evening meal at Victor's while vacationing at Nuevo Vallarta. Enjoyed the outdoor seating and view of the docks. Victor is legendary for providing free tequila shots to his patrons and will often take a shot as well. Each drink that was ordered also came with another tequila shot, so it was easy to have a fun, relaxing time as a large group. I ordered a seafood sampler platter and while not everything on my plate was top-notch, the food was above average. Many at my table ordered the Red Snapper and stated it was very good. Remember, if you go to Victor's, be ready to grab the salt and lime.

“back again”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

Have been to Victors several times through out the years and just returned again from another great time, good food and a view to die for. Located on the marina, Victor will stop at your table and loves to hear that you have returned again. He will offer to buy you a shot of Tequila and have one with you if you are so inclined and he will probably stop again through out your dinner and do it again. He will likely buy you a desert drink as well. The food and the staff are also excellent and strive to keep you happy. I would highly recommend.
