We loved Victorias! We are repeat customers and go there every time we visit Manuel Antonio. The restaurant is a trifecta of great food, fantastic service and fun atmosphere! Mark and Gladis really know how to take care of their guest!

Highly recommended!!!!

“Great atmosphere, service and food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

The kids loved the pizza and also the pasta w/meatballs. Not too many options for vegetarians, and the prices were pretty expensive. But, they have live music, great ambiance, friendly service, and we definitely enjoyed our evening there!

“Fantastic service and evening!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

We attended a wedding reception dinner here and had a fantastic time! The guitar players were great and the staff was very attentive. My Mahi was cooked and seasoned perfectly. We had pizza appetizers and seared tuna that were excellent. Afterwards the owner was kind enough to give us a ride to the Arenas del Mar (also reviewed).

“Recommended”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

The pizza is very good and they deliver, helpful when staying at the Tulemar during a heavy down pour of rain. Prices were reasonable and there was not a long wait for delivery. We had the pesto chicken with white sauce and the new yorker. It was a thin pizza but good and filling.

“We live near Italy, and it's better than in Italy !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013 via mobile

We're French, living in Nice, so we very often have dinner in Italy, it's an 1/2 h ride. We never thought that we could eat such amazing Italian food, so far from home, in Costa Rica !
The place is very handsome and well decorated. Staff is efficient, attentive and kind . Oscar tried his best French to please us.
Food wise, we shared a wonderful pizza, very original tasty and crispy ( Pesto chicken and spicy pepperoni),and the little size was big enough for us both.
Then we shared their no1 pasta : Jumbo shrimp portabella. The pasta was perfectly al dente, and we know what it means, the shrimps were Jumbos ! and the sauce was perfectly balanced, onions, tomatoes, garlic...etc. Here again the portion we shared was enough for us.
Mark the owner is a very cheerful guy who wanted us to try his Grilled (fresh) Tuna Chipotle, it was worth our 11h flight !
Seriously, they make fine cuisine, even for us who are always looking for and trying good restaurants in Nice , on Côte d'Azur and on Italian Ligury.

It was a thrill to meet the two of you.. what a wonderful couple and true judges of Great Italian food. For you to give us the wonderful review you did is totally appreciated. I agree with you that Victoria's is unlike any other Restaurant in Manuel Antonio and the portions are as you said.. big enough for another meal and priced correctly for a Gourmet restaurant..

Thank you
