Victoria's was recommended to me and it was very close to the villa I was staying in. The waiter was fantastic he ask our names and did not forget them. He made some suggestion and inquired about our trip then told me I could bring...my fish I caught and they would cook it there. The atmosphere was great all the staff was friendly but the food was amazing. I had Capellini. I wish I could get that here in TX. I had pizza the second time that was so yummy. I will be returning in January and defiantly be stopping in again.More

I did not want to eat here but was overruled by my wife who wanted traditional shrimp with cocktail sauce. Way exceeded my expectations. Our server, who I believe was Elliot, was the best server we had during the first week in Costa Rica. Pizzas...were great, shrimp cocktail was spot-on, and the caprese was excellent. Server suggested the tuna and it was fantastic. A very nice, relaxing experience, with great food.More

Ordered a stuffed lobster and bruschetta. They brought us bread as an appetizer and it was the best I’ve ever had. The service was phenomenal and we will definitely return to Victoria’s if we are in the area again.

The entire family loved it multiple times during our vacation. They were attentive and the pizza, pastas, and salads were all excellent.

Just had dinner at Victoria's. Our meal started with the bruschetta which is the best that I have ever had. For main course my husband ordered the spaghetti and meatballs and myself, the garlic shrimp...also, were excellent. But, what made this the best experience, was...the service. From the moment we were greeted by the hostess, to the young busboy, and mostly the superb service by Elliott, we cannot say enough about the above and beyond customer service that we received. THANK YOU Elliott and team for making our last few nights in Manuel Antonio the most memorable ones.More

Brought my family here tonight- it’s directly across from Tulemar resort. Food was delicious and fresh, had the lobster special and the shrimp and sausage entrees. Kids had pizza and salad. All delicious. The service is what sets the place apart. Jasmine and Eliot were...so accommodating with our special requests and picky eaters. The best part was their helpfulness in learning the language. They were so encouraging with the kids (and the adults!) in learning pronunciation and idioms. We had a lot of fun and a great meal to boot! Ambiance was beautiful- open air, beautiful breeze, Covid friendly. Highly recommend!More

My wife and I visited Victoria's mid-February 2021. We were staying nearby and it was an easy walk. We went all out, starting with appetizers and a bottle of wine, followed by main courses, finishing with the delicious banana's foster and a glass of cognac....I did mention that we walked, right? The food was quite good , all around, but it was really the attentive and friendly service that made the night for us. That and a torrential rain storm, making everything cozy and fun.More

Victoria’s is a great Italian restaurant. We had our last dinner here and really enjoyed everything from delicious cocktails to caprese salad, pizza and a delicious shrimp dinner with perfectly cooked fresh vegetables. The service was fantastic and its a pretty place. Just a quick...walk from Tulemar.More

I stayed in Manuel Antonio for 7 nights and chose to eat dinner at Victoria's for 6 of the 7. While Victoria's has a wide selection of delicious food and beverage, the service consistently surpasses what was found in other restaurants I visited throughout the...country (and those in Manuel Antonio I visited for breakfast and lunch). All staff at Victoria's are genuinely personable, making for a very comfortable and memorable experience. Jasmine and Daniela offered very pleasant greetings at the door and were appropriately interactive throughout the entire meal. Ellioth is a superb server and overall host. I am extremely selective in travel destinations and restaurants. I was not disappointed in a single bite of food, sip of a drink, or overall moment at Victoria's. Thank You all for your service and I apologize that you had to see me so many times!!! I'll see you next time!More

Meh, the pizza was not good. There are so many restaurants that are sooo much better than this place. I recommend more authentic local food than this place
