“Great Place in Marina Area”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

A terrific restaurant with a fun atomsphere. Victor roams around providing tequila shots and chatting with customers. The restaurant is an outdoor patio across from the marina. It has expanded since two years ago when I was last there. Same wonderful place. The food is good, not great, but you wouldn't know it from the always busy crowd.
I enjoyed stopping in and having a couple happy hour beers and talking to the northerners that winter there. A great source of information. Great people watching too.

“Going Home to Victor's”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

Going to Cafe Tecuba: Victor's Place, on Marina Vallarta, is like going home to visit family. Victor greets each guest with a handshake and a hug...like family that he is happy to see and welcome home. Victor, and Victor's Place, are warm and inviting. My husband and I have been coming here for years, bringing Victor our freshly caught fish to prepare for us. The presentation is something to behold...a platter of fish prepared in several different ways with a variety of sauces. We are always impressed and pleased.
Victor also has a varied menu...meals are very good and the prices are so reasonable. It's hard to beat the value.
Dinner will always include a shot or two of tequilla with Victor and an after dinner drink on the house. Staff is attentive and charming ...like Victor himself. Arrive early or be prepared to wait a bit..it's crowded and busy, but you'll soon discover why. A great place, fun and always memorable. Don't forget your hug good night when leaving. You are family at Victor's after all.

“Ok food.”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

Ok food but more printed to size than quality. Good Mexican water. Nothing special although victor is a good host. The restaurant itself on the patio is crowded and noisy and not that comfortable. Atmosphere is fun and friendly.

“Good Mexican, great prices”
Reviewed March 1, 2013 via mobile

Went for the first time in all the years we have been coming to PV. It's always full and always seems to be a party atmosphere when we walked by. Good Mexican food in the Marina area. Prices are extremely reasonable but be aware, they only take cash, no credit cards.

“Didn't live up to the hype”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

We were told by a few people that we had to go here so we had high expectations. Unfortunately, the food did not live up to the hype. We ordered beef nachos to start and they were gross. The beef was sliced thin and very, very fatty. We ate two and sent them back. You get free chips to munch on as well but they were so hard that my jaw hurt from eating them. For my meal I ordered the chicken fajitas which were pretty marginal as well. No flavor and no salsa or anything to put on them. My dad had the beef burrito which had the same icky beef in it and the sauce was not good either. You do get a free drink at the end that is a mixture of kahlua, cream and maybe baileys which was alright but didn't make up for the icky meal. Definitely won't go back.
