“"Carrabba's" in Costa Rica”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

We visited Victoria's on our first night in the Quepos/Manuel Antonio area. This is a very 'american style' dining experience in Costa Rica. I would liken it to the Carrabba's Italian Eatery chain that is common in the States. The restaurant was busy and had a warm ambiance. We were greeted by the owner upon our arrival but that was the end of the great service. We had to ask repeatedly for glasses of water and waited extensively for our waiter to appear to take our order. Because wine is very expensive to order at restaurants we ordered a lower-priced bottle (42USD) but they happened to be out of that type. We were upsold to a more expensive bottle (54USD)... both were Chilean, and cost 8-10USD in the States. We were very hungry, and looking forward to the bread service of garlic knots as we watched them being served to other tables, and after waiting for quite a while, we had to request the bread, and had to remind our server again that we were waiting for it. We order a chicken dish and a pasta - both were quite good. One bottle of wine and two entrees was $110USD. After spending 10 days in the area, there are many other great restaurants that have more authentic ambiance, that offer much better value.

“Excellent Food!!!”
Reviewed November 22, 2012

My wife and i went there on our honeymoon,on her birthday . We were satisfied with our choice after being given an unforgettable evening. The owner greeted us with nothing but kindness and hospitality, and also comped our deserts. Since it was my wifes b-day i wanted the guitar man to sing to her during desert, he stayed 45 mins longers just to fufill my request. The food was phenomenol, the pizza, the pasta ,the deserts. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone.

“Best Pizza”
Reviewed November 21, 2012

We stopped here to take pizza to our rental. We ordered 5 different pizzas and watched them make it. The crust was rolled thin and baked perfectly. Everyone loved all of them!

After a long day of travelling, it was awesome to have Victoria's deliver direct to our door at Tulemar.
