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.
