    We enjoyed a really delicious meal here. Yes, the prices are a bit more expensive than a local soda; however, they are completely justified for the elevated level of food you’ll receive. Well worth the splurge. To top it off, the service … More was also excellent, wonderful experience.

    Really enjoyed the food at this place, would definitely recommend the chicken franchise, it was delicious. Quite expensive food but is consistent with the area which is generally quite pricy. Only problem we had was the server getting our … More order wrong but they were accommodating and made us the correct thing although didn’t apologise. Would definitely say it lives up the gourmet name and really enjoyed everything we ate here.

    This was a great dinner spot with delicious food and a nice atmosphere. Highly recommend making a reservation since there are not many tables and seems they have a high volume of large parties, even on weekdays. For drinks, we got the red … More sangria which was yummy and had pretty garnish. The service was great, kind and quick service for the food. We were served a small garlic knot for bread, it was warm and the perfect amount to prevent us from spoiling our meals. The kitchen is very open which allows for an intimate experience with the food, the smells fill the restaurant. My brother had the special of the night, a lobster and shrimp ravioli in pink sauce which was amazing. The pizzas were delicious and both the sausage and pepperoni were flavorful. The seared ahi tuna appetizer with chipotle sauce was good and enough service for a meal. The tiramisu was good, but ultimately could be better. Overall it was a great dining experience! We highly recommend this place for a tasty and elegant meal at a reasonable price.

    Words can’t express how incredible this place is. We spent almost 2 weeks in Manual Antonio and we had dinner here 4 times. The food was absolutely amazing! Each time I had pizza and it’s hands down the best pizza in the city. My wife who … More has a gluten allergy also had options which was a huge win and rare for an Italian restaurant and she says it was the best pasta she has ever had! My 2 year old who is the worlds pickiest eater would literally jump out of his seat every time his dinner was served - that alone is an award itself! What made this place extra special for us was the staff. Everyone was so incredible to me and my family every time we came in. I have to give an extra special shout out to our friend Elliot. He served us every night and words can’t explain how incredible he was. It’s like we were eating at his own home and he wanted to make sure every thing was perfect for us. My kid absolutely loved him and jumped at the opportunity to give him high fives every chance he got. He made sure my wife’s gluten allergy was always on top of mind and always made sure she was taken care of and we loved all the conversations we had during our time. Thank you Elliot and thank you for everyone at Victorias for making so many special memories that we will never forget. Pura Vida and we hope to be back again soon.

    Stopped by for a late lunch in early November and had the place to ourselves! The service was top notch - everyone was prompt, polite, and friendly. We enjoyed the complimentary rolls, which came out warm with an oil dipping sauce and were … More very good! We tried the shrimp and spaghetti and meatballs and both were great! The plates were creatively decorated and the food was nicely presented. We were told to try the pizza, but the oven was being worked on so we'll have to try that on our next visit!

    The food was great. They had the best bread I've ever had before a meal at a restaurant. The service was fast and very friendly. Loved it!
  • Avatar Jenni Moreno ★★★★★ a year ago
    The restaurant was so beautiful with all the openness. The staff was terrific, so friendly and on point. Most importantly the food was 5 star. I never wrote reviews but the food was so good! We got the bruschetta, best ever. One with cheese … More and one without for dairy restrictions and they were both were equally as good.
    The pasta pomodoro was divine and the chicken franchise was so light and ate very paste bite. Highly recc if visiting Quepos! We can’t stop talking about how delish it was!

    Victorias is a good place, not too expensive.. Portions are not big, how ever in flavor they can have a 10 from me. I show up to places hungry so usually need a sharable
