Elliott helped us arrange our return car, which was great since I didn’t know how to make a local call on my cell.
The setting of Victoria’s is very nice. Open air, of course, with high ceilings and Italian theme decor.
Solo guitar music the Friday night we were there. Giutarist played and sang Radiohead’s “Creep” with a laid-back reggae feel. Set list was mix of covers and Costa Rican music which was new to us and very enjoyable.

Our waiter Elliott took the time to teach us more localized phrases and was patient with us as we worked to order in his native language. The rest of the staff was sweet and attentive and also was receptive to our attempt at conversing in Spanish. The food was excellent, the sangria was phenomenal and the staff was warm and welcoming.

Delectable - Our favorite meal was at Victoria's. The first night we went to Victoria's my husband had the spicy ravioli special as an appetizer and fettuccine alfredo for dinner and he... read more enjoyed both. I had the stuffed lobster and it was the best meal I have ever had! For dessert we had the brownie which was yummy. Since our meal was so good we went back again. My husband had the filet mignon and I again had the lobster. The meals were great but what really stood out was the service. Staff worked together to refill drinks and clear plates but our waiter always made sure to check on us. I wish I could remember our waiters name because he was attentive, pleasant, professional, and gave great recommendations. He was willing to help with my Spanish, even telling us the specials in Spanish and English so I could learn. I would highly recommend eating here and would definitely return if we are in Manuel Antonio area again!

- Katrina Kowalski ★★★★★ 2 months ago 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!
- Stine Barnholdt ★★★★★ 11 months ago Fabulous place. We almost feel like we are home in Italy.
The service is over the top - totally professional.
The food was great and totally Italian with a twist of Costa Rica❤️🌴 we loved it.
Eat here if you’re in Manuel Antonio.
- Dianne Smith ★★★★★ 3 months ago 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!
- Jenni Moreno ★★★★★ 4 months 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!
- victoria Castro ★★★★★ 11 months ago Service, amazing! Food, ohmygawwwwd! 🤤 ordered bruschetta for our app, steak and tuna and it did NOT disappoint. Highly recommend this place, will absolutely be going back my next stay.

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 … More and my main dish. Their drinks are also pretty amazing. 📔✍ we had great service despite the thunderstorm going on as we arrived and throughout dinner.
