Best restaurant in Costa Rica. The tuna appetizer and Lobster Thermidor was to die for. Staff was excellent and took extra time with our children. Owner truly loves his job and went out of his way to make sure we enjoyed our dinner. All of the dishes and wine were wonderful.

If you're in the mood for Italian, this is the place to go! The best garlic knots I have ever had (complimentary, too!)!! Margarita pizza was very flavorful and thin with the perfect amount of crispness. Being vegetarian, we thought we'd have trouble finding a pasta dish but they customized ours to be exactly as we ordered (blush sauce with... More

Victorias is a nice place to have an Italian dinner in Manuel Antonio. The pizza, pasta dishes, chicken and fish are all very good. The steak with the surf and turf is the only thing that is not top notch. It is not bad but just not filet mignon quality like back in the States in a quality restaurant. The... More

Loved this restaurant. EXCELLENT food and wine, great ambience, and the guitarist is fantastic. (I bought a CD to take home - not something I usually do!) Try the pasta with sausage and shrimp, it really is as great as they advertise. Dinners from about 10k colonnes - not cheap, but well worth it for a nice meal in Manuel... More

Went with a group of 7 that included kids as young as 12. All food was excellent, with special mention to the Tuna chipotle appetizer, Mom's Italian meat balls and spicy Italian pizza. Owner was very attentive and recommended some good wines. A bit expensive but worth it. Even ordered for take on another evening when we weren't up to... More

Victoria's is one of our favorite spots in Manuel Antonio. Owner is fantastic and the waiter Oscar gave exceptional service. My daughters love it there; a beautiful atmosphere and great wine.. We will definitely go back.

The pasta dishes were great-- especially the chicken francese. The waiter was able to switch the pasta sauce on the child's pasta meal to accommodate my son. The pizza was good.
