Great service! We loved the pizza. Beautiful open air restaurant with a lovely ambiance, and the live music was awesome! We would definitely return!

It was my GF's birthday while we were visiting Costa Rica, and we chose here to go out to dinner based on a couple of recommendations. Food was delicious, atmosphere was excellent. Our waiter was Oscar and was very personable. We had a great time. A little pricey, but worth it for the ambiance and the taste of the food.

We all ate a "shrimp" dish and every one of them were amazing. I had the thin crust shrimp pizza and it was the best pizza I have ever had. My husband and daughters had pasta and they all loved it.

Upon recommendation for our resort, we dined here. I loved ambiance, the music and service was perfect. I had meatballs and spaghetti. Very very good. Husband had a fish dish that he was very pleased with. Wine selection was good, if not chilled quite enough. Music was a nice touch and prices were consistent for quality in the area. I... More

This restaurant was one of the nicest places we ate at throughout our Central America travels. It is admittedly a lot more pricey for those on a budget however we treated ourselves to 2 pizzas which were delicious. Completely handmade for us and all the ingredients were fresh and tasty. Also, a really nice touch was the free garlic bread... More

I have to admit, a glass of wine, the atmosphere, and the food make an excellent setting. My family and I have enjoyed dining at the open air restaurant for many years. They also have a guitar player when brings the atmosphere to a level of excellence. I always stay across the street at Pacifico Colonial so that I get... More

We literally pulled into the parking lot to turn around and noticed the specials and sign indicating live music tonight. We decided to give it a try were warmly welcomed by the owner, staff and acoustic guitar music. With the recommendations from the owner we had one of the best meals in Costa Rica. Wouldn't have thought of Italian food... More

I loved this restaurant! They had the best tuna sashimi in all of Costa Rica. The atmosphere and service was just as excellent as the food. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to any one looking for the perfect dining experience!

We were skeptical to try Victoria's being accustomed to great Italian food in NY & NJ. But "Momma's Italian meatballs w/spaghetti rocked! The word from one of the owners is that it's due to the combo of mashed potatoes & filet mignon. The tuna appetizer melted in my mouth, cooked perfectly, although a tad spicy for me w the chipotle...

I had a spinach, apple, and walnut salad. It was very basic, but as described and despite the spinach being a bit on the rough side, just what I needed as I was a little worse for wear. My better half had a pizza (one of three he had in Costa Rica) and said it was delicious, the best by... More
