Food got cold and so was everyone.Server left the food and thats the last we saw of her. Instead of starting a party, we all quickly ate and left.... More

Visiting the boardwalk and came upon the Mexican place. Nice upstairs, nice view of the marina. Food was abundant and margs were good. Price point average. This is not fine dining so don't expect that. It's the type of place you go to on a beautiful warm day to sit outside, smell some ocean air, sip some margaritas and have... More

Awesome view but prices are much to high for the quality of the food. If you want good Mexican food Ventura will provided it, but there are better choices.

Seemed cool when we first got there, came with my mom. We quickly realized we were not priority. Not to mention, the live reggae band apparently only knows a few songs, which they proceeded to play for 20 minutes each no joke. I know this because we left when we didn't get our drinks after 15 min and went to... More

Visited Ventura Harbor during Rock the Dock weekend. this was the best place for viewing and listening to the band. Had to order some food to be able to get a table out on the patio upstairs. Ordered a large salad to share and nice cold wine. Place is a little shabby inside but the location was good and the... More

I was excited to be at the Harbor Village and have a celebratory margarita for my birthday--I had been thinking about it since earlier when driving up from LA. The weather was more than nice--sunny and balmy. My wife and I weren't planning on this particular place, but happened to come across it by recommendation of the front desk of... More

Nice location in Ventura Harbor. Great views even from the indoor seating. Party of three and everyone well satisfied with meal for both portion and taste. Burrito was large and tasty, bowl was just the right size. Will definitely add Margarita Villa to the restaurant rotation.

This Mexican restaurant overlooks Ventura Harbor and sits above an Arcade and includes live music, so there's plenty of walking, shopping, and activities in a he surrounding area. Food was okay, drinks were good, and wait staff was friendly but waitress could have been better. Will probably cry me back on our next visit.
