Since 1963, Victor’s Café, a family-run New York City neighborhood gem, continues to be a culinary voyage to Cuba offering an incomparable experience with its harmony of authentic cuisine, warm hospitality and stylish environment. It has the unique distinction of being both luxurious and casual, serene and high energy, family oriented and romantic, exotic yet familiar.

The cuisine at Victor’s includes the most delicious, authentic dishes combined with the restaurant’s exclusive creations that represent the evolution of Cuban cuisine. Signature dishes include Victor’s famous black bean soup, shredded beef (“Ropa Vieja”), and roast suckling pig (“Lechon”).

The restaurant itself is divided into three spacious dining rooms, accented with warm lighting, colorful Cuban art, tropical ceiling fans, and lofty sky-lit ceilings. Its Cuba Lounge is intimate and warm, featuring a tapas menu and a variety of Cuban cocktails such as Mojitos and Sangria.

Service, food and ambiance were excellent! We arrived early for our reservation post-matinee and were seated immediately in the back 'garden' room which was lovely. Our dinner was relaxed and everything we ordered was delicious from the champagne sangria to the chocolate dessert. Hadn't been there in years and wanted something different (Cuban cuisine) while celebrating a special birthday.

We celebrated my best friend’s birthday on Saturday. Our party had never dined at Victor’s and were blown away by the food, service and ambience. My husband and I frequent Victor’s on a regular basis and were confident our friends would love it as much as we do. Thank you to all for making it a memorable evening.

It’s been a few years since I ate at Victor’s. The food is as delicious as I remember. The ceviche was light and refreshing, the Europa vieja was seasoned to perfection, and the tres leches topped off the meal with just the right amount of sweetness. Loved the lively ambiance. Definitely good vibes, especially coming from the band!! Great Caribbean feel. The only thing missing was the sand between my toes.
