We were charged more than the menu price on our entree items. I didn’t say anything because it was only a few $$ but it did color the experience!

I chose Victor's Cafe to have my mother's surprise birthday party. I have eaten at this restaurant several times before and it seemed like the perfect venue. It did not disappoint. Our waiter, Cesar, was awesome and the entire wait staff were attentive and looked out for our 15-person party. Her party was a success, the food was delicious and the service was amazing as usual. This has become one of my favorite places to dine and tell my friends and family about. A big shout out to the Victor's Cafe team. Great job! Thanks.

Referred by a friend. It was underwhelming. The service is amazing, though. If you stick w the Rops Viejo you will be fine.

Very good food and service. We would like to have had a better feel of the music. There were musicians in the front/bar but we could not hear them play, or any music for that matter.

Music is too loud, service a bit sluggish. Seafood cocktail shrimps were very hard, scallops were undiscernible. Grilled Branzino special was fresh and nicely done.

Great for celebrations. Great food, lively atmosphere with live music in the bar area. Our server was very knowledgeable, pleasant and had a very nice manner about him. The ladies room attendant was also great. I would definitely return. Also, there is parking across the street from the restaurant for people driving into the city.
