Consistently good food and service time after time

We have been coming to Nuevo for years and recently relocated here permanently this November. We go to Claudios once a week now and have never ever had bad food, or gotten ill. The food is always good and never differs in taste, a meal you can bank on time and time again. The service is always... read more

Close to Mayan Resort. Good food. Music a bit too loud. Large restaurant. Family dining. Prices reasonable. The manager wanted to sign us up for some tours as we were leaving; everybody's selling something in Mexico!

We have driven by Claudio's Place dozens of times over the years but have never came here until this year. I did not dig the atmosphere, I don't know how to explain it but it was just not happening for me..it felt a little off. The food and drinks were good. Flavorful and tasty.

The greetings were genuine, the drinks and food just fine but after a such a good evening it got spoiled by the arrival of a lousy dessert in the form of a time share salesman who obviously operates with managements permission. Well the dessert was so of-putting that the party of 10 that I headed will not return. Claudio (if... More

Lovely service but veers too far into pushy, hokey tourist trap. We ate here late Feb 2015, mistakenly thinking this was another restaurant that we had been to five years before. BEST Mexican combo was very good Deluxe margaritas (special of the house) were great, but also too pricey for what we got CND$10 ISSUES One of the male staff... More

Our party of four (plus infant) made Claudio's an early pick based on our positive experience four years ago. Somehow the place has 'shrunk' in terms of both size and vibe. It just wasn't as fun this time around. No music. Food was competently prepared but no standouts. We tried Fajita Republic a few nights later and had a blast... More

Lots of good local cuisine at Claudio's. Tuesday is shrimp night. Friendly owner and wait staff. Try the baby red snapper, tequila shrimp or fajitas. You can't go wrong.

Very good food, great service and loved the Mexican atmosphere. Very disappointed though, when a Villa Vallarta Sales person came and slide into our table and began soliciting us to go and see these properties. That was a turn off and should not be allowed in the restaurant.

We attended Claudio's Place after arriving back late from an excursion at the suggestion of our cab driver. The out of the way location and exterior seems a bit sketchy. Once inside though the restaurant and staff were inviting. Even a live musician to add to the atmosphere! The food we ordered was good, the fajitas were especially yummy. The... More
