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

We planned on going to Por Que No but it was closed. Our taxi driver suggested Claudio's and we decided to try it. As we approach the restaurant we were a little apprehensive due to it out of the way location. Once there we were greeted by a friendly staff and became at ease. My wife and I both had... More

We have eaten at Claudio's previously and were disappointed on this visit. Now that this is the one and only Claudio's ( Bucerias location has closed) we were expecting more. Prices do not match the quality. By mistake we ordered steaks as we had been eating seafood for days. They must have been cooked in a frying pan. None of... More

What a great surprise! Recommended by cab driver a few days ago and we went last night - Yes, it's Low Season right now and I knew that when we booked this visit. I ate everything but the design from my Mexican Combo Plate: nice piece of steak, enchilada, taco, bean and rice, guacamole and the best chili relleno of... More

I had great meals at our hotel (mayan palace) and thought this place would be cheaper and better but the food was just ok and very expensive. Honestly I wouldn't even bother unless you want to get stuck with gringo prices.

Claudio's location, just off a gravel road, makes it look a little dicey, but it is anything but. Take the road less traveled and visit this restaurant. We did,and we'll be back every time we are in PV. The food and service was great, and we're just sorry we didn't find this place until our last night in town.

We asked our bellhop which local place we should choose and immediately he said "Claudio's, you have to go there, it is the best food and tell them I sent you, take this ticket and you will get 4 free drinks," We walked there, and it was an interesting walk, about 10 minutes from our hotel. Not super friendly when... More

Claudio's is one of the restaurants I always go to when I come to Nuevo Vallarta. The bacon wrapped shrimp is great, a little salty but that seems to be normal here. The Cadillac Margarita's are a must have as well.
