Very nice dinner with excellent service

Our first night in Bucerias we stopped in at Claudio's based on our taxi driver's recommendation. The caesar salad was made fresh at our table and the BEST I have ever eaten. I had a steak and it was very good but huge. I took the leftovers home and made fajitas the next night. The Mexican... read more

We have been to Claudio's three times over the past few years and enjoyed each visit enough to want to come back. This might have been our final visit though. The food was just as good as before however the service was slow. I could not understand why because there were more people working than there were in the restaurant?... More

Claudio's Place is one of the restaurants nearest to the Vidanta Resort complex. Like many on TA, our taxi driver recommended visiting Claudio's, quite likely he received some compensation for doing so. That said, our group of four enjoyed our meals and the Mexican themed atmosphere. It was a very quiet night when we were there with only one other... More

We went to this awesome authentic Mexican restaurant, the people and service and drinks was perfect and the food was even better. They even had different levels of salsa for the tourists, and a little area set aside to get your picture taken and a mariachi band to come serenade you if you want. It's just off the main road...

Second time here - food was not as good as I remembered. Maybe it was our choices but the grilled snapper was soggy and unappetizing... Steak fajitas were better, beer was cold. Too many little kids running around so atmosphere was definitely lacking. Overall experience - just ok.

We were hungry and didn't want to eat at our hotel so we ventured out for a walk. Having no luck, we flagged a taxi and asked for a recommendation. He told us , "if you don't like the food here I will pay for your meal." He brought us to Claudio's. The food and service was amazing! There were... More

He took us to the restaurant where he then waited for us to eat. We both ordered the surf 'n' turf one with shrimp and ribeye the other lobster... More

This was recommended to us by other vacationers. It was a very hot and muggy night and there were no fans, or very few fans, so it was not very comfortable. The food was but not remarkable. I had a Mexican combo chile reliano which is my usual criteria. and did not really care for it. I would probably not... More

The restaurant was impeccably clean. The service was fantastic.The only regret we have is we did not find this restaurant on our first day there. We would not have gone any where else. Please remember this is a family owned restaurant outside of the city.That being said the surroundings are typical for the area.
