Claudio's Place is the best atmosphere and the best food on the west coast of Mexico. Excellent staff, excellent choices of food. Top quality and party atmosphere.

We're so glad we found this place. Ordered the seafood platter for 2 and it was amazing. The margaritas hit the spot. Great service and reasonable price.

After over twenty visits to Mexico, this is the place with the best atmosphere and food. The service was brilliant. The food was spectacular. The atmosphere was so authentic and enjoyable. There was no shortage of food and the prices were more than reasonable. If you are in Nuevo Vallarta, do not miss out on Claudio's Place!

This is our second time going to Claudio's and we absolutely love it. The meals/drinks are 1/3 the price of the resort restaurants and far better quality. Wonderful staff! Relaxing place to go with family or friends. Very chill atmosphere. This is a simple place, nothing fancy. It's not about the ambiance. It's got everything else in spades. My 4... More

One of our cab drivers told us that if we liked PiPi's we would like Claudio's Place. He was absolutely correct. This was short cab ride from our resort. We were early diners and were welcomed warmly. The waiter suggested a special margarita that was really just a top shelf one but sooo delicious. It came in a goblet and... More

This restaurant has been here for some time with a good reputation but this was our first visit. The menu is mostly traditional Mexican fare along with seafood and steaks. We had fajitas and chiles rellenos. Both were very good large portions. The drinks are large and good. The staff is very attentive and Caesar our server was great. Prices... More

Another place recommended to us by some locals and Wow! We went for a late lunch so it wasn't very busy but the service and food was fantastic. We got a taste of some real Mexican cuisine cooked to perfection. Don't be worried as this place is a little off the highway but it is right next to a school... More

This tucked away, genuine Mexican restaurant may look out on a futball field and include a sports bar, but it also has terrific food, margaritas, and friendly service. Bill had the Seafood Combo and I had the Mexican Combo. Both were huge servings and delicious, especially the prawns and the outstanding Chile relleno. To top off a great meal, we... More
