Great evening with friends. The chef made my friend and myself lobster tacos that were succulent and sweet. Even better with the jalapeno tomatillo salsa. Great recommendation from our taxi driver. Would highly recommend.

This is my third time visiting Nuevo Vallarta. We have been to many good restaurants in the area and I have to say, that in three years there was only one we didn't like. Claudio's was recommended to my family of eight by a local resident. One of the best meals and drinks we have had in ALL the Three... More

Claudio's was recommended to us by a couple of taxi drivers and so we decided to try it out on a Friday evening. The food was very good: from the nacho chips and salsa, to the grilled octopus, to the seafood soup, the sizzling plate of shrimp fajitas and a special fish filet plate we had. Service (by Carlos) was... More

Stop here at least twice per visit to the area. The best steaks and margaritas around. Atmosphere is great. You know you are in Mexico. Best appetizer in town - shrimp in an avocado (for two people). Staff is great as well. Super value.

We had gone here in 2016 and the kids had all you can eat steak, they loved it and wanted to go back this year. I wasn't a big fan but it was ok, so we went. The kids did not eat their meal. The steak was terrible and we had to send it back a couple of times. My... More

Claudios is just a block or two off the main bus route in Nuevo. The new restaurant Alcatres is a good visible landmark. Exit at that stop and then walk a block or two South and there is Claudios. The menu is primarily Mexican and Seafood. I had the Mexican Combo plate. It was great! Chile relleno, mole chicken enchilada,... More

Wonderful out-of-the-way restaurant and bar. Went there for the Super Bowl last week and had a fabulous time. Just outside of Nuevo. We took a bus very easily from Nuevo and took a cab home after dark. The staff is friendly, the bar area is comfortable and food is good with generous portions, and the washrooms are clean. This place... More

We love Claudio's. We first visited in November 2015 and again in 2016. It was easy to walk to before the new entrance to Vidanta opened. You now take a LONG taxi ride to get there. But it's still worth it. The food is reasonably priced and so good. The drinks are HUGE. This last trip our total bill with... More

Went to Claudio's on recommendation of "local". It is a little off the beaten path, but clean, traditional/mexican ambience, and great service. The food is tasty and out night was more than necessary for quantity. I had the shrimp wrapped in bacon, smothered in cheeze, and my wife had the cordon bleu. I had an appie of tortilla soup which...
