This is where the locals go so we know the food must be good. I’m not a fan of the downtown area but really wanted to try this seafood place due to the reviews. Ambience: the place isn’t very nice in appearance. Service : so...More

Best ceviche in town. Cash only, suggest you bring pesos. They will accept dollars, however their rate is very unfavorable. I suggest ordering dishes to share. very warm in town, wear shorts and light clothes. This is a very casual place.

Went back to Camellos after visiting last year. The ceviche is still delicious. The shrimp w butter garlic sauce is amazing. Filet of fish a la plancha is good, but go for butter garlic sauce or fried instead. Worth the wait! Cash only.
