Their fish is always fresh and cheap! If you are in the city I would recommend this spot, get the whole fried fish!

Como un local / viajero me encanta cenar en nuevos lugares o descubrir joyas escondidas dentro de mi ciudad! Recomiendo encarecidamente este restaurante en su camino a Tulum, México. La comida es fresca, deliciosa y económica! Tiene un gran ambiente para amigos o familia. Los camareros son bastante atento, pero, se llena! Independientemente, el cálido aire caribeño suavizará tu estado de ánimo (sin aire acondicionado). Recomiendo encarecidamente este restaurante a todos los viajeros.

As a local/traveller I love dining at new places or discovering hidden gems within my city! I highly recommend checking out this restaurant on your way through Tulum, Mexico. The food is FRESH, delicious and economical! It has a great atmosphere for friends or family. The waiters are pretty attentive, but, it does get busy! Regardless, the warm Caribbean air will mellow your mood (no AC). I highly recommend this restaurant to all travellers.

For years going past Tulum, we noticed this restaurant is always packed. A few years ago, we decided to stop and check them out. El Camello is both a seafood market and restaurant. We've eaten there numerous times and seen trucks of fresh fish and shrimp being delivered. It is mainly a restaurant for locals. Being a seafood lover, we just love this place! Can highly recommend.

Had an awesome night here. Great seafood in a typically mex setting. Waiters were very friendly and the food was excellent and reasonably priced.
