We enjoyed our experience at El Camello. The staff were very attentive and you got a lot of food!! The seafood was cooked well and tasted very fresh. The prawns were massive and the drinks were plentiful. Good value for money.

Great ceviche and chicken! The service is great the location is towards the end of town but worth the drive/walk.

Ate here for dinner on first night in Tulum and were pleased to be sitting amongst locals. The salsa and guacamole were good but the grilled chicken and rice were basic and flavourless. The experience felt a little rushed. Nevertheless the staff were friendly and...More
