The fish was great along with the ambience. Service and orice were also very good so, it is worth to visit this place.

Great seafood at the far end of Tulum Pueblo, popular with locals and tourists alike. Also has a little fish market attached. Go early, it gets busy. We went for an early lunch around 11:30, it was quite full by the time we left.

El Camello is on the main street of Tulum, and yes, just like many other restaurants in Mexico, it has plastic chairs, and is open air, with music. Tulum has great fresh seafood--and locals stop by El Camello to buy their fish, squid, and shrimp--all of which is available in the corner store of the restaurant. The fish here is really fresh, and good. Their 'small' ceviche is large enough to share. The fish tacos deserve their stellar reputation. Next time I'd like to be hungry enough to try the whole grouper. Local families were also enjoying the food, and everyone was happy. Mosquitoes? Sure, once in while, but nothing like the north woods. El Camello is a little down the main street of Tulum, but well worth a visit.

Seafood soup was excellent! We travel to mexico every year and have been to alot of different places and this was byfar my husbands favorite soup so far. I myself didn't care for the crab in the soup but everthing else was very good. Service is a little slow and you will wait a while for a table if they are busy. I guess cuz they are just that busy.. as long as we had cold beer we didn't mind :) We ate there twice during our stay and both times were very good. We will be back for sure!
