Mind blowing octopus creviche (check portion sizes before ordering as they are huge) and very tasty tacos. Huge queues and no air-conditioning.

Visited El Camello twice for lunch and it did not disappoint. The food is very simple but fresh and large portions. The highlight is definitely the ceviche and seafood items. A medium ceviche can easily be shared amongst 2 or 3 people. A medium ceviche...More

The seafood here is great. The only reason for four stars is the tables on the right side outdoors were swarmed by many flies. I recommend the restaurant but do not sit at those tables.

Was looking forward to this because of the good reviews but got disappointed. I tried the grilled fish and it was nothing special. It didnt taste fresh, no flavor, except when you put lime and chilli sauce on it.

Dinner here our first night based on TripAdvisor reviews. We put in our name and waited about 10 minutes. Try to get a table outside as in the restaurant it was very hot. I think most of the people come here for the ceviche...large portions....More

Worth a visit when staying in Tulum - excellent ceviche, good portion sizes and not a bad price in comparison to other locations on the east coast.

We ventured out to this restaurant and were so glad we did. We ordered the medium sized mixed cerviche (two can share), and fish tacos. Next time we would try the seafood soup as we watched two locals eating it...looked delish. Excellent food.
