Authentic, Hole-in-the-wall Restaurant Serving Fresh and Delicious Seafood in Tulum!
El Camello Jr. is a popular restaurant with the locals in Tulum, serving fresh and delicious seafood. It is a bit of a walk from downtown Tulum (towards the outskirts of town), but the food makes the walk worth it!
The restaurant doesn't look like much from the outside (it's pretty run-down and dirty looking), but don't let that deter you from eating here. This is a typical hole-in-the-wall, basic Mexican eatery. The seating is indoors, but the entire front of the restaurant is open to the outside, which I loved. It was pouring rain outside when I ate here and I enjoyed the smell of the rain and the cool breeze that it brought into the restaurant.
This was my second time visiting this restaurant this year and I had another wonderful experience. I ordered the grilled fish fillete that came with rice, cooked vegetables, and black bean puree and it tasted fresh and delicious and was very satisfying. The ceviche is also a very popular dish at this restaurant, although I have not had the chance to try it yet (next time!). I also really enjoyed the complimentary tortilla chips with fresh salsas that was served before our meal. Everything tasted fresh and delicious!
The service was excellent and the place was packed with locals (which is always a good sign in Mexico). The menu had a good variety and selection of traditional Mexican and seafood dishes and everything was reasonably priced.
I highly recommend eating here for dinner when you're in Tulum!
