After reading all of the reviews on here about how great El Camaron Dorado is, I just had to try it on my recent vacation. It was hard to find and Google maps didn't help much. It's located outside of town on the Transversal road that heads to the other side of Cozumel. It's not open for dinner- just for lunch. So the food was good, but it wasn't as great as everyone on here seems to think. There are plenty of other options in town that are just as good. If you're heading to the other side of the island and it's on the way then it's worth a stop, but I wouldn't make a special trip to go there.

We often order for take out and take this place for granted.Open to the public,but mostly a local hangout.All are welcome.It is located on the Transversal main road to the other side of the island,but not far from the main tourist area.Resonable prices and great seafood dishes of all types.Love the shrimp tacos,and add your favorite mild to extra hot Chile & Spice.Enjoy

Just as their name says, it's the shrimp. Grilled Shrimp and Garlic. We have tried numerous shrimp entrees and have loved them all but this was our favorite. Real nice Mexican feel to this restaurant with friendly staff. They don't have alcohol but we just went down the block and bought a couple of beers to enjoy with our meal as we sat outside and watched the world go by on the busy road in front of us. Loved it!! Good Tacos too.

Stop there twice this Febuary. The shrimp tacos and tartas are awesome. The service is also great and the place is very attractive. They don't serve beer but you can take a soft drink. Don't let this stop you to try this woundefull restaurant.
