My husband and I love the shrimp cerviche tortas and at 38 pesos (currently less than $2 US) the price can't be beat. Friends have ordered and loved the fried shrimp tortas and the tacos and tostados. It's located on the transversal a little past avenue 100.

First, the adress listed is wrong, it is located on Juarez (also known as the transversal that goes from downtown to the other side of the island) just east of the gasoline station located on the corner. It doesn't look like much from the outside, but this place has great food for excellent prices. Very rare to find tourists there,... More

I asked the taxi driver for a typical Mexican restaurant with "mexican prices". He took us to Camaron dorado. OMG! The food was amazing and ridiculously cheap! 39$ for 5 people, and we ate SO much! Highly recommended for those who like to eat good food for great prices

It's on the way out of town towards the other side of the island but it's so worth it! I had octopus ceviche and shrimp tacos and my wife had chicken quesadillas. It was all excellent! We had a couple Cokes and the bill was like 10 bucks! Service was very friendly. This place is so worth it! Note...they don't... More

We found this place to replace our previous go to place in playa del Carmen that is no longer there. This was a great new find and we will be going back.

Recommended by our car rental agency for their breaded shrimp tacos. YUMMY and CHEAP. Yes it is on a busy road but for the price, taste and GREAT service we had we were unaware of the traffic. To quote my nephew "THESE ARE THE BEST SHRIMP TACO'S I'VE EVER HAD!" Put a little be of the sauce on adds to... More
