El-Camino’s vision is to offer a unique dining experience for all its customers. Located in a narrow passageway in the heart of Palma surrounded by a mix of residential and commercial premises, its huge bar provides ‘at the counter dining’ where Tapas is freshly cooked within touching distance of the diners from early morning to late evening.

Such a unique dining experience required a specialist kitchen ventilation company to overcome the many issues involved, such as: proximity of the canopy to diners, lack of service downtime, front of house ‘theatre’ style cooking and unusual restaurant footprint.

The 5.3m x 1.3m stainless canopy was hand polished to blend seamlessly with the aesthetics of the restaurant. The inclusion of cold water mist provided maximum F.O.G. removal & spark arrestor for the Josper charcoal oven and the inclusion of an automatic hot detergent wash cycle maintained restaurant productivity.

Supplementing an extract duty of 2.5m3/s with inboard capture air technology ensured maximum emissions capture and dimmable LED lighting allowed the canopy to match the required dining atmosphere. A simple touch screen control panel provided a full operational interface.
