El Camello has a new menu featuring barbecue. We live part-time in Granada and have been there many times, but this is the first time with the new menu. I had barbecue brisket which was excellent and my wife had the pulled pork sandwich which she also said was excellent. The people are friendly and the prices are reasonable. About... More

Also grilled chicken with satay sauce. Both tender, moist and delicious, as was the coleslaw. Worth a visit. Good servixe too and easy to find.

I was surprised to see that this restaurant was not ranked higher on trip advisor, they are doing something special with their BBQ here. We started with the avocado fries, which were melt in your mouth delicious and then a blue cheese burger, which was juicy and flavorful. But the real stars were the brisket sandwich and the Smoked Ribs.... More

Well, in my opinion it is! Incredible steaks (better than the local expensive steakhouse for much less $$). Varied menu options. Consistently excellent! Don't miss this place.

All I have to say is Avocado Fries... my friend ordered them, I ordered the chicken satay. The satay was well cooked, the peanut sauce nice and spicy. But those avocado fries were something special. Who would have thought to batter and deep fry an avocado slice! It is amazing, crunchy, melts in your mouth and then the sauce they... More

I been coming to El Camello for a some time. It has yet to disappoint me. The atmosphere is warm and, especially in the garden, traditional for the area. Once the drinks are ordered (and well concocted by the way), you can relax and enjoy a stimulating conversation as you wait for the meal to arrive. The meal is bountiful... More
