Barbecue

Top Tags:

Pre/post Theatre
Asador is a barbecue restaurant located just a 2 minute walk from Grand Canal Dart station. The restaurant serves barbecue food on an asador grill and was the first of its kind in Dublin. Started by 3 friends who wanted to bring the experience they had enjoyed in countries such as Spain and South Mercia to Dublin's diners. The menu offers Irish dishes with a twist, such as a Scallop and black pudding skewer while offering steaks and a selection of seafood grill dishes.

Asador has a fully enclosed heated terrace that seats 40.

Our starters took an hour to arrive. Mine was very good but not very big! Two of us had the striploin. The steaks were pretty tough and stringy and not at all what I Would have expected from an establishment that prides itself in BBQ and beef. Very disappointing. The sides were very good. The service was good. The bill would have been ok had the meal been better but to be honest I have eaten much better for the same cost or less in other restaurants. In the basis of this experience I would be back to or recommend Asador.

We were seated outside (which was covered) and I have to say it was way better than expected! Inside looked very busy and quite loud, outside was very pleasant. And the food and wine was really good, will definitely go again :)

It was a lovely experience overall. One of the best we have had in a while.
The steak had a bit of a charcoal taste that my partner thought took away from the flavour of the meat.

It was the eve of my sons wedding and we had an immediate family get-together to send him on his way. We got a fabulous round table for 8 (it would have fitted 10 easily). They treated us really well and we’d s fabulous evening with great service and food. Thank you Asador for making us feel special on a very special and important family occasion.

My family decided to have a nice dinner out together. The service was great, the place looks fabulous, everyone was very kind and professional, the food was great but could be a little bit better, we’ve had better wings and salads but everything else from the menu we chose was delicious! Overall for food we’d give 9/10. Thank you for a beautiful dinner :)

Delicious food and cocktails, efficient, friendly service. We ate on the terrace on one of the blissfully sunny days in Dublin over Easter. Would highly recommend Asador.

Really enjoyed my lunch today, fabulous monkfish meal, with a superb glass of Sancerre. Loved that there was a Petit Four option for dessert. Highly recommend Asador.

We went to Asador for the pre theatre menu. I was really pleased to see they had a separate vegan menu so I went for that. The food was well presented but it didn't blow my mind. Plus very expensive for what it was. The oyster mushroom starter was nice but the main which consisted of broccoli and cauliflower was quite plain. My parents had burgers which they said were nice but average.

Excellent service on Saturday evening .... the waiter even lent his reading glasses to our guest !
We all had fillet steak and salad which was fabulous and cooked to perfection . Plenty of good wine and espresso martini and cheese for dessert . Great night and apologies we stayed longer than necessary but staff were very gracious about it .
Overall a great evening / night .

He food was excellent, especially the Chateabriand which we shared. However, I thought it was a little bit expensive for what we got. However, quality, staff and ambience were really very good.

Table layout in outdoor area is poor, too many covers which results in tables squashed together leaving you having to raise voices to have a conversation. Good food- a bit more expensive than other similar standard resataurants for lunch menu and too cramped outdoors. I’ve been a good few previously and indoors is far better laid out

Staff and venue is great. We ordered steak sandwiches but the meat in all three was very chewy. For a steak restaurant, it was very disappointing.

We had our wedding lunch here with our immediate family after our registry appointment. It was the perfect place to enjoy it! The ambience, service and food were all excellent. The manager even kindly offered the bride and groom bubbles on the house when he heard it was our wedding lunch. We'll certainly be back!
