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.

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 .

Ribs, mussels and gambas to start were incredible and disappeared within seconds.

Followed by 2 x chateau briands - cooked to perfection and demolished

Our waiter was funny and very attentive

No complaints, will definitely return!

The staff were wonderful, the food and wine was fantastic and they did a superb job in surprising my boyfriend with a birthday plate at the end. All in all, a fantastic time was had by all. I will definitely go again the next time I’m in Dublin.

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!

Overall excellent dining experience.. we are visiting from New York and always look for new and different dining experiences. Located in the Balls bridge area of Dublin this restaurant did not disappoint us. Not a center city tourist trap but rather a bit outside but worth the walk! Very hospitable and friendly! Casual but still elegant! The grilled asparagus appetizer alone is worth the trip
