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.

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

Our second visit here, this time our steaks were quite over cooked and portions sizes were small. Overall I would not say we got value for money this time unfortunately.

Had pre-match lunch for 4. Thoroughly enjoyable. Food, service and wine were all very good. I would recommend as a perfect pre-match venue and would be ideal for dinner for a couple or family.

The place was packed when we arrived. We were seated at the terrace. Very noisy inside, very comfortable and quiet at the terrace. Food was good. Picanha was served cold. Service is great.

The service and ambience at the restaurant were very good. The starters were excellent, especially the prawns pil pil. My partners steak was fine but mine was quite tough (we both had picanha). If a restaurant specialising in beef cannot get the steak right they have a problem. Surprisingly there were very few wines from Argentina on the winelist.

Gorgeous food in a lovely setting with great service. This was actually my second time eating here in 2 weeks. I had been with my boyfriend and brought my mum when she was visiting Dublin. It didn't disappoint. It was just as good the second time. Pre treatre menu is fantastic value and the specials were delicious both times.

Unfortunately when we arrived last Saturday night the kitchen was clearly after experiencing a fire and there was no hope of being served. However, the hostess claimed there had been a power cut.....clearly this was not the case as there were lights on and all neighbouring bars and restaurants had lights on! She said we could sit down and wait but didn't offer drinks etc. Saying the bar couldn't serve anything. This was clearly not the case as waitresses were serving drinks all around us!

While an accident can happen, the way it was dealt with was really appallingly bad. We managed to get a table in a neighbouring restaurant and were told that this was not the first time this had happened. Unless the issue is sorted regarding fires / kitchen you couldn't really rely on it for a special occasion.

Disappointingly nobody has contacted us since to apologise or explain what happened and offer a table for another night. Asador serves great food but based on this experience they really need to address their customer service asap.

Some of the best grilled food you can get. If you like really good quality meet and fish, barbecued, go here. Try either the meet or fish platter

Ordered burgers , the taste and smell of cheese was over whelming when I mentioned it to the supervisor he didn't seem to concerned about customer satisfaction. When he took out plates which were full I would have expected him to ask did we not enjoy the food but he didn't ! Not impressed with this service or food
