Argentinian steaks that rocks!

El Fierro is a good solid Argentinian steak house. We have been there a couple of times and the steaks are delicious. Rump steak medium is my favorite! Never been disappointed from the chef, cooked on fire coals with love and the service is great. They have a good choice of nice red wine so that... read more

I had lamb chops and it was amazing. It came with baked potatoes/french fries and salad bar. The staffs were very friendly and the atmosphere was quite nice. The downside was it took forever for our food to arrive as we waited for almost one hour. Come here with friends so it won't feel that long, the food was worth... More

I come here a lot and I have to say it's very good, perhaps questionable décor but that's it, best ribs and steaks in Leiden by far. Highly recommend the ribs Amsterdam, the fact that if you finish you can have another enormous rack is just a bonus

El Fierro does great food. The Amsterdam ribs are wonderful - I don't think there's any better in the city. I had the ribs and lamb chops combo which was delightful. The sides are good and there's a trip to a (sparse) salad bar thrown in. The baked potato wasn't great, tasted warmed up - so stay with the fries.... More

A steak house from the front this restaurant has a secret which once you discover you will return many times more. The spare ribs which El Fierro serve up are the best I have ever had. Having lived in Leiden for a number of months I was able to return here for a weekly ritual, every time the ribs got... More

Eaten here a couple of times now, good steak but the ribs are amazing just so tasty and the meat falls off the bone, second helping was free of charge too, decent house red wine also. Highly recommend as the price is very reasonable.

Argentinian steak-house on the main street leading into Leiden from the train station. I had the ribeye (called the "gringo cut"), and it was quite good ... a nice cut of beef, cooked as ordered (medium rare). Steaks come with choice of fries or baked potato (which is served only with sour cream) and a trip to the salad bar... More

Being two fussy Steak Eater, We were extremely happy with our Steaks and everything from start to finish was outstanding. The service from Amber was second to none... Her helpfulness, pleasant smile and her passion for her job and love of her home town was evident. Even when I went to order giraffe instead of a safari her humour shined... More

The ribs (15.50) were very nice and falling off the bones, but the steak (14) was not that impressive. It was a good place for meat and the staff were friendly, but the place was too dark to see what I was eating (or take any decent photos). The mains came with a salad buffet bar so it was a... More
