Had several meals at El Fierro's with partners and recently both my son. Good meat, nice fries (or potato) and compose your own salad. Clean, fast and friendly service combined with good food, recommended for grilled meatlovers!

Went for a girls night out and had a fabulous time. Extremely friendly and attentive waiting staff (excellent personal touches) with a lovely rustic atmosphere. Meaty, tasty, plenty some ribs with various sides (choices such as baked potato, corn, onion rings, mushrooms rice) and fresh salad buffet for €15.50. Excellent value. Was full when we left (both the establishment and... More

As the title says, the worst sirloin stake I had in my life was served to me a few days ago at "El Fierro". It was full of gristle and obviously too old since the fat was unchewable. It was a bit strange that me and a friend of mine were the only customers on Saturday evening but since I... More

Our first visit started ok, drinks served quickly orders taken in reasonable time and salad bar ok, but nothing great. When the steak come it was awful quality, cheap cuts, full of gristle and no flavour other than garlic salt. Baked potato still raw. No sauces offered, no mayo with fries. Steak tough as old boots, sent the filet back.... More

The mixed grill is really good as are the Amsterdam... More

Ate here with a friend last Saturday. It was one of the few places that wasn't completely full. And I can see why. We had to wait an hour for our food. In the mean time no updates from the kitchen. As we weren't in a rush we were ok with waiting a bit. When I asked how much longer... More

The marinated spare ribs at this place were fantastic. It's busy on a saturday night, so reserve some extra time for waiting. Highly recommended.

As said by many others the meat is great and grilled to perfection. The salad bar is also good. The only minus is the guacamole that is very small with too many salty chips (it has been like this for at least 5 years and seems to be a tradition, if they change this I might go to 5 stars... More
