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

We went to this steakhouse following a tip of a friend and we have been very positively surprised. The meat is delicious and cooked perfect. The service is friendly and efficient. Last but not least it is not very expensive. Definitely will go back when in Leiden.

Best spareribs and skewer with beef we ever had! Tender and very good taste. Nice restaurant; good atmosphere, Not expensive but excellent quality! House wine only € 2,50 a glass.
