perfectly fine steak

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... read 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.

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

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!

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
