“Great food, large meals, knowledgeable staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2014

The Asado resturant being part of the Palace Hotel has the expected high levels of customer service and attention to detail.

The mixed grill and missed seafood grill are enough for two; and are delivered sizzling to your table. Note: As not to overcook your meat; order the mixed (meat) grill as medium as the meat continues to cook on the sizzling grill.

Views of the dancing fountain are limited, although after dinner walk around to a closer viewing point that is often over looked and too far from the tourists congregating at Dubai Mall.

Whilst not a cheap night out, ideal for special occasions.

“Authentic Argentinean SteakHouse”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

Asado is the closest thing to the real deal in Dubai. The selection of meats and cuts is excellent with the Rib Eye being my favorite. The decor is very nice with exposed kitchens and a lamb BBQ pit. This is the place to go for beef.

“Great: different cuts of meat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

The Argentine Asado restaurant is part of the Hotel The Palace Down Town, close to the Dubai Mall and Burj Khalifa. From the terrace one has a wonderful view of the Burj and the fountains. It is recommendable to book your table well in advance, if you want to eat outside. The food is good, the wines are good, there is a lively atmosphere with live music and the service is attentive. They give a presentation of different cuts of meat, very useful when choosing from the menu. My entree, duck salad, was presented on a large block of orange salt, which did not look so attractive. My entrecot was of good quality. There is a lot of staff, and that means that one can have 4 or 5 different waiters at your table during dinner, that's too much. If you like meat, a good red wine, a lively atmosphere, than Asado is the place. The food is not cheap, but good quality.

“Surprisingly Authentic & Delicious Parrilla with Amazing Views!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2013

Dined here last night for a special dinner with the in-laws and neither the food nor ambiance disappointed. The empanadas to start were packed with tons of flavor and the lomo was absolutely delicious. We had just eaten at Gaucho last week, and though the ambiance isn't as modern or chic, Asado has a far superior steak that's well worth another visit (or three). Very nice service, even nicer views of the Burj Khalifa, plus some live music playing on the terrace was a nice touch. All in all, a wonderful and highly recommended meal!

“Definitely must try !!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2013

Excellent place. Became one of my favorites in Dubai. Great views, outdoor terrace, specious inside. Welcoming atmosphere.

We asked for a nice table inside for two. It had a great view to fire pit inside and a Dubai fountain outside. I think it was the best table for two you could get inside.
Life music outside.

Mari was our waitress and she was amazing. Very interactive and helpful. We been shown and explain few cuts of meat they serve, as well explained about the goat roast. We had two starters and two tenderloin steaks. Scallops for starter were amazing, basil and lime sorbet was delicious. Two steaks were cooks as asked. Have two say it was good, but not the best steak in Dubai. But it worth the other point. For dessert we have Dolce De leche pancakes with vanilla ice cream. It was yummmmmm. As this is was a special occasion we got a complimentary cake, thou we got it after we had our dessert and asked for a bill, so this probably was only one negative moment in all evening, it would be better if they bring the cake when we asked for dessert menu or along with dessert we ordered.

I would score ASADO 8 out of 10. Will definitely go back. Price: two starters, two steaks, glass of wine, bottle of Pellegrino, espresso and dessert – AED 880.
