This is better example of a good Argentinan grill restaurant. Nothing up-scale, but just very good for attractive prices, specially the window-menu's. This time we had only little time and took the 'cheap' window menu. But don't panic, the quality was very good.The steak was well prepared, to the correct grade and tasted very well The porc ribs were tender... More

This is my second visit to this great little restaurant and the food was great both times. Try the rump steak with a choice of baked potato or chips, all dishes include the free salad bar, everything was beautifully prepared and delicious. The menu is based on a variety of steaks and also fish dishes, you won't be disappointed!

I´ve been to a several steakhouses in Leiden (reasonably priced) and El Fierro is by far the best compared to price. Gone there four time now I think and the steak is always perfect. Stopped going to other places for steak. Atmosphere is good and so is the service.

Excellent beer, great atmosphere, helpful service, and above all superb steak. Not expensive for Holland. We'll be back. Hasta la vista!

The food was good and reasonably priced (for Holland) with an interesting and fairly romantic atmosphere. Had two (with our party of three) very enjoyable "Argentinian" steak meals. The staff were very friendly and accommodating.

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 you can enjoy your... 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
