if you are more than 8 people it could be risky because of the space. Food was excellent, the menue is well-structured.

Service was rather slow on such a quiet night,felt it was overpriced for what it offered. Steaks were good though, cocktails were small,a lot of deserts not available on the night

We went with some relatives to this restaurant. It has atmosphere, is a bit dark inside, but quiet. We all had steak with me ordering the filet. I was not disappointed at all as it was cooked well and was delicious. Others with me felt the same way. We had a couple bottles of wine that topped off a very... More

Quiet a dark restaurant. WE walked in to a warm welcome, sat on cow hide seats. Given the menu and drinks order taken. The food is cooked in the window of the restaurant to order, ribs fall off the bone, lamb tasty, small salad cart included. Very reasonable.

Went back to this restaurant and, again, I had a great piece of meat. Unfortunately, I saw how the waiter prepared my caramel pudding: open a pot from a commercial brand, put it in bowl, add some wiped cream, a few nuts and call the result after the name of the restaurant. Sorry, but this is misleading.

Pleasant restaurant, however, could do with some help I believe. It is obvious the staff do their very best but I feel that the limitation or constraints are through the owner somehow. Just a hunch. The Restaurant is certainly very cosy and ideal for an intimate dinner. In this way, it has it all. Food wise and service it deserves... More

We had avoided "Argentinian Steakhouses" during the two weeks we spent in Amsterdam. The concept seemed out of place. But when we were in Leiden searching for a dinner spot a local told us that this was a good place to get a meat-centric dinner for a reasonable price. We gave it a try and liked it so much that...

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.
