“Delicious Lamb Chops”
Reviewed January 1, 2014

If you like lamb, this is your best bet in Madrid. Done to perfection in a clay and wood oven. The atmosphere is relaxing, the service could have been friendlier, even when address in Spanish, they were proper but not friendly.
I would return since the quality and price were excellent.

“Great Food at a Reasonable Price”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

We love well cooked Spanish lamb. The Asador is a great place to go. We had their menu, which included the lamb, but also a good appetizer, salad, desert, coffee, and a bottle of wine. The good was excellent, and so was the price.

This meal was at the calle preciados location, which in our opinion is less nice than the Diego de Leon, but the food was A level

“Love it”
Reviewed May 31, 2013

I love going there - so far only knew the ones in Barcelona but this has just as good food. Apparently I should try the cochinillo (suckling pig), but I always go back for the lechazo (baby lamb). Absolutely awesome, relatively good priced (if short) wine list as well. Just make sure to not bring any vegetarians :-)

“Food not Atmosphere”
Reviewed February 16, 2013 via mobile

To be positive if you want the most tenderly cooked lamb or pork you have ever eaten then come here. On the other hand if you want buzz, local company and atmosphere then I'm sorry to say that this is not the place for you. A great shame because the food was excellent.
