“About as good as you get in Sofia”
Review of Asado - CLOSED

Asado
Price range: $26 - $32
Cuisines: Argentinean
Restaurant details
Reviewed May 21, 2012

I have eaten at most of the better restaurants in Sofia and this was one of the better ones. The atmosphere was nice and service was good for Bulgaria (which is about average for North America). The steak was the best I have had in Bulgaria but don't expect it to be on par with a real steak house. The dishes were sort of Argentinian but with the usual Bulgarian twist.

With three visits I have had 2 good and one not so. The burger is good and come with fries for 10 lev. The roast chicken (with corn on the side) was moist and tasty and the wine is reasonably priced. The steaks have been good 2 times out of three though there is a tendency to undercook them. I had to return the third as the cut was horrible and it tasted fishy. They brought another steak, but it took a while and dining companions had to wait... And no discount or offer for the inconvenience. Good soufflé here too.

Atmosphere is ok, but it was very cold inside. The staff told us that their boss doesnt let them use the heating in order to save on utility bills. We took our jackets from the car and went back in since we were determined to have a good steak. Two of us ordered beef fillet steak medium done but to our shock we were treated to pork fillet which was heat treated on the outside in order to make the meat darker and more like beef. We confronted the staff and they had nothing to say. Apparently the whole batch of meat was like that, white and smelled like pork...yeah tight...tragic...

The restaurant is located near the city centre but it is not very easy to find. Be ready to use GPS or ask for guidance.

The atmosphere inside is quite nice, dim lights, nice tables and chairs with cow skin.

The menu is limited but again, they serve mainly Argentinian dishes.

Portions are good in size, don't order too many apetizers as you may get full before the main course.

Overall it was a nice experience, would go there again.
