Argentinian
Asado is a broad Spanish term not only for a range of barbecue techniques, but also describes the social event of having or attending a barbecue; food is placed on grills and lowered over the embers of special applewood chips where it acquires its distinct smoked taste by absorbing the aromas and sealing in the flavours...

Asado dishes are typically no-nonsense, rustic and honest, yet colourful and fiery - you could say the culinary equivalent of the Argentine Tango! Entertaining family and friends at mealtimes is essentially how Asado dining culture emerged in Argentina and, the life-affirming feelings of togetherness it creates is why it has become so popular around the world.

We visited on a Friday lunchtime. The restaurant was relatively empty so we could sit anywhere. We received excellent service from Maz. The food was good, but the wine list limited. All in all a decent, unhurried lunch but perhaps a little overpriced.

Great decor and ambience - better than I expected. Morcilla and sausage good. Pinientos de piquillo a bit oliy and soft - pre-prepared? And no hot ones! Steak great and cooked perfectly. Sea bass also nice but the marinade was too strong and charred for this kind of fish. Wine good. Service great. Thanks!!

The ambience and food is outstanding. Tables are a bit too close together - my only pet peeve! Also more sides with the mains, I didnt want the chips, would have preferred creamy mash. Will certainly be back!

I must admit I was disappointed on two accounts with my recent visit to Fiesta. I have always considered it to be one of the better restaurants to eat steak in Birmingham, but after deliberately describing how rare we wanted our steaks, they still came out overcooked and were not seasoned. Especially disappointing as one of our first choices was not available and that was at 6.30 in the evening.
My other gripe was that I was served and charged for a double shot of my chosen drink, without being asked first and I normally drink singles as doubles are very costly when you are on a budget.

We got of to a bad start by being told we had no booking, yet we did, and from then on it just became more disappointing. This is generally a great place to eat with great food, service,ambiance and an all round great experience. Unfortunately this was not to be, the service was poor, 20 minutes to get drinks served to our table, we were the only guests at this point, our main order was incorrect and the food in general was not great at all, it was a disappointment, will take some time before we go back which is unfortunate as this has always been a go to place for great food. Just hope it’s a one off

Have visited this restaurant a couple of times before and have never been disappointed. Booked to go on a Sunday afternoon with my partner and our friend. On arrival they had no idea about our booking despite open table sending me a confirmation email . Thankfully the restaurant was very quiet with only 3 tables occupied . Once seated we immediately asked for a jug of water, this took 30 minutes and 2 more requests . The waitress half filled our water glasses then took the jug away with her. My partners prawn starter was cold. There was a very long wait between courses. My pasta main was cold and I sent it back, on receiving another it was inedible. It tasted like oil. My creamed garlic spinach was disgusting and tasted like salty water. My partner then informed the manager. To be fair to him he was really good and couldn't do enough to try and compensate. I don't eat meat or fish and the only veg option was the one I'd sent back, he offered to make me something not on the menu however my companions had nearly finished their main. He bought me some complimentary foccacia which was good. My partner ordered a 2nd sauce for his steak as the first was very small, this never arrived however was put on the bill. Very very disappointed and doubt we will return. The two stars awarded are solely for the proffesional and courteous manager.

Staff lovely and attentive, very knowledgeable about anything on the menu. It was nothing special it was just ok, I had the sea bass and my husband had the fillet steak on the bone, he said it was nice but nothing outstanding, had better. Perhaps we expected too much as a few people hyped it up before we went. Couldn’t fault the staff though they were great and worked very hard. Also loved the vibe but would we go again probably not.

First time I came it was excellent this time I was sadly disappointed.... First I said I didn't want water for table but was still given it and charged I think its very over priced just for a steak and rocket salad that wasn't the best at all

Well presented restaurant on the Hagley Road. We ordered these delicious Padron peppers, followed by a steak that was cooked to perfection & a fantastic dish with cod. Looking forward to our next visit!

Nice setting, pleasant waiter , good menu, freshly baked bread.
Despite a quiet saturday lunchtime, i would have liked to see managerial presence. Food was well presented and cooked. Good value , I would return at a busier time to see how it runs, since lots of preparation going on in the kitchen for the evening business

Very disappointed with fiesta this time around. For the price there is a lot of cost cutting going on. When we first use to go, the bread platter was large, u got more olives. Now you get one piece each and few olives. Steak was good but again the sides were smaller. The dessert was smaller and different to what I had expected. Overall I wouldn’t go again

I was looking forward to eating at fiesta del asado as I had read somewhere that it was better than Gaucho's (London) and that is my favourite place for steak. Unfortunately I was let down, the steak was not cooked in the way I had asked, however the food was tasty it did not meet the standards you would expect for the price paid for the meal. They do not have a variety of steak sauces and the chimichurri was really bland. The waiter that we had was not particular helpful and didn't seem as though he had a lot of knowledge about the different steaks, when asked questions about particular cuts he she read from what was on the menu without elaboration.

Me and my partner had the rib eye steak. Best we've ever had! It comes with a very tasty dry rub and side salad. Very tasty, ordered side of spinach and fries but to be honest it didn't really need it. 10/10! We come at 6pm so place was quite empty but was packed when we left at 7:30pm.

Went there on 02/06/15, entered good steakhouse into Google and this came up as the 1st choice so off we went.
Booked the evening via their internet booking form, in arrival they had no knowledge of our booking but wee happy enough to seat both myself and my colleague which was a relief as we had walked a good distance to get there (2.5 miles).
Waitress that we had was obviously new as she forgot to bring our drinks to the table, ordered starters and the arrived within 25 minutes which was quite a wait seeing as there wasn't many other tables on. Food was full of flavour and looked nice, tasted as nice as it looked👍.
Main course ordered, can't remember the name but it was a 16oz steak from 1 muscle, it arrived and looked good and tasted delicious, was a wee bit tough or should I say tougher than I expected for a £26 steak, any how's finished the plate.
Service was bitty throughout the evening with our waitress making some mistakes during our time there.
Over all a nice place with lovely food, but it is expensive £95 for 2 steaks and 2 starters and a couple of soft drinks.

I took my son and fiance for a Birthday treat and we were not disappointed. The atmosphere was perfect with cosy lighting and a pleasant buzz about the place. We maxed out on meat and had ribs to start followed a 40 ounce T bone to share. Th e steak was amazing....cut really thick and melting in the mouth. You won't need much to go with it!
A lovely evening and great service too. Very happy thank you.

This is our second visit to Fiesta del Asado. The first was for our daughter's 21st, which our son couldn't attend so this time we took them both along for a treat. Has to be the best steak anywhere we have eaten. This is truly an experience not to be missed. Superb service throughout the meal. We have recommended to several friends and will return again.

I enjoyed having dinner here with my partner but the service was too over attentive, the starters come out within seconds and the moment I had put my folk down it was gone, the staff tried really hard and I am greatful for that but it would of been nice to have a sip of my drink inbeween meals. I had ribeye steak for a main and I have to say that it was one of the best steaks I've had for a while. Cooked to perfection, tender and the rub they put on the steak was very tasty.
