Atmosfera meravigliosa con vista sul Burj Kalifa, conoscendo bene la carne argentina posso dire che sia un po’ meno gustosa di quella che mi aspettavo, abbiamo preso un Lomaso (filetto grande da 600g) in 2 con 1 bottiglia di Malbec e acqua gasata conto 245€

It was an outstanding restaurant and superb service. What an outstanding location and view.

I was very happy with my overall experience. Only thing was that my sons food came out before mine and we like ate separately. But can not fault the food, it was all so delicious!

I simply loved every detail.

Professional staff and excellent service. This is a must when you are in Dubai. Argentinian Steaks at its best.
Lots of options for kids and non meat eaters too.
So you have variety.

As a first timer in Dubai, it’s very confusing when paying a restaurant bill. The bills state 10% service charge is included. For a lot of foreigners this means that service, meaning tips for waiter staff is included. So one naturally assumes that tips are covered. Restaurants should state on their bill that Tips are separate to the 10%service charge so one would know that a tip needs to be added.

But not the fault of the restaurant, this is a standard in all restaurants

Lovely place I will be back.

We were a group of five and ate outdoors looking over the fountains to the Burj Khalifa. The menu offers a very good choice, the food was excellent and so was the service. The staff were friendly and welcoming, and very helpful. It’s not cheap but you get what you pay for.

We sat for 40 minutes with empty plates from our main course. Numerous staff walked past in this space of time and we didn’t manage to get any staff’s attention. We were planning to order more drinks and dessert however gave this a miss due to the poor service.

Only the best can be said about this restaurant and its staff. Special thanks to Jessica and her team for fabulous and friendly service! The food was delicious as well, not a single flaw could be found. Views of the fountain from the terrace are beautiful despite staying in a calm place away from the main tourist stream.

Sehr gutes Restaurant und passend ind das tollle Hotel. Es war sehr ausgebucht und dich war es eine angenehme Atmosphäre. Die Speisen waren hervorragend zubereitet. Wenn 4 Personen Fleisch essen, wäre eine grössere Standardmenge an Saucen wünschenswert. Es war ein toller Abend.

Great place with great food and amazing views of the fountain and Burj Khalifa. Vishnu was taking care of during our dinner and I have to stay, if everyone would provide such a customer service than everything would have been on a totally different level.

Many thanks Asado for the nice memory but special thanks to Vishnu for the exquisite service!

The food took a long time to arrive. The steak was mediocre. And the table next to us was loud with a drunk customer who kept harassing another family sitting around me.

The waitress was very friendly and offered great service.

Best meat we have ever tasted! The beef and the ribs were so tender! The chocolate volcano and the pancakes were delicious as well!
The Argentinian wine was also incredible!
The view is outstanding over the Burj Khalifa!
Finally the service is excellent!

I was in Dubai for a 10 hour layover and I’d just come from a long work assignment away from home so I was looking for a nice steak dinner. Asado did not disappoint! I made a reservation here because I saw the selections of steaks in the menu along with the views of the fountain and Burj Khalifa. When i walked in i was immediately greeted by the staff and was given a table with gorgeous views of the fountain. I ordered the Ribeye medium and it was cooked to perfection. I was also given a sample plate of their famous baby goat which was very soft, tender, flavorful and delicious! All of the staff was very nice and helpful with any questions I asked. Overall a great experience, will definitely be back!

One of our favorite places to dine when we are in Dubai. Food quality is good especially, visitors must try Asado's goat. We usually order a sharing portion, then the main course. Their wagyu beef is excellent.

The food and service was excellent
However, the whole experience was tarnished by the valet parking situation where we had to wait nearly 25 minutes for the car to be returned

The meal was good, the table was ok, but its on the floating area outside and it moved alot.
The only disapointment was that we were there for a 60th birthday and every other table was acknowlaged as having a birthday except ours. A large disapointment when i put it in the reservation

Service was excellent and the views awesome. Food is delicious especially the meat
Only one thing regarding food intolerances they should improve as I ordered gluten free and they put bread in my dish, then they changed it and replaced my dish but took a time
The Mexican waitress was very friendly

The meat on the mixed grill was tough and gristly, especially the goat and the ribs.

The steak knives we were given were blunt. We asked for replacements and they were even blunter.

Our wine sat on the server’s station for 15 minutes and it would have been longer if I hadn’t been able to finally attract the server’s attention. Then it wasn’t the wine we ordered.

When we arrived we had to seek out someone to help rather than being greeted. When we eventually found her the hostess made inappropriate jokes about our reservation and throughout the night kept being quite pushy about her taking photos of us with our phones. We didn’t want them but she wouldn’t leave us alone. They were terrible photos too ☹️

This review would have been two stars except the setting is lovely. I’d overlook the slackness of service, the annoying hostess, and even the blunt knives, if the meat had been fall off the bone tender as it should have been.
