About Asador 44

An Asador is a restaurant specialising in cooking the most incredibly sourced meats, fish and vegetables over charcoal and wood at a very high heat, to perfection. In Northern Spain, they are a way of life and part of the cultural and culinary fabric.

Paired with local and Spanish seasonal produce and side dishes, we will be specialising in cooking the world’s finest beef, in the form of the Rubia Gallega chuleton, a 1.5 kilo rib of 12 year old Galician ox – to share. We will also be mastering the art of slow cooking legs of Pyrenean and Welsh milk fed lamb, Segovian suckling pig and beautiful fish dishes, all on a custom made Basque grill and a Josper oven. All this will take place in our open kitchen which will provide real theatre for our customers.

To compliment the incredible food offering, we will be installing a temperature controlled enomatic wine system, allowing us to offer a huge range of wines by the glass, giving the customer choice of style and price point. Our wines have always been a real highlight of our bars, so we aim to keep reaching higher with the offering. We will also be offering a craft lager on tap from Rioja, the first of its kind in the UK, plus incredible Spanish sparkling wines, as well as a carefully selected ‘gin-tonica’ selection.

Good short menu. Staff were very knowledgeable. We had the table all night rather than the trend towards a 2 hour time limit in some restaurants. We were unrushed and able to enjoy a very relaxed dinner. Brilliant cheese and wine selection. Thanks for a great evening.

Asador 44 restaurant exceeded expectations on every level. The restaurant creates a good impression and has a relaxing ambience. From the moment we arrived the staff were all fantastic. The food was pleasantly different from the norm and tasted incredible. The wine recommendations were on point and full cheese board was magnificent. What more can I say, other than I look forward to seeing you again very (very!) soon.

We have enjoyed all our visits to Asador and on this occasion it was no exception. Food outstanding and we felt innovative. This time it seemed very noisy compared to previous visits.

This was my second visit to Asador 44, but my first lunch time visit. I decided to book a table for myself, my partner and my parents to celebrate my graduation. The lunchtime menu is ridiculously reasonable and good value for money - I ordered the seasonal tomatoes followed by the lunchtime steak cut and duo of Spanish cheeses for dessert. The quality of the ingredients, and the simple flavours are actual perfection. Asador 44 is now my favourite restaurant for a special occasion (having loved Bar 44 for years). The staff’s attention to detail was great, and were very attentive - topping up our water jug before it emptied and providing us with extras such as crusty bread to dip in the olive oil from my tomato starter. We even clocked the manager/supervisor pop his head around to check the presentation of our meal, which also made us feel very looked after. Absolutely blown away by everything, a true gem in Cardiff. Already planning my next visit!!

We had been looking to forward to dining here for a long time and finally made it and it did not disappoint! The food was superb (my partner is a vegetarian and she was very well catered for also), the wine recommended matched perfectly and the service was friendly and informative. It was a very enjoyable meal out in a lovely restaurant and we will certainly be back to taste more of the delicious menu.

I thoroughly enjoyed the meal I had with my girlfriend for her birthday. The team were very welcoming and the service was excellent. The food lived up to its standard and we were very impressed by the rare beef dish we had to share which was contemplated by the bottle of Syrah/Grenache. This was our first time at the restaurant and I’m sure it shall not be the last. Buenos Noches.

Partner couldn't have romesco due to peanut allergy and unsurre on pine nuts however we just noticed that the peppercorn sauce he had as an alternative was added on the bill for £3. Surely this should have been a free exchange?
