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.
Amazing food superb wine best steak restaurant in Cardiff. Will be returning.
As always another lovely experience from extremely knowledgeable & friendly staff who make you feel most welcome & looked after. Food was divine!!
Fantastic food, service and ambience as always!
The sharing lamb was absolutely incredible. Served with a spoon, the meat melted away from the bone. The staff were incredibly helpful and attentive. Would definitely return.
Wonderful evening with exquisite food and drink, will certainly return again! Thank you.
Simply the best dining venue in all of Cardiff , it wins on ambience , service , food and just pure enjoyment 👍long may it last
Great food. Great service.
Good quality food with a great wine recommendation
Would Be good if you can choose you’re cooking of the steak
We ordered the signature Rubia Gallega chuleton, and it was delicious! The waitress who served us was helpful and sincere, and patiently took us through the dishes of the restaurant. Overall, it’s a pleasant dining experience for sure!
A colleague and I took a client for lunch. We all opted for the two course lunch special. We all opted for the Rabbit Terrine and Steak main. The meal was exceptional quality, good sized portions and certainly the best lunch special I've had in Cardiff! The service was fantastic! Highly recommend!
Lovely food and service
The service was friendly and helpful, with our waiter providing a description of each dish. We went for the Rubia Gallega sharing steak. Whilst it was beautifully cooked, there was a lot of fat on our particular cut. Although the steak was tasty, I can't say that it was noticeably better than other premium steaks, considering the price. Overall, we had a very good meal.
We came down to Cardiff for the weekend and we wanted a great place to spend Saturday evening. We could not have chosen better. What a great place and the food was just sublime. We had a fantastic rare steak to share and it was superb. I am so glad we chose to come to your fabulous restaurant. Thank you
Great food and well attended to by serving staff who were more than happy to explain anything (wines, cuts of meat and ideal combinations). Made our wedding anniversary special!
Service was the best i have experienced in Cardiff
Fantastic food, great service. Will definately be back!
excellent food, great service, very nice restaurant! Stylish yet casual, good atmosphere. Was the first time for me, I will definitely have lunch/dinner at this restaurant again.
The speciality steaks were interesting but not worth the very high price........... a nice well aged, rare, Welsh sirloin or t-bone at a sensible price would have been much preferable. The 10% automatic service charge is also a bit cheeky as it becomes a lot of money when the bill was quite high in the first place.
A remarkable dining experience, i certainly haven't come across 60 day matured beef before. A very friendly welcome from the maitre'd and enthusiastic staff make for a relaxed atmosphere. When we had an issue with our wine, it was dealt with very quickly and with no fuss, indeed an apology - even though an oxidized wine is hardly the fault of the restaurateur! I'd say that it's a must-do if you're coming to Cardiff. Not cheap, but a remarkable dining experience. Probably the finest collection of modern Spanish viticulture in the country.
The service was excellent. I could have just put my head in a bucket of the crispy pig head chunks and eaten myself into a food coma.The scallops and croquetas were also delish. The only disappointment was the pork not being available and the potato side was cold, which baffled me.The mushrooms were in the shape of fish and just scrumptious. Dessert was crazily gorgeous truffles, washed down with a PX espresso Martini and a couple of Sherry’s at Bar 44 a short trot away. Probably the best reason to go to Cardiff for the day
Lovely welcome, knowledgeable helpful staff. Service second to none - a problem with one main course immediately acknowledged and dealt with. And delicious food and wine. We will definitely return!
Really delicious and perfectly cooked steak. Great advice on wine choice. Warm and friendly waiting staff.
Assador always delivers on atmosphere and food. Relaxed and cheerful. Excellent food.
