1 Victoria House, Haddington Road, Dublin 4

A warm welcome to Dublin 4’s first review here on Legless and the honour rightfully goes to Asador. They take pride in the heat method that cooks their meat and fish and, boy, it shows. Their chicken wings are divine and almost certainly give Tribeca‘s wings a run for their money. I had their wings and Asador burger (jerk mayo fans take note) from their pre-theatre menu and there are plenty of other menu options for lunch, groups and for rugby days. Their basil gin deserves a special shout out. It was genuinely like a pool of heaven in a glass.

What has it got?

Seating: All of the tables have moveable chairs and they fit a wheelchair nicely. The moveable chairs have armrests but the fixed couches at some of the tables do not.
Doors: The doors are slightly heavy to push open but they are wide.
Ground: Wooden floors, which could be a nuisance on wet days.
Stairs: Everything is on the ground level.
Bathrooms: They have a fully kitted out wheelchair bathroom here that is decked out rather nicely as opposed to the usual sterile vibe that wheelchair bathrooms possess.
Spaciousness: When I was leaving, I had to ask a few people to pull in their chairs so I could make my way out.
Helpfulness of Staff: The staff were very helpful here.
Parking: Parking might be a little bit tricky here. There is plenty of onstreet parking but it is a busy spot so you may have to park further afield especially if it’s a match day.
Rating: 9.5/10
Why did it lose points? The only main issue with Asador is the lack of suitable parking but, other than that, you will get a top quality meal here all the while knowing that it is good for your chair, making it an even better experience.
