The reputation of this South American grill is spreading, and on a Monday evening it was hard to get a table. The mainly young crowd comes for one thing: the meat. This is certainly no place for vegetarians, and starters and desserts are unexceptional, but the sizzling beef and lamb are top grade. There are soups and empanadas to start, and also a complimentary salad. Beef and lamb are grilled to order and brought out on a brazier of hot coals – perfect for giving an extra grill to a slightly underdone cut, or simply to keep half your order hot.
Chicken could get an additional sizzle and you can divide the four juicy lamb chops so they don’t get cold. Steaks are sold according to weight, and the accompanying bowls of chips are large enough for even the hungriest teenager. The pleasant, attentive staff are happy to advise on the fattier cuts, such as asado ribs, and to make sure the meat is cooked to the requested degree. La Fiesta isn’t an intimate spot – the wooden tables are fairly close together and there’s a buzz of conversation – but if you want the best kosher meat, this is where to come.

I was walking past this restaurant earlier on today and a short man with a beard came hurtling out of the door right on top of me. I thought nothing of it and veered out of his way to avoid a harsh collision. However, this person then followed me up the road touching my hand with his as I walked in front of him. He then attempted to rub himself on me, which I managed to avoid.
Utterly confounded, I turned around to demand what he was doing, but he ran off into the nearest shop! A grown man acting in such a way! It was then I realised that I had actually been targeted, perhaps for the way I look? I eventually tracked him down to this restaurant, which he had run back to while I was in other shops looking for him, a chef and a woman were trying to distract me from confronting him, which makes the situation even more suspicious.
I told him in no uncertain terms that I did not appreciate his attention and found his deviant behaviour disgusting. I was made to feel that I should welcome this attention? I would be quite wary of leaving other females alone with him, partcularly where you have another woman working with him that supports this unacceptable behaviour.
And as to the way I look sir, well if people such as myself offend you, perhaps you should move....

rip off expensive restaurant to be avoided. There are plenty of better kosher restaurants. Forget service there was none and 12.5% service charge is a complete joke. How anyone can give ths 5 stars Never ever agian do not say you have not been warned!
Tip top. Best steak around. The Time Out critic is spot on - Agree the chips are disappointing and lemon tea needs to be added to menu. Don't forget the tooth picks. But overall great experience. Our three boys' favourite kosher restaurant in Europe (they're as picky as they come and know the competition).
The Chef has been grilling meats for over 40 years now, really understands a steak. Prices arent cheap, but if you are willing to spend some money this is the place for a solid kosher meal. Authentic south American food. Cant wait to go back
If you're going for a kosher steak, this is the best around. Nice, thick cuts, cooked actually to order (as opposed to the standard 'medium' you get in mots kosher restaurants nevermind what you ask for) and very juicy. Quite expensive, but come to expect that from Kosher establishments. As GoonerEll says, practically nothing for vegetarians, but it is a steakhouse after all.
"Little for vegetarians"? Even the chips are cooked in beef fat. As far as I could see, the only option for veggies is a "salad". My mates love it, as they are all carnivores, but they know better than to invite me.
