Great soup....roasted red bell pepper!! The atmosphere was very quaint, and the service was impeccable. Wine selection was a little light, but they paired well with the steaks, and the attention the staff pays you, makes this a must try in Dublin!

F.X.Buckley is the best restaurant in town to have Angus steaks properly dry aged. What does it mean? You will be served a meat incredibly tender and tasty. Of course, don't think you can have it for a cheap price; for example, rib eye prices...More

If there are any negative reviews on here, don’t listen to them! I ordered the TBone steak, medium rare, with beef dripping chips and a garlic butter. I have eaten quite a lot of steak in my time and this is hands down the best...More

Not really child orientated in my opinion - tables very closely packed together ... I wouldn’t personally recommend - I have four children and I wouldn’t take them to this restaurant

Dublin's original steakhouse with the experience and knowledge of over 25 years of serving the perfect steak. We change our menus each season to reflect the best that Irish produce has to offer and to ensure the highest quality of local fresh seafood. We offer an informed wine list to meet all budgets and an extensive selection of cocktails and spirits. We are also open for weekday for lunch serving health and tasty dishes at very reasonable prices. The way in which we guarantee the highest quality in beef in both texture and flavour is by choosing Irish beef and the highest grade of traditional breeds of cattle. At F.X.BUCKLEY our prime cuts are hung on the bone at 4°C and at 80% humidity for a minimum of 28 days. Storing meat for several weeks where it can loose up to 16% of it's weight involves considerable expertise so all F.X.BUCKLEY butchers are specifically trained for the process. The benefit for our patrons is to experience the concentration and saturation of natural meat flavours and superior tenderness. Hence why you will hear experts use terms such as "buttery and rich", and "earthy and nutty" to describe our dry-aged beef.
