Description: 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.

“Good steak and that's it.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 week ago via mobile

Really tasty 28 days dry aged 10oz Rib Eye steak for €28.95, cooked to perfection with pepper sauce and mash potato.
Great selection of other cuts also available and displayed in a cabinet.
Small place and always busy, better to book in advance.

“Good steaks!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 weeks ago

We went with a group of eight and that did not seem to be a problem with the service.
The majority of us had steaks and we were all impressed, cooked to perfection.

“Nice place to eat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 weeks ago

This restaurant has delicious steaks. Staff is brilliant. What I don't like about the restaurant is time- we had finished our starters and dinner in 45 minutes. Yes , food is absolutely fantastic, but we didn't have time to celebrate it.

“Absolutely stunning...steak brought a tear to the eye!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 weeks ago

This restaurant was recommended to us by The Dean hotel where we were staying. Being from Manchester, my boyfriend and I have eaten steak in the 'best' city restaurants such as Gaucho, Hawksmoor etc....however....I have to say our experience here topped anything we have had steak wise! They brought the cuts out for us to choose and on delivery the steaks were cooked to perfection! My boyfriend actually got a bit emotional whilst eating the steak which I thought was hilarious!!!

Amazing foos, brilliant attentive staff...we will be back!!
