We had the luck to be able to make a reservation because the number of guests is limited. The ambiance, service, steaks and kindness of the personnel are all very special and excellent! Don't miss it during your visit to Dublin!

We have tried multiple great 4-5 star TripAdvisor restaurants around Dublin and this steakhouse is by far the best there is. The meat is dried Irish beef which is perfectly cooked by the chef and doesn't require any additional seasoning. The waiting staff is friendly and precise and helps you if you don't know the exact difference between the cuts.... More

Been going to FX Buckley's for the past 10 years. Never a bad meal. The steaks are aged and cooked perfectly. The mussels are excellent. Service is always top notch. The atmosphere is relaxed. Perfect place for a special night. Prices reasonable for what you get.

I had a Wonderful and perfectly cooked T Bone MRare with béarnaise sauce which was a fabulous recipe and a very nice creamed spinach (FRESH) with a lovely half Rioja. To finish a Brûlée which also apart from missing a touch of vanilla was a super recipe, perfect consistency, beautifully caramelised and slight warmth from the blow torch. A wonderful... More

The quality of the food and service was top notch! The only bad things were the price of our bill in the end and the fact that we were rushed out of our table. Overall the experience was good, id suggest people to book in advance as the place is very busy and get overbooked easily.

Thank Fabiana D

Serving Ireland's best steak in Temple Bar, a traditional Irish steakhouse with the experience and knowledge of over 25 years serving the perfect steak. We change our menus seasonally to reflect the finest that Irish produce has to offer in combination with the finest wines, cocktails and spirits to cater for all tastes and budgets. The Buckley Family has built a reputation as purveyors of quality meats for over six generations. Francis Xavier opened his first butcher shop on Moore Street in 1930 and this soon became awell-known Dublin institution. Since then it was part of a natural progression to open our own steakhouses around the city and serve our famous beef from our butchers to your table.
