This restaurant is a hidden gem as it's tucked away down a side street and looks very small from the outside, but is a great place to have an amazing steak! The door handles are meat cleavers and the restaurant is set upstairs with a huge meat cabinet to view your choice of steak from!! The staff are very knowledgable... More

There are a few of these about. We went to the one by Christchurch. Went here our last of a break in Dublin and it was incredible. Treated like royalty even going out of their way to move us to a better table overlooking Christchurch cathedral without any request made by us. We had the chateaubriand and it was by... More

Visited here with my wife recently. I ordered a fillet steak and it wasn't great. For the price you pay you expect something spectacular. I may just had a bad experience but I wouldn't recommend. Plus the gentleman that served me wasn't very polite. Overall there are much better restaurants around.

This was a first visit to FX Buckleys and it did not disappoint. Excellent staff who were so friendly and added to the atmosphere. Delicious food and excellent value. One of the nicest steaks I've had since visiting Argentina.

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.
