Me and my wife were trying to find somewhere late on a Friday night and stumble across F X Buckley. Best find we've ever had. The steak was amazing and the staff were great too. Would fly back to Dublin just to go there!

Well, what can I say about the food - fabulous just doesn't seem enough. Had the 8oz fillet which was cooked perfectly with spring onion mash. Eating here was part of my birthday weekend in Dublin and I was surprised with a sticky toffee muffin with a candle in it. Would definitely recommend this place, but make you book.

Excellent food and fab service. The prices are very reasonable, especially if dining earlier in the evening as we did and were able to opt for the early bird menu.

Not sure if it was our dress or host's incompetence, but not happy. Walked in while in Dublin was 5:56 and there were about 5 -6 open tables. Said they were all reserved and he would have nothing till 6:30 or 7:00. Hope the tables filled for them. A smart manager would have looked at the time and offered us... More

We went here for dinner on an Friday night and had a fantastic meal. We did not have a reservation, but were able to get seated. They brought out all 9 cuts of meat we could order before we ordered, and explained each cut of meat. We both had the bone-in ribeye, which was fantastic. They had some additional sauces,... More

Steak was absolutely fabulous!! I had the filet and my husband, the sirloin. The wine sauce and garlic butter sauce will put you on cloud 9. My Bellini was wonderful as well as the cheesecake. Wasn't thrilled to see onions in the mashed potatoes after I was told they could get them without. Service started out great but then got... More

Myself and my girlfriend visited the Temple Bar branch of FX Buckley on Easter Monday for an evening meal. Booking was very simple via the app and a confirmation phonecall followed during the afternoon of the day of the booking. Due to traffic we arrived about half an hour late, however a call from the restaurant whilst on route meant... More

And it really is! If as I do you always compare steaks to what you get in the U S of A this is the nearest I have come and with perfect customer service. They started as butchers so they know their meat! Fantastic cuts cooked to perfection with delicious sides to match. Unlike similar establishments they even cater to... More

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.
