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.

We went to F X Buckley's restaurant in Lower Pembroke Street, a little bit away from the main tourist area but well worth the effort. The food, and the meat in particular - being their speciality - is absolutely excellent and well worth the price (we chose the three-course plan for 30 euros). The service is also extremely good. This was not our first visit and will not be the last.

I was told that this place was the one to go for a romantic night out. There was a good buzz on Friday and was very enjoyable. Both the food and the service were grand but I thought it is a bit more expensive than the quality provided. Will be back anyhow.

We came here for a family dinner and had wonderful steaks, all cooked perfectly. The manager was so helpful with ordering sauces and wines to compliment the food. The personal touch really set this place apart.

After having a very disappointing meal served us at our hotel, in which we didn't eat, we were sent here by the front desk. What a good thing that was! This place is excellent! The staff was quick and efficient and very knowledgable. Our steaks were cooked to perfection, I ordered medium, it came medium! Would def recommend to anyone looking for a good steak.

Yes - we love steak and if you do too, then you won't be disappointed with this restaurant! The waiting staff are very friendly and professional. We shared bread & dips for starters and it was very nice. My husband ordered the 16oz and I ordered the special Dexter Beef 10oz steak. They came as ordered - "medium" and "well-medium", served with chips (like home cooked chips) and onion rings. Lovely! I would have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant for a great steak.
