Dublin's F.X. Buckley Named World's Sixth Best Steak Restaurant

F.X. Buckley in Dublin has been named the sixth best steak restaurant in the world on the 2023 World's 101 Best Steak Restaurants ranking.


For the fourth consecutive year, the ranking has been presented by London-based Upper Cut Media House, after being initiated by Ekkehard Knobelspies in 2019.

The winner of this year's ranking is Parrilla Don Julio from Buenos Aires, while the 2022 winner, Hawksmoor from London, ranked in second place, and American Cut Tribeca from New York ranked third.

The meat ambassadors and testers noted that the quality of the tested restaurants is constantly developing and improving, not only in terms of meat quality but also in the areas of product knowledge, cooking methods, service and interior design. It was also noted that it can be seen that, especially the European steak restaurants with their focus on old local breeds, new aging techniques and from "nose to tail eating" are increasingly asserting themselves against the former supremacy of the established classic steak restaurants in the USA, and convince with a more individual offer.

The other restaurants voted into this year's top 10 are as follows:


  • No. 4 - Carcasse, Belgium
  • No. 5 - Bodega El Capricho, Spain
  • No. 6 - F.X. Buckley, Ireland
  • No. 7 - I due Cippi, Italy
  • No. 8 - Rockpool Bar & Grill, Sydney
  • No. 9 - Lana, Madrid
