18 Best Steak Restaurants in Sydney


The best steak restaurants in Sydney are sourcing beef from the best farms around Australia before cooking it to perfection over coals and serving it to you with great sides. We find it hard to go past BITECCA, Rock Pool, and Hubert. However, as these restaurants on our list can surely attest, there are few things in life more straightforward and satisfying than biting into a perfectly cooked, high-grade cut of meat. Aussies are no strangers to the grill, some of Sydney’s best steakhouses could not only compete for the best in the city but also contend for the top spot on the world stage.

Best Steak Restaurants in Sydney at a Glance

Our list of the best steak restaurants in Sydney goes like this.

Now we’ve had a look at our favourites, let’s check out the complete list.

1. BISTECCA

Bistecca is dedicated to Tuscany’s highly revered Bistecca alla Fiorentina cut. So much so that it’s the only steak they offer on the menu, serving it to you in 100-gram portions. The only decisions left are what sides you’re going to pair with your steak: Pizza dough, ricotta, roasted garlic and Radicchio, walnut, feta, and woodfired grapes being two of our favourite options. It’s also a great option for those who like to enjoy a delicious glass of Italian wine alongside their steak with regions like Piemonte, Toscana, and Campania all covered.

2. Restaurant Hubert

Also one of our favourite French restaurants in Sydney, it’s no wonder to see Hubert on our list of favourite steak restaurants. Standing out from the rest with live jazz playing from Monday to Thursday that perfectly partners your high-grade cut, wine, and good company. Hubert believes and exists by the fact a good experience is as much about the ambience, good conversation and laughter, as it is about the quality of the wine and food. They showcase this to the tenth degree, the space is warm, the lighting is soft and the Champagne is more than abundant.

3. Woodcut

A staple on our list of best restaurants in Barangaroo for a reason, Woodcut is the ultimate spot for traditional methods of cooking with fire, steam, and plenty of smoke. The menu pays homage to slow-cooked meals in a wood-burning oven or over an open fire. It’s so good you can taste the raw, earthy flavour of their wood grill steaks and wood oven bread, which pair perfectly well with an array of delicious sides and salads, like the burrata with stone fruits, basil, basil seed dressing and the wagyu beef skewer with rose harissa, spiced salt, pistachio, and mint.

5. S’More

A neighbourhood bistro led by Big Sam Young and Superbanana with a focus on community, S’More takes a unique approach, blending French-bistro classics with subtle Asian influences. The menu focus is premium ingredients, and some of our favourites include the lobster pasta, 2GR Wagyu, and the “XO Pippies” linguine with green garlic chive, and chilli pangrattato. The cocktails here are also something else thanks to their fresh, Asian-inspired touch, with the likes of yuzu spritz and our personal favourite, lychee highball. Of course, there’s a curated selection of whisky on offer, both Japanese and Scotch.

Best steak restaurants in sydney the gidley

6. The Gidley

The Gidley is hidden away in a basement on King Street making it that extra bit special from the moment you arrive. Brought to you by Liquid & Larder, the restaurant opened in November 2019 and we think it’s the perfect combination of old-school atmosphere and new-world charm. Once you’ve made your way down dimly lit stairs, you are welcomed by a one-of-a-kind bar & lounge room where you can have a pre-dinner drink before heading into the beautifully furnished dining room.

Highlights on the menu include Australia’s exceptional Riverine Black Angus rib-eye which can be ordered in three different ways; A classic chargrilled rib-eye on the bone, prime rib roast (that can be served as a massive 700-gram cut or 300 grams of thinly sliced pieces) or as a spinalis steak (the most succulent cut when removed from the cap). The Gidley is one of the only restaurants in Australia that serve spinalis steaks and that alone is reason enough to make The Gidley your next dining destination.

Address: Basement/161 King St, Sydney NSW 2000
Hours: Mon 5pm-12am, Tue-Sat 12pm-12am

9. BLACK Bar & Grill

A classic steakhouse specialising in wood-fired steaks and seafood, you can taste the passion that goes into every meal at BLACK Bar & Grill. The beef here is lightly smoked to infuse the sweet delicate flavour of cherry wood ash before being grilled over high-heat Australian iron bark on the wood-fired grill, the slow-burning wood and combustion resulting in some of the most flavorful steaks you will ever enjoy. We recommend ordering from the grill section of the menu, with standouts including the wagyu tasting chef’s selection and the ribeye 40-day dry-aged grass-fed angus MBS3+.

11. Fratelli Paradiso

Known for its classic Italian cooking using only the freshest ingredients, Fratelli Paradiso is a guaranteed palate pleaser. To eat here is to feel like part of a giant family, complete with incessant clamour during the busier hours. And while the flank steak or veal cutlet remains second to none, you’re just as well off getting the risotto or calamari.

12. Porteno

Also making our list as one of the best restaurants in Surry Hills, Porteno has come to epitomise meat-centric dining with the feverish popularity to show for it.

Brasserie L’Entrecôte | Image: Supplied

14. Brasserie L’Entrecôte

With two locations in Sydney one in the CBD and one nestled on the upper north shore, Brasserie L’Entrecôte is a much-loved, french-inspired steakhouse. Taking a nod from the original Le Relais de l’Entrecôte, the famous one-dish steakhouse that opened in 1959 in Porte Maillot, Paris, you can expect a similar ethos here. They like to keep things simple, serving up quality sirloin steak with a delicious secret sauce, crispy homemade French fries, a fresh salad and a glass of wine. Along with their signature charcoal-grilled sirloin, also make sure to give the Les Escargots a try.

15. Chophouse Sydney

Unfettered in both name and principle, The Chophouse delivers succulent meat and chummy service in a modern setting. This top Sydney steakhouse goes by the appropriately direct slogan: “Fire. Meat. Wine”. We couldn’t put it better ourselves. The Chophouse is a crowd-favourite and is widely regarded as a worthy candidate for the best Sydney steakhouse title. In terms of menu items, we struggle to go past the scotch fillet (300g, MBS 2+, 120-day grain fed), the crispy loglio squid with confit garlic aioli, and the slow-roasted spiced carrots with preserved lemon on the side.

Address: 25 Bligh St, Sydney NSW 2000
Hours: Mon-Thur 12-2:45pm & 5:30-10:30pm, Sat 5:30-11pm

16. Kingsleys Australian Steakhouse

Sprawled between two levels inside what was once a candle factory is Kingsleys in the CBD. It’s a wildly popular spot for one reason, they cook a downright incredible steak. We can’t go past their grassland premium beef steak, particularly the rib-eye surf & turf with prawns, and the mains also fare just as well — the confit Aylesbury duck leg with glazed beetroot, eschalots, cherries and port deserves a special mention.

Address: 29a King St, Sydney NSW 2000
Hours: Mon& Sun 5:30-9pm, Tue-Thur 12-3pm & 5:30-9pm

Steersons Steakhouse | Image: Supplied

17. Steersons Steakhouse

Panoramic views aren’t the only drawing card here, with steaks so good you won’t know what’s hit you. We recommend the Havericks dry-aged beef, served with either roasted Australian tiger prawns with béarnaise sauce or grilled petite lobster tail with garlic butter. And, for something on the side, we can’t go past the roasted bone marrow with parmesan crust, and the heirloom tomato salad.

Address: 17 Lime St, Sydney NSW 2000
Hours: Mon-Wed & Sun 11:30am-3pm & 5:30-9pm, Thur-Fri 11:30am-3pm & 5:30-9:30pm, Sat 5:30-9:30pm

18. The Meat & Wine Co.

The Meat & Wine Co. brings South African flavour and technique to Sydney. Long story short, our taste buds couldn’t be happier. This popular Sydney steak restaurant has Kangaroo on the menu for those who like to work those mouth muscles, however, you’re better off getting the scrumptious premium steak.
