19 Steaks Everyone In Sydney Needs To Try

*Breathing intensifies.*

Posted on

1. Meat and Wine Co., various locations

With two locations in walking distance of each other, you can opt for the more populated Darling Harbour restaurant and people watch through the ceiling-high glass windows, or chill out at the smaller, cozier Circular Quay spot with a glass of red and perfectly marbled Wagyu fillet.

2. The Cuban Place, Sydney CBD

For a twist on the regular steak you're used to, The Cuban Place offers up expertly cooked steaks to your liking with a side of chimichurri and mushrooms.

3. Chophouse, Sydney CBD

This place is called Chophouse, so you can bet your damn house on the fact they deliver some premium. Ranging from grilled minute steaks to dry-aged T-bones, you'll be able to get your fill of marbling every day of the week.

4. Porteño, Surry Hills

After a fire scare last year that could have resulted in the world being without this holy church of steak, Porteño is back and running with awesome Argentinian cuts that'll help you fix any steak cravings you've had.


5. Kingsleys, Woolloomooloo

This place badges itself as the "best steak (and crabhouse) in Sydney," so they're either really cocky or know what they're doing. Give it a whirl, but bring your wallet.

7. Rockpool Bar & Grill, Sydney

You know it's gonna be expensive, but Rockpool's reputation is deserved and you can guarantee you'll be getting some quality grass-fed beef.

8. Riley Street Garage, Woolloomooloo

Chill out, grab a cocktail, and share a gigantic 800 gram Riverine ribeye. There's also a bitchin' carpaccio, for the more adventurous.


9. Papi Chulo's, Manly

Part of the Merivale group, Papi Chulo's is the kind of place you go with a big group because you don't want to miss out on anything. You'll sit on a cane-backed chair and feel like you're chilling out on a beach eating delicious, quality, meat. Because you are.

11. Manly Grill, Manly

Manly Grill is regularly filled with people, and there's a reason. Chill out beach-side at the famous Manly Beach and enjoy the quality steak and chips that has become a local fave.

12. Ribs and Burgers, Neutral Bay

Sure, it's called Ribs and Burgers, and the ribs and burgers are certainly great, but this joint also makes some quality steaks that'll have you begging for more.


14. LP's Quality Meats, Darlinghurst

The crown jewel of Darlinghurst, if LP's Instagram account doesn't have you salivating, nothing will. This is the place to go to eat and be merry with likeminded individuals who also see the merit in eating a steak that makes you feel like you've just been through a religious experience.

16. Braza, various locations

Brazilians sure know how to cook meat, curing everything with bucket loads of salt to keep your tastebuds asking for more.


18. Phillip's Foote, Sydney

Built in a heritage building, Phillip's Foote isn't just a tour through history. It's also a bangin' place to get your steak on.

19. Vic's Meat Market, Pyrmont

Located next to Sydney's famed Fish Markets, Vic's Meat Market is where the pro chefs go to get their meat. Luckily, you don't have to buy it and cook it at home, because they've got a smoker and grill to offer up some steak that'll have you purring.
