I visited here with my wife and son recently. The cafe gives the impression of being a select dining club right from the start. The front door is like a normal house and you have ring the bell to enter the restaurant. The waiters are very attentive and nothing is too much trouble. My wife and I both had the... More

The Portuguese generally cook their steaks in a pan and being the grilled steak kinda guy I struggle with this. They still pan cook their steaks here, but what sets them apart is the quality of the meat - it is very, very good meat. Tender and full of flavour. The potatoes that come with the steaks are also sensational.... More

I came here three years ago and had one of the best steaks of my life. Seriously. The cream sauce is one of kind, and the tenderness of the filet is impeccable. So what do I do three years later? I come back to Lisbon and go again. Same great steaks. I can't say enough good things about this place.... More

I love that they only have a few options on the menu. For me, that means that whatever we choose it must be good. And I was right! Great food, amazing steak, even the desert was good. Unfortunately it's too expensive for me, so we can only afford go there on very special occasions. But it's totally worth it!! And... More

One of the best steaks in Lisbon. Old fashionable decor, but with very fine taste. Great, great food, at the correspondent price. If you're in Lisbon for business, it's a must go. Try the Bife à Café São Bento!

We honestly weren't sure if we had reached the correct address as there was no open or glass door, but we were let in via door bell and then winded having one of the best meals ever! Steak melted in your mouth and dessert was to die for! Service discreet and helpful with wine choice, and called us a taxi!

Amazing meal, everyting was good, from the entries, the steak and the deserts. The employees were very nice and all the service was excellent. The steak, in my opinion, is the best in Lisbon.
