I have travelled wide and ate at some of the finest steak houses because I love steak and I'm blessed enough to afford fine food. The house special steak was absolutely fantastic. Tender, juicy, soft, sublime are words that enter the mind. The sauce is incredible. Never had anything like this. The service is outstanding. Professional. Prompt. Polite. I like... More

The carnivores in our family needed a meat fix so we decided to test this well-reviewed gem. We were not disappointed! On arrival it looks like a residential building but once inside it has the ambience of a private members club. The menu is limited which we took as a good sign. The steaks were indeed melt-in-the-mouth GOOD. The sauces... More

Café de Sao Bento- I have read about that place in advance and was very intrigued by the ceremonies of its work. That was an only place worth waiting during a hungry hour and a half – as it turned out it was really fantastic. At the needed time (from 7pm) I rang the bell and could hear the sound... More

Small and discreet, opens into a classic British-style inspired restaurant (if you are fond of the white lacquer furniture avoid this cosy place). Smoking is allowed in the room on the ground level so we climbed to the first floor where two couples respective babies and toddlers were having dinner. Unfortunately they felt so at home that they mostly disregarded... More

but not only a very good steak . A charming atmosphere and a very kin d and flawless service. Arriving from London and having a late dinner at a Sunday night isn't everywhere you can got it . Even the music is fantastic. A very good price quality price of wines . I'll revisit always this splendid place

On the basis of positive reviews, my girlfriend and I chose this place for dinner on our first night. It turned out to be the best meal we had during our stay!! The service was polite, friendly and fast, we enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere, and the steak was fantastic. In short, the meal was pricey but definitely worth it. Go... More
