Simple salads, but really tasty. Fresh ingredients, very good flavor. Good service and normal price. We ate inside the covered market.

I had a good steak here. The service was fast, but the place is crowded during lunch and hard to find a place to sit.

Excellent food, service and atmosphere! Really cozy and romantic which makes it ideal for couples. The atmosphere and the restaurant decoration details reflect the traditional Portuguese culture very well. The waiters were excellent, ensuring that we had a good experience and very patiently paid attention...to all small details. We had a fantastic experience.More

As many other reviews have highlighted, our evening started with a doorbell as well. A very kind waiter let us inside and we were welcomed by a peculiar posh, but cozy English-styled livingroom. The steaks are quite good, but don’t expect typical Brazilian steaks -...These are a different class. I found the Sao Bento steak quite good, but definitely not amazing. The presentation of the dishes can definitely be more flashier. But to be fair, it does match the restaurant’s vibe. Tip: look into the photo’s on this site for an overall impression of the restaurant.More

It feels like a discreet restaurant from a communist state...with a door bell to ring to enter and with deep crimson interior. Its a great steak house with an impressive wine list from all the regions.

The atmosphere is old fashion cozy. Some couples or friends in a sort of club like room. There are no signes outside, except for a very discreet one and you have to ring a bell to get in. It is opened until 2am and the...meat is delicious with some creamy saucesMore
