We came here on my last night in Portugal and had an ok meal, it was a little hit-and-miss, our starters were really great but both our £20 steaks had lots of gristle in which isnt what you expect with the price. The restaurant looks really flash and they're really hot on customer service and staff dress - but there would be a better review from me if the focus was on making sure the tables werent so crammed together, if there was consistent quality in food and if they didn't bring you bread and canapes over without asking - then make you pay for it .. Really bugs me.

Bank restaurant stands out as one of the best presented restaurants in the old town. My girlfriend and I both had steaks, well cooked to our individual orders. While it is a little more expensive than other restaurants locally, I wouldn't let that put you off. Worth a visit during your holiday.

We had two evenings at this great spot. The first night the dumb waiter was giving trouble so meals were a little delayed. However all was well and the meals were served with appologies and piping hot.Staff are very attentive but not in your face. Second night we pre-booked a table on the balcony/terrace for our wedding anniversary. Again the food was outstanding as was the service( even the special details on the deserts and the singing). A big thank you to all the staff. It was a truly great evening and all finished off with complementary cocktails.

Visited Bank last week whilst on holiday, food and drinks were fantastic.

We had the two fat ladies (two burgers and chips) and the salmon with champagne sauce. Both were fantastic and well priced.

Couverts included olives with no stones (woohoo!), everywhere else had stones and I worry about my teeth with them.

Fantastic place, great music selection - we sat outside so it wasn't too loud and enjoyed a chat over dinner and a couple of drinks.

Top quality steaks in a great location looking over the square if you ask to go on 1st floor balcony. Service was quick and well organised staff had a routine and stuck to it. Every time we walked past was always full. Decorative really modern and smart . The bars a good drink as well.
