Em plena Rua de São Bento, encontra-se o emblemático Café de São Bento, aberto desde 1982. Desde a sua abertura, que o Café de São Bento é destaque em diversos meios. Tendo já recebido a distinção de “Melhor Bife de Lisboa” pela revista Time Out. A música ambiente, a decoração sóbria, o serviço profissional, e os preços convidativos são os ingredientes principais do sucesso do Café de São Bento.

A receita original do Bife à Marrare confeccionado no Café São Bento sofreu algumas alterações. Aqui, o bife é com carne do lombo fresco, ao invés da carne do pojadouro usada na receita original. Também o molho foi alterado, sendo um segredo da casa, e por isso, o bife agora chama-se Bife à Café São Bento. Além do Bife, há diversos pratos, como o carpaccio de salmão fumado ou carpaccio de novilho, e as deliciosas sobremesas como o crème brûlée.

INSIDER tip

Claro que não poderá deixar de experimentar o célebre Bife à São Bento, acompanhado com batatas fritas e regado com um delicioso molho, que é de “comer e chorar por mais”.

About the restaurant Café de São Bento

Com os melhores bifes de Lisboa servidos até de madrugada, o Café São Bento foi reaberto em 2006, mantendo a decoração tradicional com predominância das madeiras e bibelots antigos.

O ambiente mantém-se intimista, fugindo ao conceito tradicional do restaurante pois identifica-se mais com um pub. Recriou o conhecido bife à Marrare e tornou-se um sucesso com vários anos de história. Apelidado por muitos como o melhor bife de Lisboa, o bife à Café de São Bento, mantêm-se desde o seu início fiel a dois princípios: carne de primeira qualidade e dose generosa.

A esta especialidade juntaram-se outras, como o bife à Portuguesa, frito em alho e louro, ou simplesmente grelhado. Para acompanhar, além das estaladiças batatas fritas, pode optar pelo esparregado, salada ou uma bela garrafa de vinho. Sempre que quiser jantar fora tarde, este restaurante é uma boa opção, onde a especialidade são os bifes. E até de madrugada...

I have been to this place for the second time and it was as amazing as it was 3 years ago. The meat is on the point and amazing and the service is just perfect. If I go visit Lisbon again, I will make sure to have dinner at Cafe de Sao Bento again!

The steak is delicious, so are the homemade chips. The wine was so smooth in the mouth and really good. The lemon pie dessert just made me cry - incredibly delicious. One of the two waiters is very humorous and the other attentive. The restaurant has a lot of charm - old style but cozy.

Small very nice Restaurant with tasteful old furniture. Very attentive waiter with a good sense of humor. Best in class steaks with superb sauce. Excellent crisp fries. Given the quality of the food, prices are reasonable.

Excellent food, attentive service, interesting interior.

Good choice in winter or with bad weather, because there are nor windows, nor terrace.

Old school restaurant, just two sweet older guys working hard and getting everything spot on. We enjoyed everything, special mentions deserved for the starters - beef carpaccio and pata negra. By the way, the 'round fried potatoes' are pretty much home cooked thick crisps (chips).

Nice old school atmosphere, but the steak is overpriced and disappointingly prepared. It's barely seared, and tastes a bit boiled. Fries are also not great, too pale.

Delicious no fuss food. Great attentive and friendly service. Happening place with an exclusivity feel as you need to buzz doorbell in order to be let in...pretty cool.
