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...

This place is a classic...and great music from Velvet Underground, Bowie, Tull, Lou Reed, made the atmosphere rarefied.

I love this place! It’s cozy, the staff are great, though their humour might be misunderstood by some guests, and the food is delicious.

One of the best steaks we’ve ever had! The meat literally melts in your mouth and the sauce a Cafè de São Bento is a well kept secret. The tarte tatin with vanilla ice cream was divine. The service was excellent and the atmosphere very intimate. You will appreciate every second of your time here.

Great file mignon in Sao Bento dressing.
Wine list could include some international red wines as well.
Waiters should work on their English and wine knowledge.

Did not like our table upstairs in a mostly empty room. Had come for the ambiance as well as the food.

Really lovely, atmospheric space with a very traditional style and great, very personal service. Now to the food: undoubtedly among the very best steaks you can find in Lisbon. Tender, delicious cuts, prepared just how you want. I'll definitely be back!
