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...

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.

Very nice and cosy place. Feels like coming in to a members club.
The best steak I have had for a long time. The meat is in focus, the accessories is standard.

It was not my first visit, it won’t be the last. One of my favourite spots in town. Best stakes and chips in Lisbon! The quality and the pristine service haven’t changed throughout the years; I strongly recommend a visit (specially if you are a meat lover).

To say that this is the best steak in Lisbon, is a tall order. We ordered the famous steak with cream sauce and the Portuguese steak. Both steaks were very tough to cut and chew that we couldn't even finish them. The service and old-time ambiance are very nice and nostalgic though.
