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...

Such a classic. It’s everything you would expect of Lisbon Old School. But make no mistake, the steak- we’ll you ain't In Chicago.

It's just perfect. I had my birthday dinner and they offered me a cake and drinks, that was so sweet. The waiters are really kind and gentle, food was amazing and the place is just beautiful. Muito obrigado! I will come back for sure.

It is never easy to choose a place to eat when visiting a new city but the reviews for the cafe de said bento where very positive so I booked. The closed door and the polished brass sign inviting you to press the Bell was very quiant and equally the rich red and wood of the interior was wonderfully comforting making it feel grand and cost at the same time. The service was impeccable thanks to Manuel and our food was superb. We had the Cafe de Sao Bento sauce on a Filet steak with french fries and Spinach followed by a Creme Brulee that was lovely. Definitely a find worth visiting but I just hope it does not change if it is too popular.

Very quiet, traditional steakhouse across the road from the parliament. The steaks are pretty good, but somewhat overpriced. Good service.

Despite having booked I was put in the most awkward table in the place, i’m Assuming because I was a woman dining alone as there were other small tables that were empty. Meant I spent the entire night with a draft at my back. Kind of spoiled an otherwise nice night
