“Great steak”
Reviewed 19 August 2013

I really enjoyed the restaurant and the food. We had the steak "à cafe de são bento" and it was very good: well cooked, delicious sauce and enough for one person.
The restaurant itself has a nice decoration, which enriches your dinning experience.
Nice location, nice place, perfect for a romantic dinner.

“Best meat restaurant in Lisbon”
Reviewed 13 August 2013 via mobile

I had a signature fillet (with cream) and my girlfriend a "portugese" steak, they were both amazing, perfectly cooked and seasoned. We enjoyed also the sides and the wine a lot. All this in a friendly atmosphere and full of caracther at fair price, we'll go back for sure.

“Ridiculously good steak!”
Reviewed 5 August 2013

Went here on last night in Lisbon after seeing recommendations on TripAdvisor. Rang doorbell as the place did not look open and we were greeted by a very friendly waiter who welcomed us. Felt a bit like entering the lounge of a mafia HQ but the service was absolutely quality! We both ordered the filet steak (medium) with a glass of house recommended red wine and it was melt in your mouth delicious! Price wise it is a bit more expensive than your typical local Lisbon restaurant but cheaper than what you would pay at home in Ireland (€23 for good sized fillet steak with generous helping of fries).
