Since its founding in 1982, Café de São Bento has been an iconic destination in Lisbon, renowned for serving the best steak in the city. In 2022, the restaurant was acquired by Miguel Garcia, who has since expanded the Group to include four locations, including the original Café de São Bento at 212 Rua de São Bento, a second location at TimeOut Market, and a new restaurant opening in late 2023.
In addition to these beloved steak restaurants, the Café de São Bento Group is proud to introduce its latest concept: Bougain Restaurant & Garden Bar, located in a historic family house in the heart of Cascais. The menu features Mediterranean-inspired cuisine, drawing on classical Portuguese, French, and Italian influences.
