For beginning of XX century's lovers, this place is a most-go. They serve amazing custard tarts, "mil folhas" is amazing, "pao de deus" was equally excellent; and on the top of that you can sit inside a beautiful and well preserved old cafe. You can't leave Lisbon without going there! P.S.: toilets were very clean which is something rare for... More

I have been to Lisbon many times. It is a city of many wonders. One of them is Confeitaria Nacional. One can try different Portuguese delicacies. Pastel de Natas rocks, specially at this café. The cafe dates back to 1829. Since then, it has been Lisbon"s most famous café owing to the quality of the sweets and the location of... More

My wife and I stopped for a break in this resturant for its location and reasonable TripAdvisor's ratings. The service was cordial and prompt (in contrast to many other reviewers experience). The cod cakes were super tasty, the tuna (out of the can) sandwich on house bread was average. The chocolate shake turned to be cold chocolate milk. Prices were... More

The service, just like anywhere in Lisbon, was really rude and slow. However, I must admit that the pasteis de nata and the other desserts were really good. The shop windows and the interiors are a delight to see.

Perfect spot for people watching. We sat outside and enjoyed a couple of black coffees, a chicken pie and a piece of quiche, all were lovely. We went back a few times over our trip amd tried various cakes and treats!

My wife and I went everyday for a week. EXCELLENT Nata pastries and coffee. To the reviewers complaining of it being a tourist trap then going to the Belem pastry shop ( that IS a tourist trap!) Makes me laugh! As far as the service goes we never had a problem because we interacted with the waitresses using the best... More

A superb old world coffee shop and restaurant, founded 1829. Lovely engraved glass and tile details, an ornate curving staircase, a vast selection of biscuits, cakes and pastries, superb own brand coffee, too much temptation by far ! Add to that, a very pleasant and helpful staff and a lovely location, on the Praca da Figueida with fountains; be transported... More
