Very good sweets, service to be improved

We went at about 10 am, seated at a table and it was necessary to ask twice, after waiting 15 minutes (too much in a not crowded place) and wait another 10 minutes to be attended.

I came here for a treat or lunch several times during my recent stay in Lisbon. I tried pastel de nata at many places during my holiday, and I think Confeitaria Nacional had the best ones. I also really loved the bacalhau pancakes. This place is always super busy so service can be slow.

The chocolates I purchased to bring home for gifts had turned white, which means that they are old. To make matters worse, they charged me twice for my purchase and after numerous requests, they refused to refund the duplicate charge. I would never recommend this place to anyone.

Came here for Portuguese coffee (espresso) and pastel de nata! Delicious, but if you want the best go to Belem for the original. Second best I had in Lisbon.

Title of my review say everything! It is the best place in Lisbon where having breakfast so go there and try their croissant and all the other amazing goods they have. Maybe the only improvement point can be the cappuccino which is not at the Italian level :)

A place to go and see, one of the oldest cafes in Lisbon! With is old impressive decor, the cafe remains one of the most busiest one in Lisbon! With a vast amount of cakes on offer, you will be spoilt for choice!

The absolute standard for Bolo Rei, a specialty of Christmas and New Year. This cake is less decorated here than in most other places but the dough is much better and the ingredients (nuts and dry fruits) of top quality.

Nice place. Chocolate cake was delicious and also krapfen was very tasty. Sometimes you can't find a place to seat because there are just a few tables. Recommended!
