I entered here to try the famous "pastel de nata". It was tasty. The place is perfectly located and the old atmosphere inside makes it interesting.

Delicious pastel de nata. Possibly the worst cappuccino I’ve drunk in Lisbon. Gorgeous interiors and friendly staff. Delicious views of the square through emaciated, framed windows drinking in the blue of Lisbon’s cobalt skies.

At Lisbon's Praça da Figueira, in the "Baixa" area, you will find one of its most acclaimed and traditional pastry shops: "Confeitaria Nacional"! Almost a Portuguese national monument since 1829! A beautiful venue, easily reachable on foot and with all the delicious Portuguese sweets you...can dare to imagine. Impossible to eat them all! Ask for a box and take some to your hotel, as they are excellent for night bites! Bon Appétit!More

Pretty interior and location, but staff were rude and unfriendly once inside and lacking in any sense of hospitality. Quite a few of them just standing around doing nothing even thought no one was in there.

Nothing better than indulging yourself in the National Confetaria with its pastries, sweeties and hot tea, in a charming and historic building in the center of Lisbon.

Just one word: fabulous. This is a MUST VISIT especially if you are already near to Praca D Pedro IV, the MUST SEE square in Rossio. Confeitaria Nacional is the oldest and the most traditional patisserie in Lisbon. Love the wooden tables, wooden chairs, wooden...flooring, wooden spiral staircase, but MOST OF ALL, the pastries. Just ask for the most popular choices and you won’t go wrong. Have a cup of coffee to balance out the sweetness! Perfect afternoon rest stop.More

We were at the riverside of Tejo, in Belém. The tarte with mushrooms and cinnamon roll were delicious. The staff were friendly and the panorama was amazing. Good snacks and beer.

In terms of a beautiful building and history, a visit here is well worth it. The huge selection of cakes and pastries makes choosing rather difficult, but I'm sure they all were equally delicious. However, it's popularity also works against it and it does feel...a bit chaotic when you enter, especially if you are wanting to eat in. Food was nice but I have no doubt you can get better and cheaper in some of the local eateries.More

Nice selection of pastries at this historic shop. There is both downstairs (coffee and pastries) and upstairs (sit down meals). I got an almond pastry and coffee. After trying a variety of pastry shops in Lisbon area I found this one not among the best....It’s ok. Of course that’s all relative. It’s far better than any pastry shop in the US but for around here it’s merely meh. Come for the history, have a pastry, and then be sure to try the many other pastry shops in the area.More
