It's a charming little pastry shop. We went for breakfast and the staff was very helpful as we didn't know what the pastries were. Not too expensive and everything that we ordered was good and tasty.

Ok cakes bolos and natas, nothing like pastis belem or mandr.. The place is 200 years old but i dont think it is worth 200 years experience. Better places for sweets ,although i didnt try the chocolates that looked amazing

Although on this particular morning we were heading to Belem to try the coveted Pasteis de Belem,in an attempt to try as many pastries in Lisbon as possible we stopped by the Confeitaria Nacional for our morning coffee and a cheeky pastry before catching the tram. We placed our order at the counter and took a seat in the beautiful... More

Perfect for a quick lunch. Ate a delicious salad and an awful iced tea. It is very centrally located and seems to have maintained the original interiors.

While it's not the best coffee or pastries in Lisbon, the building is historic and beautiful. We just popped in as a quick stop and stood at one of the tables next to the front counter. It has a pleasant atmosphere and is worth a visit if in the area.

Not the best pastel de nata in town, but the other pastries are all pretty good and their coffees and espressos are great. Very quick and cheap breakfast!

I know people who swear that this place has the best pastries in town. I loved the interior and feeling of this shop. The pastries however, were just okay. The custard in the tarts was too sweet and thick--almost dry. The onslaught on tourists, most racing toward the toilets didn't make for a relaxing visit. You can see and feel... More

Ate a nice Chevre salad, omelette and a small bottle of VInho verde for my last lunch in Lisboa. Friendly staff and good tasting meal.

Nice old building with beautiful interior. Sells local parties for take away but (if can find a table) you can also sit inside and enjoy a good coffee. The place can get very busy!

Staying in Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores

Neighborhood Profile
Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores
A pending candidate to become a World Heritage Site, Lisbon's downtown (the "Baixa Pombalina", or simply "Baixa") is a perfect example of anti-earthquake construction, having been rebuilt following the 1755 earthquake by the famous Marquês de Pombal (hence its name). Its offer is vast: restaurants and cafes in Rossio and Restauradores, outlets and shops in the Áurea, Augusta, Prata and other famous streets, the imponent Praça do Comércio and its Arch, the luxury shops along the Avenida da Liberdade, this is the beating heart of the city center. The Baixa also grants easy access to trains leading to Sintra, the trams that go around the Castle hill, old neighborhoods or even take you to Belém, and Lisbon's traditional restaurants and cafes. Considering a visit to the Fashion and Design Museum (free entrance) and don't forget to try the famous liquor, "ginjinha"!
