OK, I get it that this is a finely decorated "Old World" cafe/restaurant, but you can't eat or drink ambience. A cafe should be known for its food and drink first and foremost. This place is way overpriced -- we just had a cup of coffee each with a croissant and toast, and the price was nearly €30! And the food is nothing special. You get the same for perhaps €5 at other local cafes, and I think the money is better spent elsewhere to support the small shops.

Too loud, to full, too expensive! Unfriendly staff, not a nice atmosphere. Great to take photos, Very elegant chandeliers and furniture- BUT. It lacks personality

Lots of people and the waitstaff was still very attentive. The place was absolutely packed when we arrived and we were able to get a table and order fairly quickly. Best for a nice long lunch/afternoon tea. Not a quick coffee spot. Beautiful architecture and interesting decor inside.

Interesting and historical place. You must wait to be seated since it's very crowded. We had a cappuccino - 5 € each.

Very elaborate traditional cafe. Afternoon tea was good but very expensive. Served Natas do Belem were very nice but really a Lisbon speciality. Very much a "been there, seen it done it" place
