The history alone is worth a visit to this Beaux-Arts museum of pastry, but it's still baking and always fun. Sometimes crowded. Who doesn't like marvelous pastries? And a cuppa. And to sit a spell? Pretend it's 1900 and that you have nothing more to do for an hour!

After a hard day's sightseeing in Sintra, we arrived back at Rossio in the late afternoon, and headed over to the Confeitaria Nacional for tea and cake. We went up the spiral staircase to the counter at the back, where the young staff were very friendly. The front section was posher and more expensive with waiter service. There was a... More

Our group of 3 dropped in for breakfast, and loved the ambiance of classic decor from past centuries. Their range of pastels de nata were intriguing for the 4 flavors, not just the usual vanilla, and available in mini size to make sampling so much easier. Once you try these, you'll want more, so we returned that evening to buy... More

The place inside was so beautiful, its interiors were very art nouveau. It was apparently established in 1829 and showed no signs of slowing down. At the entry level was as the pastry shop with its delicacies on display. We were seated upstairs in the bright and airy dining area. There were a lot of sandwiches, cakes, pastries and even...

We took a coffee and a pastel de nata. The price was not expensive and the coffee tasted good. The bad point was that we had to eat it standing up.

Lovely spot to have your view of Torre de Belem when eating your Pasteis de natal with a cuppa. However I had noticed major concerns from at least 2 customers with the wrong charges made on their credit cards. Although these were rectified they had major impact on the delays with orders. With cash payers there were no change available... More

Delicious patisserie with memorable pastel de natas - we had 2! Historical interior is lovely. Service was surprisingly friendly and helpful, given how busy it was. An enjoyable stop on our Lisbon adventures!

Me and my partner had early breakfast here. Minimum 2 pastel de natas per head and a bolo de berlim and meia lua. The sugar rush we had was enough to make us going til 2 pm for lunch!!! The place is so old and beautiful old fashion Lisbon. Like a museum. Worth to visit and eat there. Highly recommended

I didn't think it was possible to have a rubbish nata but I was wrong! The ones here had soggy pastry and the custard didn't taste great compared to others I've had.

Staying in Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores

Neighbourhood 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"!
