First I thought we entered a small coffeeshop, but when going to the toilet it was really a huge place. Ok, it is very touristic, but the place is still very nostalgic. The place for a Pasteis de Belem. You can choose to sit down or take a baca (espresso) at the bar with a pasties (or any other nice... More

Heard about this place, had to try it. Lines were confusing, as there us a group of people waiting outside for the friends inside buying pastries. Find the legitimate line/ queue. The pasteis were very warm, flaky. We liked them. Not sure that they are better than other bakeries, but we loved them. They gad a decent system inside, just... More

we went on recommendation and chose to eat in anbd have a tart. The place felt really impersonal and is a tourist trap. Didn't find the waitress helpful and ended up leaving without ordering anything. Didn't live up to the hype for us.

In Lisbon, there's really only one reason to visit a pastry shop and that's for the Nata, the famous Portuguese tart. While there are plenty of options for obtaining these, there's only one place that's been making them the same way for the better part of two centuries (since 1834). While not necessarily a must-do as far as attractions are... More

Hands down, it is the best custard tart I've tried in Lisbon. If you're going to visit Belem (monastery and Belem Tower), then you have to go to this restaurant. It is approximately 2-3 mins walk from the monastery. The restaurant is darn huge, so don't be worried if you can't find a seat, just go further in. Service is... More

#1 most awesome egg tart on this planet. Not worth joining the long lines for dine in. Takeaway line is long but moves faster. Grab no fewer than 2 tarts (1 is never enough), sprinkle icing sugar and cinnamon to your taste, and indulge!

If you do nothing else while in Belem, step to the take-away counter at Pasteis de Belem and order the custard tart. Definitely have them sprinkle cinnamon and powdered sugar on top. Suggest you get a couple - as one will only make you want more.

The Nata's (world famous Portuguese custard/egg(?)) tart is the best you will probably ever have. I have two friends who are Portuguese and they say this is the best place to have a Nata. The queues and everything aren't for no reason (unlike the Monastery) If we stayed nearby, i'd visit 3 times a day! :p Try hang around the... More

These Pasteis should be illegal, or there should be some daily limit to how many a person is allowed to consume. They are aimply magnificent. By the way, don't be misled by the size of the cafe from the outside. When you get inside it goes on and on from room to room. It must be able to seat hundreds... More

I had the best egg tart ive ever tasted in my life here. The crust was crispy and caramelised. Custard was not too sweet but perfect. Best eated immediately. Interesting packaging of 6 if you wanna take away. I will recommend if if you are heading to belem for the other tourist attractions. Only 1.05 euro each. A real steal... More
