Being that I have a sweet tooth, and this place is world renowned, I had to try it. The pastries are delicious, but it is a tourist trip, and its lost its simplicity. You see the long lines of tourists, and all the hullabaloo. We stopped there on the way back from visiting St. Jeronimos... read more

I wanted to try this as I have red a lot about it. However, in this cakes nothing much special. The custard I know from English kitchen. A long queue also didn't make us happy but it's ok. One thing was funny is a price. One cake cost 1,05€... Ok... BUT they left also a prices for the 6 and... More

Our Portuguese friends took us to Belem while visiting Lisbon, as real custard fans we were were not disappointed.

Best custard tarts I've eaten! If you have the time opt for the eat in queue. There are over 400 seats and saved us waiting in line, we sat ourselves and were served within a few minutes (you can even order extra at your table to takeaway).

If you visit lisbon, you can't miss the 'Pasteis de Belém, a delicious little cake, baked with fresh cream and eggs. You can watch the pastry being done and eat them still warm.

The Portuguese tarts are a must try while in Lisbon. Really delicious and cheap and so much history. Also Belem is a cool area to wander around so definitely worth a visit

This is flagged up in the guide books as a must-do experience and it doesn't disappoint. Buy a blue route bus tour around Lisbon, and you can get off in Bélem to the west of the city centre. It's only a few steps to this bakery, which as well as their famous "pastel de nata" egg tarts , also offers... More

Bite of sweet, a bit of the history. I even don't like that kind of desserts but didn't miss it and I think this is the place to taste and enjoy of Pastel de nata! Looks very tempting how that rich tick cream with golden crust nestled in a crispy pastry, hot and dusted by cinnamon. It's overcrowded but the... More
