Yummy!

The line is long but the pastries are an experience! They serve them to you warm, if you want a table you go inside and wait for someone to get up and leave.

I love Egg Custard Tarts. We eat them on Sunday's at DimSum and we call them Dan Tat...Dan = Egg, I guess Tat = Tart. Anyway, I love them. The Chinese Dim Sum ones are very different than the Macau ones or the ones from Portugal such as the Pastel de Belem ones or the Pastel de Natas that you... More

Absolutely fabulous and delicious. Loved the decor, very friend staff. Don't be put off by the queues, plenty of seating through the other side of shop. Check out the ladies and men's wc 😁

You can have the same pastels with same taste anywhere in Lisboa, only with different name and cheaper prices and without waiting in the queue. The cafeteria was crowded and noisy even in the off-season. We only visited because it was recommended by everyone.... social pressure makes you do stupid things! :D

Portuguese custard tarts (pasteis de natas) are divine and the best place to eat them, still warm, dusted with cinamon, is the Pasteleria/Fabrica in Belem. The cafe is always busy but worthwhile waiting for a table to have your coffee and warm custard tarts!

Definitely worth the trip to Belem for the original Pastel. We didn't eat in but rather bought a bag of Pastels (served at just the right temperature not too hot and not cold) and took them over the to the riverbank to eat and watch the sun set. Well the smell was so inviting that half of them didn't make... More

This restaurant is very busy, but they are managing the crowd quite well. At the end it is worthy, because the Pastel de Belem is very tasty!

Staying in Belem

Neighborhood Profile
Belem
Belém is the "capital of the Portuguese Discoveries" and a photographer's paradise. You can spend an entire day exploring this neighborhood: monuments (Jerónimos Monastery, Belém Tower, Monument to the Discoveries), museums (Coach Museum, Centro Cultural de Belém) and breathtaking views of the Tagus river will make your visit worth your time. Belém also offers a variety of restaurants and cafes, namely the famous - and delicious - "Pastéis de Belém" (typical Portuguese custard tarts; make sure you buy an extra box of those!). Easily accessible from Lisbon's historic center, Belém is a must-do, especially if you're spending more than one day visiting the Portuguese capital.
