We had visited the Belem Tower and we were on the way to the Padrao dos Descobrimentos when we decided to take a bit of time out and get something to eat here. Quick service but average food at prices that I personally thought were a little expensive but obviously it is located between important tourist sites so the prices... More

We found this restaurant by accident while walking from Belem Tower looking for late lunch place and we enjoyed every minute there. From the moment we entered - we were greeted very warm, host greeted us very friendly and respectfully... More

Vela Latina is located in a very nice surronding near the Torre de Belem (although it has no view on it or the Tagus River). The food and the service is good but clearly they charge for the location. It is mainly a business restaurant, and the for for what yu get you can eat cheaply elsewhere.

I loved the fish, veal carpaccio and a Grand Mainier gelato that was amazing! Great recommendation on a non expensive Vinho Verde. I think some reviews are from the cafeteria that is right by the side of the restaurant.

My husband and I were looking for a place to have lunch when we saw Vela Latina! It was an agreeable surprise! I had a melon soup that I was simply delicious! The main dish was a codfish with corn "migas"that I loved too! The dessert was very special too:a sorbet of vodka and lemon! We were glad we found... More

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.
