The Pasteis here are the best in Lisbon. Tried others and did not love. Visited here and my mind was changed. Delicious. Crowded with tourists but line moves fast and you can find a table. It is easier in the morning but we had no problem in the afternoon. Stop by!

So good that we lined up twice after we devoured the first dozen&half that we bought ! I expected sub-par pastries to please tourists but these really were the best natas I've ever tasted

Skip the line and grab a table in the back. They are worth the hype. Bring home a box of the pasteles to enjoy later.

First the pasteis are awesome! Pastry is crispy and light, the cream is full of flavour and melting. Plus the neighbourhood and the shop are very cute. If you visit Belem you should absolutely go there!

after the exciting walk through the Tropical garden which has provided me with dates with app.67 peacocks I was hungry like a wolf. the delicious spinach pie and the Belem pasteis. The taste was excellent, and after the last pasteis I took another piece of spinach pie.

The small cakes are fine, and the place is really very old and they keep the quality for many decades. Many coffee shops, cook similar cakes, and honestly, most of them are really as good as Pasteis de Belem. The cake shop, is located in a very special area of Lisbon, with hundreds years of Portuguese history. I have seen... More

I simply loved it here, the food was great. I will go back the next time I am in Lisbon. Be warned however, you may not want to eat Nata anywhere else.

You should go for the pastels. They are an argument good enough for going all the way to belem from Lisbon. You HAVE to test these pasteis ! They are cackly and dewy and sweet and cinnamony in the same time. Also very near to the Jeronimo's Monastery (great place to visit, a must see in Portugal)

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.
