Very busy place, but it looks like that is the must to visit, when you visiting Belém. The pasteis are really delicious (and addictive).

The place is a must go! The pastel de Belem exists everywhere but these ones are normally just finished, hot and crunchy.

It is said that when you are in Lisbon, you should try their pasteis (a cup made of dough with a typical cream inside). You can find the best pasteis in Belem, at Pasteis de Belem. So we went there. I have to admit that the pasteis are nice. But for the rest I wouldn't go here again. The service... More

Being from Toronto, we are not custom to eating such amazing treats. I couldn't believe the line up but the staff move quickly and take orders efficiently. The best Natas in the world!! Must see if you are in Lisbon.

Well worth the wait in line for these sweet custard pastries where they were invented. Eat them straightaway while they're still warm!

It's a very big but busy place, you have to be lucky in order to find a free table. The Pasteis are really delicious and it's a must do for when you are around.

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.
