You will stand in line for a long wait as tourist clamour for these custard tarts. Why I don't know because you can purchase them across the road cheaper and you won't get trampled on in the rush.

Custard tarts are all over Portugal and in Southern Spain - we had read about this being the birth place of the Portuguese tart but the cafe has nothing different to offer and the food was ordinary. We had heard it Is easier to go and take a table rather than waiting in queue for tarts. Our order included quiche,... More

The place is not so close to Lisbon as I expected, but it is worth it. The little pasteis de Belem are excellent and not expensive.

After waiting in a line for about ten minutes, I got to the take-away counter. Obviously, with such an amount of people, the cashiers are not the nicest and you do not get any personalized experience, but you do get nice flaky tarts. Eat them while they are warm!!!

I was a bit concerned about the length of the takeaway line but it moved really quickly. The pasteis was absolutely delicious. So fresh. However, felt unable to order anything else from the takeaway counter to takeaway as I didn't know what things were called and I was too far away to be able to point!! So I just had... More

Nice and cheap. Unfortunately too much crowded and not so much clean. Anyway all I ordered was very good, especially the pasteis de nata. Recommended if you are visiting the nearby attractions.

Delicious pasteis from secret old Belem recipe with great on-site restaurant seating 400 with fast service! Get there early as the queue gets long but it moves quickly and is definitely worth the wait! You get to see them preparing them too and served hot with a coffee is a great start to the day! You can buy to take... More

Staying in Belem

Neighborhood Profile
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.
