Lovely pastry shop which sells other stuff as well, the sandwiches are also great. We were recommended the custard pastry ... it was yummy. People say they have a special recipe which is more than 150 years old ... don't know about its authenticity but yes, the eatables here were tasty and the coffee was also very good. Take away...

This is where the Portuguese egg tart was invented apparently. And it's heavenly. There's a long queue to get in but worth it.

They are so good. Baked in the Fábrica, so always fresh. They are cheap too, so have them with a cup of coffee. At the Fábrica there were lots of people waiting outside, but inside were seats available. I don't think you'll have to wait long, if there isn't a table free. I don't have an opinion about if the...

This was our first stop in Lisbon, and our last, too, before we left for the airport. It was love at first bite and we ended up gobbling down so many of them! Got 2 boxes before we left the country too.

If you say Lisbon, you say Belem. If you say Belem you say Pasteis de Belem. Go for it and enjoy. You will have to queue but it will pay off.

Strange place, a very hectic and busy takeaway line that herds you through like cattle. The custard tarts are good - very sweet - although there are places (Aloma for one) which are better in my opinion. This is down to personal taste though. Was told if you want to relax there are loads of seats inside which would be... More

We weren't sure we'd actually stop in because it seemed like such a tourist attraction, but I am so glad we did. These guys make the most incredible pasteis I've tasted--far better than anything else we had in Portugal. A local guy told us not to wait in the take out line, but to instead slide in to the restaurant... More

Don't care home amazing the pasteis de Belem are, the queues are not worth the wait! Better places to get a peaceful coffee and pasteis de natal

I bought the pastel de nata several times . They give you icing sugar and cinnamon to go with it. It is so tasty. I love it. So crunchy as well . I agree with other reviews. The line up is big but the service is quick especially for take away.

Don't let the long lines in front for take away or a table deter you. Slip in from the side and search the connecting rooms for an open table. Sit and order at least two de natas per person. They are that good, the best we'eve had anywhere in Lisbon and over three years of visits, we've eaten a lot!... 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.
