So this is the second time I have been to this place in 5 years. I have tried a lot of pastel de nata, but theirs is by far one of the best. The dough is very crispy and the curd tasty. I am only...giving it a 3/5 because the other food they serving didn’t look that good. I have also had what they call an avocado toast. It is a slice of bread with an avocado spread and an egg on top. The bread was not toasted and it was not tasty at all. It was super dry, hard to eat and I had to finish my juice faster than expected in order to not choke. The place is okay with an outside area, the staff that was cleaning the table was looking at me strangely. When I finished my meal, I brought the plate to the staff, he took the plate without even looking at me and turned around. But that won’t stop me to come back for their speciality.More

This is the place to come for Portugal’s best pastel de natas. Locals and tourists alike flock here. It is €6.90 for 6 or €1.15 for 1 and they are incredible. There is always a crowd of people outside taking photos and buying pastries but...the queue goes very quick.More

OMG! Perfectly warm, soft, crunchy and satisfying. We ate many pastel da nata's in several places, all of which were excellent, but these are the best! For good reason these are called Pastel da BELEM not pastel da nata.

We got off of the tram 15 at the Jeronimo monestary and welked back to the Pasteis shop. We bought 2 Pasteis and they were nice and warm! We sat down in the park across the street and ate them. They were soooo good. The...best we had in Lisbon!More

There is a reason this one is the best pastel in Portugal. Absolute taste! There is a long queue to get one so prefer to sit down instead where there is no queue. You can get your nata, coffee and water before continuing your exploring....Definitely recommend.More

Lived up to the hype. Yum! Went twice during our first couple of days in Portugal. First through the to go line which moves quickly. The second the next morning to sit down inside. Either will get you the same great tasting pastel de Belem...(pastel de nata or Portuguese egg tart).More

Oh yes! That’s what we did! The price is the same and your server can bring you the pastries when you’re ready to leave and just charge it on your bill.
