It takes a bit of determination to get to this cult bakery on the outskirts of Lisbon. We took a train and walked to the bakery on a very hot day (31C). The bakery is a labyrinth of rooms-- no hostess to seat you. Despite the rather uncomfortable warmth there was no air conditioning or even electric fans. It might... More

Definitely worth a visit even if it's touristy... it really lives up to expectation! Amazing Pasteis de Nata - served warm with cinnamon, custard cream was just the right texture with its creamy centre. The table service was very fast and staff was helpful. Interesting little shop artefacts dotted around the place.

Arrive hungry and order as many different things as you can. This is not just a pastry destination, but great for drinks and lunch. It's not fancy, but it has history and excellent food. I visit every time I'm in Lisbon and wish it was closer to my usual accommodation. You may need to be a bit patient with the... More

Food is everything to me, and really high quality food can make me emotional. The first bite I took of the egg tarts almost reduced me to tears of joy. Dessert is not usually my favourite part of a meal, but those tarts were one of the most delicious things I ate in Lisbon, and absolutely one of the most... More

A group of us were told that this is the original home of the pasteis de nata and that they hold the original recipe for the pasteis de nata. Whilst there was a long queue the line moved quickly and we were at the front of the queue within 10 minutes. The restaurant is a well oiled machine and you... More

I've had A LOT of Pasteis de Nata's but these were AMAZING!! The pastry was nice & crubbly while the custard cream was just the right texture. Definitely take some for eating later but point to note is that don't save them for the next day - you have to eat them when they are still fresh.

We enjoyed the pastries and egg tarts but found a better place in Lisbon and without the massive queues. Staff unpleasant at the end of the day,very crowded place and little enjoyment to sit in. Once in Belem take away and try outside.

At least best Pasteis in Portugal. We have been to Pasteis de Belem countless times, each visit is more special than the other. The service is clockwork, the flavor phenomenal. Be prepared to break diet, it's a real challenge not to eat more than one. Don't be fooled with the queue in front of the shop, there are dozen halls... More

We were recommended to come here by some locals, i had my doubts as its a good bus ride out of the centre to come for a custard tart but we wanted to see the Monastery which is next door and well worth a visit. We contemplated giving this place a miss due to the large queue of people but... 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.
