I thought tart is not my thing. But as soon as I have tasted tart in this place, I just realized tart is my thing. No, let me just rephrase my words, tart of Pasteis de Belem is my thing. Love it!

These pasteles were soooo good that after you try it the one you eat around the city are not tasteful enough. By the way make you sure you order it one by one because they would come out of fresh and hot just perfectly done

It's just before the Jeronimos Monastery . Prepare for long queues for take away custard cakes . If you opt to seat inside it's much faster as it's huge inside . We had 3 Pasteis de natas ( the very famous custard cakes ) , 2 coffees and a small bottle of water, all for a mere 8€. We very... More

We expected more. Pasteis de Belem aren't the most tasteful cakes in Lisbon. We didn't like the taste. Very touristic and extremely crowded. Nothing special

In all the years of using TripAdvisor, I've never come across any restaurant or hotel with the amount of ratings this place has. SO, had to go!

Everyone says you have to go, then you get there and realise that everyone does. The always seems to be a queue. We joined it and were plesently suprised at how quickly it moved. We waited 10 minutes for a table. Service was good and the custard tarts delicous. Worth a visit to say you have been if nothing else

Joined the throng of thousands of tourists queueing to get into this now very famous shop. As well as the legendary custard tarts we also bought some beef samosas which were almost nicer than the custard tarts! But not quite...

Really special place. I tried many pastis, but only Pastis de Belem tasted extremely good. Interior and azulejos are very interesting. When I was about 11 AM, I could see how to prepare these delicious pastis.

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.
