What else should I add after almost 25k positive ratings? The "pasteis" are served warm and freshly. They taste great cinnamon and icing sugar. Absolutely an unforgettable taste!!

Worth taking a tourist break. Do Have the most famous pastry in all of Portugal. Really! Stop and have a cup of their coffee and the custard pastry. I forgot its actual name but it is what most people order. The take-out line goes down the block. We went at around 10 A.M. There were a few tables inside. PERFECT... More

Nice place for breakfast or snack, more than 400 sits but fast and efficient service. The place is really for tourists, but is not overpriced, and the pasties are really the best in town

First time I went it was just before closing so very empty! I have been lucky to go again twice and both times it has been so busy you have had to queue. It is worth the experience so leave plenty of time and expect to queue. The Pastel de nata are excellent and if served warm, just amazing!

This is one of the must do things in Lisbon. Avoid weekend afternoons if you don't like long queues.

We had to queue for a table, but only for about 5 minutes. This restaurant is obviously popular and deserves to be. Best pasteis de nata I have ever tasted and we took some back to our apartment. Highly recommend that if you are visiting Lisbon you visit this wonderful place. Our waiter spoke perfect English, which was a plus... More

Great pasteis a this famous bakery. The service is good and friendly but it is very busy indeed and thus quite noisy and hard to find a table.

Yes, this is supposed to be one of the oldest bakeries in Lisbon. Yes, it's supposed to be the "home" of the wonderful custard tarts you get everywhere in Lisbon. But it's total tourist trap and the lines are ridiculous and not worth the wait. There's nothing about the service, food or wait that justifies this place or the food.... More

It's true what the other reviewers say. Don't order just one, as you would definitely be ordering some more. I think it's worth to go in and sit down to enjoy the tarts there. Walk around, and you'll be amazed that the seating inside is really huge.

Staying in Belem

Neighborhood Profile
Belem
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.
