Nata is amazing, but the waiting time is too long. I waited 15-30 minute just to take my order, than the guy forget the part of the order and the rest came surrounded with coffee. Every bottom of glass was dirty of coffee but it's...not the end of the world. Nata is really good. Sponge muffin not really tasty.More

If you are in Lisbon you can't miss this pastry. Besides the space itself which is beatiful, these Portuguese Tarts are unique and it would be difficult to find nicer ones I garantee you. They are so creamy on the inside and crunchy on the...outside. And you will get them still hot from the oven, which is even better. Don't forget to add some cinnamon and sugar powder on top. Yummy. Enjoy!More

I went to Porto and Lisbon central, tried some and they were good but nothing compared to this Pasteis de Belém, a mix of crusty and softness with a delicious taste. I am in love !! The hot chocolate is thick and rich, It suited...perfectly with the rainy day we were going through. This place warmed my heart (and my stomach)More

Believe me we did a lot of research into the pastis de nata.these are the very best and a wonderful bakery. Visited in this poor economic climate so didn't have to queue, which is apparently usual

Always busy. Especially pre-CoVid! Pastries are good. Branding and marketing are excellent. Spacious interior. Clean restrooms. Take-out lines can be very long but the wait is never very long at all. The take out counter operates like a well-oiled machine. They also have an excellent...selection of aperitif's and dessert wine pairings. We'll definitely go back when in the area!More

Wan to know why all the reviews - this restaurant is the original recipe for the Portuguese custard tart (don't know the name), but it also serves a selection of other tase items along with coffee and beer... We ordered a selection of items including...pastries, cakes, coffee and beer. Overall the experience was delightful and satisfying. the savoury pastries basic - veggie crepes in reality is a deep fried veggie sprig roll found in most Chinese takeaways this was the only disappointment. The coffee tasted good, the beers chilled he cakes where fresh and tasty. Granted service was not 5* but they do a good job refreshing tables within minutes for the constant flow of people (Disinfecting every part), orders on our table and all around us taken within 5 minutes of seating, quick service - there wasn't all the mamby pamby how may I help today but didn't effect the overall experience. The inside seating in the first two rooms are cosy or you have a larger more commercial back space still nice, the garden was very nice worth trying there first in my option. When the bill came was expecting a lot more but we where pleasantly surprised normally commercialised rated places comes with a rip off tourist price this place did not :) ObriganoMore

This is the real origin of the typical cake "pastéis de nata". There is usually a big queue, however, it is worth because the pies are very tasty. It is very close to "monastery of jerónimos", so, perfect for a break after the visit.

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.
