We had heard s much about these pastries that we had tried them in other places but none compared even closely to what we had here. You can order and eat at the count or sit at at a table in one of the many rooms that sprawl like a rabbit warren. They are very reasonably priced at 1.05 euros and are baked to perfection with a delicious custardy filling in the best crust ever served warm straight out of the oven.I defy anyone to eat only one.

We had several 'Pasteis de nata', I don't think you can really stop at one. They are delicious, with or without sugar and cinnamon. The service is quick but a bit curt.

5 stars for the custard filled Pasteis De Nata that they serve here (call them Pasteis de Belem... at their bakery). They are sooo good. If you go to Portugal, make sure you visit Lisbon. When you are in Lisbon, make sure you set aside some time to get on a quick bus or tram ride and visit Belem. When you are in Belem, you MUST try one of these Pastries!

ENJOY

The Pastel de Belem is very good here! Mainly when you are luck and find a table and eat it still warm.

Ignore the line to buy direct from the bakery. Instead go inside and find a table. The line was quite long outside, but once inside it was not difficult to find a little table for two. We were glad to have a seat , rest and people watch for awhile. Our waiter brought us 2 luscious, warm custard tarts. They bring powdered sugar and cinnamon in little aluminum shakers. The waiter said the more you put on, the better. The tarts are amazing, and we wish we had ordered more. On your way out of the shop you walk through the iconic bakery area, where there is still a long line of people waiting to taste a wonderful Pasteis de nata.
