The Pasteleria de Belem makes the most incredible pastel de nata. If you are unfamiliar with them, they are small round "cups" made of layers of crisp filo dough and filled with the most heavenly creamy custard baked until the top is a bit darkened. One can order them there at a table with coffee, tea or hot chocolate. Some... More

Everything I read said this was a must try place and I must concur. The line was super long but went super fast so don't lay that put you off!!! And at only 1.05 Euro a piece it was very reasonable priced too!!

People rave about the Pasties and rightly so. The place was heaving when we were there. It's a real magnet for lunch and snacks!

Need not say more, the pasteis de nata was so good that my family and I went back to get 2 dozens of it before we left for Porto. It was that good. The one from Macau is nothing in comparison. Forget everything else in Lisbon, you have to try this. Oh and on a more well rounded note, the... More

They have, hands down, the best Pasteis De Nata (custard cream pies) and that is coming from someone who does not even like custard. The lines are long, if you're planning on take away. Try to squeeze in the shop itself and hang by the sides till you snag a table. The servers are very busy but quick and the... More

If there is a line, wait. If it is crowded, wait It is not expensive and is the best pastel de nata ever. I'm not exaggerating... It's worth. Eat 2 over there and take a box home, you will not regret.

We got the Tagus Bus tour and got off at the famous Belem. What a treat they have pies and pastries too die for. The custard tart was delightful, cruncyy flaky pastry with a warm creamy filling. Amazing.

Undoubtedly the best we tasted while in Lisbon. The place itself though is nothing special with old school grunting service. Take away is probably best, but warn you that there can be some bid queues.

Staying in Belem

Neighbourhood 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.
