There is a lot of space to get a place at a table. The Pastreis are very delicious! It's a must have to do in Lisbon

We tried these little gems and were not disappointed. The restaurant is huge but the takeout section although long lines move very quickly. The pasties are worth lining up for. Fresh and delicious. Just for fun we also bought a couple from the Starbucks next door. Don't waste your money! There is no comparison. No matter how long the line,... More

Following the advice of most Lisbon visitors, we made the trip to Pasteis de Belem which is located a short bus ride from city center Lisbon. We were not disappointed with the custard tarts. Best we ever tasted plus incredibly affordable. HOWEVER, be warned, pickpockets are everywhere. While waiting in line, someone lifted my wife's wallet. It was never recovered.... More

On a mission to find the best Portuguese Tarts (Pastel de Nata) in Lisbon, we passed here on way to the Monastery in Belem. The queue was massive, even in the pouring rain, so we passed and on the way back it was a shorter queue of 30 or so. Queue moved well, as they have an order line and... More

You'd find Portuguese tarts at most bakeries. However the tarts from here are certainly the best. The pastry is of the right texture. Not too thick. The filling was smooth and creamy. It wasn't too sweet. Indeed it's a must try.

Although the pastry origins are linked to France it seems, it's certainly worth a visit going to the Belem Tower in Lisbon. "Since 1837, locals and visitors to Lisbon have visited the bakery to purchase fresh from the oven pastéis, sprinkled with cinnamon and powdered sugar. Their popularity normally results in long lines at the take-away counters, in addition to... More

We were concerned about the long lines outside the store, but everything moved very quickly and efficiently. Pastries were wonderful.

If you're ever even remotely near to Belém you'll have to visit this place. It is the birthplace of the most famous Portugese pastry: the pasteis de nata. You can see them get made, get some to take away or sit down in one of the many rooms and have a drink and something to eat. Have at least one... More

Try the delicious and local pastry called Pastel de Belém with a coffee. It is sweet and reminds all the pastries made by grandmas. Buy the pack with 6 and enjoy!

Staying in Belem

Neighbourhood 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.
