Pasteis de Belem are really delicious. Don't be fooled by the queue outside or by the full tables at the entrance as the place is huge. You will surely find a table to enjoy a coffee and a pastel de nata if you just keep going inside. Service is a bit slow though. A true Portuguese experience

Perfect pastel de natas, crunchy from the outside and spft from the inside. Always warm and fresh. No pastel de nata will satisfy you anymore after these ones.

The Nata melted in my mouth. The hot chocolate was so ridiculously chocolate. I could live in this place.

Just the best custard pastry ever created. It's obvious why they have been in business for so long. Be prepared for a really long wait to get in though. Lots of times lines around the block.

This is the most famous and delicious egg tart in Lisbon with always a long queue for take away. If you have time, enjoy egg tart with a cup of coffee!

This restaurant is an historic place known for the delicious egg custard pastries. Everyone we spoke with told us this is the best place for them. Don't know about that but they certainly were delicious.

If you get the opportunity to visit this shop, do so. They are honestly the best Portugese tarts I have ever tasted. We took 2 separate train journeys just to taste these tarts and it was well worth it. The constant queue outside the shop bears testimony to how delicious they are.

Well worth the bus ride to sample these iconic tarts. Only waited a few minutes for a table for 6 and the bill for cakes and teas, coffees very reasonable. The atmosphere is busy and fun and staff pleasant.

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.
