We ended up in a very crowded cafe due to terrential rain in Lisbon. So we bought some pasteis de belem and took them with us so we could enjoy them in our hotel. They are truly amazing! Very tasty! You can't visit Lisbon without having tasted them!

Good old traditions are never a delusion... after trying some pastel de nata in the center we came and tried one here... another level!.. and it is served warm inside... awesome. We took a chamusa (some kind of samosa) and a croquette of bacalao... everything so good (but these two were cold)... deserved to be visited!

I cannot believe the poor service we received here. Was it because we were a table of 5 Asian? We have been seating for 15 min while everyone around us got served. They looked through us or stared at us and then ostensibly went to see another table.. We eventually had a nice waiter coming after having waived at 3... More

We stopped to try the house specialty, a custard tart. Great with a cafe con leche. Free bathrooms in the back were clean but a bit crowded due to tourist groups.

Pasteis de Belem and Pastel de Nata are awesome. It's a must. Custard, you can add cinnamon on top. Cheap.

It's a very crowded café but you shouldn't miss to try the best Natas in town! They served the delicious Natas still warm and they taste unbelievable good *__* PS: add a pinch of cinnamon on top of your Nata ;)

So the famous cakes of Belem are definitely famous for a reason. For just about 1,30 you will a delicious, fresh, creamy and crunchy treat. Perfect with a coffee and be sure to bring a napkin. Cheers

While tourist-oriented, you won't find a better pastel de nata in Lisbon, Crowded, noisy, but good, friendly service. A rabbit-warren of rooms, including an outside patio, for use when the weather is right. Don't wait outside in lines, go inside, sit down, have a bica and a pastel de nata (and maybe a gingina...).

After visit Monastery Belem, if you wanna try famous Porteguese pastry called Nata this is the place taste for. This is the birth place of Nata , there are better patisseries Lisbon cith center which makes better Nata than original location.

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.
