Amazing! We tried 6 of them and couldn't get enough! Really cheap too! Worth it to sit inside and have table service and eat the pasteis warm!

We visited here for the famous pasteis de Belem and I have to say that they lived up to our expectation. Don't be put off by the queues, as these are generally for the take out. There are around 400 seats inside and the service is quick. Go in and take 15 to enjoy.

The place is huge and overcrowded. Cakes are really good but I wouldn't visit it again since it's very touristy and not really clean.

This is one of those things you just 'have to do'. We were lucky enough to walk straight in and order four custard pasties and walk out in under two minutes. We walked across to the river to eat them. The custard pastries are the 'must haves', and although they're good, personally I wouldn't buy them again.

Too many travelers for who lives in Lisbon - the success of this fantastic typical pastry made of this café a crowded place (even if they expanded a lot the place in the last few years). A must do and try for any traveler passing by Lisbon - especially because of he various monuments and museums nearby.

Something you have to try! Wonderful taste and service. I enjoyed the place, around 8PM is not usually crowded.

We had already sampled many custard tarts in Lisbon, but decided we had to have some here as well as we arrived in Belem as it is supposed to be the original and the best. We had coffee and pastry standing at the counter and both were great. You might expect a tourist rip off sort of price, but it... More

Don't be put off by the queue - that is only for take-aways. Bypass the queuers and go inside. There are at least 30 tables in various different rooms. The cakes are the best l have ever tried and we paid €5.50 for two cakes, one coffee and a white port.

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.
