    The original pastel de nata - you can't miss this when you're in Lisbon. Don't queue for takeaway, go for table seating and order a few with a coffee. Then order a box or two for takeaway!

    Don't miss trying these fresh Pastéis in great tile-style interior on your Lisbon visit. Don't be put off by the take-away queues. Just go ahead inside the cafe. There are many rooms.

    Better to sit down & grab a sandwich too (big enough to share if you're not ravenous). Don't forget to use the cinnamon at table! Pasties are like phyllo dough, churro and Chinese egg tarts had a baby

    Don't bother queueing - there are loads of seats in the back with food and drinks at takeaway prices. There are two massive rooms at the back - keep going back and to the right and you'll find them.

    Egg-cellent tarts. Cant miss it if you're in Lisbon, the must try food. Simply awesome and goes really well with a cup of hot chocolaty goodness. Two thumbs up!

    Ignore the long line out front and head back to take one of the 400 seats they have. If your not sure what else to order the waiters have photos on their phones so just ask. Everything delicious.

    Best pastel de Nata! Even though taking some back home (as a present for the loved ones or for oneself) is a must I would definitely recommend eating them there. Warm and with cinnamon on top.

    Oldest and owner of pastel de nata pastry. You might have to wait in a queue but it is worth it! Best pastel da nata in Lisbon. Take the train or the sightseeing boat and get off at Belem.

    Awesome pasties (small crisy custard tarts). Huge rush and long queues. But it is worth it. Eat them while they are hot. Right next to Belem stop. Reach via bus 727, 728, tram 15.

    The service is VERY slow in the table area. Bring a lot of time and patience with you. And discover the Latino/a in you and be demanding.But yes, no doubt the pasteis de nata are amazing!

    Their portuguese tarts are So good. For takeaway orders they include a sachet of cinnamon and a sachet of icing sugar but they are perfect on their own. Line gets long but moves quickly.

    Natas were really nice. Inside is so crowded but it is teally big and there is space for everyone. Instead of taking away try table service, you will wait less. Worths going all the way.
  • Tereza S.
    A must visit place when in Lisbon. Pastéis de Belém is the classic choice. If you want to skip the line go directly to Take away line. Gets super crowded on weekends.

    A must taste (?) and see. Long lines, either you wait for a table or to take away. For best experience, I recommend you take a seat and try the famous Pastéis

    Supremely busy in the summer! Come visit during the off-peak tourist season if you get a chance and slowly savour your perfect pastel de nata. Also do give the cod pastry & shrimp paste pastry a try!

    Avoid rush hour/daytime. And once you're there, make sure to order already 2 pastéis to start with, cos who are we kidding, you'll want more after you're done with the 1st one ;)

    If you see a long line outside, head inside and go towards the seated area in the back. You will always find a spot to sit over there. And NEVER order just one -that is a crime!!

    You'll find this immediately, you'll see the crowd. When entering, take your order right, pay and continue left, you'll get your pasteis there! It's a puddingcake sort of pastry with cinnamon and sugr

    Beautiful crunchy pastéis. Don't let the queue scare you, it moves fast. You can also sit inside, it has plenty of space(s). Pastel de nata 1,10€.

    cute decor and of course delicious Pastéis but it felt a bit too touristy to me. And I actually preferred the pastéis from the Time Out Market which are made on site and come out still warm.

    Eat at least two!! Delicious and secret recipe from 1837. Go straight to the counter and make the desired number with your fingers (no need to sit inside, queue goes fast). Get them in a box to go!

    Amazing custard tarts. Would recommend going inside and sitting down as much less of a queue. Lived up to all the top reviews and expectations. Drinks were good as well.

    The tastiest, crispest and cheapest(!) Egg Tarts I've had in Lisbon. They actually invented the pastry, no wonder it's a tourist highlight. Tram 15 takes your right to the shop.

    THE pasteis place, but their other stuff is very tasty, too. A definite MUST visit when in Lisbon/Belem. Also: this place is much bigger than you'd think, there is plenty of space in the back!

    The best Pastel de Belém (and only one, the other ones are Nata) I´ve ever had. I was born in Brazil, and this sweet is very popular here, but these ones from Belém are the best, no doubt!
  • Alina c.
    the Pasteis de Nata are still warm from the oven, with a strong egg like flavour, definitely some of the best in Lisbon. Not very keen on the savoury stuff though, The codfish balls were not as good👎

    You can get pastel de nata all over Lisbon, but these are undoubtedly the best. Eat them while they're still warm, sprinkle with cinnamon. Pastry heaven.

    This typical pastry was born here. You'll find always the line here, but then you'll eat a great hot mix of puff pastry and cream! If you want to match it with a coffee the table service is mandatory.

    What a great piece of pastry! Those Pastéis are incredibly good! Despite of the huge line you can find in the pastelaria, the service is really fast, you'll find yourself eating a pasteis in a while.

    The original recipe of the ever popular Pastel de Nata. Tip: Walk in and take a seat in one of the rooms inside. The huge line is for take out.

    Una sola parola: meraviglioso. Immancabile una visita, le pasteis sono squisite. Just few words: wonderful. Amazing pastries with cream, absolutely delicious. Worth a visit, it's a must-see place.

    It really lives up to its hype. You’ve never been to Lisbon if you’ve never tried the pastel de nata here. The pastry is crispy and the custard sweetness is just right.

    Skip the takeaway line and just get table service (there are over 400 seats inside). It's much faster! Birthplace of the venerable pasteis de nata, with a recipe originally developed by nuns

    Don't wait in a huge line! Go inside! There are many rooms and a terrace. And it's also possible to order "to go". And you can enjoy the process of cooking.

    Pastels are divine. Inside the cafe feels like a train station. Better stand in the long line to buy some to go and enjoy them in the park across the street or in front of the Starbucks next door.

    Really great custard tart! The queue looks so long but actually it moves quickly, just bought a box of 6 and finished in few minutes! Then brought another box to the hotel. Finish them soon!

    Skip the mindless line and get table service. The order takeout after you are done and leave full and with pastries to go before people make it halfway through the takeout line.

    Come early, or wait... They're definitely worth the wait! Take a look inside. It's a lot bigger than you'd think. You can even see the Pastéis being made!

    Slightly warm and with cinnamon on top, just great! The line in front of the store seems longer than it is. Sitting outside in the park across the street is way better than inside.

    There are multiple lines for dine-in, but keep walking to the very back to find the fastest line and largest room. The pastries are excellent and worth the wait!

    To avoid queue is quite easy, get into the cafeteria and order the Pastéis de Belém with a coffee or tea, it takes much less time!! Don't miss this place on your visit to Lisbon!!!

    Sometimes, to get a table is faster than take out option. Very good! I should have bought 50 "pastéis de Belém" instead of 6! ;)

    Historic place for pastel de nata. Long queue that moves fast at an industrious pace. Delicious and worth the wait, although I prefer the de nata from Manteigaria :)
  • Raphael L.
    Yes, it's touristy, but there's no way around this place. Whether you get in line and eat your Pasteis in the park across the street, or sit in the massive restaurant area - best pasteis in the world!

    Their signature pastries - Pastéis de Belém - are €1.05 a piece (2012). The whole point of this place is to try them. They also have other baked goods and coffee/alcohol, but these are optional.

    Excellent pastries and savoury options. The service was very quick also. Don’t wait in the line outside, head in the side door and all the way out the back to get a table, heaps of tables Coffee 👎🏼
