From the traditional paste de Belém to the tostas made with ham and cheese, this place is outstanding! Service is friendly and efficient, the lines move fast, and the inside sitting area is charming and welcoming. Make sure you do not order from the take away area. Walk inside, and find the table service patio. This visit is an absolute... More

This place claims to have its own secret family recipe for its Pasties since 1837...and it's so worth it! There's a long queue for ordering your pasties but it's worth your patience! The handmade pasties, using the ancient recipe are mouth watering. Sample them freshly baked from the oven with a drizzle of sugar and you're in heaven! A must... More

Not so good. Riding on their century-old fame. Their pastéis are filled with custard cream, are served too hot - the cream melts, and they use hydrogenated fat that sticks to the top of your mouth.

This is located in Belem and is the original and best, however you cannot go wrong with them anywhere. But this is a fantastic cafe, original and fun. Staff a fast and friendly and the Pasteis are truly stunning in every way. If you go to the monastery and Toren bu Belem, you must also go here to really enhance... More

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.
