In Brief
It’s a wonder that this place doesn’t disappoint despite the massive crowds. The store itself is beautifully elegant and worth dining in. The pasteis are heavenly, with a slightly thicker crusts from its contemporaries and a sweeter custard. The mix is definitely a unique combination. Expect to wait around 20 minutes for a table on weekends. 2 Pasteis and an espresso only set you back 3€. Staff are friendly enough but they rush to serve everyone so don’t expect a lot of personalized care.

The best pastel de Nata in Portugal! Amazing place for an amazing price. You don't have to stand in a queue outside like a mindless sheep. You can sit inside as there are easily over 200 sitting places. Service is great! Efficient, smart, quick and kind enough. The food is delicious beyond understanding. The cafe dates back to early 1800 so it's quite a piece of history too. To be in Lisbon and not visit this place is a sin :)

If you arrive here when a tour is here or a cruise ship is in Dock in Lisbon its crazy 🤪 busy. If your Lucky you can find a seat.. The place is like a maze so don't be afraid to walk through the narrow corridors to different rooms where more seats are. You have to get the Portuguese custard tarts. If you don't then why are you even here? I had 4 they were amazing! Best I've ever had. Definitely worth the trip and fighting your way in!

The first thing you will see of this place right when you arrive in front of is a crowd and a big line coming out of the building. But there are more than a thousand reasons why to get that line and wait. The first one is that the staff is pretty fast, educated and helpful to get your order and bring it. The second is that this building has around 400 seats available to receive clients, so you can decide to get some delicacies to-go or eat it right inside. The third reason (and probably the most important of all) is that you will not forget how delicious and how tasteful its delicacies are, since the sweets until the sandwiches and salty products. Obviously, the “Pastel de Belém” is extremely delicious and has a crunchy butter pastry (somewhat hard to find in other places) and comes to you table very hot, what makes the great difference. It is a delicacy so good that you will want to take more back home or back to your hotel. A good tip (if I may) is to taste it with cinnamon or sugar on the top.

Incredible custard tarts are worth the trip. We went on a weekday in January and had no wait time at all. I have heard the lines in high-season can be quite long. The tarts were still warm and we ate them standing right on the sidewalk. A must-see spot on your trip to Lisbon!
