Ummmm...how did I live so many years never tasting Portuguese custard pastry? I'll be honest, we came back a few times and it was out of the way. Pasteis de Belem is everything it's hyped up to be. Perfectly flavored baked custard and the flakey crust was to die for. With a cup of Portuguese coffee (which is another amazing thing!!!), we were in heaven!!!

Ditto regarding Joana's review and with a small cup of expresso. This place is popular and there is often a line out the door. However, there's a huge amount of indoor seating (especially in the back) and the table service is prompt and friendly.

Portugal is known for a variety of excellent pastries. Pasteis De Belem is known for these delicate little egg custard tarts...They are delicious and provide one of our happy culinary memories of Lisbon.

I guess I was spoiled by our local bakery in Baixa. The pastel was okay and the quiche and croissant were fine, but it was nothing special. Although it was extremely busy, our waiter was very nice and attentive. There is usually a huge line out the front for take-away, but we ate in the cafe section (which has several rooms that go back into the building so keep searching for a seat...you will find one!) and found this to be much more relaxed.

It is a must if you are in Lisbon. The place truly lives up to its fame. It still maintains the low key look from over a hundred year ago. The food is all very reasonably priced or even cheap. Pasteis de Belem are those delicious little phyllo cups with sweet and dense egg custard dusted with powered sugar and cinnamon. A few of those and a cup of coffee or tea make a perfect afternoon. There is always a long line outside, but don't let that deter you. Those are people waiting for the to-go. If you eat in, there are plenty of tables in the back of the store.
