Delicious! Loved the natas and cram cake we had the first day we stayed in Lisbon - definitely set the bar very high for the rest of the trip.

Winner of Portugal’s “National Tasting of Pastel de Nata” in in 2012, 2013 and 2015 Pastelaria Aloma has certainly made the most of its accolades, a half-dozen shops now spanning from the original to city center with additional stops at the airport and commercial centers....Named after the film “Aloma of the South Seas,” and utilizing the recipes of Jerónimos’ Monastery in Belém to fabricate several Pastries built upon Egg Custard, it is from tables that guests are invited to watch Nata in the making, the varying degrees of charring suggesting an imprecise process that nonetheless yields a jiggly center and dough that shatters briskly. Born in 1943, “Fabrico Próprio” signage on display, additional tastes included a Mil Folhas that unfortunately came up fairly flaccid while the Palmier stacked around Custard labeled as “Palmier Recheado” is a crackling work of art.More

A perfect local place that deserves its accolades for their pastel de nata. Flaky, delicious and always fresh - they cannot be beat.

We stayed around the corner and frequented this pastry shop. I tried quite a few pastel de natas and this was my favourite! I also liked their bacalhau croquettes. Staff were friendly and prices are very reasonable! Very local place and appreciated it more after...a bad experience at Confeitaria Nacional.More

The good taste and look of Aloma Pasteis de Nata is amazing. They are the best Pasteis de Nata I have ever tasted. I recommend. Pastelaria Aloma is open since 1943.

OK, so I haven't had EVERY nata in Lisbon, but I ate A LOT and these were my favorites. They are so creamy. We didn't try any of the other pastries, but they looked delicious.

When I first had them at Lisboa Patisserie on the Golborne road in London I was not impressed, nor was I that impressed by the very famous Belem version... when introduced to the Aloma version I was most impressed, crunchy crispy with great eggy goo,...these things need loads of cinnamon on top, it’s Aloma for me every time now.More

Latte and Americano were good, my chocolate croissant was okay, but the almond croissant was doughy inside. Service was fast and friendly.

Portuguese bakery with authentic Portuguese products. Pasteis de nata were really good and the croissants with ham were with that delicious brioche bread. Prices are ok and the staff was friendly and fast.

My father is Portuguese and Pastéis de Nata have no secrets for me anymore. How disappointing - and shocking - to find out that, despite all the Awards that those Pastéis received, the recipe is not at all the original one. Palm oil, totally hydrogenated...palm oil, partial hydrogenated palm oil, preservatives, etc. The list goes on and on. Are you kidding me??!!! You just can’t pretend to be one of the best pastries in Lisbon and make Pastéis as bad for our health AND for our planet (palm oil, really?). This is just unacceptable. As long as they will not change this recipe, we will never buy anything at ALOMA ever again.More

This is one of the places to visit for the famous pastel de nata as it is made on the premises and came second in the annual competition. Coffee is good!

This was the place I first tasted the famous Portuguese "pastel de nata". A pastry made with a crunchy shell and filled with cream, amazingly delicious. The last stop of our first food tour throughout Lisbon. Great way to close our first gastronomic experience.

We stumbled across this as we were walking around looking for a place to relax and have coffee and cakes while it’s so hot outside. We were not disappointed. Fast and friendly service and delicious cakes!
