Refreshing stop

My husband and I enjoyed the special of the week shake de gelato de moto. I had mine con Agua and he had con leche. Both were delicious and the chilled drink was just what we needed after walking in the park where Feria de Clime celebration was being held.

Friendly staff, but limited menu when we were there...many items on the menu were not available. Food we had was good, prices were reasonable. Mid-afternoon was quite warm, morning would be more enjoyable, as restaurant is located directly across the park, and traffic noise and heat can be a bit overwhelming.

We had been in Atennas for 3 weeks before we tried Gelly's, but we had heard of it. Our first experience was decent food, but the highlight was Alex, owner, waiter, everyman, coming over to our table of 6 and performing some card tricks that were unsolvable by us. We made a reservation to return the following Friday for a... More

Great coffee and cappuccino's, good snacks. The place overlooks the central park in the town so it has a nice view of all the people going by. I come here about once a month and would recommend to others.

Quite literally. Ask the owner, Alex, to show you a magic trick! The food is fine and the view is great. A friendly lunch place! We particularly like the veggie crepe and the Mexican salad. Try the guanabana juice too. Don't expect this to be haute cuisine but do expect good food from a nice place.

We came for the delicious ice cream and were not disappointed. Many flavors and the four of us enjoyed all of them. Sitting across from the beautiful park with a cool breeze blowing and great ice cream.....contentment. ,

I wasn't expecting to eat a crepe, but their chicken crepe with side salad was a perfect lunch even before I added the lemon pie and coffee! And I like the view of Atenas Central Park almost as much! Another great place to eat on the central plaza in Atenas.

The food was really very good and priced right. But try not to have to use the washroom unless you really need to. It is just a bit of an adventure.

Gelly's was a regular stop for our family while staying in Atenas. It's located right in the town's center and overlooks the park. We grabbed ice cream and then sat in the balcony seating to watch all the hustle and bustle of the town center. The people working there are extremely nice and the bathroom is in great shape.
