There are several branches of this gelateria in the downtown area. We visited the one near the Royal Plaza last night, and the selection and taste were excellent. The chocolate was intensely chocolate. All of the flavors on offer looked good. Given the quality, the prices seemed reasonable. We did see several people who looked like they wished that they...

My all year-round favorite place for ice creams in Barcelona! Artisan made, Italian origin, delicious flavours, wonderful display, carefully served and nicely priced!

I'm a fan of this place. Its an icon for Barcelona. Specially the one situated at Portal del Angel (near Plaza Catalunya). They have great ice cream and the widest selection of gofres (waffles) to match. Very crowded on weekends but very nice staff.

We thought that this was the best ice cream we had during our stay in Barcelona. It was recommended by a restaurant down the street, and didn't disappoint.

I had sought out the top ranked place on TA at around 10:30pm or so and found they didn´t even have any ice cream left. Tried flavors at a number of other places and found that this store had absolutely DELICIOUS and real, creamy gelato. The brownie is to die for. Coconut and mango also great, and many other choices... More

We visited this ice cream parlour everyday during our stay in Barcelona, the staff are quick to serve you and friendly. The ice cream is amazing, the flavours taste exactly as they are labelled! I would recommend the Nutella and kinder ice cream, it's amazing!

I absolutely adore the Ferrero rocher ice cream flavor at this place.. Soo good that I had it in a coffee frappe, a crepe and in a cone.. Heavenly! What a wonderful little place. Head here if you're an ice cream lover.. But then again, who isn't?? :))
