Best icecream I tasted in Rotterdam, possibly even the Netherlands. Really great selection of flavours freshly made on site. Really lovely on a nice day. Only regret is not going back more!

Various times named best ice cream parkour in the country, the Ijssalon is sure a place to visit if you love ice cream. Where else will you find all ice flavors made with exact the ingredients it is named after? For instance, strawberry has real strawberries, mango has real mango and Apple pie has real apple pie in it. Considering... More

This salon has a reputation for the quality of the ice cream. And I must say, it lives up to that reputation. Besides the well-known flavours like strawberry, chocolate and vanilla, you might encounter more exotic tastings like mint, various type of cookies and other uncommon fruity flavours. Trying them all would freeze you out, so you might need to... More

You can't miss this ice cream parlor in the centre of Rotterdam. They got a lot of flavors to choose about and even some very strange kinds. They all taste delicious, but the scoops are very small. Another problem is that there can be a long line of people waiting for there ice cream. When this happens the staff can... More

Famous for their icecream flavours in Rotterdam. Everything they have is good. Do also try their Giraffe coffee. It's great.

The ice cream was not expensive..just 1.20 euro for waffle cone and one scoop. Perfect after dinner treat. A must experience!

Really incredible ice cream, definitely made with natural ingredients. Had the pistachio, did not taste synthetic in the slightest. Long queues that stretch outside the shop are a testament to how popular and how good the ice cream is. Would definitely recommend this to any of you sweet-toothed people out there, the scoops aren't the largest, but they definitely do... More
