Great icecream!

You must believe me! I am Sicilian and we (thanks to the Arabs) invented ice-cream. This is a very good place to taste local specialties such as the La Rosa (Rose water scented flavour). Unfortunately there is no terraza to sit and enjoy the icecream that will melt quickly in Santiago's hot summer... read more

Lucuma, chiromayo, miel dos ulmos, chocolate,...You'll have difficulties to choose which to eat and so more than one visit will be necessary. The lemon tart is also excellent and the fruit juices. Perhaps some more simple salad could be a good thing. Smiling service in this location.

The ice cream was good, but not outstanding. They do have many flavors. Tried the rose petal and the pineapple.

So glad my son brought us here for a delicious cold treat on a very hot Santiago summer day. Rich, creamy and so delicious! I can see why it's been name one of the top 25 ice cream shops in the world. It's well-deserved praise! Wish I could have packed some to take back home to Milwaukee. A must-have if... More

I admit it, I love ice cream, so we had to go here . It was a visual delight, so many flavors and colors, it was hard to chose . We did sample many and did select a large container with different flavors . All were very good. We are glad we came here.

We were brought here by a friend who is also a tour guide. This is a gem in the downtown center of Valpo. with a claim to be listed as one of the top 25 in the world. I do not know if this is true, but the ice cream was out standing, "muy rico" in local parlance. I would... More

This was perhaps the only place in Santiago that we had to queue and you can understand why. Not only do they serve the ice cream in perhaps the best way ever (in a cup with the cone on top so you get the best of both worlds), it also tasted delicious and (almost) rivalled the ice cream you can...

Our family tried the gelato here on the advice of several Chilenos who claimed it was the best in Santiago.It was right across the street from our hotel, the Singular, so we gave it a try. What made it special were the interesting flavors, tropical fruits that one does not get in the US. Strictly speaking, what they serve is... More
