Granclement is owned by a French couple residing in Panama City, which makes sense since it reminded me of the delectable Parisian ice cream shop Berthillon. During my trip with friends to Panama, we had 2 days in Panama City at the beginning of our trip and another 2 days at the end. We went to Granclement every day we... More

The ice cream we have had in most places here in Panama is filled with lots of air and tastes more like cool whip! This ice cream and sorbet is the real deal. Great selection of flavors - love the basil, ginger, mango/quava - only a couple of tables but if you can score one, you get a nice air... More

We stopped by while out shopping and sampled some of their flavors. Their chocolate I cream was so smooth and richly chocolatey...I do think it surpasses the high end commercial ice creams found in the US. All fresh ingredients, made locally...who could ask for more!

Tried the green tree ice cream and it was jasmine flavour but the texture was gritty like chewing caster sugar. the jasmine flavour was subtle and then a condensed milk flavour took over. Basil flavour was nice as it tastes like pesto.

After walking around Casco Viejo, there is nothing like some ice cream from GranClement. Apart from the traditional flavors, there are a few exotic flavors that are truly worth sampling. There are no over-the-top sundaes or fancy desserts, just delicious ice cream cones. It is important to note that the shop is cash-only.

Granclement is a cute little place in Casco Viejo, Panama. It is a great stop to have ice creams. Besides the traditional flavors, you can find exotic ones like ginger or basil. They are absolutely delicious. It does not have too much space for seating.

In the heart of Casco Viejo is a true gem! Fantastic ice cream and sorbets of really unusual flavors like basil and lavender. A nice refreshment on a hot day, don't miss it!

The ice cream here is some of the best of I've had by far (trust me, I've sampled a lot of ice cream in my life). It's creamy and flavorful and has the right amount of exotic flavors ice cream connoisseurs like me look for. I recommend lavender, pain d'epices, basil, green tea flavors. One thing it could do without... More

Loads of different flavors and a cool pleasant place to take a break. They put a lot of care in preparing the icecream and maintaining high quality. It's the best of France just a block from the Panama harbour. Expensive though. Ask to taste a few before you decide....yumy
