I can thoroughly recommend the cherry ice cream and because I was felling all indecisive the lovely man serving offered me a spoonful as a taster - done deal! Spoilt for choice as there were over a dozen flavours to choose from and all looked delicious. Just right right for a break from the hot sun.

Mijas is without doubt one of the "must see" places in Spain. Unspoilt narrow white village streets with local craft shops abound, and in the square, Tartuufo La Gelateria. Sit out in the sun and watch the horse drawn carriages go by whilst enjoying the most amazing ice cream. Great selection of flavours, some quite unusual - worth the visit... More

Mijas really needed a good ice cream parlour there were pale imitations, but now there a re a couple. Our favourite one is Tartufo The staff are really great and informative and the ice cream is just superb. the best we have had since visiting Italy. Give it a go, you wont be disappointed.

Had icecream from here every night on our holiday last year and looking forward to repeating the experience this year in August. One suggestion Mango icecream is gorgeous and you didn't have this last year

We stayed in Mijas for 2 weeks, and probably visited this wonderful little shop 10 times!! The choices were amazing, reasonably priced and always served by excellent staff. Both the hazlenut icecream and all the sorbets were delicious. Having myself made ice cream commercially I can only compliment this establishment on an excellent product.The only downside, if you could call... More

Great stopping-off point (after lunch/dinner) for an ice cream/sorbet at VERY reasonable prices. Staff in this ultra-clean little shop are friendly and efficient. A little treasure to seek-out, whilst visiting Mijas Pueblo - enjoy!!
