“Good gelato - for Morocco!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2012

Good selection of gelato, about 12 every day.
Prices reasonable - in Sept 2012 18 Dr. for 3 scoops.
This is decent gelato, and for gelato in Morocco it is very good, but don't expect it to be great gelato by the standards you may be used to.
This is clearly factory made stuff, and some of the "flavours" are just plain gelato with squiggles of sauce over the top, or bits of candy bars mixed in.
Still, in Morocco....when you just NEED gelato.....it's not bad!

“Lush!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2012

True Italian ice cream with all its great flavours in the middle of the medina of the most laid back place in Morocco, for mere 12dh a cup - heaven!

“High-standards Italian ice cream”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012 via mobile

I tasted ice cream in this place several times. If you like ice cream, prepared with the standards of an Italian artisanal place, then this is the place to go. Good value for money.

“Great icecream, great price, nice people”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2012

The best ice cream we have found in Essaouira - wide range of flavours from basic lemon icecream to creme caramel icecream. Melon was my favourite. Nice pies and great coffee. Speak good english. Been every day for the last three days! 12dhs for two scoops in a cup or cone and 18dhs for three scoops in a cup.

“A habit you can't wait to start...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2012

We hit this little spot up at least once, sometimes twice, a day during our stay in Essaouira. We sampled many delicious flavors of gelato, had some mint tea, and even drank a few espressos. All really good, and the staff are nice and cheerful.
