“What a disappointment”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

Having been to Mado several times in the past, I was happy to bring a group of visitors to sample their lovely ice cream, ah sadly it was not to be. We all decided on the Ice Cream My Way which is a four scoop bowl and you choose from the list provided...when the waiter arrived he was very distracted and had not much of a clue as to what was and was not in stock, its fair to say that close to half the ice cream listed was not available, yes it was late evening, BUT this is mainly an ice cream shop????? And event given the poor selection they still managed to get one of our orders wrong, perhaps if the waiter was actually listening to us and has some idea of what was available instead of having to shout to other staff members he might have been able to have a stab at doing his job correctly, at then end of the day its down to pathetic management and poor staff training, I will not bother going back again as you can get equally good ice cream elsewhere at half the cost.

“Delicious icecream and cakes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

Walking down the shoppingstreets in Bodrum I would never have guessed that what looked like a tiny shop selling icecream was a fact a very good sweets restaurant.
Entering the restaurant we passed displays full of cakes and baklava. Out the back there was a lovely large terrace by the water. We sat under the canopy and enjoyed the cool seabreeze and view of the castle and boats.
The menu wasn't a simple card - it was a full colour hardback book!
I had a tiramisu inspired cake - chocolate cake drenched in coffee flavoured syrup, with layers of cream inbetween. BF had some very good pistachio baklava with Kesme icecream, which was slices of a delicious, silky textured icecream that you eat with a knife and fork! That icecream alone makes a visit worthwhile!
Prices: 9,50 TL for a very large piece of cake or baklava, 2,50 TL per scoop or slice of icecream.
Service was very good - friendly and without any hassle.
Definitely worth it. I can't wait to go back!
