“Tasty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

Don't miss the calafate flavor icecream, it is very good, and not a lot of places have it. Good chocolates as well. Not expensive.

“Delicious ice cream”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

Really tasty ice cream, tons of flavors, highly recommended! Prices were on par with Buenos Aires, but far more expensive than ice cream prices I encountered in Chile. Everyone raves about ice cream in Argentina, but personally enjoyed the flavors and creaminess of the ice cream in Chile more.

Be sure to go to the cash register and make your purchase first. There you will get a number that will get called when it's your turn to pick flavors!

“Great chocolate ice cream”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

As an ice cream expert I highly reccomend the Chocolate Super Delicioso. Can't miss! The Menta Granizada is excellent as well.

“Best chocolate!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

Follow the signs to the factory, a few blocks off Libertador, and sit outside or in and have coffee and helado, and then dive into the chocolate and bring home as much as you can carry. It is excellent, fresh and real chocolate, dark, milk, or white; filled (try the one with the calafate berry) or plain; nice boxes, very helpful staff, and great for gifts when you get home -- if you don't eat it yourself.

“Tasty unusual chocolates”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2012

Their chocolates are most unconventional - filled with raspberry, lemon curd, mashed raisins - very tasty.
They also sell an ice cream - which I didn't have a chance to sample, but a constant queue of 20-40 people should be enough to convince you that the ice cream is good.

The address here is wrong, though, - they are now located at Avenida Libertador, the main street of El Calafate. And their cuisine is obviously not British.
