Average ice cream, but note if you only have cuc they will try and take you to the tourist area and make you pay about 30x the price of the locals and they give you worse ice-cream. If you want to line up for 1.5...More

Ice cream is lousy, selection poor, service indifferent, tourists are not valued. Find an alternative - they exist.

We stayed two blocks away at the Capri hotel, and walked up for ice cream to be met by an armed security guard who asked us whether we were paying CUP or CUC, as we only had CUC we were redirected to another entrance further...More

I really think the ice cream here doesn't worth over 40 minutes of waiting under hot sun. The ice cream is just normal and plain flavored. Does not worth to go there particularly as a foreigner. I don't really understand why this restaurant is so...More

I remember going back to the late 90s seeing people line up for ice-cream. By far the most popular govt run food service place. Recently supplanted in quality and choice by a few new private ice-cream parlours. If you want to try but not line...More

Amidst the hustle and bustle of midtown Vedado at the corner of 23 & L in front of the Habana Libre hotel, you find the big Coppelia park. This is the first icecream parlor I've been to that's in a UFO-shaped structure on park grounds....More

We had heard about this "amazing" ice cream parlour and had even eaten their ice cream (frozen pineapple) in another restaurant which tasted pretty good so we thought we'd give it ago. There is a Coppelita on El Malecon but it was either never opened...More
