This place has both the best ice cream and the best service. You can go to the original location on Basillo Badillo or the one in Fluvial and you get the same great ice cream. They even have a new one on the Malecon. Try...birthday cake flavor really good. Highly recommended.More

What a great surprise to discover luxury ice cream in Puerto Vallarta, served by very kind staff. The pistachio is really amazing and does taste like pistachios and does not look like fluorescent green as it is often the case in ice cream stores. The...chocolate is delicious, so is the Lavander ice cream, I love the shop, it reminds me of these amazing gelato from Milano in Italy and the ice cream I buy in Le Touquet Paris Plage in France, or even in Paris at Bertillon. I cannot believe anybody would criticize that place for its price of for anything, similar ice cream in Europe would cost double the price. I doubt you can find that kind of ice cream in Canada and if you do, please show me the shop. The portions are generous, but most importantly, the quality is incredible. If you like ice cream : Lix is your home. I love it, it might be one of the reason I love PV.More

Thank you so much for the review. It’s always great to hear from someone who really knows quality and the value we provide. Making high end artisan ice cream is not cheap but we do provide and great product that is fairly priced. We love...More

This is by far the best ice cream in Puerto Vallarta. It is right near the beach in the Romantic Zone. Make sure you find your way here. You will not be disappointed. Highly recommended.

A friend of mine recommended Lix, boy am I glad she did. Delivery to Bucerias, 3 pints: Vanilla, Cookies and Cream and Mocha Almond Fudge. Good ice cream is difficult to find here in the PV area, so happy to find Lix🥰

Went here twice for fabulous creamy ice cream. Can be crowded because of its popularity but well worth the wait.

My husband and I were walking around the currently deserted Romantic Zone and were hoping to get an ice cream cone. We passed by Lix and not surprisingly they were closed. We walked around a little more then circled back. The owners were unlocking the...door. I asked if they were opening and they said "no, hopefully tomorrow. But we can get you a scoop if you'd like" . We said "YES PLEASE!" We each got a mint chocolate chip cone and it was delicious! Thanks so much to both of you. It really was a bright spot in a time when all you hear think and speak about is Covid19. We went back 2 days later and tried some other flavours...sooo good! Probably going to head down again today. :)More

We are currently in PV and want to share one of our favorite places for the best ice cream- Lix! Last summer we visited Italy and tried pistachio gelato all through Florence and Rome. Lix’s pistachio ice cream by far surpasses any I had in...Italy! Don’t expect bright green color because that indicates chemicals were added to your ice cream! Lix’s pistachio is a pale green but it’s packed with nuts and sweet deliciousness. It’s the ice cream of your dreams. We also tried chocolate peanut butter, birthday cake, ginger and a banana based ice cream called Vallarta Chunk. Lix recently opened a second location close to Costco, so after shopping it’s close by.More
