This is not a cheap ice cream store and it looks very nice, I however took two flavours (vanilla and pistachio) I know not the most bursting with flavours but they were still bland beyond bland. To make matters worse the texture was not up...More

They know how to make ice cream. All flavours are exceptional and offered at the right temperature. Unfortunately you have to queue when outside temperature is high!

This was a good stop for ice cream. A 2-scoop serving (2 flavors) was 4.5 euros. That seemed reasonable to us since it's about what we'd pay for ice cream at Baskin Robbins at home. The ice cream was really good, but the flavors aren't...More

There's not a lot of fantastic ice cream places around Brussels, therefore Gaston has almost no competition for the title of best ice cream in the city. Expect a long queue in front of the shop during summer days and especially after work hours or...More

Ugly place, good service, expensive ice cream, ridiculous amount for the price. The zone is kind of creepy, junkies in the area.
