This was SOOOO cool. They dip the gelato with a paddle and make your cone into a rose. Not only was it cool but it was just the right stuff for a hot afternoon.

Had ice cream here. Waited on rather long lines. Large selection of flavors. Beautiful presentation of i-c, as carefully sculpted flowers. The i-c was okay, but certainly not excellent. We were disappointed after all the outstanding reviews listed here.

Beautiful ice creams! My second time visiting while in Budapest and it was even better than I remembered, a must visit if you are in the city. Such a wide range of ice cream flavours you will have a hard time trying to decide which...to have!More

If you ever decide to visit Budapest , it is worth it to taste an ice cream in a shape of a rose in the best gelateria in town. Believe me!

Flower ice cream! Watch them whip up a frozen rose petal by petal. Long lines usually move fast due to efficiency. And the gelato is actually good, especially the cinnamon and ginger flavors; a fun photo op. Across from the beautiful basilica.

The ice creams look beautiful, taste fabulous, are great value - and can be eaten with the magnificent backdrop of St Stephen's Basilica. If you do have to queue, it will be well worth the wait.

After a bit of a wait in line we were served by cheerful staff Very intense flavors Grouping compatible flavors works best and I recommend three rather than two So unique it requires a photo before enjoying it

I had seen this shop in a travel article so knew I had to go if I ever found myself in Budapest. Great location, very close to the bassicilca and via the Xmas market. The ice cream is really tasty and amazingly priced for the...quality. I had salted caramel and strawberry and elderflower. Highly recommended.More

We both wanted to try the famous white chocolate and lavender ice cream, which was beautiful - it’s sweet but has a lovely delicate lavender hint to it. My partner went for the salted butter caramel which was very decadent and I chose the basil...lemon which was so tasty that I’ve Googled recipes to recreate it - I’d try to make the white chocolate and lavender but don’t think I have much hope of getting it right.. Grab a cone and sit right outside the beautiful St Stephens Basilica (Szent István Bazilika). Well worth a visit!More

It is usually very crowded here from morning to noon and there is a long queue, but at night it is more secluded. They have a chili chocolate ice cream which has a strange taste and I suggest you try it! It is delicious!

I was there with my friends and we all really liked the gelato. They have so many flavors, my friends had mango and rasberry sorbet and I had white chocolate with lavender and salty butter caramel and everything was sooo delicious. Also place is so...nice, its like old fashioned and the staff was nice to us too. Such a nice place to visit.More
