Not as gimmicky as the rose-art makes it look. The ice-cream itself is top quality, absolutely gorgeous and not too expensive at all. Highly recommend the lemon-basil sorbet, utterly out of this world.

This is a famous ice-cream shop and always with a waiting line in busy hours of the evening. So we wanted to taste and taste the difference 🤔 I think too much sweeteners and sugar as after you finish your ice-cream, the sweeteners taste stats...in your mouth. You certainly should try when you are by the Bazilika, but don’t expect a high taste.More

My wife and I visited Gelarto Rosa on the advice of a friend and we loved it so much I think we stopped in on all five days we were in Budapest. First, they carve your ice cream into a rose shape. But that's not...the best part. The gelato is delicious with flavors (and flavor combinations) that I've never heard of. My favorite: pear. It really tasted like pear! Others we had: Lavender with white chocolate, mango, basil-lemon, hazelnut. There's a board outside of available flavors that changes daily. All of them are good though.More

The icream was great with a big range of flavours! Also, a pretty idea to make the icream into a rose(very eye catching)!

Why go elsewhere for an ice cream? The shop not only provides fantastic rose shaped ice creams but fab flavours too!! Yes they’re very instagrammable. 3 flavours (which is the hardest part to decide on!!) medium size will set you back 1000 HUF which is...about £2.60 So worth it!! Such a skill. Beautiful views of the basilica opposite.More

Tasty treat with added novelty. Note- They say they've lactose-free icecream but they just have fruit sorbet. Extremely tasty sorbet but not icecream

Gelarto Rosa turn serving ice cream into an art form! Interesting flavours like baked apple and caramel feature alongside other high quality ices. Watching your assistant shape your ice cream into the petals of a rose makes for an interesting wait. Flavours are delightful and...leave you wanting to try more flavours. If you like ice cream then you must visit here.More

Wow! Not just an ice cream but a real work of art. I found it hard to pick two flavours and a third would have just been greedy. I opted for the caramelised Bradley apple and pistachio which was a great combination. The ice cream...was constructed into the shape of a rose placed in a cornet. Good value for money; great range of flavours; warm friendly staff.More

Lovely little shop right next to St Stephen's Basillica in Budapest. Vegan options, good value for location/ quirkiness. Tasty ice cream too. Only quarm is that they could benefit from offering slightly higher class cones (the basic ones are fine, but considering the cafe is...kind of all about the image some fancier ones would be nice too)More
