Yummy sorbets!!!! Lots of choices, so I'm sure you will find one you like. They offer samples on little spoons to help with your decision. My son is on a study abroad program in Santiago and he was told that this place was the BEST!!!!! After many samples, I picked Mango.

Great ice cream, a lot of flavors and some are really special such as Rose, and some really Chilean fruits. In some Emporio stores they serve food, mainly Chilean traditional, but taste is normal, not the real thing. Stick to ice cream would be my recommendation and you won't be dissapointed.

Very good gelato, with the fruit based gelato having good fruit flavor. The Chocolate was of course excellent. I like my gelato in a cup with two flavors, usually a chocolate and a fruit flavor. But this time I went with Chocolate and a salty caramel (it was great too!)

Small store front, they have two main sections, the hard ice-cream bar section (like magnum) with all sorts of flavors and toppings, or the softer gelato-ish section with all sorts of flavors and toppings. Tip: You gotta pay first, get a receipt, then walk over to the ice-cream display case, hand it over to them, and ask to provar (test... More

You won't be dissapointed! It's a small ice cream shop (they have more branches around the town) with wide selection of flavors. My favorite is combination of maracuja and dulce de leche.

If you're wanting sorbet, this is a great place to go. The fruit flavors are wonderful! However, I think the texture is too icy for the other flavors.

This ice cream is truly the best I've ever had! It's more of a Gelato, but the flavors are unique and the texture is amazing! The place is super clean and the staff are always friendly and are easy to ask for samples. The price is a little more than usual but totally worth it. If I could eat it... More

This place advertises itself as having one of the top 25 ice creams in the world. I disagree. The ice cream is not quite like gelato and yet also not like ice cream. In addition, it's a little too icy. It's tasty but not the best. I had the platano (banana), which is one of their most popular flavors. Overall,... More

We were touring the neighborhood of Parque Forestal and it was getting quite cold. We looked for a warm place where we could have lunch. We saw Emporio La Rosa and thought it was just an ice cream and dessert place. We went inside for shelter and saw their menu which offered sandwiches, salads and the best find - hearty,... More
