I have been several times in this place with friends and family. Overall, it has been a pleasant experience; nonetheless, the service can be kind of rude. You can find a great variety of flavors (specially the native flavors of tropical fruits). The ice cream has a good texture and you can appreciate the natural ingredients of the gelato. The... More

It is a local version of Italian gelatos some of them made of local fruits producing great flavors. A very nice experience. I like a lot the one made of Corozo. My recommendation, go for the local fruits flavors to enjoy a different experience.

It is an small place but the ice cream is the best! They have flavors like nutella and mint chicolate chip. Everyone's favorites. They taste amazing. Prices are good, considering you are in an expensive city and comparing it to other ice cream shops. Look for a map and try to find it, you won't regreat it.

The Venezuelan owner Maria has created quite a stir when this ice parlour opened several years ago. Pretty decor in Parisian style, a huge selection of amazing flavours, all with the best possible ingredients. Difficult to recommend the best, but you can find many of 250 types of Colombian fruits turned into delicious ice cream, occasionally even kopoasu form the... More

The icecream in this place is AMAZING! Went there first time with some friends as we stumbled upon it, and now I stop by every now and then whenever I feel like I want some icecream... Friendly staff and a nice place as well to escape the heat outside!😊

We had very nice ice creams. But we have to be honest, we didn’t try other places in Cartagena. It’s obviously not cheap. But you can go and you will not be disappointed.

We went because I have told that Obama was there when he visited the city. So, we decided to try the same ice cream. We tasted the chocolate one, of course, and it was delicious. But in my opinion, the best one was the hibiscus ice cream. The only negative evaluation goes the service. Bad humor does not match ice... More

This is a medium sized, cozy shop with at least two dozen flavors of gelato ranging from fruit to chocolate and other rich tastes. The salted caramel is amazing, especially with dark chocolate. Don't hesitate to ask for a sample if there's a flavor you're unfamiliar with.

I think the decor was trying to be shabby chic, but it was more like shabby. The furniture did not encourage you to linger, but the ice creams were excellent and the staff very friendly. Definitely worth dropping in.
