Modern decor inside and very nice eating area outside. Good selection of sorbets and ice creams at reasonable prices and those that I tasted during three visits were all good. Would recommend a visit but use waitress service. On one occasion I went inside, one person on cashdesk and four serving product. I approached one of the servers, none were occupied and there was a queue of four people waiting at the cash register, to be advised that I had to first pay at the cash register and then bring the ticket to a server to be served!! Typically Cuban and obvious where the flaws in this one are. Still, an enjoyable experience and great ices.

The El Gelato was on our walk. The beauty of the cakes in the window drew us in. The customer service was wonderful. They treated me to 5 samples so I finally decided on 2 of these flavors. The presentation of the gelato was so different it amazed us.
Tasted wonderful and a great treat on a warm day in Cuba.

As an ice cream junkie this place was an amazing addiction. Maybe 30 flavours and an endless choice of serving style and size. Pricing on the high but manageable side.

Great little place off the beaches of Mirimar Havana. Wonderful location setting inside as well as outside! Authentic Gelato just like the Gelato stands in Roma Italy! A little on the expensive side but well worth it. The mango Gelato was my favourite !
