“There's better”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014 via mobile

Of course Cows has all of your Ben and Jerry's esque sounding names and appeal but the service was nothing special and the ice cream was mediocre for the price. It cost 4.50 I think for a single scoop of relatively bland ice cream. If you go to an ice cream parlour in Spain it will cost about 3 Euros for a decent sized tub of ice cream but the flavour you get there is so much better. Sure if you want to go to some gimmicky ice cream parlour for some mediocre ice cream so be it. I would however suggest a clothing shop up the street who sold, in my opinion, much nicer ice cream. This could be because they sold more sorbet ice cream so the flavour was more concentrated than Cows which used a lot of milk by the sounds of it.

I would like to point out that I had a mocha based ice cream at both places and the chocolate and coffee flavours were much more distinctive in the other place up the street.

“A-MOO-zing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2014

Before you actually see the sign COWS you will smell the scent of waffle cones. That was enough to draw us in!

If you're going to be naughty, go all out and do it the right way. Get yourself a waffle cone and your favourite flavour ice cream and enjoy. I highly recommend the CHIP CHIP HOORAY which has chocolate chips and salted caramel in it. The "saltiness" is quite strong, but I love the sweet/salty flavour combination and if I was going to be naughty again, I'd choose the same flavour without hesitation.

My hubby had MOOEY GOOEY which he also loved.

The staff were friendly and they will let you try before you buy...although I'm sure it would be impossible to make a bad decision.

“Why can't all ice cream be like this?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2014

Simply excellent ice cream. I don't know what they do (or don't do) to it, but it is delicious. Went every day of our visit.

“Ice Cream saved the day!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2014

After a not so good "fun" time at a local kids attraction we had to save the day with something - and thank you COWS for being that thing. Friendly staff, fabulous ice-cream and the experience never lets us down. There is nothing better than an ice-cream to put you in a great mood and the choice of flavors is great. Thanks COWS!

“Family Favorite”

This little shop is on our must stop list in the village. Great ice cream in lots of flavors and the locals are always very friendly.
