“Great ice cream and service, best place for chilling out in afternoon”
Reviewed September 20, 2012 via mobile

After melting in the hot sun on the beach, this place was a daily chill out for coffee and ice cream

Sorry Spain but Italy really do have better coffee and ice cream, this place certainly delivers that quality, and price is low too

A variety of about 20 ice creams and new flavours offered each day. My favourite was a double bowl: strawberry and dark chocolate

Good pit stop before moving to Old Town for some afternoon tapas. Do it!

“Ice Cream but nothing special”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

Having read the reviews of this ice cream parlour, I was expecting the best ice creams in Spain. Unfortunately myself and family found this rather disappointing. The choice was ok but we have had better tasting ice cream at other cafes whilst in the Marbella area.

The service was good and the place very clean.

Firstly, we'd like to thank you for your opinion, it really matters to us to know what our customers think.
We are sorry you found that our ice-cream is disappointing, and we would like to invite you to come back to give us more details on what didn't suit your expectations, as well as to have a chance to get to know how our ice-cream are made.
We use only natural ingredients seeking only the best quality , we refrain from the prefab flavour that can be tasted nearly everywhere, we look into producing a low fat/low calories ice-cream daily, with lots of dedication and work.
Our ice-cream might not be the best, but it certainly is unique, healthy and natural.

Perhaps you could visit our production lab to see exactly what we mean.

With kind regards,

Frescapassione staff

“The best italian ice cream in Marbella”
Reviewed August 18, 2012

I thought to be in Italy!!!!!!!!! Instead I was in Marbella in Fresca Passione. The ice cream is the best, the taste of fresh ingredients, I had hazelnut, chocolate and dark chocolate, FANTASTIC. I will tell all my friends to go in Fresca Passione to have a nice Italian ice cream.

“Went back for seconds (and thirds)”
Reviewed April 12, 2012

What fantastic ice cream! We've been trying a couple of different places but since trying Fresca we only go back there. My child insists on it.

We've tried the fruit (mango and strawberry) as well as the chocolate (dark, kinder and ferrero roche) and nuts (pistachio) and each one was great. Unlike other places, you can taste pieces of ferrero roche in every bite.
