Tasted like normal ice cream to me - nothing very special. Having said this, in the late afternoon heat it does help to recover having walked from the centre.

Helados San Nicolas makes the perfect ice cream for a hot afternoon, evening or anytime really in El Albaicin... After climbing the many steps up to San Nicolas, the refreshing mango, berries or even orange sorbet varieties absolutely hit the mark. The creamier flavours are fantastic too - honey blossom and date ice cream was a subtle surprise. Stop by and have a chat with these friendly Frenchmen!

The ice cream here was enjoyable, roughly on par with some of the other ice cream stores in Granada. However, it did seem extremely refreshing and much needed/deserved, making it taste even better after the steep trek to San Nicholas from the town centre.

I would recommend going if your nearby, but probably not worth the trip just to go to this ice cream store.

We took a short cab ride after touring the Alhambra to the San Nicolas ice-cream shop run by two Frenchman and what a welcome delight it was. The flavours we preferred were date and honey - scrumptious, followed by Andulsian strawberry ice-cream - To Die For! And all served by the charming owners who make all the ice-cream themselves on the premises. The pure and elegant flavors I found at San Nicolas compare more than favorably with the best sicilian gelato, Grom and Bertillion. Moreover, the place was impeccably cool and clean.
