“Unique take on ice cream”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

My friend had passed this little ice cream shop on a previous trip to Barcelona and vowed she would be back. So, when we met in Barcelona for a girls vacation that was one of our stops. It was such a cute little place. Totally fun concept, simple setup, great graphic appeal (I'm a designer so these things appeal to me!), and a super creative take on traditional ice cream. We were the only ones there at the time so we got to talk with the owner who was very friendly. Once my friend made her "eyescream" decision we ventured out to a bench to partake. The final product had definite eye appeal but I wouldn't say the ice cream was anything special. It's more about the experience.

“Coolest ice cream I've ever seen but not good to eat”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

A very nice thing to look at and experience: the packaging is cool, the idea is cool, the toppings are good but the ice cream is just plain horrible. Wrong texture, no flavour whatsoever, and not cheap either (4.30€) A pity!

“A Unique Experience That Shouldn't Be Missed”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

If you are in Barcelona (and in Barceloneta more specifically) a stop by Eyescream is a must! It was the unique look of the shop that first caught our attention, with their wooden crates topped with a variety of mix-ins. The co-owner, who was manning the shop the evening that we visited, explained what Eyescream was all about. After hearing the concept, we had to have a taste.

There were 6-8 flavors available the night we visited, and we went with the lemon. The owner suggested that we top our shaved ice cream with condensed milk and shortbread cookies, two of the mix-ins that were available. The combination created the flavors of a lemon cream pie with a graham cracker crust! Of course, our dessert was topped with two candy eyes!

This is a great concept shop that offers customers a unique twist on the traditional gelato or ice cream that lines the streets of Barcelona.

“Super original and different experience of eating "eyescream"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

We ate an ice cream here, not only they look very cool, they are big and you get to choose a couple of toppings already included in the price. Lots of combinations possible. Its really nice to experience something different and original. The staff was also super nice!
