“Yummmmm!!!”
Reviewed March 23, 2014

Delicious ice cream at the heart of Rotterdam. The scoop is not veeeeery generous, but the taste is just great! I had the mango sorbet and it was delicious! My husband had the chocolate and the caramel, and they were also great. Not much variety in flavours, but that is compensated by the intensity of the flavours!

“THE place to go for icecream !”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

Ample choice of artisanal ice cream flavors (all made on premise & containing natural ingredients). Don't be alarmed about the long line of waiting customers: service is very quick and efficient. And believe me, it's definitely worth the wait...

“Agree, best place to get ice in Rotterdam”
Reviewed March 8, 2014

Can only confirm what is said before, this place has the best ice cream of Rotterdam. Dunno about the other stuff they sell, but the ice is outstanding. There are a lot of different flavours to choose from. A range from the "normal" lemon, strawberry, vanilla, chocolate to the more "exotic" bastogne, stroopwafel and so on. All have a strong flavour and taste really like the food it made off.

“Amazing ice cream, really cool place”
Reviewed September 22, 2013 via mobile

The ice cream is second to none in Rotterdam. You should definitely try the stroopwafel flavoured ice cream if you are looking for a new taste!

“I scream! icecream”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

The only place that can rival this one, is in my opinion the pizzeria Angelot Betti. But the ijssalon has more flavours to choose from and is more centrally located.
