“It's only better in Paris....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2013

Wife and I stopped here on a recommendation from a local, and the local was right.

It's excellent!

A small, quaint shop located in one of the narrow little streets of Casco Viejo. A very short stroll to the waterfront where you enjoy the view while enjoying you flavor.

Sadly the surrounding area is still far from "brought back" to a nice stage. Directly across the street is what can only be a called a slum apartment. But that's just the nature of what's going on in Panama, and shouldn't reflect on how enjoyable this little shop is.


The only thing better would be in Paris savoring some ice cream from Berthillon on the ile.

“A sweet experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013 via mobile

The young Parisienne couple who created this ice cream parlor checked off all the boxes. An incredible product in a darling refurbished space in Casco Viejo. Try the basil and dulce de leche super creamy ice cream and maracuya aka passion fruit sorbet. The home made flavorful and crispy cones are also a treat. A must eat treat when visiting Panama.

“yummy”

First, taste a few, then decide. The basil ice cream was my favorite. Great place to take a break from the heat in the old city

“Might be the best ice cream I've ever had”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2012

I've had some excellent ice cream and I'm a giant snob for it - this stuff is amazing. The texture is rich and creamy, and even the temperature is perfect (not too cold so it doesn't lose it's consistency and doesn't freeze your teeth). There are tons of flavor options and they truly nail each flavor. You must go to this place if you're in Casco Viejo...

“Best ice cream ever.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2012

Who would have thought that I would find the best ice cream I've ever had in Panama City? This places offers unique tropical flavors as well as traditional ones. My favorites include: coconut and dulce de leche. The thing that makes this ice cream over the top delicious is the temperature they serve it at. It is not too cold. It is as close to the melting point that it can be in order for them to still be able to serve it in a homemade cone. Perfect after a day spent exploring the humid streets of Casco Viejo.
