Reviewed January 23, 2013

Nice ice cream shop in Casco Veijo. Great selection of flavors but expensive esp. by Panama standards.

“Yeah, it's good!”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

Okay, this not the best "restaurant" in Panama City, nor is it the best ice cream I've ever had. But I tell you this - when it's 90 degrees, Granclement is a must-vist. The ice cream is really good, all freshly made with a variety of flavors, almost all with a local feel. The space is a bit small and has little seating, so it gets crowded, but definitely a place to stop while strolling through the Casco.

“It's only better in Paris....”
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”
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”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

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
