Reviewed January 9, 2014 via mobile

Pretty traditional ice cream. It is located in a pretty beautiful area, with great views. Try the fruit options, they are the best of the house (specially green coconut).

“Beware milkshake”
Reviewed December 27, 2013 via mobile

They have a great variety of fruits. Beware of the milkshakes, they are tasty but made with tap water (a.k.a not filtered) and that can make you really sick since the tap water is not clean. The employees could try to be a little bit more friendly, a smile goes a long way.

Reviewed September 24, 2013

The best Ice cream I have ever had! Big choices and never leave Salvador without trying this place. Normal price for ice cream in Europe, you will not see many locals here though

“Go after Bonfim Church, Fort Monserrat - Excelent taste”
Reviewed May 11, 2013

A bit far from the historical center of Salvador but, if you are visiting this beautiful city in your first time, you can not miss visiting the church of Nosso Senhor do Bonfim, which is next door. Next go to the fort of Our Lady of Mont Serrat and then visit the Riberia´s Beach, and finally deguste their ice cream. The flavors of coconut and soursop are fantastic,
