The year and a half long search for the best ice cream in Buenos Aires always takes me back to Arkakao. I've yet to find a place that serves better. I never have a problem spending a few extra pesos for this creamy, delicious helado. Pomelo rosado is perfect for summer and the pistachio is a rare find in this city. Go!

We tasted helado and gelato everywhere we went, including the highly praised Freddo (disappointing) and several excellent places in Mendoza and El Calafate, but this was the best. Arkakao had fewer but better flavors, creamy and smooth texture, and servers with flair. Wherever you are in BA, make sure you get to this place on Santa Fe street for a real taste of gelato de Roma.

3 medium scoops in a medium cup, 32 pesos, very good quality, one that I had was the hazelnut, avellana in spanish, that was very flavorful.

Don't be put off by the sign in the window that says this is a gelato place. Yes, they serve gelato but they also serve some excellent italian food in an tiny, intimate but classicly styled restaurant. The food is rich and tasty, offering excellent risottos, osso buco and pastas. The service is calm and efficient. My wife & I have been three times and never been disappointed.
