it is just to eat sweets, ice-cream is the best there. I always taste the same flavour, mango and nothing else but there is a lot of choice

If there was no queue, you would not even see the entrance of the ice cream shop !
Be prepared to queue few minutes, pay first at the till, then order to one of the server behind the counter (in peak season/hours).
After this pressure and stress, you will understand why people, like me, have recommended this place.

... Lick at will the ice cream that you have just purchased, and enjoy the taste of a freshly made ice cream!

There was not such a long line when we went there, otherwise I would not have bothered. The system for ordering is not the easiest, you pay first and choose flavors later. There are three choices, one scoop-two flavors and so on, not that easy to understand but they mix the two flavors in one scoop. It is quite expensive here and I think they should have more inventive flavors, such as licorice. The passion fruit that I had was very good, the strawberry not really impressing. I have had much better ice cream other places- especially in Italy.

It's amazing how clever marketing and a medium like Trip advisor can inflate the mediocre into the magnificent. Anyone who has any taste for ice cream will immediately see through this place. The ice cream is watery, not creamy as it should be. The flavour options are unremarkable, as are the flavours the flavours themselves. After your expectations are built up during the 15 minute queue time, you must pay before receiving your order, which is cynical as the ice cream is in covered and not visible. Frankly, either the excellent reviews here are fake (no doubt a few are) or a lot of people have lost all critical faculties. Don't waste your money. Though if you like overpriced, flavoured ice in a cup, go for it!

I love ice cream so was looking forward to tasting this ice cream as seeing the queues out the door & reviews it had gotten I thought this has to be good. Unfortunately there seems to be a major hype surrounding the place. It's 2 lines system was confusing you have to queue to pay then queue again to get the ice cream plus you have to know exactly what you flavours you want too, as the basically time is money.

The actual ice cream is just average for the price you pay, I had much nicer in the other ice cream parlour down the road.

Over all was not overly impressed a 99 cone from a ice cream van would have been better.
