“Best gelato in Santiago - a Must-Do!”
Reviewed 7 December 2013 via mobile

A gelato lover's paradise!
With great variety of flavours ranging from distinctly Chilean (lucuma, chirimoya & pie limon) to international (tiramisu, carmel & peanut). Chocolate lovers are also spoiled for choice with Armargo, Suiso & Mo - all of which are exquisite!

I have been taking friends, colleagues, locals & tourists to Mo for almost a year & EVERY ONE of them has LOVED it. Mo has a flavour for everyone & if in doubt, ask to try the flavour before you chose (or try 2 or 3!)

It is true that the staff almost always look grumpy or unfriendly, but they are always quick & efficient in their service. It's a shame the staff don't smile, but I guarantee you will once you try their delicious gelato.

“Just delicious!”
Reviewed 19 November 2013

If you are looking for good ice cream in Santiago de Chile Gelateria MO's is the place to go!
I spent four months in Santiago and the ice cream there is by far the best one I tried. They offer a wide variety of flavours and the servings are really big and worth the money. I recommend trying out chocolate blanco con arándanos or pie de limón - just delicious!

Especially in summer it can get pretty crowdy on weekends and on holidays but the staff is always friendly and tries to serve everyone as fast as possible. The place is easy to reach as it is right outside of the Bellas Artes metro station and closed to the beautiful district Lastarria.

Go and try it out, you won't regrett it!

“Best Ice Cream in Santiago!”
Reviewed 20 July 2013

When you come to Santiago, you'll hear from many that the best ice cream you can get is from Emporio La Rosa. Although it has *okay* ice cream, I can guarantee you it won't be better than from Mo! I spent a semester in Santiago during which a friend showed me this ice cream place. I cannot count how many times I went after that first time. The serving sizes are huge, the flavours are unique, AND it's located right in the city center :)

“Delicious”
Reviewed 16 July 2013

Delicious ice cream in a very nice street in Santiago Centro. All the flavours we tasted were amazing and the staff was agile and helpful. I will definitely go back during my stay in the city.

“My favourite in Santiago”
Reviewed 28 May 2013

Santiago is not Italy but you'll find some decent ice creams and MO is my favourite place in teh city center. The staff is not the most friendly one but they do their job fine, just don't expect a lot of smiling. Another pleasant detail: their serving size is large which is a nice bonus. When you go, try the Chocolate Mo!
