“Not very good and expensive”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2014

I am a lover of gelato and chose their Choco-Almendra (chocolate almond). The lady behind the counter told me it would be a certain price, but when I went to pay it was double. She said the almonds and other nuts are imported and therefore more expensive. Ummm... sounds iffy, but at least they need to put a sign warning you of double prices!!

“Amazing strawberry, let down by vanilla”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2014 via mobile

The Freda was definitely a five star and the waffle cone was yum but disappointed with the vanilla as it had a strange aftertaste.

“Yup...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2014

This is the one...... Very divine ice cream, very kitsch setting - and better I think than the one on the corner - I prefer scoops to sticks anyway. Enjoy.

“Accidentally ran into this place.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2014 via mobile

Ice cream in Cartagena is unique and made with local fruits. This place had a great mango and coconut ice cream. We absolutely love the ice cream and the place was very modestly decorated. It had a quaint charm to it.

“Great icecream!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2014 via mobile

For only 4000 peso each and many different native fruit flavours, this is a must for gelato enthusiasts!
Great indoor seating to watch the world go by with an amazing icecream in hand. They also offer brownies and delicious banana splits!
