Was told by friends not to miss this and was very pleasantly surprised to stumble across it after exiting our hotel just round the corner. Opened by the Roca brothers of the famous Can Roca (Michelin star) restaurant where reservations are required up to 1 year ahead. First thing that attracts you is the long queue but don't be put...

I enjoyed the gelato after a tour of the city. I heard that the shop was famous and featured on a cooking or traveling show. The shop was quaint. The gelato was very good. They offered toppings and waffle cones. It was a nice ending to a long walk.

I tried the hot bun with cold ice-cream inside just AMAZING. Such a good idea. It is a must try. The ice cream is great and the toppings varied.

The place is fun. I had ice-cream inside a kind of cake. The dough is hot but the ice-cream was not melted, it was very good but I don't think the ice-cream is really special. There are a lot of good toppings and sauce to put on your ice cream

A very trendy looking shop just off of Independence Square. The selection of flavours wont appeal to every one, but you will find one you like and the tub v cone dilemma and choice of sizes and sprinkles will keep you trying more and more.

A small ice cream parlour with a small choice of flavours but a huge choice of toppings. A fun experience and a great taste experience. An ice cream like no other. I can heartily recommend the baked apple flavour. It was divine. Well worth the queue!!

Owned by one of the Roca brothers, one of the best chefs in the world for desserts, they make icecream with very special and innovative flavours. Recommended all, also most classical are excellent.
