Does what it says on the tin, great scoops of creamy gelato with a good choice of flavours too. We wandered by after 2100 and people were queuing up so we did too. Nice chap serving too in what appears to be a family run place in Arcachon.

ok, it's only ice cream isn't it? But I have to say I was well impressed with quality (raspberry and peach) and quantity. Also the queue length hinted that this was certainly the place to go... it did not disappoint!

We walked past several gelato stands and this one just caught our eye. It is a little smaller, but the flavors of the gelato are just magnificent. We had several different ones and they were all very good. The price was a nice surprise and a the employees were very friendly.

The best ice cream in the area. Home made ice cream. Many different flavors . We liked the malabar. Kids loved it. Good size/price . You must try it.

Visited on Monday night and the ice cream is so tasty. Difficult however to rate an ice cream parlour against restaurants but well worth a visit

Generous portion of lovely ice-cream. Honey/Orange & Nougat flavour ice-cream is lush. And for money-minded travelers 20% cheaper than its competitor...

The guy is super nice every time we get ice cream. Super forgiving of our pitiful attempts to order in French. Rocher is the way to go, but his sorbets are really good as well (not as tart as most).
