My husband and I wandered into this gelateria after hearing good things online. There were more than 20 flavors to choose from but the service attendant behind the counter was very annoyed when we asked to sample 2 flavors. In my opinion, it is completely reasonable to sample flavors, especially when there are exotic fruit flavors that one doesn't have... More

Cute little gelato place. Interesting and different flavors with local fruits - they will let you taste them first which is nice. . They are open late so we can have dessert after dinner. Warning... the dark chocolate is great but super rich.

There's definitely a fun variety of flavors here: maracuya, lulo, etc. However, the gelato doesn't have a great texture nor is it super flavorful in the way I'm used to gelato (from Italy, or even from chains in Mexico) tasting. Still, a fun place to recharge while walking through the super hot city of Cartagena. They have AC here, too!

Convenient location in the walled city. Not the friendliest service, but the ice cream is good and the interior is fun.

If you have a craving for ice cream, this place offers unique flavors, including local fruits like chivalry and guanabana. The place looks quaint, reminds me of a place that serves English tea!

We stopped by on a hot day as a party of 6. Let me start off by saying we LOVED the ice cream and we ordered 6 different flavors to cool us down and delight us. We had Salted Caramel, Coconut, Mango, Pistachio, Maracuya and Pasas al Ron (like rum ice cream). You cant go wrong with any of those... More

Good enough icecream, not great! Tramonti gelato is much better! The chocolate has not a strong flavor as I would expect and the prices are too high!

We found this place thanks to the suggestion of our waiter at Totopo (which is the subject of another review). Paradiso has nearly 20 types of ice cream beautifully displayed in a beautifully decorated store. I tried the dark chocolate all four times that I was there and, believe me, there is a reason for that consistency:) They also have... More

Expensive but really good icecream, would be nice to have some basic flavours though. Most are mixes of different flavours

It was almost 11 am, and suddenly, Fer was craving for ice cream. The problem it's that before 11 am many stores are still closed... So we find this ice cream store opened.... Of course it was empty, but he was very happy about the ice cream. It's cute inside. Nice place
