excellent ice cream and super friendly staff. We usually go in summer when in Malta on holiday and the choice is incredible. The only problem is that it can get very busy. if going with children I'd recommend going in the afternoon rather than the evening :-)

The best ice cream shop on the island. Always served with a smile and so many flavours to choose from. Price per scoop is super too and each scoop is a very good portion unlike other ice cream shops. Even on a cold day..it's a must for ice cream lovers.

So many flavours plus sugar free. Coffee and cakes too. Friendly staff very helpful and will let you try the flavours. Inexpensive and very popular with old and young a must if you are in Bugibba just off the square. Temptation every time you pass.

We are a family of four and have tried most of the flavours between us. Our favourites in no particular order are pistachio, nocchiola (hazelnut based) and fior di latte (plain milk based flavour). Top value for money and friendly service. Definitely worth a visit.

This is definitely considered to be one of the best ice cream parlors on the island, offering a large variety of flavours, as well as gluten-free, vegan, sugar free and fat free options. The prices are reasonable and the service is very good.

We heard many times about this place , so we headed from Birkirkara to Buggiba to try it but unfortunately we didn't receive a smily service and she was trying to harry us up . The ice cream is overrated , it's really not more than average . We'll never come back.

One of the best spot in the Island for a fresh & delicious ice cream. It's located in Bugibba, close by the Square.
