After visiting Tenerife several time over the years this is by far the best ice cream on the Island. It is really pointless to compare this to other ice cream placed in the area - as good as the best gelaterias in Italy.

Visited a few times now and selection abailable changes on every visit.
My way visit was in search of Liqurice Ice Cream and found the best I've ever had here, made from a special Liqurice mixture he imports from Holland.
The owner is Christian who loves talking about his Gelato (not Ice cream). Gelato is made at a slightly warmer tempreture -14° because it's made with fresh ingredients and only fresh milk. Christian only uses Fresh Pasturised Milk delivered that day unlike the mass produced Ice Cream companies that use milk powders and chemical flavouring.
My 2nd visit was more adventurous, I tried his Goats Cheese Gelato. OK if you like cheese but not for me.
Today I had a mixed Chocolate and Coffee. The Chocolate was pure dark and full of intense chocolate flavour as was the coffee. Being a very hot day i got my hands covered in it. I probably looked like a big kid.
So many more flavours I want to try I'll be back soon.
They are all Sugar Free, Gluton Free and he even has Vegan options.

This is the place to visit if you need your ice cream fix! Proper homemade ice cream and sorbets that are packed full of flavour. All of the flavours we tried were delicious including peanut butter, mint choc chip and coconut. The coconut had lots of desiccated coconut and was not too sweet. The peanut butter flavour was smooth and unctuous whilst the mint choc chip had the perfect balance of mint and dark chocolate.
Delicious, delicious, delicious!
Highly recommended!

This tiny gelateria is fantastic. The flavours change with each visit. Recipes to suit all tastes and so reasonably priced. I'll be sure to make a special effort to return here. Friendly and helpful owner who can be seen hard at work making the icecream.
A brilliant place.

The owner of this little jem is a passionate ice cream maker. It is the best ice cream ever. Don't miss the white chocolate with basil - a taste sensation!
