Great choice of flavours and even if you only order a small cup, you can still choose 2 flavours, well worth a visit, just off the beach front promenade, well worth a visit.

We are frequent Tenerifers and discovered this place on our most recent trip. Been open a year and is BY FAR the best ice cream we have tasted ever!!! Home made, special new flavours everyday! Pistachio and coconut up there on the list of favourites!! MUST TRY!!!

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.
