One of the finest ice-creams ever tasted around Europe! Hidden in a narrow pedestrian passage, just above and running parallel (as the name indicates!) with Diagonal Av, and about 100 meters from La Rambla. Previous reviews revealed the place, suggested as one-of-the-top-places for dessert and...More

We have ordered though Glovo App several times and the quality of the ice-cream is just on of the bests in Barcelona. We will repeat for sure. Recommended : Chocolate, Pistachio, Straciatella.

Creamy smooth and simply delicious! There are classic flavours and other flavours that change based on the fresh ingredients that they find in the market/season! Pistachios is the best ever!

Very nice. Thanks for giving samples of different ice creams. Would eat more if I could. Probably next time will walk again 30 min for this ice cream. Loved pistachio.

As we are passionate fans of Gelato, (we scoured Rome on a daily basis in search of "il miglior gelato") this was on our advance list of places to check out. And because this place was close to our hotel, we ended up going there...More

This place tops Barcelona food charts for a reason! What an unusual and special place. Great choice of flavours - both traditional and creative ones (cannabis, gorgonzola :)). Ice cream was superb, somehow you can feel the raw ingredients and flavours. The guys were super...More

It’s a bit hidden from the beaten tracks but such a great discovery! It tastes very well, good flavors and good texture! I never thought I’d like the coconut stracciatella until I tried it there! The saffron and the habanero spicy chocolate were on point....More

Gracia literally stands out from the pack. It used to
be an independent town until late into the 19th
century. Though it’s just a short commute away from
the centre, a visit here feels like you’re in a whole
different city. The bohemian vibe has drawn many
international artists to this area, resulting in a
wide selection of galleries, live music and artsy
boutique stores. The nightlife is centered around the
