I've heard this is supposed to be the Best Ice cream in Girona/the world. I have to ask if the people saying this have ever tried Ice cream before. Was it their first time eating ice cream. Seriously the ice cream flavours are interesting but thats where it stops. The texture is mr whippy and the toppings a little bland... More

This ice cream is legendary. Seriously! The flavors are really cool: toast?! Yep. I've had the violet coconut (which was dairy free!) and it was soooo good and the cucumber mint basil was also really good. Definitely give this place a go!

If you eat with your eyes, go. If you eat fashion, go. If you eat names, go. If you like glaces, a place you can go with your wallet. Not cheap.

We stopped in during a foodie tour of Girona. My wife and I both got the panet, which is ice cream with toppings inside a warm bun. We got the panettone and the chocolate with the recommended toppings. It is definitely worth stopping by. Our daughter got one of the popsicles, but wouldn't let us try it. So, for what... More

I went in with great expectation after reading reviews. I tried their apple? flavor. It was disgusting. I took one bite and threw it out.

With lots of different toppings for your ice cream, you'll have fun creating your perfect one. Worth waiting in the queues for.

That's amazing to find an ice cream shop on the city made and created by the best dessert cook all over the world, Mr Roca one of the three brothers of Can Roca Restaurant. Little space with funny and flavour ice cream combined with secret addeds. Great!!!

Was told by friends not to miss this and was very pleasantly surprised to stumble across it after exiting our hotel just round the corner. Opened by the Roca brothers of the famous Can Roca (Michelin star) restaurant where reservations are required up to 1 year ahead. First thing that attracts you is the long queue but don't be put...

I enjoyed the gelato after a tour of the city. I heard that the shop was famous and featured on a cooking or traveling show. The shop was quaint. The gelato was very good. They offered toppings and waffle cones. It was a nice ending to a long walk.

I tried the hot bun with cold ice-cream inside just AMAZING. Such a good idea. It is a must try. The ice cream is great and the toppings varied.
